Red Velvet Oreos, reviewed
One look at a slice of red velvet cake, with its bold red color and creamy white icing, is enough to get your mouth watering. The cake is a buttermilk cake that has a hint of cocoa to it, darkening its signature color, which comes primarily from food coloring these days. I enjoy red velvet cake, red velvet cupcakes and even red velvet brownies. Recently, I also enjoyed some Red Velvet Oreos, a limited time offering from the iconic sandwich cookie brand inspired by the classic cake.

The Red Velvet Oreos have a deep red hue to the cookies, which are usually black, and are stuffed with a cream cheese flavored filling. I was a bit skeptical that they could capture the flavor of the cake in such a small package, but I have to admit that I was very pleasantly surprised when it took my first bite. The cookies had a nice hint of cocoa that seemed a touch less chocolaty than a traditional chocolate wafer cookie, and they pared very well with the tangy and sweet creamy cheese filling. The cream cheese flavor was unmistakable and really cemented these as a red velvet cookie.

These cookies are sure to be a hit with anyone who is a fan of Red Velvet cake because they come surprisingly close to the flavor of the actual cake, right down to a lingering aftertaste of cocoa and cream cheese. Oreo fans are going to enjoy these because they offer a fun change of pace from tradition Oreos, but can still be dunked into milk or coffee like the classics. I certainly enjoyed them! That said, I would still take a big slice of homemade red velvet cake over a box of these, though I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to reach for one if a freshly baked layer cake wasn’t available!

  1. … but isn’t Oreo using palm oil in its products?
