Lemon Twist Oreo

Oreo has been slinging an impressive amount of ephemeral cookies, so much so that I have a backlog.
Two summery limited edition flavors of Oreo were released last summer: Lemon Twist and Banana Split.

The Lemon Twist Oreos are simply a variety of Golden Oreo that has a lemony filling, vaguely reminiscent of the old Baskin Robbins Oreo Gold Rush ice cream.  The taste of these bear nothing more than their simple concept.  The vanilla cookie pairs well with the lemon filling, which is plenty lemony, but I wish it were more tangy.

Have you ever gotten a bag of mini lemon creme sandwich cookies from a vending machine?  These aren't as good as those.  It's tough to make that call without tasting them side by side, but I just said it.  It's a decent effort by Oreo, though.

Lemon Twist Oreo:- Good
Original Golden Oreo(for comparison):- Great
