OREO Cookie Club January 2018 Review

Chocolate Hazelnut OREOs package

Chocolate Hazelnut OREO Cookies, 10.7 oz. – Retail Value $2.99

Wow, ok. So even though I had no idea these existed, they are available in stores. The package says it’s “Limited Edition”, so I’m not sure how long they’ll be around. Bottom line: I know now, and I am excited.

OREO has been doing these packages that open from the top and have a resealable top, which is cool. The size of this pack is more square than the normal sized OREO package (which looks to be 14.3 oz.), so you get fewer than the widely available flavors. I counted 3 rows of 7 cookies, for a total of 21 per package.

Now, let’s get to the taste-test! The cookie is golden yellow and the filling is a chocolate hazelnut cream, much like Nutella (but not as creamy). I could certainly eat about half this package in one sitting and feel like they get tastier as I go.

Hot & Spicy Cinnamon OREOs in package

Oooh- I haven’t seen this flavor either! My mom used to use those little cinnamon candies in baking all the time when I was a kid and I have fond memories of climbing on to the counter to get into the cabinet where she kept them. They paired the red filling with the classic chocolate cookie.

Like the chocolate hazelnut flavor, this package is slightly smaller than your average bag of OREOs and is also labeled as “limited edition”.

Once I bit into this, I was pleasantly surprised! I really like the combo of cinnamon and chocolate. I didn’t find these to be very “hot” or “spicy” but enjoyed the cinnamon flavor which I thought was pretty mild.

If you’re feeling kinda culinary, you can make some mug cakes using the Hot & Spicy Cinnamon OREOs with the recipe card they’ve included.

I just made this with hot water because I was out of milk, but you can use anything you’d like (soy milk, etc). The hot cocoa was a very dark brown and was very chocolatey, even with water. There were little cookie chunks floating around as well, as if made with crushed up OREOs. Pretty tasty!

Grey and black OREO socks

OREO Socks

I poked around the web quickly and didn’t see these for sale, so I’m thinking they may be exclusive to the box. They’re a good size, so I’d say they are unisex and probably even a little big for my size 6 lady feet.

They’re black and grey and have an OREO cookie on the foot, with the OREO design patterned all around the leg as well. The toe, heel, and top are solid grey.

Although not super warm, these are a nice quality and high for cooler months.

Verdict: OREO Cookie Club Subscription Box was really fun to try! Even though you have to buy at least a three-month subscription to this box ($59.97), they list the MSRP as $24.99 per box. I received two packages of OREOs, plus 2 packets of hot cocoa mix, a recipe, and a pair of socks. I was a bit bummed that both flavors I received were available to purchase instead of being exclusive, but this is their first box so I have high hopes if they get a good following. Even though I liked having two limited edition OREOs delivered to my door, this box seems a little steep, price-wise. Perhaps this makes a better gift for the OREO enthusiast or someone who may not have access to the more obscure flavors.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? It looks like it!

Value Breakdown: At $19.99 for this box, you’re paying approximately $5.00 per item (I counted the hot cocoa as 1 item and did not count the recipe).

  1. I think the only was this box would be worth while at this price is if they were to send me flavors that are exclusive go other countries. ,(Since the shipping cost to get will make them more valuable)

    Other than that this is just a one time novelty I may get for a friend who loves Oreos.

  2. I just tried the hazelnut Oreo’s last night. They are soooo good. Like Marne, I think I could easily eat half a bag if I wanted to. 🙂 I also saw the cinnamon Oreo’s, but the word “spicy” made me back away, and I wasn’t sure how the cinnamon/chocolate combo would taste.

  3. I will give you 10.00 a month with free shipping for this box. My son would love it but wow is the price high.

    • I was thinking the same thing! That’s ridiculous for 2 bags of Coke’s (like $3.00 a bag??), 2 pouches of cocoa (.50), and some amazing can (2.50 the most). Anyone that subscribed to this is a little batty. Just saying….

      • And they are usually on sale at the store like BOGO or 2 for $6.00

  4. For that price, they would have to include at least double the amount of cookies. And in exclusive flavors NOT available in stores. Otherwise it just seems silly and greedy on Nabisco’s part. I get there are people for whom Oreos are a “thing”(Just look at all the pinterest recipes that use Oreos in ways that seem less than appetizing) but this is out of hand.

  5. The value isn’t there, but it does seem like an interesting idea

  6. Glad you guys bought and reviewed this, as I saw it on a different site, but not a review, just a listing that it was available. Glad I did not splurge as I already tried both cookies already. Socks are very cute, but not at the price they’re charging. Oh well.

  7. Each cookie package is $3, the hot cocoa packets about $1, and the recipe card has no value. So the socks have a retail value of $18? I find that very hard to believe.

  8. This box/subscription makes me sad. I feel like it’s a large company taking advantage of the consumer. This is a big, well established company – the sky’s the limit for them and this box. Look at how Adidas handled their (‘now paused’) Avenue A box. Value high, careful curation. It really felt like something special. This does not.

    • I wish Adidas would return. Le sigh.

      With that said, I totally agree with you about some strange marketing team taking advantage ( or trying to) with different flavored filling of a different color. Just typing ” different flavor of a different color” makes me laugh, because almost ALL goods in the developed countries of the world have many variations.

      This box is likely not going to survive and we will see the leftovers in reviews for ” The Monthly Box of Awesome” or whatever the name is, and ” Peaches and Petals”, the offshoot brand of that company.

      BTW, in the late 1990’s, early 2000’s, I entered sweepstakes as a little hobby via the Internet. Nabisco had frequent offers of free tee shirts in children to adult sizes featuring their various products and often, other ” swag” for just entering.
      The sweepstakes prizes were really nice for children to tween ages, usually.

      I think that if Nabisco wants to promote Oreo cookies and LE Oreo cookies ( that makes me laugh again), then they need to do so on a Nabisco sweepstakes type of platform.
      Everyone wins something, usually.

      Mars/ M&M did this once with a huge number of daily giveaways of personalized special color/ flavor M&Ms. I think there were thousands of instant winners ( via an internet ” spinner”) per day for a month or so. Anyone could find it easily.

      This is such silly greed. Grocery store cookies are grocery store cookies no matter what color or flavor the filling to me.

  9. You had me at Oreo sub-box! You lost me at $60 for 3 mos subscription!

    • LOL!

    • Same. I’d love to subscribe, but not at that price. $20 per month is ridiculous! I mean, do they add crack to the cookies? That might justify the price. Ugh.

  10. The balance in one’s bank account does NOT matter! This is an insanely overpriced box of cookies I consider to be ” last choice mediocre” in the regular flavor.
    I would not subscribe to this box for any price.

    Also, branded logo merchandise of a readily available food product is free advertising for the brand. Therefore, the item has NO value ( unless feet are freezing cold, then there is a ” practical use value” temporarily.

  11. I would totally subscribe to this if the price wasn’t so insane and had more cookies. $11.99 for 3 flavors, or something like that. It can be nearly impossible to find some of their LE flavors, so I like that aspect. Walmart sells lots of different ones, for 2/$6 usually.

  12. @Marne the Oreo Hot Cocoa mix is $3-$4 in regular stores like Walmart and Target.

    • Oh, nice! I’ll update that cheaper price at Walmart! Thank you!

  13. You have to be really hardcore or rich to buy this…

  14. If it’s $60 for 3 months, wouldn’t that be only $20 a month? Still too pricey in my opinion… but better than $25. The box looks so fun tho! I would love those socks and the hazelnut oreos

    • Ahhhh, good callout, Mikayla. I was going off of what they called the “MSRP” which I’m realizing is what they are saying the box VALUE is. I’ve updated the pricing at the end of the review.

      Thanks for catching!

      • Maybe they think the box is an item too and has worth? They could seriously start a cult if this was priced at $10 and has free advertising from the good pr and people wearing their stuff. They totally dropped the ball.

  15. Wow that price is insane. Just… wow.

    • Not no. Hell no.
