Taste test: Continuing a year of unprecedented growth in new flavors, Oreo has unleashed this ice cream-themed flavor right on the heels of one based on the Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake bar. In this case, they've modified the standard Oreo by putting tiny marshmallows within the chocolate cookie (visible as white spots from the outside) and replacing the white creme with a chocolate creme that also featured some bits of soy nuts.
I crunched in to find that the changes brought both chewiness and crunchiness to the round sandwiches — ironically making the crunchy cookies chewy when encountering the marshmallow, and the smooth creme crunchy when encountering the soy nuts. Neither of those additions were present in huge quantity, but there was enough of each to be quite noticeable. Overall, it was a lot of chocolate, but the extra stuff did give it the Rocky Road feel and taste. I'd recommend this one with cold mild, which worked great for me.
