Taste test: These Oreo-style cookie sandwiches each had two beige-colored cookies surrounding a sightly lighter beige-colored filling. With all three layers, they looked thicker and more substantial than Oreos. The outside of the cookies had some geometric patterns, plus nine holes in each one. There were 20 sandwiches in the box, contained in a clear plastic tray within a clear plastic bag, which combined their efforts to keep all of the sandwiches unbroken.
I crunched in to find a light crunch and a taste that screamed "Pumpkin pie!" to me. Oreo has a seasonal Pumpkin Spice flavor, which I liked a lot, and these were about equally good. These didn't have the bright orange filling that the Oreos did, but I'd gladly eat either kind any day of the year!

Smell test: Smells like pumpkin pie. Nice!
