Ice Cream Oreo Cookies N' Cream

This time, instead of Oreos in ice cream we have ice cream in Oreos.  Specifically, we have Oreo ice cream inside of Oreos.

In some sort of silly meta food marketing idea, Oreo has decided to create another ice cream-inspired flavor, but this time the ice cream flavor would be cookies and cream-- simple vanilla ice cream containing crumbled chocolate wafer cookies-- thereby spending production and marketing money in such a foolhardy way that it leaves me surprised.

This is like making a variety of Doritos flavored like "Taco Bell Doritos Locos Tacos", or like Rice Krispies making a cereal meant to taste like Rice Krispies Treats.  Oh wait, they actually created the latter... and thank god you can still order it online, because it's incredible.

Reveling in the absurdity, I opened the package and sunk my teeth in, literally.  In a surprising fashion, they actually tasted exactly as I expected them to, which is to say not quite the same as the original Oreo.  The additional specks of cookie crumbs in the seemingly unchanged vanilla creme adds the slightest bit of extra chocolate cookie flavor, and perhaps a slightly dryer texture on the tongue and on the swallow.

Almost identical to the original, and I'm not sure I could have told you it was different with my eyes closed.

Ice Cream Oreo Cookies N' Cream: - Great
Original Oreo(for comparison): - Great
