A few weeks ago dedicated Chocolate Mission reader Justin was kind enough to send me a pack of the original Oreo Cakesters to review...they scored a very reasonable 7.4 Chocolate Mission rating. For that reason when the opportunity arose for me to get my hands on a pack of the 'Chocolate Creme' variant I wasnt going to turn it down.
Much the same as the original variant these came in a pack of two cakes (57g), for reasons I will go into they turned out to feel like a more substantial product. As you can see above the cakes looked identical to the originals though with a darker coloured creme filling - very prtty to look at (..but even better to eat lol!). Aromawise the cakes lacked any smell worth mentioning...again a slightly sweet smell but nothing massivelly appealing.
The cake elements still retained a nice firm brownie type texture...slightly moist but firm and substantial to the bite. The cake pieces had a nice chocolaty taste and were definately still my favourite part of the cakesters - scrumptious.
So...the defining element of this variety the chocolate creme...how did it fare? Better than the original creme fillling in my opinion. Though still the same in proportion the creme filling had a thicker denser texture and with this a stronger flavour. The original Cakesters creme had a very sweet slightly milky flavour, this variant was creamier but slightly less sweet and had an cocoa edge to its taste.
Overall if I was offered a pack of these or a Kinder Slice I honestly dont know which I would pick (both probably haha!). These are on a par with the Kinder Slice but marginally better tasting than the original Cakesters! This is solely due to the creme filling flavour being slightly more distinguished making for a marginally more satisfying product. Again these come highly recommended by myself - an absolutely perfect snack enjoyed with a cool glass of milk.
