Taste test: When we reviewed the new Dark Chocolate Oreos, it seemed appropriate to compare them against this longtime flavor — until we realized we'd neglected to actually review these. So it's time to formally do that.
Just like the dark ones, these started with the standard Oreo chocolate cookies, but the filling looked very different, with a very light brown color, so it couldn't remotely be confused with the Dark ones, whose brown filling was about as dark as it could be without being pitch black. I crunched in to find that the taste was about what you'd expect, with a stronger chocolate than regular Oreos, but not quite so much as the Dark ones. The creme still tasted creamy, providing some contrast to the chocolate cookies, yet I could notice the additional chocolate in the creme.
I've never complained that original Oreos don't have enough chocolate to give me a rush, so I don't see any major need for these to exist. In both cases, they go best with cold milk.

Smell test: A lot like original Oreos, as you can still smell the creme and not just the chocolate, but probably a bit more chocolatey.
From the package: “Always made with real cocoa” ... “At Oreo we cocoa, so we use real cocoa in every chocolatey Oreo cookie we make.” ... “Wonderfilled”
