OK~ Oreo cookies are not something that I indulge in. But, due to the fact that the North Iowa Bloggers gathered for a sampling of the new Oreo flavors, I may now need to indulge. We did not sample the so-called "normal" Oreos that you find on the shelves all year long. We were able to find eight Fall flavors. We sampled all of them and came up with a favorite.
Beth Ann of It's Just Life, hosted our North Iowa Blogger get together. She rolled out the red carpet for us bloggers and had set up an awesome "taste testing" station. Isn't this cool?
I know that you all want to know what these results were. Well, I do believe we all had similar taste buds. We did end up with several partial Berry Oreos, which landed in the trash! Amy, of Modern Rural Living was ready to chuck this one!
My least favorite was the Berry- Quite honestly I thought they tasted like pink medicine! I also think it's fair to say that others felt the same way. Katy of Learning As I Go expressed the dislike as much as I did!
Next, I would have to say Pumpkin Spice and Rootbeer did absolutely nothing for me. I would NEVER pay money for these. The Pumpkin Spice really had a strange taste- and the Rootbeer tasted good, until my tasted buds had time to absorb the bitter taste! Yes, I said bitter, and that's how it was.
Vanilla and Chocolate Birthday Cake tasted just like regular Oreos to me! They scored an even "like."
The Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough was OK, nothing have to go running to the store to buy- but they were edible.
The Peanut Butter Oreo Cookies won overall- with all of the North Iowa Bloggers for the best tasting! Val of Corn, Beans, Pigs and Kids LOVED the Peanut Butter Oreos!
Although my favorite was Caramel Apple. I can say that I will buy these- I thought they were fantastic. Jeni of Jeni Eats is the food blogger of our group and I am anxious to see if she will come up with some awesome recipes from any of these!
So, tell me, are you an avid Oreo fan? What flavors are your favorite? The North Iowa Bloggers are always up to trying new products- Remember all of those Lays chips they tasted? This group is always up for fun. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
