I’m an adventurous eater by nature. My basic rule of food enjoyment is that if it isn’t too exotic, bizarre, or mobile and noisy, then it is edible, and therefore, something I will try. I have a particular weakness/fondness/obsession with snack foods. What makes snack food so tempting, besides sugary awesomeness?
“Limited Edition” written on the package.
I was picking up my weekly groceries on Thursday night at Target, when I spotted these on a display in the grocery section, near all of the seasonal foodstuffs. It’s the same section I bought two previous items I’ve tested – Jones Soda Halloween Flavors and Chocolate Chili Milano cookies. In those instances, I gave both items favorable reviews.
Will the Blueberry Pie Oreo stack up?
Ok, it does stack up into a cool Leaning Tower of Oreo Goodness, but will it “stack up” in the limited edition snack food awesomeness.
Will I stop trying to be punny…I mean funny?! Stick around, we’ll find out!
So this is the Blueberry Pie Oreo:
Sandwich cookies flavored with graham:
With blueberry cream filling:
It’s everything you want in martian cookie foostuff!
On initial smell, it definitely has the distinct scent of blueberry pie, which is a good thing. So we’re already off to a good start!
But how does it taste?
The filling itself is creamier than your standard Oreo icing, which makes it easier to lick off of the cookie without a huge chunk of icing being disrupted. This icing coats the cookie, rather than sitting like a flat disk of icing on the cookie. While you can peel off the icing on a standard Oreo cookie with your fingers, this acts like cake icing in its consistency and I like being able to lick the icing and it actually behaves like cake icing. Yum!
As for the taste, it has the distinct blueberry taste to it that I was expecting. And yes, it was delicious. My mom was a little skeptical and glad she didn’t spend money on these, but as a limited edition flavor, I was satisfied with the taste. Eating the cookie intact, rather than in parts like I normally eat Oreos, yielded a definite pie taste when all parts were combined.
Did I enjoy the cookie Yes, I did! Would I eat them again? I could see where a limited edition flavor like this one would get tiresome, but I won’t throw out the whole package for fear of getting tired of them. These are definitely a one-off purchase in my world, but they were good, and I’m glad I gave them a shot.
Do I recommend giving the Blueberry Pie Oreos a try? If you like blueberry pie, and don’t mind the idea of blue-tinted martian-like Oreo cream, then yes.
Though in some views, they look almost purple…and still alien-like. But still tasty.
Where to Find Them: Target is carrying the cookies exclusively. If you’re adventurous like I am, give it a try.
Enjoy the alien-colored goodness. 🙂
