Taste test: For years, we've documented the ever-smaller package sizes for limited-edition Oreos, but it seems that the new decade has brought real change to the Oreo brand, as this one was not only not smaller than a regular Oreos package — it was actually bigger, upping the weight from the standard 15.25 ounces to the family-size 17 oz. (It actually wasn't described on the package as a limited edition, a label that Oreo seems to be moving away from, as they simply proclaimed "New!" on this one.)
The sandwiches were supposed to contain bits of marshmallow embedded within the chocolate cookie, and the filling was supposed to be chocolate-flavored marshmallow. I could definitely see the white marshmallow bits in the cookie, and the filling was a uniform brown, quite a bit lighter than the cookie. I crunched in to find a whole lot of chocolate, enhanced by the creme, with some marshmallow flavor but not lots. But I could definitely feel the chewiness of the marshmallow bits embedded into the cookie, a complete contrast to the rest of the crumbly cookie, the marshmallows were dense and quite chewy.
Finally, an oddity with this one: Three of the sandwiches had one of their cookies reversed, so the flat side was facing outward. We've seen this a few other times, but it's a rarity for something like this to get past Oreo quality control.

Smell test: Kind of marshmallowy, definitely different from standard Oreos.
From the package: “Marshmallow pieces in cookie with chocolate marshmallow flavor cream artificially flavored” ... “Nabisco Family size!”
