Today's Review: Birthday Party Oreos

I tend to get unnaturally excited when I see a new variety of Oreos, especially if they're a UK release of a flavour I've always wanted to try but could never paying the inflated import prices. I was especially excited when I saw these in Asda, as I figured they were a much more reasonable 50p version of the Birthday Cake Oreos that have tempted me for so long. Why they changed the name, I wasn't sure, until I looked at the description and realised that they're not the same. I mean, I know what birthday cakes taste like, but apparently birthday parties taste like Oreo cookies with a caramel flavoured creme.

There are also some sprinkled in here apparently, lending to the birthday theme, but I couldn't find any as I was making my way through. After thoroughly studying the description I realised why. These Oreos consist of 29% caramel creme, and 0.14% sprinkles. Yes, 0.14%. Construing that 0.14% into the 29% of creme results in approximately... bugger all sprinkles in any of these Oreos. Why did they even bother? They should have just marketed these as caramel Oreos, and even then these aren't particularly great. They're sweet, yes, but a little too sweet, and the caramel isn't exactly authentic, it's got a bit of a funny taste. Still, it's a different kind of Oreo, so worth experiencing for 50p a pack. I'm just so disappointed in the lack of birthday cake.

My rating: 2/5


  1. Having recently consumed a big pack of the US birthday cake ones (my friend bought them back) and making myself feel quite sick, these sound pretty poor in comparison. Perhaps they think the Uk market is not familiar with 'birthday cake' as a flavour?

    either way, boring flavour again. I'd like liquorice ones.. but i am prob in the minority there!

  2. Woah! This is different. I am sure the kids are going to love it. It was good coming across this post. I can add this to the list as well. My nephew’s birthday is around the corner and I have booked one of the Chicago venues for the party. There is pool for the games and enjoyment as well.

  3. They're pretty bad. At first, it tastes like a normal Oreo, but then, a kick of badly-tasting sprinkles and an EXTREMELY artificial cake flavour just makes the Oreo disgusting.
