The brownie didn’t taste off, but it didn’t taste fresh either. It just tasted artificial, like it would stay the same after any amount of time. The chocolate flavour was as Oreo-y as I expected it to be, with a rich cocoa kick. Texturally it was a bit strange… like a chewier, softer version of their biscuits. Not entirely unpleasant but it missed the tell-tale hard crack and gooey interior of a true brownie.
The crème that filled the middle was in abundance, but I’m not convinced that I wanted a lot of it given that it was so sweet and sickly. I shouldn’t be surprised by this seeing that it’s the same sort of stuff that fills a Twinkie, but combined with the sweet chocolate brownie outer the sugar becomes too much to bear. My teeth started to jar, and by the end I felt like I needed to book an appointment with the dentist.
I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy any more of these Oreo brownies unless we were expecting war, in which case I’d stock up -I think they’d survive anything!
