Limited Edition Oreo Strawberry Cheesecake (Morrisons) By @Cinabar

New flavours of Oreos biscuits are a bit like buses, you wait around for ages and then two arrive at once. We have only recently reviewed the rather lovely new Mint Oreos when these fine new biscuits appear on the Morrisons website. They may be a late addition to the website, as the flavour sounds more summery than autumnal, but its is the first I’ve seen of them.

The new Oreo flavour is Strawberry Cheesecake, and as strawberry and chocolate is a classic combination I was rather looking forward to them.
The biscuits are made with the usual dark Oreo on the top and bottom, and the filling inside is a pleasant pink colour. The flavour of the filling was very sweet, almost like strawberry icing, but the dark biscuits either side of it helped balance it. To be honest I have a sweet tooth, and the idea of somebody taking a strawberry cream chocolate and turning it into a biscuit works well for me. It is difficult to get passed my sweetness limit, and the sugary taste felt like rather a treat.
My only issue is that I’m not sure where the cheesecake element comes from. I’m not sure if there was something in the flavour I was missing or whether it was just for marketing purposes, but to me these were essentially strawberry Oreos. As it turns out, I rather like Strawberry Oreos too, here is hoping we get a few more new Oreo flavours as they seem to be on a roll.
