Yes or No - Are the Most Oreos the Best Oreo Ever?
Updated: Apr 29
Is the Most Oreo too much Oreo even for an Oreo lover? I had to find out! I recently compared the Most Oreo with a Classic Oreo.
History of the Oreo Cookie
The Oreo cookie is over 100 years old! First produced in 1912, the Oreo cookie was developed to compete with a very popular cookie at the time, the Hydrox by Sunshine Bakers. The Oreo even copied the laurel wreath design on the chocolate wafer, perhaps leading to the now iconic name. As reported by Stella Parks at Serious Eats, the mountain laurel is oreodaphne.
Like its competitor, Oreos were black and white. Both creamy and crunchy, with chocolate and vanilla flavors. It wasn’t a hit right away, but the Oreo soon became more popular. When I was in kindergarten, we were served two Oreos at snack time. Thus began my lifelong love of this special sandwich cookie.
The Double Stuf Oreo was introduced in 1975, and now there are both a Thin and a Mega Stuf Oreo, opposite ends of the cream-filling spectrum. The Golden Oreo, another variation, was first sold in 2004. The cookie aisle is resplendent with types and flavors, many seasonal. My favorite is the Classic, with the Double Stuf a close second.
The Taste Test
The Most OREO Sandwich Cookies are the classic, original snack cookies I’ve always known and loved, but with cookies-n-creme flavor cream inside. Since cookies-n-creme is basically Oreo flavor, these cookies are over the top. Each cookie has extra layers of cream, too, making them extra sweet and creamy.
I asked a fan of "anything cookies-n-creme" to be the first tester. To my surprise, he was neutral about this limited edition, stating the taste was the same as a Double Stuf Oreo.
Then it was my turn.
My verdict - sweet and delicious, with just a little more cream with the cookie to make the bite delicious and crave-able. The overall taste was similar to the Mega Stuf. Maybe just a little sweeter. When I passed the package around at work, everyone liked them.
From the Most package and information from the official Oreo website, I made a comparison of the Most Oreo with other Oreo offerings.

It's not surprising that the Most Oreo has twice the calories of a Classic. Look how thick and luscious this looks:
Unfortunately, this was a limited edition and until the Most Oreo returns, I'll continue to enjoy Classic and Double Stuf Oreos.
