Childhood Memories Ruined
Having grown up eating the original Oreo O's from post like 15 plus years ago, I got incredibly excited seeing these on shelves again after they stopped being produced by Post. I decided to give these a try for the nostalgia trip, but sad to say that these were an absolute dissapointment for people trying to relieve their childhood memories of saturday morning cartoons and sugary cereal. They were bland, smooth and a complete a mockery to their former selves. It has lost its shattering crunch. The actual pieces of marshmallow that formed the white part. Now they are simply just cheerios wearing the colours of oreos. If I wanted to buy cheerios, I would have bought cheerios. My childhood is in shambles and my weekend is ruined. I'm sorry but I can't recommend this to anyone in good conscience. Maybe I'm expecting too much, and the current incarnation is held back by things such as the sugar tax. Maybe I'm in a dark place right now and projecting too much. However, I strongly believe a new generation of children would have grown up completely fine without having this abomination of a product in their lives.
Oreo O-h no's
For the price I was expecting these to be amazing. To be honest I'm not sure how they even label it 'Oreo' because it couldn't taste anything less like them. It just kind of feels like eating sugary charcoal.
Poorly thought out dual ingredients
So, these are fine as a sweet cereal, some of the reviews here say 'bland' or compare them to other chocolate cereal but they're missing the point. Have you had an Oreo? The biscuit isn't very chocolatey really, it's a dusty-ish analogy of chocolate, very American. The dark hoops in this cereal are basically the same so as an Oreo cereal it satisfies the brief. BUT, the white 'pucks' - terrible idea. I get there's an attempt to replicate the icing of an Oreo, and the flavour is there (mildy vanilla-ish), but they soften almost immediately. Within a minute the hoops are slightly softer, but the icing pucks are total mush. It's not pleasant. Not sure how these made it past basic R&D/tasting. The hoops are wheat, the pucks are rice. Doesnt take a rocket scientist to see there's going to be a pretty big absorption difference. It's pretty gross and the only way to actually enjoy them is to eat them fast, or hoover up the white ones quickly. I don't like having to strategise my consumption of a bowl of cereal. If they sorted out the discrepancy of softening I'd probably give these a 3.5, not remarkable but ok, but as is I'm going for 2 starts (would do 1.5 if I could). Just but some Oreos for a fraction of the price, and dip them in some milk.
Really not nice, very sweet and little flavour.
White cereal bits flavourless/sigh
Was disappointed on the taste of these. Ok fair enough I don't like chocolate cereal but the white chunks had no flavour in them are quite bland. The chocolate ones in here there very strong chocolate flavoured. If you like nesquick this is basically it
it is amazing
it is amazing
Nice but too over priced
These were really nice but too overpriced :)
Nice if you like Oreo’s.
This cereal is nice if you like Oreos you’ll love this. It’s crunchy and sweet. I didn’t give 5 stars as it’s a little expensive. This cereal was bought as part of a promotion.
My kids love them . Really nice taste of them but
My kids love them . Really nice taste of them but a bit to expensive to buying them all the time
Bland. Poor version of weetoe's. Avoid
