We write about Oreos a lot here. Like, a lot a lot. But can you blame us? The classic cookie has been around longer than any of us have (since 1912!), and there are so many Oreo recipes and desserts out there that frankly, we’re surprised that we as a society haven’t caused a nationwide shortage. There are few things in the world more simple and versatile as an Oreo cookie and milk (yes, that includes all of the 85-plus flavors in the brand’s history), and it’s safe to say we’re just a little bit obsessed. Case in point, this giant Oreo cake, these Oreo truffles, this Oreo popcorn, and this Oreo cookie skillet. You get the idea.
It was only a matter of time before we turned around and said, “Have we ever tried them all in one sitting?” We hadn’t. So we did.
Of course, there were hiccups. Although so many Oreo flavors have emerged over the course of the cookie brand’s 110-year lifespan, some flavors are hard to find on shelves. Some seem to be discontinued. Others are only available overseas. Green tea Oreos, for instance, are only available in Japan. (But whyyyy?) That said, our editors are nothing if not intrepid, tracking down a whopping 30 Oreo varieties for an in-depth taste test.
“Nope. This tastes like a birthday cake vomiting.” So, uh. Not our fav.
A prettttty ideal snack for all those who like chocolate, mini things, and feeling vaguely ill after putting down an inevitable bag’s worth of this stuff.
The comparisons to a Thin Mint were inevitable, yet these drew less of a parallel than their larger counterpart (more on that cookie later). People enjoyed this cookie’s fresh crunch, but wanted even more mint flavor.
Again, here is where creme-to-cookie ratio became a subject of debate. Are the Thins Bites just too much cookie for too little creme? All signs point to yes. Might we suggest a Double Stuf Oreos Thins Bites?
“They’re fine,” was the overall feeling here. Good. Fine!
Released as part of the mystery flavor Oreo contest, this cookie featured a churro-flavored creme. However, it didn’t knock anyone’s socks off.
Infinitely less popular than the classic Oreo, even though it was one of the most straightforward flavors we tried. “It’s just kind of bland,” one tester noted.
“More peanut butter flavor,” they cried. “More! Please!”
These would make great snacks if frozen, the crowd agreed. As room temperature bites, they were slightly less fun.
Despite a few enthusiasts, the consensus was that the white fudge was too overpowering and negated any solid crunch the bites may have had.
The staff found themselves divided at this pivotal cookie point. About half of Delish felt the cookie was artificial nonsense that needed more cream cheese oomph. The rest were delighted by its Dunkaroo-like smell and sweet, sweet flavor.
Another few mentions of the word “perfect” here, but there were a few people who felt the classic Thin was a bit too dry.
I present to you without further context the absolute best note from this entire test: “Like a thicker Thin Mint. A… Chunk Mint?”
An “A+” from all the Nutterbutter fans in the house.
We all remain a little unclear as to what spring is (Yellow #5??), but we were not mad about it. It’s just a really yummy cookie with a bit of a neon streak.
This one was a big hit with those of our testers who claimed not to have much of a sweet tooth (who are these people). While some said they couldn’t tell that it was dark chocolate, they appreciated the cookie’s subtle sweetness.
The Gingerbread Oreo with creme and crunchy sugar crystals was tasty enough to make Santa’s nice list.
People loved the creme-to-cookie ratio here. Magic!
This fudge-covered Oreo was immensely popular. It’s a “luxurious” cookie with with an alarming amount of chocolate. One taster’s suggestion? “LOVE. Although I wish it was half vanilla-dipped and half chocolate-dipped.”
A delightful addition to the permanent flavor fam. Less artificial tasting than the birthday cake and red velvet varieties.
Of all the flavors that Oreo has gifted us, this one is all about the texture. The smooth caramel creme with coconut flakes is a combo to die for.
So, uh, if autumn had a taste, this definitely would be it. And we’re completely here for it.
Hard to say when a lot of creme becomes too much creme, but the overwhelming consensus was more creme = better cookie.
A major favorite! All comments were in the “I can’t BELIEVE how much I loved this one” realm. Seriously, there were notes about how much Italian grandmothers (who are famously pistachio-loving) would adore them and pining over all the pistachio ice cream to come this summer.
To be honest, there’s not much that Lady Gaga does that we don’t approve of, and these brightly colored Oreos are no exception. This limited-edition cookie was actually a Golden Oreo in disguise, but we couldn’t help but be tickled by the color.
The classic Golden Oreo is a throwback to a better, simpler time. It’s a delicious alternative to the classic chocolate cookie, and in some people’s opinions, an even better everyday option.
This Oreo with by far the most feedback. The general consensus was that the Most Stuf cookie is a six-year-old’s dream come true, a glorious nostalgic, creme-filled bite. There was a party pooper or two who said things like “too much stuf,” but whatever.
“A staple,” “a classic,” “a sublime cookie,” they proclaimed. A caveat, though: needs milk for ultimate perfection.
Believe it or not, this pack of Lemon Oreos was the first to go in its entirety. There was not a single piece of criticism of the flavor—people delighted in these!
