Hint of Marshmallow Isn’t Enough to Make Me Love These Oreos
I am a sucker for anything marshmallow. (Ironically enough, I don’t buy regular marshmallows very often. Probably because the entire bag would be gone in one sitting.) So when I spotted the Chocolate Marshmallow variety of Oreos, I had to give them a try.
Like a traditional Oreo, these have two chocolate cookies. This time, the filling is a dark brown color and it is supposed to be flavored like a chocolate covered marshmallow.
The problem is the marshmallow flavor is mostly swallowed by the chocolate. Now, this isn’t to say that the flavor is bad; I do like chocolate after all. But I was looking for more marshmallow flavoring. You can taste it a bit more if you eat the crème in the middle by itself. However, the cookies overwhelm it if you just pop the whole thing in your mouth.
As I said, the taste isn’t bad, but it wasn’t what I was looking for. Which is probably a good thing since I don’t need more junk food to tempt me in the store. I wouldn’t turn down Chocolate Marshmallow Oreos if someone offered them to me, but I won’t be buying them again for myself.
