Taste test: This version of Oreos from Indonesia initially looked to be the limited-edition Reese's ones with a different package and name, but there were quite a few surprises to come.
The square-profile box looked to contain one stack of Oreos. And indeed it did, but the first surprise when we opened the box was that it wasn't filled directly with Oreos or with a simple clear plastic bag holding the stack of cookies, but rather a shelf-worthy foil tube that appeared to meet the same labeling requirements as the box, except with different languages. The tube included Indonesian, Thai and Vietnamese; the box was in Chinese and English.
The cookies' appearance surprised a bit. The illustrations on both the box and tube showed a split creme filling between peanut butter and chocolate. It was indeed split, but the chocolate was darker than shown, and the PB noticeably lighter. It wasn't white, but it looked that way on first glance, as it was just a bit off-white and looked very light when contrasted against the dark cookie when peeking into an unopened sandwich.
The surprises continued, and this next one's a biggie! Three of the sandwiches had one of their cookies reversed; that is to say, the Oreo-branded side faced inward toward the filling, and the flat side was on the sandwich's exterior. It didn't affect the taste, but that's a quality control problem that I've never seen on any Oreos before. It did make for an impressive look when pulling off the misaligned cookie (as pictured above), with the Oreo designs imprinted in the dual-color filling attached to the other side.
As for the taste, it was much like those Reese's-branded ones (which happened to be a real standout).
