Brownie Batter Oreos Finally Hit Shelves (and Are Just as Delicious as You Imagined)
We have official confirmation: Brownie Batter Oreos are real — and they’re spectacular.
Mark Monday, Aug. 10, down as the day the latest (and greatest?) special-edition Oreos hit supermarket shelves nationwide. We’ve been dreaming about the cookies ever since they were spotted at the Sweet and Snacks expo in May, and now they’re available to all Oreo-loving Americans for $4.49 a pack.
This morning, we received a shipment of the new cookies — to stuff in our faces immediately, of course. After a very serious People.com tasting session, the verdict is in: they’re delicious! Despite tasting more like rich chocolate cake than actual brownie batter, the limited-edition Oreos are super chocolate-y, indulgent and basically the only thing capable of making a Monday bearable.
“These would taste amazing in a Blizzard.”
Basically, we’re obsessed. (And Greg, if you’re reading this, call us.)
If you were hoping for a more batter-y vibe, no need to crack raw eggs over the cookies; simply follow this pro tip: Keep one in your mouth without biting for 30 seconds or so, and the cookie will take on the viscosity and flavor of batter. If that grosses you out, just dunk the thing in a glass of milk like a normal person. You won’t regret it.
