(50) Days of Pumpkin: Day 2
This pursuit will match me with both Oreos (a longstanding love) and pumpkin spice (a new crush). When you’re a junk food blogger, this is your idea of a sexy three-way. Can’t wait to brag to all of my friends about this one.
Pumpkin Spice Oreos are back for the third year in a row, originally hitting shelves in 2014. Before then, the only fall Oreos we had were those bogus ones with the orange creme. Now, we’ve got these beauties–Golden Oreo wafers with pumpkin spice flavored creme. Right off the bat, I can see that the creme looks almost exactly like pumpkin pie filling, and smells like it, too. I’m pretty optimistic about these.
The creme leads with a huge burst of pumpkin flavor. It’s sugary, of course, but the pumpkin is definitely there. There are no specific spices (such as cinnamon or nutmeg) listed in the ingredients, and that complexity is missing here. This creme is definitely true to the pumpkin, but it skimps on the spice.
The rich and buttery Golden Oreo cookie is sweet enough to complement the creme, but not so sweet that it clashes with the pumpkin flavor. It actually provides a really nice platform for the pumpkin creme to shine. If you really think about it, you can almost imagine it as the “pie crust” of the pumpkin pie.
Overall, Pumpkin Spice Oreos are a great Oreo flavor for fall (definitely more enjoyable than Candy Corn Oreos). Day 2 of (50) Days of Pumpkin was a success; we’re still going strong. Can’t wait to see what my next date with pumpkin brings!
