Okay, it’s October, can we plllllease talk about the Candy Corn Oreos? I know the Internet already went (and is still going) bonkers over this questionable product when it was released a few weeks ago, but I’m sorry, that was in mid-September and I WAS NOT READY. Now that we’re officially in Halloween territory, I’ve decided it’s Candy Corn Oreos’ time to shine.
Here are some facts about this magical monstrosity of the cookie world:
Candy Corn Oreos are only available at Target stores.
Their cream is both neon orange and neon yellow – like candy corn! Get it, guys?
The cookie part is not chocolate, but sort of a blondie variety. Maybe this is supposed to be representative of the white tip?
Now that we’ve gotten the basics out of the way, it’s time for the real question. How do these suckers taste?!
Well, it’s weird. It’s like, you don’t really enjoy it, but then you keep eating it, and before you know it, you’re reaching for another. These Oreos are so sickly sugary that my teeth literally hurt when I bit into my first one. Like I got instant cavities attacking my mouth. Also, I wouldn’t say these exactly taste like candy corn. They don’t…. not taste like candy corn… but the crumbly texture really salts Oreos game here. Actual candy corn is chewy and dissolves into a lovely, corn syrupy goo in your mouth, while these just break down like any other chewed Oreo would.
The bottom line? As with any novelty food, I vote that you should try them just for the fun of it.
I give Candy Corn Oreos four out of ten skulls.
(Skulls? I don’t know, why not, it fits the Halloween theme. Also because you might die if you eat too many of these. Just kidding, probably.)
