For those who think original Oreos are too boring, Nabisco has announced the chocolate sandwich cookie’s newest flavor: the Firework Oreo.
Cosmopolitan magazine describes it as an Oreo with Pop Rocks in the creme.” It’s not the real Pop Rocks carbonated candy that baby boomers grew up with Pop Rocks were invented in 1956but red and blue sprinkles that the packaging describes as a popping candy.
Food & Wine magazine received an advance package of the cookies and had staffers try them.
“As it turns out, much like actual fireworks, theyre relatively enjoyable and kind of fun for while,” writer Adam Campbell-Schmitt wrote. “The Firework Oreos are basically your classic cream-filled cookie. Theres no real taste difference, just a slight gritty texture from the popping candies in the frostingalthough not as grainy as the sugar-laced Peeps Oreos from this Easter.”
