It's that time again for another Midweek-Mini review and today we have cause for celebration. What do we have to celebrate I hear you ask!? Well one of the world's most well known brand of cookies is celebrating their 100th birthday - Congratulations Oreo! That really great news is that Oreo are marking their landmark birthday with the introduction of these limited edition Birthday Cake Cookies. These cookies are currently available in the US and many of my fellow US blogging friends have been writing their own reviews in recent weeks - Marvo @ The ImpulsiveBuy, Jess @ FoodetteReviews, JunkFoodGuy and FatGuyFoodBlog.

Given how much I love Oreo cookies there was no way I was going to let our American friends be the only ones to get in on the celebrations so I got in contact with Oreo on Twitter and wollah a 297.0g pack was sent my way. Upon receiving the pack I knew these were going to be something rather special as soon as I opened up the seal. At this point the most glorious array of cake icing scents emerged - I genuinely can't describe how tempting these were. Disbelieving that they couldn't taste as good as they smelt I was to be further disproved. The proportion of outer chocolate cookie to inner creme was nigh on perfect and together they tasted sensational. Building on the traditional vanilla hinted flavours of the originals, these birthday cake cookies had additional flavour elements reminiscent of sprinkles and cake batter. Amazingly enough these actually tasted like cake - no gimmicks here!

Overall I can't recommend these enough if you are a fan of Oreo cookies. I've recently been trying a fair number of the new Oreo variants (more on that soon ;D) and I would genuinely rank these up there as one, if not THE, best of the lot I've tried. Admittedly these aren't going to be the easiest cookies to get hold, especially for us here in the UK. If you do get the opportunity to try these make sure you grab it with both hands. I can say with a great degree of confidence you wont regret it.
