Taste test: Having long since knocked off Oreos with their own Joe-Joe's brand, now Trader Joe's has made their own version of Oreo Thins, the slimmed-down version of Oreos that we first reviewed in 2015. The general idea was the same as Oreo Thins, with thin chocolate cookies enclosing a creme filling, but these didn't look as good, as the fillings were off-center and the sandwiches looked messy.
I crunched in to find a different crunch from Oreos, without that nice crumbly feel. The initial flavor not as good as Oreos, just not as chocolatey. Once the creme filling took over in dominating the flavor, I though it was better, as the creme was very tasty. But all in all, real Oreos win this battle.

Smell test: Similar to Oreos, but not the same. Not as good, just less chocolatey and less creamy.
From the package: “slimmer & crispier cousin of Joe-Joe” ... “chocolate & vanilla flavored with other natural flavors creme cookie” ... “yep, it's a slim & crispy cookie.”
