Britannia Milk Bikis

Posted in Cookies

Good evening! Aside from frequenting the usual places to find new treats to try, I enjoy checking out the local ethnic markets. Lucky for me we have quite a few here in Sacramento. I live near an Indian market, and would drive by it almost daily. Finally one evening we decided to venture in and see what they had to offer. The one thing I find the hardest about shopping in authentic markets is that a lot of items are not really easily identified or packaged with English translations. Sometimes this can make for exciting new food discoveries, but sometimes it can be a recipe for disaster.

I usually try to stick to cookies and candy, as I find them the “safest” as far as extreme flavors are concerned. I picked up these cookies thinking they would be somewhat like a buttery waffle like cookie. They were only 49 cents, which I thought was a total score. I tucked these away and remembered I had them while looking for something sweet.

I opened the package to find 4 dense cookies staring back at me. I expected these to taste similar to an animal cracker, but I was wrong. I took one bite and was surprised to find that these cookies had almost no flavoring. These were the epitome of bland. I’m unsure if these are usually eaten with something else such as jam or peanut butter or something, but good grief they need it. They were not sweet at all, did not have a distinct flavor, and were kind of a black hole of flavor.

Texture: 3/5 – These cookies are very dense and dry. Maybe that’s why they are diving into milk on the outside.

Smell: 2/5- These have hardly any smell at all.

Appearance: 4/5- I like the waffle shape on the cookie, it appeals to the square lover in me. Other than that, these are pretty mundane.

Taste: 1.5/5 – These are really really bland. It was almost kind of weird that you could bite into this extremely dense cookie and taste hardly anything. These might be good if you had something to dip them in, but I don’t plan on buying them again.

Limited Edition Barnum Animal Crackers

Posted in Cookies

Happy New Year food friends! I hope everyone had a fun and safe New Year’s last night. Personally we stayed in and thankfully so because people lost their minds in Sacramento last night. Not only was there a car stolen from a local auto mall that caused a major highway to be shut down, we had a couple of other sad incidents including a shooting at a huge party thrown by the city. I hold on to my feelings that people are losing their damn minds. ANYWAYS, on a more positive note, I have a little recap on my personal blog of my last year if you are bored.

barnum1

Call it a feat of marketing, but everytime I see a packaging that says new or limited edition I always feel compelled to buy it. I’m a total sucker and apparently marketing companies target customer. I have not had animal crackers in AGES. I think I was probably 10 or so maybe younger. There are a few foods that I remember tasting better than they do. One example would be Rice Crispies. I loved them as a kid and now as an adult I can’t even see how I remotely liked them. Somehow, animal crackers have managed to make their way into this list.

I remember animal crackers tasting slightly buttery with a hint of vanilla. I would never get tired of eating these no frills cookies, but something along the way changed and I was rather disappointed when I tried these again. Not only did they have a lackluster flavor, they tasted slightly stale – and there was nothing limited edition about them! What a let down.

barnum2

Texture: 4/5 – These cookies have the slightly crunchy texture, but they were kind of chewy not in a good way.

Smell: 2/5 – They smell slightly vanilla-y.

Appearance: 1/5 – Now this may seem a little harsh, but they didn’t even change any of the animals to “winter” type animals – whatever those are. The only thing that is “limited edition” about these is the dang box.

Taste: 3/5 – These cookies were mediocre, which kid of killed a little of my childhood (not really). The only way I could see myself eating these again in my adult life would be if I were dunking them in hot chocolate or smothered in Nutella.

Grandma’s Special Recipie Cookies – Ginger & White Chocolate Chip

Posted in Cookies

Hi! How is everyone doing this evening of 12-12-12? I spent the evening at a geocaching event and had an amazing time. Upon returning home, Richard and I decided to hit 7-11 for some Slurpees. At least, that was the intention.

cookie1

Once we arrived at 7-11, a Slurpee didn’t sound all that great because it was pouring buckets of rain outside and I was already frigid from wearing shorts and no sweatshirt out. I ended up picking up these cookies, some jelly beans and some really gross gummy worms. Funny 7-11 related food story though, a while back they had a delicious lime-ade flavor that I liked to mix with the cherry. For some reason, the lime flavor is WAY more airy than the other flavors. I grabbed my cup, filled it 3/4 with cherry Slurpree and moved over to the other machine that had the lime-ade flavor. I pulled the handle and it started making some weird noises. I stopped and checked to see if the light was on saying that it was out of order at the moment, but it wasn’t, so I put my cup back under the spout and pulled the handle again. A small amount of the lime-ade flavor finally made its way into my cup before a GIANT air bubble in the line blew the lid off my cup and caused the contents to explode everywhere. The noise was so loud that it startled me and I dropped the cup on the overflow tray, causing the little remaining Slurpee to spill. I had Slurpee all over me and all over the counter and machine, but I couldn’t stop laughing. Hands down, best Slurpee experience ever.

Anyways, on to the cookies. I always forget how indifferent I am when it comes to Grandma’s cookies. They are usually sort of bland and extremely dry, but apparently I go enough time between eating them that I forget this and always find myself slightly disappointed everytime I buy them. Not to mention that I can only ever find them at gas stations and vending machines, which makes me think that they aren’t exactly the best quality. Also color me surprised to find that they are made by Frito-Lay. Hey Frito, stick to chips, thanks!

Upon first glance, the cookie looks spotted with nuts, not white chocolate chips like I had expected. I even checked the package again to make sure that it didn’t say nuts and maybe my thumb was covering it. Nope, white chocolate chips. You can visibly see the cinnamon and nutmeg in this cookie in the dough. Let’s cut to the chance here, MAN O MAN are these dry. When first biting into the cookie you are fooled into thinking that you will be enjoying a nice chewy cookie, but they are so dry. The cookie itself has a decent flavor, heavy on the gingery/spicy side. Like I might have to take a couple of Tums after eating these cookies. The white chocolate chips are lost it the mix and honestly do nothing more than bring a little crunch to the table.

cookie2Texture: 2/5 – If you skipped the whole portion above to get to the number ratings, let’s just recap. THESE ARE REALLY DRY. These would have been better if they were a solid gingerbread cookie instead of trying to make them chewy.

Smell: 4/5 – These smell really good, although when you smell the bag, there is a hint of wax? It smells like a gingerbread candle in there.

Appearance: 3/5 – The white chocolate chips look like nuts in this cookie and for some reason they shaved off the pieces that stuck out to make the cookie flat. How peculiar.

Taste: 3/5 – Overall, these cookies are OK. If you like a spicy gingerbread, these are for you, BIG TIME. Definitely not my go to cookie when it comes to gingerbread and I think Grandma needs to make a few adjustments to her recipe. These cookies contain something called Propylene Glycol Monoesters of fats, which I’m pretty sure it means it contains monster fat. Don’t eat during a full moon.

Got Milk? Magic Milk Flavoring Straws – Cookies & Cream and Wild Berry

Posted in Confectionaries

Hey guys! Have you ever had one of those days where you are sipping on a glass of milk (or almond, soy, rice, whatever milk) and thought to yourself, “Man, this moo juice would taste SO much better if I could drink it through a complicated straw that housed tiny little flavor crystals that would flavor each sip!” Me either. Somewhere along the way Got Milk? thought of this interesting idea. These flavor straws are nothing new. They have been around for at least a year or two, but every time I pass them hanging on the sidecap, I try to convince myself to buy them and give them a try. Finally I broke down and picked these up at SaveMart the other night.

20121210-173150.jpg

So, again I ask myself, what the hell is a wild berry? And why can’t I buy it at a store? According to Got Milk? wild berry is a mixture of blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, strawberry, and BLACK CARROT JUICE CONCENTRATE. WHAT IN THE… What in the world is black carrot juice. Why is it in my milk? Now I must admit. I don’t drink milk. Not only do I not enjoy it, but I am lactose intolerant. I also hate that soy milk only comes in the most giant container ever made and rarely buy it because I can’t finish the entire thing before its time to throw it away. So to try these, I opted for some vanilla dairy free yogurt. I know what you’re thinking, you sucked yogurt through these straws? No, I didn’t. I broke the first rule of Got Milk? Magic Milk Flavoring Straws, I cut them open. Other rules include using only one straw for one glass of milk and making sure children under 3 are supervised while using a straw.

I find the design of the straw itself rather ingenious. The cookies and cream flavor has the top and bottom of the straw dimpled together to allow the milk to come through it. The wild berry is a bit more sophisticated with a plastic filter on each end.

The cookies and creme flavor is pretty much just chocolate because your milk or the yogurt in my case makes up for the creme flavor. The flavor crystals also do not dissolve very quickly so I fail to see why they put a limit of 1 glass of milk per straw, honestly I think you’ll need 2 glasses at least to use up a single straw. The wild berry tastes mostly like raspberry, no carrots here. I actually preferred to just cut the ends off these and pour them directly into my mouth, kind of like Nerds.

20121210-195200.jpg

Texture: 3/5 – In their raw form, the flavor crystals are really crunchy. They don’t dissolve quickly (at least in yogurt) and I imagine they would not change the texture of your milk drink until you get to the point where they are so small that they would pass through the tiny holes in the filter.
Smell: 4/5 – The cookies & cream flavor smells like a milky chocolate treat. The wild berry smells like berries mixed with a slight hint of vanilla.
Appearance: 5/5 – I am impressed with the design of the straw (and easily amused). I also like the color variants in each of the straws. Makes me think of sprinkles, for your milk!
Taste: 3/5 – The cookies & cream flavor is pretty much just chocolate. I need to sample the regular chocolate flavor straws to see if in fact they taste the same.  The wild berry flavor is pretty good. Raspberry is the most apparent flavor out of all of the berries used in these. I would probably buy these again, just to eat straight from the straw for a nice 17 calorie treat.

Little Pepi’s Pizzelle Waffle Cookies – Vanilla & Original Anise Flavor

How’s it going guys? Tonight I am burning the midnight oil and killing some time while waiting for the release of Batman: The Dark Knight Rises. Well, my partner in crime is waiting for the release, I am tagging along for the fun of it. In an effort to kill sometime (which I have a lot of before the clock strikes midnight) we wandered the aisles of The Nugget (which is a fancy pants supermarket here) and looked for things that could be potentially tasty. I enjoy this store because they carry a lot of kind of hard to find items and their bakery and deli are AH-MAZAIN. Of course there are a lot of things that I turn my nose up because I have the culinary taste of a 6 year old child, I can always manage to find something to pick up anywhere I go.

I had never seen these cookies before, and truth be told, Little Pepi’s sounds like a hole in the wall pizza company more than it sounds like a cookie company. I was apprehensive about how these would be without any company from ice cream or frosting or some sort of companion. My favorite morning food is a waffle, and I like cookies, so these couldn’t be too bad, right?

20121205-124437.jpg

Admittedly I did not pick these up, Richard did – but I like to assume that I have mutual rights to his property, legal or not 🙂 (Hi Richard, please let me continue to share your food after this post! :P) I had no interest in trying the Anise flavor as I do not care for black licorice, but in the spirit of being brave, I thought I would give it a try. We pulled into our destination for the DVD and had a little mini-feast of cookies in the car, which is why the pictures are not that great. We started with the vanilla flavor – most likely because it would be the more “safe” flavor. The vanilla flavor was pretty good. The cookie itself had kind of a chewy texture to it, despite being crispy for the most part. It tasted like a sweeter version of a waffle cone that you would get at a place like Coldstone. Alone they are pretty tasty, but I imagine that smothered in something like Nutella, or even some whipped cream, would take this over the top.

Then there is the Anise flavor. I made Richard try it first because again, I don’t like black licorice. He gave it a try and assured me that the flavoring was not too strong, so I trusted his judgement and had a small piece. NOPE. NOT GOOD. NO THANK YOU. He is right, the flavor is not super strong, but IT’S STILL THERE. *nothankyouhands*

20121205-124445.jpg

Texture: 3/5 – This crispy cookie was somehow chewy, but chewy in a kind of stale way. Normally I would chalk this up to maybe getting a package that had some air in it or wasn’t sealed all the way, but both packages had the same texture. These also don’t expire until the first portion of next year, so I know that’s not the case either.

Smell: 4/5 – These have that rich buttery sweet waffle smell. Mmmm mmm…

Appearance: 4/5 – These are rather big cookies. I would venture to say that they are about almost 4 inches round. They all have a nice golden color and the classic waffle design.

Taste: 3.5/5 – I will only rate the vanilla flavor because the anise flavor was beyond not my cup of tea at all (which I would give a 1/5). Over all these cookies are good, but I would not see myself sitting down to enjoy these without the addition of something else like peanut butter or fruit or something of that nature. They are tasty and would be a great fancy edition to a bowl of ice cream as a yummy garnish.

Limited Edition Oreos – Gingerbread

Posted in Cookies

Hello you beautiful cupcakes! I know I promised a proper review yesterday but truth be told, I have come down with some sort of creeping crud Halloween sickness. It started Monday and I like to think that the worst was yesterday. I was in bed by 8 and out cold by 8:15, not to mention my nose was so stuffed up I wouldn’t have been able to taste anything to review for you guys anyways.

So! How was your Halloween? Get any good candy?

I think gingerbread as a flavor is going to be the breakout star this year. I’m hoping for gingerbread English Muffins, gingerbread bagels, gingerbread cookies everything. Gingerbread ALL the things! Look out pumpkin – we are coming for you. Despite the fact that ginger gives me instantaneous heartburn, I subject myself to this delicious treat anytime I can.

20121101-211350.jpg

I saw a review of these pop up on FatGuy Food Blog and started getting antsy to try them. With the unicorn that is Pringles lately with their fancy new holiday flavors that are no where to be found, I was getting nervous that these would be snatched up before I could buy them. Luckily I received some local intel that they were in stock at my local Walmart and there was a large display of them. No way that I would miss out!

Upon arrival I was torn between looking at the 50% Halloween merchandise for everyday household items (I am weird like that) or looking for these cookies. I chose the latter. Low and behold, there was infact a glimmering Nabisco castle in the middle of the main walk way of the consumables section, stocked fully with gingerbread goodness. No joke on the castle y’all – its real, I promise.

I honestly wanted to rip these open in the car, but I was rather full partially from the food that I shall be reviewing tomorrow. I needed some time for everything to settle and enjoy the in the comfort of my own abode, you know, incase I needed a moment or something.

Oreo kind of let me down with the whole Lemon flavor limited edition episode, so I knew that it was their time to shine. After settling in at my makeshift desk of a tv tray and a 56 quart storage bin that I have managed to fall into more times than I would like to admit, I opened these delicious treats up.

The smell was rather inviting. You could definitely tell that these were going to be good. I think someone forgot how to count when stocking my package though, and they were jammed in there so tight that they sprung out like a can of snakes (no food was harmed in the making of this review). My first curiosity was if the creme was going to be squishy like the lemon flavor or more firm like the classic creme. It was indeed more firm, which I enjoyed. It is the perfect balance of gingerbread and buttery golden Oreo cookie when eaten in its entirety, but sampling the creme by itself, its a smidge weak. I might just eat these for lunch tomorrow. I wish that there was a little more spice to it, but all in all these are VERY good.

I really enjoy the gingerbread cookies from Trader Joes, but I think they might ride the bench this year in favor of these Oreos.

20121101-211356.jpg

Texture: 4/5 – The creme constancy returns to the familiar territory of classic Oreos. If you’re the type that enjoys twisting open the cookie and eating the creme first, these will work much better for you than the lemon flavor.

Smell: 5/5 – When opening these, I wanted to dive right into the package. The smell was so good!Yankee, make this smell into a candle and I will buy all of them.

Appearance: 4/5 – These could easily be mistaken for peanut butter to the unsuspecting person. A holiday stamp in the cookie would be helpful to differentiate them from regular ole Oreos, but all in all they fit the Oreo bill.

Taste: 5/5 – These cookies are dangerously good if you are a gingerbread fan. I was skeptical at first because of my love of gingerbread, but these are a definite home run. Guaranteed better presents to anyone who leaves these out for Santa.

Limited Edition Oreos – Lemon Twist

Posted in Cookies

Good evening friends! Also, a special hello to those who found me via So Good, color me flattered for mentioning me in their blog! When I heard that Oreo had planned on releasing a lemon Oreo, I knew I had to get on that. Sadly I couldn’t find them anywhere! I finally came to the acceptance that they would slip though my fingers and I would never be able to taste this possibly delicious flavor. But despite my admission of defeat, it never stopped me from looking at every grocery store I stepped foot into – that makes me sound like I go to the grocery store a lot, but I don’t. Last night while procuring some fruit snacks at SaveMart, I spotted these on a sidecap. I would be lying if I said that I didn’t jump about 3 feet into the air with excitement. Yes I have a problem.

20121030-194544.jpg

I am not overly sure what I envisioned these to taste like aside from the fact that I knew Oreo wouldn’t let me down. So far with all of the different flavors that I have tried,  I don’t care for the peanut butter filling or the Berry Blast flavor. I am also not the biggest fan of golden Oreos, but the thought of a chocolate cookie plus lemon creme doesn’t sound appealing in the slightest, despite my affinity for mixing weird foods.

Can I just say that I find Oreos packing a mixture of genius and frustration? I really wish Keebler would get on this packaging tip. I like that all of the Oreos are laid out before you, ready for consumption, but I dislike that some get tucked in the corners and make it a little tough to procure. #snackfoodproblems I guess.

When I peeled back the flap on top of the package of Oreos, I was greeted with the smell of a buttery cookie mixed with the light scent of lemon. It was not overpowering at all. I found the creme in these to be a little more on the squishy side vs. a regular Oreo, but thats OK because I like to pop my Oreos open and eat the creme first. I don’t know if its the consistency of the creme or if I have perfected some sort of patent worthy maneuver of removing cookie creme, but you can’t really lick th creme off, as it pretty much sides off in one piece.

I really wanted to like these, and I do, but I don’t feel that Oreo brought anything new to the table with these. They pretty much tasted like any other lemon creme cookie that you can find on your local supermarket shelf, and the only thing that sets them apart is the Oreo brand name. Womp womp.

20121030-194551.jpg

Texture: 4/5 –The creme inside of these cookies has the familiar texture of Oreo creme (powdered sugar mixed with lard, sorry to burst anyones bubble on that one) Coupled with the cookie, it makes for a nice mixture of crunch and creamy. Yum!

Smell: 5/5 – These things smell very good. I am a huge fan of lemon flavored foods (lemon candies, Vitamin water, cookies, etc) and the smell of these match the flavor.

Appearance: 4/5 – I think it would be cool if Oreo came up with some sort of limited edition stamp to use on their cookies, kind of like what they did for the birthday cake flavor. That way you can wave these around in your friends face who may or may not care that you are eating limited edition Oreos. They do look pretty much like regular golden Oreos though.

Taste: 3/5 – I give these a middle of the road rating, not because they are not good, but because they are nothing new. If you can find them, try them, if you can’t, just buy some lemon sandwich cookies, write OREO on the outside and chow down. Your brain will never know the difference.

Pepperidge Farms Milano Slices – Salted Pretzel

Posted in Cookies

First off I would like to say hello! to all the people that have visited my humble little junk food blog from The Impulsive Buy! What an honor to be linked from their blog 🙂 hopefully I don’t disappoint.

20121027-111518.jpg

Pepperidge Farms Milano Slices – Salted Pretzel. Let’s just let that sink in for a minute. Go ahead, dream about unicorns flying around in cotton candy clouds above the Pepperidge Farms factory as the clouds rain down deliciousness. Okay, back yet? So I must confess, I love sweet and salty snack foods. I may or may not have dipped potato chips into frosting, cinnamon twists from Taco Bell into their nacho cheese (that sounds really sick, but from the egging on of my old roommate I tried it and it was DELICIOUS), so on and so forth. I would also have to say that pretzels are probably one of my favorite snacks. Pretzels + cookies?! Yes please!

I spotted these on another food blog (sadly I can’t remember which) and knew I had to try them. I looked at all the usual places, Walmart, Target, Safeway, etc., but to my surprise I was only able to spot them at Walgreens. Not my first stop for cookies, but I’ll take it.

Now I don’t understand why Pepperidge Farms even bothers putting portion sizes on their nutritional facts. Anyone with a decent set of tastebuds knows that a bag of Pepperidge Farms cookies is one serving. I’m convinced they sprinkle crack into these things.

20121027-112627.jpg

Behold. No, you are not looking at a sample of Miracle Grow. The picture on the bag clearly does not show how much salt are on these things. I thought the salt would be on the pretzel, not sprinkled all over the cookie. I tried these two different ways. First I put a cookie in my mouth chocolate side up. It was the familiar taste of a delicious light cookie and dark chocolate, mixed with a nice crunch from the pretzel and a undertone of salt. The salt was a bit overpowering but not to the point where I wouldn’t finish the bag. The second way I tried them, I put the cookie in my mouth chocolate side down. Holy salt lick Batman. Way too salty. It was like someone salted the fries at your favorite fast food place, couldn’t remember if they salted them, and then salted them again salty.

So, Protip: chocolate side up friends!

Texture: 4/5 – I enjoyed the crunch that the pretzel provided to this classic cookie, or maybe it was the salt that made it crunchy.

Smell: 3/5 – Upon opening the bag you could smell the delicious dark chocolate and buttery cookies.

Appearance: 3/5 – I can’t say that these are the most aesthetically pleasing cookie to look at, but you can definitely see what you’re getting into. The picture on the bag and the actual product vary.

Taste: 3.5/5 – These are pretty tasty, if you eat them chocolate side up or if you REALLY love salt. I would buy these again, but don’t give them to your friends that have high blood pressure.

Ice Cream Oreos: Rainbow Shure,Bert!

Posted in Cookies

A little blast from the past from my blog at pyropixie.net until I can get everything straightened out over here!

20120529-181556.jpg

This week we sample: Ice Cream Oreos: Rainbow Shure,Bert!

It’s no secret that Richard and I are total snack food junkies. Rarely do we walk down an aisle at a store and find something we haven’t tried, but that doesn’t stop us from looking. Last night during a spur of the moment dash to the Wal of Marts for today’s lunch, we spotted these little babies on an endcap. Snack foodie protip # 375 – always check the endcaps. Both of us have worked in grocery retail for a while (I currently do not anymore). Vendors will often either pay to be on prime endcaps or beg department leads for space for new product. Simply hiding it down the aisle doesn’t move units, thus rarely you see new product thrown directly in the home location from the beginning.

Richard and I love all things Oreo, and between the two of us, have tried every flavor that has been produced. You would have thought someone said there was one million dollars stashed inside of one of the packages if you had witnessed how big our eyes got and how quickly we both snatched up a bag last night. Richard was so excited that he even grabbed the wrong ones – sucker! Creamsicle Oreos for you! After grabbing a few other goodies in the store and perusing the toy department for anything interesting (which is almost just as bad as the junk food addiction, if you’ve read any of my previous Toy Thursday blogs) we headed out to the car. These babies didn’t even make it out of the parking lot before being torn open. Being the gentleman that he is, Richard offered me the first one out of the bag, and our conversation followed as such:

Richard: mmmmm…. this smells really good, I could smell this forever.

me: mmmmm… it smells really citrus-y.

Richard: mmmmm….

me: *pops whole Oreo into mouth* The flavor is really underwhelming. (please note I said this with a mouth full of Oreo, always the lady).

Richard: Yeah I was expecting more of a sher-berty… taste.

me: the flavor is really light, like I could eat a whole bag and not even realize it vs. other ones that is so sugary the guilt sets in after #4 or so. At least they taste better than the Berry Blast Oreos. (note: I argued that the filling of the Berry Blast Oreo tasted fake, hi, has anyone ever looked on the back of the package? the whole damn thing is fake.)

Richard contests that golden Oreos are more of his preference because according to him “The golden cookies, are like a blank canvas, you can have a sugar cookie, or an orange cookie, or Neapolitan cookie. Chocolate cookies already have a flavor to them and there is only so much you can do with the chocolate ones.” Then he proceeded to call himself a white pride activist. That last part is true in the sense that he said it, but untrue in the sense that he does not think that. He also prefers his chocolate items to be “moist”, such as cake, a candy bar, etc. Chocolate cookies are too dry dammit.*

*I may or may not have paraphrased some of that last paragraph. When he speaks, so much awesome comes out that I can hardly keep up on the keyboard, and this is why I keep threatening to record some of our conversations.

I prefer chocolate cookies myself. Give me the ole classic Oreo. Call me a creature of habit, but I will always go back to the old stand by. My package of Shure, Bert! Oreos will probably last me a week or two, but Richard’s on the other hand is probably already gone. If they were the classic version, I would have probably had the entire thing for breakfast, but instead I settled for honey mustard pretzels. Breakfast of Champions I say!

Conclusion: We would probably buy these again. And again…

Appearance:
Richard: 4/5 – looks well done, not messy and all over the place, appealing. would add another color to the frosting as the pink and green frosting is misleading, making you think that you are going to have a watermelon like treat.
Erin: 3/5 – i like the colors, but agree that the two colors does not give me the feeling of eating sherbet, where is the orange?!

Consistency:
Richard: 4/5 – very consistent with great taste. I don’t know. sure.
Erin: 3/5 – I prefer the cream in Oreos to be a little more firm so that when I twist them apart – my preferred method of eating Oreos, the cream stays on one side. When I twist these apart the cream will lift and trick me into thinking that its going to split in two, which totally bums me out.

Smell:
Richard: 3/5 – I wish there was more of a citrus burst. I don’t even know what I’m saying right now.
Erin: 5/5 – Yeah I said, these babies smell good!

Taste:
Richard: 4/5 – It tastes like sherbet, but I feel like the cookie dulls or takes away from the sherbet-y taste.
Erin: 4/5 – I agree with Richard that the flavor is a bit weak when combined with the Oreo. All alone its pretty delish.
