New Oreos are always an exciting thing. Well, apart from the last time, when the peanut butter variety turned out to be a bit disappointing. But hey, everyone deserves a second chance, and these strawberry cheesecake ones sounded pretty great. Even regular cheesecake would have been enough, but the addition of strawberry is something else.
These are pretty good actually, not perfect, but they're a hell of a lot better than the peanut butter. The filling has a definite strawberry flavour, though it is a little artificial. The cheesecake element is pretty good, a creamy, sweet edge that gives it quite a unique flavour. It all works pretty nicely with the cookie, I wouldn't normally say a strawberry chocolate cheesecake would be that great a combination, but it's pretty good in biscuit form. This is a nice, interesting addition to the Oreo range, definitely better than the peanut butter, I hope these stick around for longer than a limited edition.
My rating: 4/5
