Oreo Strawberry Creme (The 99p Store)
We do seem to be a bit limited with the variety of Oreos available in this country. Over in the States, there seems to be multi types, including fudge, peanut butter and many others I would love to get my mitts on. Over here we have regular Oreos, chocolate ones, and at Christmas white chocolate and that is it. I do keep my eyes open at the expensive food halls and the import shops, but strangely they seem to import regular Oreos. It was a bit of a surprise then to find these lovely looking Oreo Strawberry Creme biscuits in a discount pound shop. Don’t get me wrong, it was a really nice surprise, especially as there were eight packets of three biscuits bundled together for 99p!
The biscuits have the usual rich dark Oreo base, with a baby pink filling, instead of the usual white cream. They had a lovely strawberry smell, but the flavour wasn’t as intense as the aroma made me think it might be. The taste was well balanced though and gave a gentle sweet creamy strawberry flavour, which went with well with the dark biscuit. The strawberry may not taste one hundred percent natural, but the juicy flavour compensates and I don’t think it really matters. The strawberry works well with Oreos, the flavours blend well, and they were an unexpected but rather pleasing find.
