Sweet Flavor, but Doesn’t Really Belong in These Cookies
The cookie aisle is a dangerous place in the grocery store – or at least it is for me. I was walking down it recently when I spotted Chips Ahoy! had a new flavor out – Oreo Creme Filled. I was curious, so I had to try it.
These cookies are in the Chewy line of Chips Ahoy! cookies, meaning they are softer cookies. Since those are the cookies I prefer, that is a point in their favor.
And these cookies are just as you’d picture them. From the outside, they look like your standard chocolate chip cookie. However, inside they hide a layer of white cream that is usually at the center of an Oreo cookie.
Now don’t misunderstand what I am about to say. I love Oreo cookies. And their creamy middle is wonderful with the chocolate outer cookies. However, they don’t belong in a chocolate chip cookie. The Oreo cream overwhelms the rest of the cookie, so it is all you can taste. The result is just very sweet. It’s not bad, but it needs more other flavor to balance it out.
This is one combination that shouldn’t have happened. It’s not bad, but it’s not that great either. I won’t be tempted to buy Oreo Creme Filled again in the future. I'll stick with Oreos or regular Chips Ahoy! cookies.
