Taste test: This popcorn promised to be flavored with crushed bits of some cookie that was not specifically named, but the marketing copy on the bag implied as as strongly as it could without actually using the name that it was Oreos (see "From the package").
I opened the bag to find that the kernels had a good helping of finely crushed Oreo on the surfaces, particularly in the crevices, and that mix of white popcorn with the Oreo dust did give them an Oreo-like look. I poured myself a bowl and crunched in to find a soft feel and middling crunch, with a taste that was indeed Oreo-like. I did notice multiple instances where I encountered some bit of popcorn hull that was quite hard, too hard for my teeth. This isn't something that I normally encounter with popcorn, as this was different than just a bit of hull getting stuck in my teeth. But otherwise the taste and texture were good.
The bag was filled less than halfway. Boo!

Smell test: Smelled just like Oreos on the first whiff, but I could notice a lot of popcorn after that.
