Ok do I like cookies?..Yes Ok do i like Oreo cookies?...Heck yeah! So what exactly went wrong with this new flavor??? Seriously, I took the leap a few years ago when the golden oreoes came out, I initially thought that it was an oxy moron that the company that makes great chocolate cookies would make a cookie that was vanilla? Where would my tasty choco crunch fix come from when eating this pale bland cream cookie??? But of course I was wrong and fell in love with this cookie that gives the same crunch and creamy goodness as it's choco cousin :-) Awesomeness can be reassured with only a single, crunchy bite... CRunCH!!! I would personally say I wasn't wild about the super sweet cream that not only was bubble gum pink, but for some reason there were little crystal crunchy bits mixed in the soft cream??? really I don't want to go from crunchy cookie to soft cram and then WHam! tiny crunchy bits of sugar... In the end I won't buy them again but who knows kids will eat anything, maybe those of you with kids can have a fun summer treat?

As a fellow cookie aficianado, I share in your pain and disappointment over the Oreo Berry Burst. I, too, was hesitant to try the Golden Oreos when they came out, but eventually gave them a try. Since that first reluctant bite, I have become a huge fan of the Oreo Goldens, especially dipping them in milk. In fact, I am not ashamed to say that they are now my favorite Oreo cookie. A couple of weeks ago, emboldened by my experience with the Golden Oreo, I tried the Golden Oreo Fudge Cream with Birthday Cake flavor. I was very disappointed by these cookies and will not be trying them again. Thank you for the warning regarding the Oreo Berry Burst. I suspect that they will be much like the Oreo Fudge Cream with Birthday Cake. I think that I shall pass on the Oreo Berry Bursts. But I will carry on in the hopes that Oreo will once again produce a masterpiece akin to their first forray into the Double Stuff world!

Hello Page Turner (avid reader?) :-) I'm high-fiving you right now "Smack!" :-) Thank you for not only responding, but for adding to the discussion with information I can also use. Birthday cake flavor??? wow i'm with you I'll stick to the one and only O-R-E-O (original). As we the consumers are tempted by the best new thing out there we tend to base our decisions on the history of the manufacturer, with the mindset of "once a winner always a winner" but we all should know by now that treading lightly is key and lot's and lot's of in store sampling ha ha ha! :-) :-)

Yes, I think that I am a purist at heart and will remain with the Oreo that I know and love the best (and also the Oreo Golden.)

I have not been introduced to this new Oreo-cookie. Maybe it is not in my area yet. Sounds like this cookie would make a great Blizzard Treat.:-)

Well I must admit a few of the new flavors are new to me and a bit surprising in there various combinations, yet I did like the oreo cakester, and the oreo fudgecreams. of course the common pattern is that they were all variations of the original recipe :-) I do wonder how some of the wakcy flavors would taste like if used as the base of a pie, like the oreo pie pans you can buy or make??? "The world may never know" Ha Ha Ha :-D

Hi, my kids are cookie fans, and me, yeah not as big fan like they are. I also like the original oreo, black cookie with white cream filling. I dislike the other oreo flavors, the original is the best. And in my opinion if you want me to be honest, the golden oreo is the worst .

I do agree but i'm not sure if it's the many flavors that I don't like or if I'm not great when it comes to changes, especially food changes???

I read about green tea Oreo's in an article about a month ago. Course I had to go searching. They make so many different flavors not available to the United States. Green tea, peanut butter, banana caramel and so many other. Some were limited additions. Someone said on a message board they even make cherry blossom flavored Twix! O.M.G., we have truly been shortchanged here, not fair. I definitely want to try the green tea, I love green tea ice cream. At least you can get that at some restaurants here, sigh.

I'm surprised about this flavor as well, cherry blossom Twix? banana caramel oreo?? I guess I could handle a few of these flavors if it wasn't the flavor of the cream, but could be the cookies flavor? crunchy flavor seems a whole lot more tasty than a gobb of mixed flavor creams. But maybe Oreo could start a line of cream-less cookies, I could crumble some of these flavors into ice cream or heck does anyone remember oreo cereal? I admit I used to eat nesquick cereal. But after so many flavors are mashed up you can only be a fan for so long :-( I have to start another topic soon about cereal flavors:-)
