Review: Papa John's - Oreo Cookie Papa Bites

Papa John's Oreo Cookie Papa Bites feature Oreo Cookie Papa Bites feature the chain's pizza dough rolled with Oreo cookie crumbles and cream cheese-flavored icing and then baked.

An 8-piece order goes for $4.99 and comes with Philadelphia Original Cheesecake Filling for dipping but I received this courtesy of Papa John's.

Each piece amounted to a moderate bite size that you can comfortably stuff in your mouth if you so choose.

The dough is the same as is used for Papa John's pizza and breadsticks. It was soft and very lightly crisped but was a bit too chewy (which is somewhat typical of big chain pizzas). It presented a fairly plain bread flavor that was accented with the Oreo cookie crumbles and cream cheese-flavored icing.

The Oreo cookie crumbles were actually crispy and provided a slightly bittersweet chocolaty flavor, while the cream cheese-flavored icing added just a touch of tang and lightly sweet creaminess. The distribution of the Oreo crumbs and icing were a bit uneven as far as quality control goes. I opened up two of them for pictures to show the variance and one almost only had crumbs and icing at an exposed end, while the other one pretty much had them both throughout.

The Philadelphia Original Cheesecake Filling looked and felt a lot like whipped butter (and actually contains some butter as well as buttermilk according to the ingredients listed on the Papa John's website) and added a moderate kick of sweet and creamy notes to go with a light tang when dipping the Bites.

For the most part, Papa John's Oreo Cookie Papa Bites felt like lightly-Oreo-flavored breadstick rolls. More Oreo crumbs and cream cheese-flavored icing might push it better into dessert territory. As it stands, they felt somewhere between sweet and savory, which made the cheesecake filling for dipping almost necessary rather than optional.
