OREO Thins Review
The fab folks at OREO are really trying to keep up the creativity, launching ANOTHER new version of America's Favorite Cookie. Meet the OREO Thins.
According to a press release, OREO Thins are for "adults looking for a more grown up take on their favorite childhood cookie."
It's the same sandwich cookie you know, just flattened down into a crispier, much more delicate cookie.
Bougie OREOs. They are expected to be a permanent addition to the OREO lineup, and are currently available in three flavors: Original, Golden, and Mint. The suggested retail price is $4.59, with about 40 cookies in each package. They hit stores nationwide on Monday, July 13.
So here's the deal. They taste exactly like regular OREOs, and the cream-to-cookie ratio seems to be the same, it's all just a lot thinner. The cookies are definitely crispy, so if that's what you love in cookies, these will be right up your alley.
I don't know if it's the way they are packaged, or just the delicate nature of the cookies, but it did seem that a good amount of the OREO Thins were broken when I opened them. These are also not meant to be twisted open and dunked.
These are not necessarily "diet" cookies either. A serving of OREO Thins is 4 cookies for 140 calories. A serving of regular OREOs is 3 cookies for 160 calories.
I think these would be perfect for cookies and cream recipes, as a lot of times the regular cookies wind up getting soggy, but these seem like they would hold up better.
For regular cookie-eating purposes though, I'll be sticking to the original version. I don't want adult cookies. The best part about eating cookies is that they make you feel like a kid. (And the best part of OREOs is twisting them open, and licking the cream filling inside!)
If for some reason, you desire a fancy cookie --and you hate Milanos-- you'll be all over these.
