On November 18, 2018, Walt Disney’s iconic character, Mickey Mouse, turns 90 years old! As the average life expectancy for a domestic mouse is only 1 to 2 years, this is truly a momentous occasion, and one that the folks at Nabisco decided to commemorate with yet another Limited Edition flavor.
These are fairly straightforward: party-themed chocolate sandwich cookies with white Birthday Cake creme filling that includes rainbow flecks, reminiscent of sprinkles. I found these today at my local Foodtown, for under $5 a package.
So, how are they?
Well, on the plus side, they’re exactly as described: the filling tastes just like the vanilla frosting you’d find on a store-bought birthday cake, and the chocolate sandwich cookie is the typical Oreo flavor and texture that you’ve come to know and love.
The flip side to that, of course, is that you can easily re-create the flavor profile for this cookie on your own, simply by buying a box of chocolate cookies and a tub of white or vanilla frosting (Funfetti or Rainbow Chip, if you’d like to duplicate the rainbow flecks) and dipping them yourself.
Overall, I’ll give these an A-. They get high marks for keeping it simple and living up to exactly what they promise in terms of flavor, but I’m dinging them with a minus because they’re a little TOO simple/one-note. Let’s face it, this wasn’t a very difficult thing to re-create, flavor-wise, and the price is a bit steep just to see Mickey’s face on a cookie.
If you’re a “dunker”, I would highly recommend dipping these in milk, because that would elevate these to an A+.
If you’re a big Disney fan, you should definitely seek these out and give them a try.
