Tasty Tuesday: Candy Corn Oreos- Weigh In!


As I promised, here is yet another seasonal specialty treat; this one just as recognizable as the first (White Chocolate Candy Corn M&M's); Nabisco's Candy Corn Oreos! There was so much feedback from the first post; many of you were torn by a love or intense dislike of Candy Corn. Some were also concerned about the intensity of the flavor, versus my perceived underwhelming presence of it. I still stand by my belief that the Candy Corn M&M's rely mainly on the White Chocolate flavoring, and are a more subtle specialty variety. If you haven't tried them yet, for yourself, be sure to keep your eyes peeled at local Target and National 99 Cents Only Stores!

I found this weeks featured seasonal foodie delight first online; where one blogger was bragging of Facebooking her find before her friends. In truth, these Oreos did require a bit of hunting. Also stocked at Target, 3/4 of the local branches don't seem to have them in stock. Oddly enough, they weren't found with the seasonal Halloween merchandise either- but stuffed on a shelf behind a column! The packaging resembles classic Golden Oreos, in a yellow peel back sleeve, but clearly displays vivid Candy Corn artwork on it's front.


Joining the ranks of Berry Burst, Green Tea, Lemon Ice, Birthday Cake, and Peanut Butter, these Limited Edition Oreos are new for 2012. Replacing the traditional Yellow and Orange seasonal cream filled sandwich cookies, with one that is heavily flavored to solicit a candy corn essence, these just might be my new favorite! Again, I am not a big Candy Corn fan- mainly because the candy itself can often crumble or be tough to chew when old/stale, but I've thoroughly enjoyed the accuracy of the flavoring here.

These Golden Oreo specialty cookies consist of two extra-sweet halves of orange and yellow cream wedged between soft Golden Oreo discs. The filling seems somewhere between double stuffed and classic, not too thin nor thick, and these certainly fall on the more pungent and sweeter scale of seasonal treats. Not only are Candy Corn Oreos tasty, but they're just plain fun to look at. Try scraping the Yellow Cream off first, then tasting the Orange and weigh in on the debate- Are they two flavors, or one? Either way, one thing's for certain, these seasonal beauties go great with an ice cold glass of Milk (Silk for the dairy free, of course)!

  12. So no really a big fan of candy corn, they're just too sweet for me. Same goes for oreos, although I'll eat them if I have milk, a lot of milk. But they look kinda pretty.

  18. This was a pretty thorough review, and it sounds like you went to a lot of trouble to get them. I have to go to Target tomorrow anyway, so I will have to see if my Target has them. Without trying them, I am about 50/50 whether I will like them a lot, but I am anxious to try them.

  21. Luckily they carry them a m local grocery store so I don't have to g thought the trouble of trying to find them. I've been hesitant to try these because I actually am not a big fan of candy corn but I think these would be great for my little ones. Um and where have I been because the only other Oreo flavor I've ever seen is the birthday I would've loved to try the green tea

  28. Anyone liking Candy Corn will be Happy. I have to tell the truth I do not like it. But I would imagine it would not be so granular on a cookie.

  45. I don't actually like candy corn but I would try these if I could find them. My favorite Oreos are the chocolate stuffed ones.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Why anybody would buy these is beyond me. candy corn is bad enough, but putting them in a cookie?! bleh!

    ReplyDelete
  47. They should have left perfection alone. Candy Corn Oreos doesn't sound good at all to me. Regular Oreos on the other hand....... :)

    ReplyDelete
