Oreo lovers rejoice! The limited edition Tiramisu Oreo have begun to hit shelves across the US, making quarantine that much more interesting. I don’t know if any Oreo can live up to the Chocolate Marshmallow Oreos that were released last year, but I just had to give the Tiramisu cookies a try just in case.
Upon opening the package, I could smell a sweet aroma with hints of coffee. Now if you have never tried tiramisu, it’s a layered dessert comprised of ladyfingers dipped in coffee, a pudding-like mixture made with mascarpone cheese, and cocoa powder. That’s a lot of flavor to live up to but somehow Oreo managed to capture them all in one cookie.
The Tiramisu Oreos feature the same cookie that we all know and love with two layers of cream in between. The tan creme tastes brings out the coffee flavor of a quintessential tiramisu. In addition to the coffee flavor, the white creme resembles that of an Italian sweet cream.
Overall, I think the Tiramisu Oreos are a pleasant addition to the product portfolio. These cookies are quite sweet so I don’t see myself being able to eat that many in one sitting, which is probably for the best anyway. However, I think a Tiramisu Oreo with my morning latte is just the thing I need to get myself through these monotonous days in quarantine.
You can find the Tiramisu Oreo cookies in Target and Walmart stores nationwide. Be sure to check the product locator on each retailer’s website to make sure the item is in stock at your local store before you visit.
