Tiramisu Oreo Thins by Nabisco

20160410-DSC06255

Crispy seems to be a pre­requis­ite for most of my snacks lately. These Tiramisu Oreo Thins by Nabisco, which came out recently in Australia, dif­fer from ordin­ary Oreos by hav­ing thin­ner chocol­ate wafers (about 1.5 – 2mm thick) sand­wich­ing a tiram­isu fla­voured creme filling.

The thin­ness of these Oreo Thins, though, means they’re not your clas­sic twist and dunk kind. Rather, the cook­ies are wafer thin and extra crispy, which is the only thing needed to make the slightly salty chocol­ate cook­ie with the sweet cream filling of an ordin­ary Oreos even tasti­er. Indeed, I found myself reach­ing back for anoth­er and anoth­er! They must have accoun­ted for this, though, as the box is divided into two bags, each filled with air to cush­ion their crispy cargo.

Texture aside, these Oreo Thins smell strongly of tiram­isu. The tiram­isu fla­vour is sweet and intense in the first few bites. Yet it’s per­fect as the salt­i­ness of the bis­cuit emerges and rounds out the ini­tial sweet­ness with a more chocol­atey fin­ish. While I’m quite fond of the thin­ness of these bis­cuits, and might even prefer them, the vanilla creme of the ori­gin­al is my favourite.

This box of Tiramisu Oreo Thins by Nabisco con­tained 2 packs each con­tain­ing 10 pieces. It was pro­duced in Australia and pur­chased in Sydney, Australia in 2016.
