Peppermint Bark Oreo Review
And just like that, it is officially Christmas season.
The final new Oreo flavor announced at the Sweets and Snacks Expo in May is now on shelves! Peppermint Bark Oreo follows the release of Limited Edition Rocky Road Trip Oreo, Limited Edition Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake Oreo and the new permanent flavor Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie Oreo.
You can’t have Christmas without some peppermint snacks! Peppermint candy, peppermint ice cream and, of course, peppermint cookies. The Peppermint Bark Oreo doesn’t stray too far from some other limited edition flavors Nabisco has released during past holiday seasons. In previous years, they have released the Candy Cane Oreo and the Peppermint Oreo during Christmastime.
How are they?
This’s year’s flavor is a bit more … classy. It features peppermint flavored creme with crunchy sugar crystals and the classic chocolate cookie. The minute you open the pack, you get an intoxicating whiff of chocolate mint. Smells like Christmas! I was a bit hesitant about the little candy pieces within the creme (I am not a huge fan of hard, crunchy pieces) but they are so tiny that you barely notice they are there. The creme itself reminds me of an Andes mint, only with tiny candy pieces mixed in. The chocolate cookie compliments the creme filling well. The cookie as a whole is a perfect combination of chocolate and peppermint.
If you or your family are fans of peppermint, I would definitely recommend picking up a pack of this limited edition flavor. They will put everyone in the Christmas spirit! I found these at my local Walmart for $2.98 a pack. And with the holidays right around the corner, there are so many fun, easy recipes out there that incorporate Oreo’s. My personal favorite is dipping Oreo’s into chocolate and sprinkles. Peppermint Bark Oreo’s dipped in white chocolate and Christmas sprinkles?! Festive and yummy!
