Baskin Robbins Mint Chocolate Chip Oreo

REVIEW: Nabisco Baskin Robbins Mint Chocolate Chip Oreo

;new advadsCfpAd( 17665 );

Baskin Robbins has long touted 31 flavors, but Oreo? I think they’re at 3,100.

New flavor #3101 is a Baskin Robbins Mint Chocolate Chip Oreo.

These branded partnership Oreos are often the most fun:

  • Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake Oreo because of the strawberry bits.
  • Peeps Oreos because of their aesthetic appeal.
  • Reese’s Oreos because they taste like a friggin’ Reese’s.
  • Swedish Fish Oreos because of how fun they were to throw violently into the garbage can.

Baskin Robbin’s Mint Chocolate Chip Oreos have chocolate chips studded in both mint AND chocolate cremes, adding something much more playful than the regular Mint Oreos.

Almost exactly two years after Dunkin’ dropped Dunkin’ Donuts Mocha Oreos, their tag team partner Baskin Robbins is drinking the Oreo Kool Aid.

Side bar: the Fruit Punch Oreos were anything but kool.

The smell of the Oreos is certainly like mint chocolate chip ice cream, though that’s pretty much what any Grasshopper type cookie is going to smell like.

The good: they’re definitely better than the regular Mint Oreos. The creme is sweeter and smoother, as the chocolate creme helps cut it to a less “harsh” mint. You definitely get a little cooling sensation that a proper mint  flavoring offers, and this is especially helpful for an ice cream flavored cookie.

The bad: they’re nowhere near as good as the Fudge Covered Mint Oreos that just released a month ago.

Their biggest failing is the ineffectiveness of the chocolate chips. It says right there in the ingredient list that these use semisweet chocolate chips, which you can kind of see in the mint portion of the creme. The problem is you can’t taste them at all. In fact you can’t even feel them; they’re completely indistinguishable from the crumbly cocoa wafers as you chow down.

The obvious: Baskin Robbins Mint Chocolate Chip Oreos still taste quite good. They clearly took some existing parts from the Mint Oreo and the Chocolate Creme Oreos, added some pretty weak chocolate “chips”, and relying on a strong licensing agreement with Baskin Robbins to create a sales surge.

It’s going to work, but these Oreos are lacking the fun factor of previous partnerships.

Honestly had more way more fun throwing those shitty Swedish Fish Oreos off my rooftop than I did eating these.
