Lately it seems that Nabisco has really stepped up their game when it comes to their product line. This includes coming up with some different gimmicks like filling Chips Ahoy with Birthday Cake creme and unique flavoring such as the S’Mores Oreos from a few months ago. Rumored to be coming out of the test kitchen for the fall season was none other than Brownie-Batter flavored Oreos. Well, wonder no longer Internet… because they are indeed real, are in the stores right now, and are really amazing IF you are a TRUE brownie-batter connoussieur.
Honestly, I have to agree with both assessments. They really don’t smell appetizing (… then again, does brownie batter ever smell appealing? I mean… it’s raw stuff in there and if you’re trying to avoid salmonella by not using an egg then it’s just powder, water, and oil. The way batter smells is the way it smells, and Oreo IMHO comes pretty darn close to nailing the smell too) but once you get past that, the deep rich chocolate fudgy flavor takes over and delivers an over the top tasting experience. I really enjoy these cookies and will be one of those hoarders who snatch as many packs up as I can because of the limited run.
Then again… if it proves popular enough… maybe Nabisco will make it a regular offering.
So far I’ve found them in Target and Pathmark. If you know of anywhere else please feel free to let me know in the comments…
