Taste test: These Oreos used a noticeably different formula than some other limited editions that split a single filling layer into two types (like Candy Corn Oreo, PB&J Oreo or Jelly Donut Oreo), as this one instead had two thinner layers stacked on top of each other. Depending on which way you hold the cookie, it was a white layer over a brown layer, or the other way around.
I bit in to find a whole lot of chocolate, very nice. But despite the two huge marshmallows pictured in the mug on the package — and the use of marshmallows to replace the letter O three times in the words "Hot Cocoa" — it didn't taste like the white layer provided any marshmallow taste. It seemed to be the standard Oreo creme. Nor did the combination really taste like a cup of hot chocolate. Basically, it tasted like a regular Oreo with a little more chocolate and a little less creme. With all of that chocolate, I would highly recommend some cold milk. Pretty good.
Aroma: Definitely different from regular Oreos, and probably because of the inclusion of chocolate creme, but it didn't really smell like hot chocolate.
