Gooooood morning san francisco! (does anybody know where that's from?)
Alrighty let's get started with this here review. When I first saw these I got extremely excited, it mightve been due to the fact that I was at target at almost 11pm (closing time) to grab some midnight snacks. My first impression of these prior to eating them was WOW I bet they'd be DELICIOUS. But I was let down. These cookies did not taste like cookie dough at all. Sure it had chocolate chips, but those were such a minor detail that I couldn't say OH this is definitely cookie dough flavored. However, the creme reminded me of coffee, a flavor I like! So I definitely did finish the box, since coffee oreos are something to be happy about. One odd thing about these was that the creme came off particularly easily. While with most oreos the white creme leaves residue on one side and sticks to the other, this creme can be lifted off both cookies with much ease.
I also decided we would be starting to write the good, the bad, and the ugly!
The Good: The creme reminded me of coffee. It had chocolate chips. The hard cookie layers tasted just like the originals.
The Bad: No cookie dough flavor.
The Ugly: Oreos are always so expensive.
Review: I received these cookies for Christmas from my sister and wow.. these were disappointing. Whenever I walked by these cookies at Target, I really wanted to try it, but now that I have, I definitely wouldn't buy these again. The cookies weren't strong in pumpkin flavor nor did it have any dominant spices. I thought the cookies were soft and fluffy, but they were crunchy and crumbly. I didn't like the texture and it was just unsettling in my mouth. As for the cream, it had a strange cream cheese flavor. It wasn't the sweet and sometimes tangy cream cheesiness either. It was too cheesy and made me feel a little gross on the inside. I definitely would NOT recommend these.
Review: Twix is one of my favorite chocolate bars, and gingerbread is one of my favorite flavors/cookies. So this was the best of both worlds. The gingerbread flavor was solely in the caramel, and the shortbread cookie and the milk chocolate were the same as the original twix bar. But wow wow wow. THESE WERE AMAZING. The crunchy, caramel-y, chocolatey goodness was just like a normal twix bar. I have no complaints about this. I highly recommend this.
Price: $2.88 per bag
Green Tea Crepe Cake
Review: WOW. This cake was 2 of my favorite things in one. Green tea and crepes. The crepe layers were thin and slightly sweet and the green tea layers in between the crepes had a genuine matcha flavor. Not overly sweet and overpowered with sugar. The green tea powder on the top had more of a slightly bitter tea taste, but because of my love for bitter teas, this was a touch I personally really liked.
Review: This cake was chosen but my sisters, but of course, I had a bite of it as well. The cake was nice and fluffy and the cream wasn't dense or overly sweet either. I really liked this because everything was just so light and fluffy and slightly sweet and delicious. It reminded me a lot of Paris Baguette cakes--something I like.
Price: $15 ish for both
