Once again, I was caught off-guard at the supermarket when I came across a new Limited Edition Oreo flavor that I wasn’t even aware was coming: Rocky Road Trip Oreos.
I immediately got a good feeling about this one. (Spoiler: Yup. They’re really good!)
Since my daughter is coming home for a visit this weekend, I went ahead and bought two packages, and it’s a good thing I did: the first one is almost completely empty already!
Confession time: I still have multiple packages of Limited Edition Oreos in the house from past taste tests, because I’m not actually big on sweets when it comes to snacking. I rarely eat more than 2 of them per taste test. If I do indulge in junk food, it’s usually of the salty variety, so for these cookies to disappear this quickly, you know they’re something special.
Right from the start, I could see that this cookie, in particular, has a lot going on: there are marshmallow flecks embedded into the chocolate Oreo sandwich cookies, and the chocolate rocky road flavored filling is infused with “Soy Nut Inclusions.”
I have no clue what that is, but I tell you what–they’re dang tasty.
As soon as you open the package, you get the aroma of marshmallow–oooh, that’s a nice start.
The flavor profile is, not surprisingly, very chocolate-forward, but there’s a great balance between the fudgy chocolate center and the chocolate cookie itself. The soy nuts give the filling a nice crunch, and every so often, you get a a little extra chewy bit from the marshmallows embedded in the cookie.
So much to pay attention to as you’re eating them, that you need to have at least 3 to fully experience all of the components. I’m not even that big of a chocolate cookie fan, and I’m calling this one a home run.
Final grade: A
Seriously, go out and get yourself a couple of packages of these. Here’s an Amazon link, but as usual, you’re going to pay a premium there, so if you can find them in your supermarket, that’s the way to go.
