Pumpkin spice Oreos

I confess I was a bit scared when I found this one. My first thought was, “How in the world is a chocolate cookie going to taste with pumpkin spice filling?” My fear subsided when I found the pumpkin spice cream smashed between two vanilla cookies.

Each season, Nabisco comes up with a seasonal flavor for its Oreo cookie. This cookie is a welcomed veer from the traditional Oreo path.

Unfortunately, the special edition flavors tend to be more expensive than their regular counterparts. One 10.7 oz package of Pumpkin Spice Oreos costs $3.39 before taxes.

While the cookie is still extremely sweet — like all Oreos — the pumpkin spice flavor is not overwhelmingly sweet. But, I still could not eat more than two cookies at a time.

The pumpkin spice Oreo is a win in my book, but I will only eat them on a fall afternoon, complete with a cup of coffee and a sunset.
