When I first saw this stocked on my grocer’s shelves I initially picked up the coconut flavor. Because, hello, I’m in Hawaii - why wouldn’t I want to try a coconut flavored mini oreo dipped in chocolate fudge. Sounds amazing, right?Well, I didn’t get so lucky. But that’s just because the coconut flavored oreos had passed their expiration date and the man behind the counter refused to sell them since the sell-by date had been exceeded. Bummer!He was kind enough to offer me the plain ole Oreo variety as a swap and, since I was desperate for a chocolate fix, I reluctantly agreed. Although, in my heart, I really wanted those lil coconuts.
Just the same, I cannot complain, because these adorably tiny oreos dipped in chocolate fudge still satisfied my hunger without being such a large portion that I felt like a piglet for polishing off the entire pouch in one sitting.
The taste is exactly like the regular-sized, fudge-dipped Oreos we’ve all come to know and love, but the tiny size makes this an ideal topping for an ice cream sundae, or as an embellishment for some other decadent dessert. They also stand alone as a yummy treat unto themselves. Proof once again why Oreo is America’s favorite sandwich cookie.
