Lemon Oreos, reviewed

Lemon Oreos

As a fan of all things cookies n’ cream, I’m always interested in trying the limited edition flavors that Oreo comes out with. The limited time flavors usually come out around the holidays and past flavors have included Candy Corn, Peppermint and Birthday Cake. Not every limited edition flavor appeals to me, but the new Lemon Oreos definitely caught my eye the last time I was at the store. These cookies are made with two golden vanilla Oreos sandwiching a canary yellow cream filling. The packaging doesn’t say that these are a limited edition, and Oreo offered a Limited Edition “Lemon Twist” flavor a few years back, so its possible that they might stick around for the whole season instead of just a few weeks. I love lemon cakes, cookies and other desserts, so I knew that I would have to try these.

I’ll cut to the chase: these were very tasty and really exceeded my expectations. The cookies themselves have a nice vanilla flavor and the lemon cream is bright and zesty, with a lot more “pop” than some other lemon cookies offer. The filling is sweet, but because the cookies are a little on the plain side, they balance out the cream surprisingly well. They’re great with coffee and tea, and like other Oreo cookies, they can be baked into any cookies n’ cream dessert to give it a citrus and springtime makeover by replacing the chocolate element of traditional cookies n’ cream with lemon.

    I bought some of these two weeks ago, they were addictive and yummy. Unfortunately, the next week the grocery store was completely out of them. This week, still out. ARGH. So if you like em, stock up I guess!

    They are here to stay. If your store does not have them just tell an employee and they can get the nabisco sales rep to get them in.

    I called Nabisco to ask about a lemon cream flavor a few years ago, they said they didn’t have one but the suggestion would be added to others. I guess enough of us asked, so they made them! I’m so excited about these cookies! I was addicted to the Girl Scout version that went out of production decades ago. These are so much better, after all they’re Oreos!!!! 10 of 10 Stars**********!!!!!

    Just made a Lemon oreo Cookies and Cream White Chocolate Cheesecake with a White Chocolate lemon Oreo cream Ganache on Friday, made the finishing touches on Saturday and just ate a piece with family tonight and HOLY SCHNIKES BATMAN, IT WAS AWESOME!!!! This was an idea I had had when I made up a recipe for a cookies and cream (using regular Oreos) last year, which also turned out quite well. Lemon Oreos are my favorite, next to the Chocolate flavored ones. I had assumed these would be a summertime flavor only, but I have been seeing them all year long since 2014, so they must be a mainstay. 🙂
