SNACK OF THE WEEK ..... a new part of '7Days of Chocolate Reviews' which will feature any manner of snacking product I have been products munching on in the weekKcal 150 Fat 7.0g Fat(sats) 2.5g Carbs 21.0g (Per 2 cookies)

Today 'Snack of the Week' comes courtesy of my pals at American Soda (Website HERE) who ever so kindly sourced a pack of these Oreo Golden Double Stuff for me when I pleaded for them to get added to their site. These had been recommended to me by a number of people on Twitter after my review of the original Oreo Double Stuff - it was hardly like I need much encouragement, especially after reading Marvo's great review HERE.

In case you are a UK reader who hasn't come across these before, Oreo Golden come described as 'golden vanilla sandwich cookies with vanilla cream fillings'. As you can see from my photos these double stuf (why the silly spelling I don't know!) looked very attractive with the immense volume of vanilla cream very much catching the eye. If you will allow me to compare these to the original Double Stuff (See HERE), I will tell you there were elements about these that I both found better and inferior. What was worse? The golden cookies weren't bad tasting, but on balance I would say the chocolate biscuits of the originals have a bit more to them. What was better? I found the vanilla cream worked better with the golden biscuit and the vanilla flavours seemed enhanced and less sugary.

Overall these were a nice variation of Oreo, though I'm unsure they managed to surpass the originals in my eyes - the jury is still out on that one. One thing I do know is that fans of Custard Creme biscuits here in the UK will think they have died and gone to heaven. Get yourselves to American Soda before they sell out folks.
