On a recent trip to Walmart (can you get more American) I noticed an end-cap with a whole bunch of patriotic treats for the upcoming July 4th Holiday. Red, White, and Blue Chips Ahoy, Twinkies, Hostess Cupcakes and Ding Dongs, and my personal favorite, Oreos!
Now that the July 4th weekend is here, the kids and I put on patriotic colors, donned our patriotic hats, and we're going to have a Red, White, and Blue Oreo taste test!
The packaging is classic Oreo. Those three layers of creme look impressive. I wonder how close the real thing will be. And aww, that's unfortunate the Olympics have been cancelled this year. Looks like Oreo was all set to release these to go along with them. They've got the Olympic rings on the package and on the cookies.
There's two patriotic designs on these cookies. On one there's a flag (couldn't quite fit 50 stars on there, huh) and on the other are laurels with Team USA in the middle.
As for the cookie, I do see three distinct color layers. Not quite as clean as the picture on the package, but what do you expect.
Alli is a budding photographer. She's always taking pictures and recording video with her iPad. Today she's helping out take photos of the Oreos.
Alright, that's enough talking. Now let's eat them!
Yum! These are delicious! They don't have any special flavoring, but they do taste better than regular Oreos. Perhaps there's just a little bit more America in these that makes them taste better.
Mommy wanted a taste to verify our claim. She agreed, these are better.
Alli is examining all 3 layers.
And she found that the red creme layer isn't exactly solid. There's a hole in the middle!

I was curious if the other layers were similar. They are really stuck together though. I did not have much luck separating them. Perhaps it's this sunny Southern California weather and the fact that it's nearly 80 degrees inside the house.
So why do these taste better than regular Oreos. I have an idea.
Last year when "The Most Stuf" Oreos came out, I did a comprehensive look at all the different amounts of creme inside.
Actually, if you do a google search for Oreo Sizes or Oreo Size Comparison and other variations of that phrase, flowerstales.com is the top search result along with a bunch of my photos!
So why are these Oreos so good? I think it has to do with the amount of creme inside. I happen to have a package of Mega Stuf Oreos on hand and we can see that there's 180 calories for 2 cookies on each package. I've previously shown that the cookies are all the same size, so these Red White and Blue Oreos must have the same amount of filling as Mega Stuf Oreos!
And comparing the two, it's pretty close. Happy Fourth of July!
