- Oreo Golden Oreo Fudge Creme, 11.3-Ounce (Pack of 4)
Not As Yummy As I Had Hoped
Maybe Oreo will take my idea and run with it. I am sure that would sell better than these.
Where Have You Been All My Life?
Very sweet cookie
As far as taste is concerned, past the super sweetness, it does taste pretty good with plenty of chocolaty peanut butter flavor.
But, wow, are they sweet! How did Nabisco pack so much sweet into such a small cookie?
The cookie is about as thin as one side of the Oreo creme filled cookie. Kudos to Nabisco for actually covering the whole cookie with fudge and not just the front side. There is a thin layer of some sort of peanut butter creme on the top side of the cookie under the fudge coating. The PB seems to be where most of the awful sweetness is coming from.
I’m not someone that reads every nutrition label for everything I buy and usually I just take it as a given that a treat like a cookie is not super healthy. But these little jewels are so sweet it will make you wonder exactly what you are eating.
Dang. 3 cookies is 9g of fat and 170 calories (80 fat). Contrast that with the traditional Oreo: 15 cookies for 160 (60 fat) and 7g fat.
I think it is worth mentioning since I couldn’t find any nutritional information on the product page.
I’m not a fan of the eat healthy band wagon but good Lord. Surely a warning label should be required on something that looks so innocuous. Maybe the outline of a hugely obese person and a fat playful exclamation mark.
Let me also point out that if you buy this from Amazon you need to have someone available to get the package as soon as it arrives if it is moderately warm in your area when you purchase them. My shipping package was left out in the sun a while and some of the cookies that had come out of their slots were somewhat melted and stuck together. Nabisco did a great job with the tray they ride in but shipping may unseat them and then the heat will glue them together. I threw mine in the freezer for a bit to solidify the fudge before I opened them.
Oh. I have to say that I like the resealable package. I guess I haven’t bought that type of package before or if I have all the cookies were gone before they could be resealed. It works very well and is much easier than the usual zip lock type resealable package.
1 star for an excessively sweet taste in an excessively sweet cookie that could be a poster child for bad industry.
The package I have of these is peanut butter. I can take or leave the peanut butter/chocolate union most of the time; I eat one mini peanut butter cup at Halloween, and that’s about it for the year. But these are exceptionally yummy. there is a chocolate Oreo cracker there, and a layer of peanut butter, and the whole thing is dipped in a nice dark-ish fudgy chocolate to create a new rich type of Oreo goodness.
It’s tasty. Well, more than that; it’s the experience of being taken into a cookie-dominated plane of existence where there is nothing but you, the cookie, and deep regrets (kind of like Casablanca, except you can find what you’re looking for at the supermarket).
But beware: this is not a light cookie experience. These are dark, and rich, and dense, and they have–I swear–a very strong gravitational pull. Beware the tides!
Oh, and to descend to the practical and prosaic, the bag has the best plastic self-resealing flap I’ve seen so far.
Delicious addition to the Oreo family
Caveat up front – I did not eat these, but gave them to my resident cookie critics (one of which is a one-type-of-peanut-butter-only young lass). Said cookie critics are huge fans of original and Double Stuff Oreos and “dippy milk” (a true Oreo fan/critic cannot mix “drinking milk” and “dippy milk”), but haven’t been that excited about other Oreo types. I was very interested to hear back from them on these.
Immediately upon receipt of the cookies, some were put into the freezer for a few hours (as I understand from these critics that it’s the preferred way to eat a fudge covered sandwich cookie). After an appropriate amount of time (also known as “after dinner”), the critics turned their highly tuned critical senses to these fudge covered treats. Both frozen and room temperature cookies were devoured in a very un-critic-like manner, and promptly given two thumbs up, tons of smiles and “yummmmms” and highly recommended for future purchases.
Who am I to argue with them? Our recommendations are to freeze them for maximum enjoyment.
Hit the back button before it’s too late…
These cookies are nothing short of amazing!
I don’t really eat cookies, and if I did eat a cookie, It wouldn’t be an oreo (not really a fan).
However, I was offered the chance to try out these cookies, and WOW…
At first I didn’t know what to expect, I figured I’d eat a cookie or two, and move on (and let someone else eat the cookies).
Sadly… that wasn’t the case!
I ate one cookie, (OMG) the taste was extravagant… creamy, tasty, smooth, and just so wonderful…
Shortly after I realized I just finished off an entire row, panic set it (there were only 4-5 more rows left), I ate a few more (self control flies out the window when eating something oh so nice, especially when combined with a coffee)…
Luckily I was saved, some friends were coming over and I was able to shove the box in their faces and they helped me out…
I think the box lasted all of an hour, and it was all I could do to not run out and get more!
These cookies are fantastic, once you start you won’t stop.
Bottom Line: Fantastic cookie, great taste, nothing like an Oreo.
Tip: Eat the cookie upside down, tastes much better (don’t ask why!)
Con: 50 some calories a cookie (I find this out AFTER finishing off the box!) OH well, you live and you learn 😛
This is for the peanut butter creme, not golden variety…
My first impression was that these are “weak-sauce Tagalongs” (Girl Scout cookies). They’re thinner, and don’t taste super peanut buttery. The package clearly says “Peanut Butter” with “Creme” in small letters next to it, so I’ve theorized that the “creme” part means it’s the familiar Oreo creme that has *some* peanut butter flavor added.
The cookie texture is nice. Very crisp and tasty. It’s just when everything is put together that it’s kind of disappointing. I have hope for the original flavor, Oreo Fudge Cremes, 8.5-Ounce Boxes (Pack of 4), but have yet to try them.
That said, I do keep eating them. They kind of grow on you, so that’s why I think my expectation of what a regular Oreo is gave me a bad first impression. I don’t think, though, that I’d put one in my shopping cart if I came across it again.
Where is the peanut butter or the fudginess?
We thought the packaging was an excellent idea because all you have to do is pull a tab and then the tray of cookies is revealed. Problem was that although it was not shipped in warm weather a good bit of the chocolate coating came off on the aluminum foil when it was lifted.
The manufacturer did an excellent job in designing this package as the cookies are on a tray separated by plastic bars. Problem is if the package is turned upside down then the chocolate comes off on the cover.
We would not recommend these for youngsters as the chocolate immediately comes off on fingers. So, serve them outdoors unless you want sticky brown fingers around the house.
Since the taste is relatively mild they might be nice served with ice cream or sherbert for dessert. However, they simply don’t have the distinctive taste of the original Oreo cookie and shipping them is certainly problematic.
Sorry we could not have been more [positive because we truly love to eat!

Tasty cookies, one star off for outrageous price
Oh. My. Goodness! HEAVEN in a Cookie!
Oh my goodness! Oreo Peanut Butter Fudge Crème has to be the best cookie I’ve ever eating!
This Oreo is a wafer topped with a layer of a rich, creamy peanut butter then both are wrapped in the sweetest tasting fudge to ever touch your tastebuds.
Not only have I found something to match the orignal Oreo, but Oreo Peanut Butter Fudge Crème actually BEATS it! I now have a new cookie addiction – YUMMY!
Out of the 10 or so people who ate them, 8 said they enjoyed them (came back for seconds). The other two were not impressed.
Overall, I thought they were great, and will buy again.
Betcha Can’t Eat Just One
They have a nice crunch, a good amount of fudge flavor, are thin enough to make you not feel bad about eating a half dozen. You are going to have a hard time finding a cookie that beats these guys in the flavor department. My hat is off to Oreo, I think they just created the next Oreo with these things.
Indulge on Peanut Butter & Fudge with a crispy oreo cookie crunch
Picture one of the tops of an Oreo cookie thinned down half its size to form a wafer, then put creamy peanut butter on top, followed by submerging the whole thing in a choclate fudge coating. Still half the thickness of a oreo regular cookie, but packs a bigger and satisifying taste. Flat on the bottom and round on top these cookies are simiply delicious and guarenteed to be a crowd pleaser! Each 11.5 ounce box contains twenty eight cookies. Can’t wait to try their other flavors!
The excess sweetness of these cookies makes it hard to eat more than one, which is a good thing considering the nutritional information. Overall, these cookies are much too sweet with a taste more like a candy bar.
A yummy treat
So I was excited to have the opportunity to try the new “Peanut Butter Creme Oreo Fudge Cremes”. While I think that they could shorten the name of these cookies a bit, the bottom line is that they are yummy.
The only description on the bag is “fudge covered chocolate cookies” so they could probably expand on that a bit. But basically, it tastes like a single cookie wafer with peanut butter creme stuck to the side and then the whole thing covered in a soft fudge.
The bag I received was 11.3 ounces, which is a generous size. It is also resealable, so not only is it very easy to get at the cookies without a knife, scissors or your teeth, but it’s also easy to reseal the bag and keep the cookies fresh. Of course they probably won’t be around long anyway, because you’re going to gobble them up. At least, that’s what I expect to do.
I really like these cookies. If this was a Girl Scout cookie, I’m sure they’d sell very well. I definitely do recommend them. Just try not to eat the whole bag at once!
These taste great
Continuing with the Girl Scout Cookie Theme, Mint are Better
The Mint Oreo Fudge Cremes taste a lot like Girl Scout Thin Mints. In keeping with the Girl Scout theme, these taste a bit like the Tagalongs.. only thinner. Honestly, I didn’t like them as much as the Mint Oreo Fudge Cremes. The peanut butter is overpowering, and I barely tasted any chocolate. I think this would work better as a traditional Oreo sandwich cookie (chocolate cookie top and bottom) then covered in fudge. Instead, one has a very thin wafer (thinner than a typical Oreo top or bottom), with a disc of peanut butter, covered by a chocolate shell.
If in a store, I had a choice between “regular” Oreos and the Mint Oreo Fudge Cremes, I’d buy the Mint Oreo Fudge Cremes quite often. (Although, you can’t go wrong with the classic Oreos.)
If in a store, I had a choice between “regular” Oreos and the Peanut Butter Oreo Fudge Cremes, I’d always buy the regular Oreos…. or the Mint Oreos.
Miss for me on this one. And I love peanut butter. If you do like these or the other Fudge Cremes, be sure to check your local store’s sale flyer. They were under $3.00 where I live–which is a great deal.
Super Yummy! Get ’em away from me!
The nutritional content being what it is, I would definitely make these a rare treat, as the 56 calories per cookie can add up. A special dessert, not a daily snack for sure.
One warning– I wouldn’t recommend ordering these online. By the time these got to me on a warm spring day, they were a melted mess in the box. All I did was pop them in the fridge to solidify and they were fine. But they weren’t very pretty and were all stuck to the plastic container. I would recommend buying them from your local retailer instead.
Peanut Butter Oreos…blech
I haven’t tried the mint which I could possibly like, but I’m reviewing the Peanut Butter ones at the moment.
My teenager says they should get 4 stars since she is eating one as I type this..and she hates peanut butter, but I think they should give them a different name….An Oreo should just be an oreo….an oreo is two disk-shaped cookies with white creamy filling sandwiched in between, hence it’s called a sandwich cookie. This is one cookie with a peanut butter topping dipped in chocolate, and it’s a dark chocolate which is not my favorite. The peanut-shaped cookies you can buy with the peanut butter filling are way better when I have a craving for a peanut butter type cookie. When I crave an oreo, I want the original!
SUPER CUTE, VERRRYY Sweet, smell amazing..a weird review…
They are super melty. I had HAD to keep em in the fridge. A good note for whatever plans you may have. Also, they do have a very strong scent. Personally, and this is the weird part, I could sleep in this bag! I used to buy these amazing air fresheners that were marketed as vanilla. Well, every time ANYONE came in my house they were so disappointed that I wasn’t baking a treat. Over and over: Sorry, it’s just my air freshener. Sorry…” Sigh. Well, these smell exactly like it! Yummy, vanilla, cookie cake smell. Love it.
I don’t know how this all adds up for you. I won’t be buying them again because of my not loving super sweet stuff. But if you do, you should give them a try. If your darling daughter loves tea parties, she would love these too! Oh, by the way, they are much smaller than any oreo. These are a pretty slim cookie.
My standards may be too high
On the other hand, my family thought they were fabulous and my husband ate almost half the package. He is a huge Oreo fan, as are my other family members who were happy to indulge.
So for m, 3 stars. From my family 5 stars. So I settled on 4 stars. I guess I’d rather eat Girl Scout cookies or Albertson’s bakery cookies, or best of all–homemade!
Good, but not as good as you might think from the description
The cookies are much thinner than the regular Oreos. They are essentially “half of an Oreo” covered with fudge, although the crispy part may be even thinner than that. The fudge covering is very tasty as well, but again nothing spectacular.
When it comes to nutritional content, these cookies are definitely inferior to the regular Oreos. They contain 9 g of fat, 4.5 g of saturated fat, and 17 g of sugar as opposed to 7 g, 2 g, and 14 g respectively in regular Oreos.
These cookies are very tasty, but not as tasty as you would have suspected based on the list of ingredients. I certainly prefer the regular Oreos taste, and when it comes to similar fudge-covered cookies I think they are better alternatives out there.
Yummy change from typical Oreo
Better than the Peanut Butter Oreos
These are better than the Peanut Butter, in that I can still taste the Golden Oreo cookie. With the Golden Fudge Oreo, The different flavors of the Golden cookie, the Vanilla creme and the Fudge chocolate all are distinct and work together well.
I might not want them everyday, but will be a occasional treat for me.
Oreo Versus the Girl Scouts of America
These Oreo Golden Oreo Fudge Crèmes, also available in Oreo Regular Fudge Crèmes, Oreo Mint Fudge Crèmes, and Oreo Peanut Butter Fudge Crèmes, are IMHO BETTER tasting than the Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies so while I might in future be persuaded to purchase fund raising thin mint cookies, they will be for other people.
I’ll be eating these!
Note: As other reviewers have noted, this is not an entirely new concept for Oreo, which has offered limited editions of chocolate dipped whole sandwich cookies: Oreo Mint Fudge Covered Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, Oreo Pure Milk Chocolate Covered Mint Sandwich Cookies, and Oreo White Fudge Covered Chocolate Sandwich Cookies. The trouble is that these are by definition limited editions that may not be available when you want to purchase them while the new fudge covered half cookies look to be a regular stock item available year round.
