OREO Cookie Club January 2018 Review
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 OREO Cookies, 10.7 oz. – Retail Value $2.99
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.
OREO Hot Cocoa Mix, 1.23 oz packets x2 – Buy a box of 8 for $3.83
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!
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.
The bottom of the inside of the OREO Cookie Club box. Agree or disagree?
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).
