Taste test: When I spotted this in the cookie aisle, it looked on first glance like just a mint variation of the Fudge Covered Oreo that we reviewed four months earlier. But after noticing some odd fine print on the box — specifically: "enlarged to show details, serving size 1 cookie" — I became curious. The part before the comma is fairly standard stuff on all food packaging, and the last part is nothing unusual in these days of portion sizing. But combining them together, separated by a comma, was downright weird. Are they required to have a disclaimer simply for having pictured two cookies on the box? Is this about preempting frivolous lawsuits? I don't know!
So I looked more closely and found that there had been quite a change beyond adding mint. Both packages contained 12 cookies, but the non-mint ones were much smaller, with a two-cookie serving size totaling 180 calories, vs. a one-cookie serving of this one being 120 calories. The whole box of non-mint weighed in at 7.9 ounces, while this one was 9.9 ounces.
The cookies were arranged in three rows of four on a plastic tray. I bit in to find that the coating was thick, and the creme filling was green (a contrast to the white creme in similar coated Oreos from the past, 2005's Pure Milk Chocolate Covered Mint Oreo and 2006's Fudge Mint Covered Oreo). The coating felt melty on my fingertips, and the combination of fudge coating, chocolate cookie, creme and mint was nicely balanced and tasted as good as it sounds.

Smell test: Good chocolate mint smell, but not the amazing sensation that combinations like this usually provide.
From the package: “enlarged to show detail, serving size 1 cookie” ... “Made in Mexico”
