Oreo Salted Caramel Brownie Review

The Salted Caramel Brownie Oreos Just Became My Favourite Late-Night Snack


While innocently browsing the cookie aisle of my local grocery store, I happened to stumble upon a shelf filled with endless, intriguing Oreo flavours. Now, I've been in an exclusive relationship with the Double-Stuf Oreo's for as long as I can remember, especially after the gluten-free version hit the shelves. I'm not usually tempted by other flavours, holiday launches, or flashy packageing. In fact, I believe the only other Oreo flavour I've indulged in was the Mint Oreo Thins since they're my boyfriend's favourite and he always has some in my pantry. But when I spotted the Salted Caramel Brownie Oreos, I knew, instantly, that they were coming home with me.

Truth be told, I'm a total chocolate-lover, and any caramel-filled chocolate is my particular sweet spot. I have approximately zero self-control when it comes to anything sweet, so naturally, that makes me extremely qualified to judge new cookie flavours. Since I also love to make brownies and always end up devouring them at night, I was hoping these could be the perfect substitute for my late-night craving. To my joy, every individual cookie had a dusting of salt, just as advertised on the packageing. To sweeten the deal, the creme is actually divided into two different sections: one for the caramel, and one for the brownie flavour.

I poured myself a big glass of oat milk, dipped my cookie in, and began the taste test. To my surprise, the salt was the very first thing I tasted. Whoever made the call to add salt to Oreos genuinely needs a raise, because I don't think I could go back to eating them plain. In terms of the creme, the brownie flavour dominated the cookie. It was hard to taste the caramel, even when I isolated the creme. It mostly tasted like an extremely chocolatey Oreo cookie covered with sea salt — which, don't get me wrong, was delicious.

Overall, these Oreos are genuinely very good. I thoroughly enjoyed the brownie-flavoured creme and the pleasant salt surprise, but the caramel portion of the creme left more to be desired. If you're hoping for a strong caramel flavour, you may be disappointed. But, this flavour will definitely be making it into my Oreo rotation. I'll also start salting all of my Oreo's from here on out. Trust me on this one.
