Review: Oreo Thins

Oreo Thins are a thinner, crispy version of regular Oreos. They're basically meant to be a more sophisticated version of Oreos.

A 10.1-oz package was $2.50 on sale.

I thought Oreo Thins would be wider than a regular Oreo but they're actually the same in diameter; just much flatter (about half the height of a normal Oreo).

As far as the creme goes, there's less creme but the ratio of creme-to-wafer seems the same. Given that and that the wafers and creme are the same as the original Oreo cookies, it shouldn't be surprising that the Thins have the same taste. Where they differ is the texture of the wafers: Oreo Thins have a delicate, crisp feel to them rather than the more sturdy and comparatively hard regular Oreos.

If you're the type of person that likes to pull their Oreos apart into two halves, you'll find you'll have to do it very carefully with these. Because of their thinness, the wafers feel like they'll break if you twist or pull too hard or too quickly.

Overall, I thought Oreo Thins were really nice. I love regular Oreos and the Thins offer a bit more texture and as well as some novelty to the formula without affecting the taste. They're also nice if you like to snack on Oreos as they come out to 4 cookies per serving compared to 2 cookies of the originals.
