I love Oreos, I do. In biscuit form, shoved in Dairy Milk, even that massive Oreo cake I made many years ago. So I was excited to see this Oreo brownie at an unreasonably priced £3.50 at an American sweet stall, and even more excited to find it for half that price at a sweet shop down the road.
This isn't just a brownie with Oreo bits shoved inside, the packet explicitly states that it's creme filled, and that's all it needed to say for me to buy it. There's some funky icing spread about willy nilly on top for decoration, but that didn't distract me from the fact that most of the brownies in the box were looking a little squished. That's why I didn't take the price off, for fear of compromising the structure of the brownie. Eventually, off the wrapper came, and in I dove.
Well, that's not a lot of creme, is it? It may look like enough, but it really isn't. The best part of the Oreo cookie is the creme, and there's quite a nice amount sandwiched between the biscuit parts. Here the creme is completely surrounded by this rather bland Oreo brownie. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad brownie, it's just not very exciting. It's just kind of a soft, slightly chewy Oreo biscuit, and there's just not enough creme filling to soften up the experience and make it easier to swallow. Perhaps with some more creme, or even a bit of innovation in the brownie itself (chocolate chips maybe?) this would be something wonderful. But all I can say is that it's okay.
My rating: 3/5
