Oreo lovers rejoice! The limited edition Tiramisu Oreo have begun to hit shelves across the US, making quarantine that much more interesting. I don’t know if any Oreo can live up to the Chocolate Marshmallow Oreos that were released last year, but I just had to give the Tiramisu cookies a try just in case.
Upon opening the package, I could smell a sweet aroma with hints of coffee. Now if you have never tried tiramisu, it’s a layered dessert comprised of ladyfingers dipped in coffee, a pudding-like mixture made with mascarpone cheese, and cocoa powder. That’s a lot of flavor to live up to but somehow Oreo managed to capture them all in one cookie.
The Tiramisu Oreos feature the same cookie that we all know and love with two layers of cream in between. The tan creme tastes brings out the coffee flavor of a quintessential tiramisu. In addition to the coffee flavor, the white creme resembles that of an Italian sweet cream.
Overall, I think the Tiramisu Oreos are a pleasant addition to the product portfolio. These cookies are quite sweet so I don’t see myself being able to eat that many in one sitting, which is probably for the best anyway. However, I think a Tiramisu Oreo with my morning latte is just the thing I need to get myself through these monotonous days in quarantine.
You can find the Tiramisu Oreo cookies in Target and Walmart stores nationwide. Be sure to check the product locator on each retailer’s website to make sure the item is in stock at your local store before you visit.
In the latest of brand partnerships, Supreme teamed up with Oreo to bring consumers a Supreme Oreo cookie. The Oreo cookie will now take on a red hue synonymous with the luxury brand. One pack of three Supreme Oreos will retail for a whopping $8 as reported by multiple sources. I’m not on the Supreme hype train so you can definitely count me out on this one. Excuse me while I go buy a full size pack of Oreos for $3.
Dunkin’ Donuts in Chocolate Form
Dunkin’ Donuts plans to expand further into the candy arena with their new coffee bars. At 210 calories a pop, these creamy coffee treats combine chocolate and caffeine. It appears the coffee bars will be available in four flavors: Original, Hazelnut, French Vanilla, and Caramel. I am curious to try a candy bar that, “Looks like chocolate [and] Tastes like coffee.” For the amount of calories per bar, I may just opt for a regular latte instead.
Bring on the Hidden Valley Ranch Secret Sauce
Hidden Valley Ranch is bringing out the big guns with the new secret sauce. There are three varieties including original, smokehouse, and spicy. I wonder if this will be like any other secret sauce which usually tastes like thousand island dressing. Nevertheless, I am here for it. These sauces will hit Walmart stores beginning April 2020.
The Texas State Fair is almost open, and soon we will be
inundated with corny dogs, funnel cakes, and literally any other fried food you
can think of. Earlier this year, Sonic launched a collection of state fair
inspired foods from fried jalapeno poppers to the Oreo a La Mode.
Picture the state fair; people all around; the sweet smell
of fried batter and powdered sugar in the air. That is the exact image that
comes to mind with the Oreo a La Mode. Not only does Sonic give you three fried
Oreos, they also throw in a small side of ice cream for dipping purposes. Even
though I have visited the state fair multiple times in the past, I have never
tried a fried Oreo. Let me just say, I now understand all the hype.
A sweet, crunchy batter coats each Oreo and smells exactly
like a funnel cake you could expect to get at the state fair. Break the Oreo in
half and you will find a softened Oreo cookie with a creamy center. It’s everything
you love in a traditional Oreo but elevated. The side of ice cream adds another
layer of flavor and makes the dessert more complete. This pair resembles a
delicious, over the top Oreo funnel cake without all the mess.
I do recommend sharing this dessert with a friend or significant
other because they are incredibly rich. I managed to eat one Oreo dipped in ice
cream and was left feeling satisfied. In total, the Oreo a La Mode will cost
you 590 calories with nearly half of those calories coming from fat. Due to the
nutrition facts alone, I would not go out of my way to eat this item. However,
if you are looking for a state fair experience without the exorbitant prices
and people, Sonic is a good substitute.
