Candy Corn Oreos


Have you heard about the Candy Corn Oreo cookies? We hadn’t a clue about them until yesterday, when we started seeing blog posts and news stories. There have been taste tests galore, although most stories begin with a disclaimer about candy corn as a food item in general, in recognition of its ability to polarize people into pro and no- candy corn.

From Serious Eats: I’m a proud member of the pro-candy corn underground, and even if I accept that the stuff is objectively terrible, I just can’t stop eating it. So candy corn haters, this is not the review for you.

Today show did a little test: Like the iconic candies that inspired them, these Oreos got mixed reviews.“What you can’t see is how these smell,” said Savannah, who also concluded that they were “not that bad.” Natalie passed on them entirely, but only because she’s not a fan of candy corn to begin with. Al was a little more direct, pronouncing them, “Just wrong.”

Huffington Post:  Although these Oreos look like candy corn and smell like candy corn, they don’t really taste like candy corn. That doesn’t mean they’re bad, though. A die-hard candy corn lover might be disappointed, but your average Halloween party-goer will love these cookies. And judging from the already half-empty Target shelf I got these from, the Candy Corn Oreos are going to sell.


From reading all the stories and reviews it seems perhaps the biggest issue is the scent…er, the Eau de Candy Corn (ewww) smell that permeates the room after opening the package. We shall have to investigate and report back to you. In the interest of science.

Happy Eating
