At this point, it’s hard to deny that the entire world has been on a S’mores craze for the past few summers. Frappuccinos? Yes. Protein Powder? Uh huh. Vodka, because how else are we supposed to make childhood’s most nostalgic treat into a sickeningly sweet alcoholic beverage? It is summer time, after all.
The point I’m trying to make (if you weren’t sure) is that s’mores is a super trendy flavor for all things delicious, especially with summer upon us. So, while I wasn’t exactly surprised to hear about the launch of a limited edition S’mores Oreo (S’moreos?), the internet collectively lost. its. mind.
Described as a graham cracker flavored cookie with a layer of marshmallow flavored crème and a flavor of chocolate crème, they definitely had some serious potential. Obviously, I wasn’t about to be left out of this trend, so I ran to Target and grabbed a package. My only complaint was that the package was far too small, probably about two-thirds of the size of a standard package of Oreos, I’d have much preferred at least a full sized (or bigger, honestly) package.
Regardless of package size, these were very, very good. I could have gone for a stronger graham cracker flavor in the actual cookie (it tasted mostly like the regular vanilla Oreos, with only a little bit of graham-ey flavor), the marshmallow crème was to DIE for, and the chocolate complimented the marshmallow without overpowering it.
Having trouble finding them in stores? Here’s a link to buy them on amazon. Granted they’re about three times as much as what I paid for a package at Target, but desperate times can call for desperate measures. Happy munching!
