Taste test: "Landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth," as described by President Kennedy in May of 1961, was a pretty big deal, and it was completed successfully just over eight years later, in July of 1969. Despite making a cookie that has the same shape as a full moon, it took far longer for Oreos to commemorate the moon landing, but now they've done it with this limited edition package, just under 50 years later.

The special efforts for this product included: 1) Three space-themed designs for one of the external cookie faces, with one depicting a crescent moon with some stars; another showing Neil Armstrong or Buzz Aldrin posing with the American flag; and oddly, a third design depicting the Space Shuttle, which was many years away at the time of the moon landing. 2) A lavender-colored filling, much like the Peeps Oreos. 3) A marshmallow flavor for that filling. 4) Some glow-in-the-dark stuff on the package, including some of the white lettering on the front and three detachable stickers on the back (with three editions each providing a different set of stickers).

The cookies didn't taste much different from regular Oreos. I couldn't notice much in the way of marshmallow as distinct from standard Oreo filling. Still, they were good Oreos.

Smell test: A little different from the usual — I could smell some marshmallow.
