Taste test: Unlike some of the limited-edition Oreos that get lots of prerelease buzz before we can find any, this one just popped up out nowhere. And oh, boy did it pop up! Lots of stores suddenly had huge, not-so-limited supplies. And they even packaged them in the same 15.25-oz. packages as original Oreos, rather than the 10.7-oz. ones that have been used lately for limited editions.
The sandwiches looked like regular Oreos, with no change in color to the cookies or filling. But when we crunched in, they certainly didn't taste the same. There was a strong, sweet, fake-fruit flavor that quite reminded us of Fruity Pebbles cereal. It reminded us even more of a past (non-mystery) limited-edition Oreo: Fruity Crisp Oreo, which added some colorful spots to the white filling but otherwise seemed the same as these. The flavor just didn’t work as an Oreo filling. Too sweet, and didn't go well with the chocolate. Don't even try it without some milk to wash it down. I think people are going to end up with a lot of unfinished packages of these!
Aroma: Very sweet, like Fruity Pebbles.
