It’s that time once again to bust out your fat pants and get your Oreo on!
On this edition of Oreos du jour, we’re attacking the new blueberry pie flavor. It’s a followup to the wildly popular Strawberry Shortcake Oreos the company debuted in the spring, and the addictively delicious Fruity Crisp Oreos that came out last month.READ MORE: Michigan Reports 7,505 New COVID-19 Cases, 118 Deaths
Sold exclusively at Target, this Oreo features a generous helping of blueberry pie flavored crème sandwiched between two graham cookies. These Oreos are only available for a short amount of time, though, so get them while you can!
Review: Blueberry Pie Oreos
Appearance: These cookies are clearly double stuffed, but the unnatural periwinkle color is off-putting. The package comes with 21 cookies but it isn’t resealable, so I can only assume that you’re supposed to eat them all at once.
Aroma: WOW these smell delicious! It’s not so much of a pie aroma, but more of vanilla and graham. And it doesn’t smell a thing like blueberry, either.READ MORE: Preserving Legacy, Sister’s Return To Revitalize Childhood Neighborhood, After Seeing Increase In Blight
Taste: Let’s start with the cookie wafer itself. The graham is so delicious, I could probably eat an entire package of just the wafers. It’s not necessarily a flavor that I associate with pie, though — maybe a cobbler. But it is yummy nonetheless. On to the crème, there’s no mistake here — it definitely tastes like blueberries. The flavor doesn’t seem completely artificial, but it doesn’t taste like you’re eating a handful of berries either.
Put the two together and voila! Does it taste like an actual blueberry pie? Ehhh, I’m going to say no. But does it taste like a delicious blueberry tart or cobbler? Yes, that’s definitely more on the mark.
Pros: These flavors really work well together, whether they actually taste like pie or not.
Cons: They are very sweet, the color of the creme is kind of disgusting (it’s just not natural!) and the aftertaste lingers for quite a while.
Rating: 6 out of 10 — Yes, these are better than the Strawberry Shortcake Oreos, but they can’t hold a candle to the Fruity Crisp Oreos.MORE NEWS: MDOT: Here's A List Of Weekend Construction In Metro Detroit
