I have been on a Oreo kick, without actually eating them. One of my lovely sister’s bought me the Limited Edition Reese’s Peanut Butter Oreos, which are currently sitting in our freezer at home until my return. I have been all over the interent reading about this Oreo or that one, and finally after more than 45 days, today, during my reintro period of the Whole 30 Diet, I came across these and decided to override the more commonsensical approach to gluten reintro (basic pasta, bread) and buy these sugary packaged things.
I bought these while in Taipei two years back and recall very clearly not liking them at all, such that I did not even finish the package. This particular flavour is not normally available in Korea for wide distribution, but they are occasionally spotted in import snack stores. Made in Indonesia, they are mass-produced for the Malay-Indonesian-Thai, and Taiwanese market, perhaps other countries in Southeast Asia.
I bought them with memories of Taiwan, and truth be told, they were bad. Bad. I’m repeating this so I don’t forget and buy them once again two years later. The oreo cookie minus the creme is certainly and oreo, but the creme is neither “icecream” nor “blueberrry”. The “icecream” moniker is clearly used to catch the buyers eyes. The is creme is exactly like the creme in any other Oreo as far as texture goes. But as for the blueberry, fellow blogger and reviewer has stated the blueberry is accompanied by this awkward minty taste (http://www.bradleyfarless.com/blueberry-ice-cream-flavored-oreos/). Almost like sparkles of mint you find in toothpaste or icebreakers gum. There is an accompaniment of this with a very very subtle fake candied blueberry taste, but this does nothing to make this cookie any better.
Unlike my experience in Taiwan, I did finish this package however, though the push of this finish was because of my gluten reintro day of the Whole 30 Diet and not because I warmed up to this Frankenstein-esque horror of an Oreo cookie.
