Recently, both Tim Horton’s and Dunkin’ Donuts have released new Oreo-inspired coffee creations: the Oreo Iced Capp and the Oreo Frozen Coffee Coolatta, respectively. As a lover of anything coffee and a fan of Oreos (who isn’t?), I decided to set these two similar drinks against one another in an epic taste test so that you know where to go the next time you’re craving a sweet and refreshing drink or cookie-filled dessert.
At first glance, I was not impressed. From the drink’s appearance, it seemed to be an original Iced Capp with some Oreo crumbs sprinkled on top of the whipped cream.
However, I was instantly delighted after I took my first sip. There are pieces of Oreo cookies blended throughout the drink, creating a wondrous Oreo/coffee experience with each sip. This frozen drink probably won’t satisfy a desire for a strong coffee taste or caffeine buzz, but it is most certainly a great option when you’re in the mood for a sweet treat.
- Perfect coffee-to-Oreo-crumb ratio
- Very thick consistency, like your favorite milkshake
- Whipped cream!
- Can’t really taste the coffee
- Sugar overload (although this is to be expected)
Upon receiving my Coolatta, I was instantly disappointed. This drink has a very thin consistency. I was in complete and utter shock after seeing that there was also an absence of whipped cream (say what?). Although there were some Oreo crumbles blended into the drink, most of them settled to the bottom, so the most enjoyable sips were the last few. On a brighter note, however, I could still taste the flavor of coffee while enjoying the sweet and delicious addition of the Oreo.
- Strong coffee flavor
- Tasty Oreo crumbles (although mostly at the bottom)
- Whipped cream is optional?
- Thin consistency
And the winner is:
After weighing the pros and cons of the contender drinks against one another, the winner achieves first place by a significant margin: Tim Horton’s Oreo Iced Capp. From visual presentation to overall taste, the Oreo Iced Capp has totally rocked my world and strengthened my love for America’s favorite cookie.
