Taste test: After offering up two Peeps-themed Oreos for Easter in the last two years (with golden cookies in 2017 and chocolate ones in 2018), the Nabisco folks really cranked up their efforts this time!
Despite the wide variety of flavor and colors of the limited edition Oreos we've reviewed, none deviated from being round, but this time, they took on an egg shape. They also created four Easter-themed designs for the cookie faces, plus an adaptation of the standard Oreo design to fit the new shape for the opposite side. Plus, the filling was purple!
In creating the egg shape, they kept the long dimension about the same as usual while trimming the other one. The result was a noticeably smaller sandwich. The package had 21 of them, but it weighed only 8.5 oz., making this the lightest limited-edition package yet.
The taste and crunch were pretty much standard Oreos, as the purple filling didn't seem to have any special flavor.
