Taste test: These limited-edition Oreos are evidently a Kroger exclusive, and they mark a return to the Oreo practice of splitting the filling between two different flavor/colors, as we've previously seen in Cotton Candy, Candy Corn, Caramel Apple and Watermelon. The cookies were of the Golden Oreo variety. The peanut butter filling was almost the same color as the cookie, and the jelly was kind of dark purplish.
Because of the split filling configuration, it was easy to tell which of the fillings I was biting into by looking at the edge. I bit in first on the PB side, and the taste was a lot like a Nutter Butter. As for the jelly, it was sweet and fruity, but it really didn't feel or taste much like jelly. Pulling one open, it certainly didn't look like jelly — it looked like the usual congealed creme filling, except purple. Taking a bite that included both fillings was a good mix of tastes, but it only remotely reminded me of a PB&J sandwich. Not bad, but I do wonder why they didn't try using actual jelly, which seems to this cookie eater (who knows little about cookie manufacturing) to be a workable way to deliver a far better PB&J experience.

Smell test: Smells like peanut butter cookies with jelly, but not quite like a PB&J sandwich.
From the package: “Limited Edition” ... “Peanut Butter flavor creme + Jelly flavor creme = PB&J cookie magic”
