We Tried Oreo’s New Line of Chocolate Candy Bars
Like an Oreo dipped in chocolate, but better.
There’s been no shortage of crazy flavors to emerge from The Oreo Wonder Vault (yes, that’s a real thing), from Swedish Fish to Root Beer Float. But for the first time ever in the U.S., Oreo has released two chocolate candy bars—and they’re just as tasty as you’d expect.
The candy bars, one of which rolls out in limited quantities nationwide Monday, Nov. 14, are made in partnership with European chocolate brand Milka (both Oreo and Milka are owned by Mondalez International). If you enjoy the cookie part of an Oreo more so than the crème inside, go for the Milka Oreo Big Crunch Bar ($5), which is basically an inside-out Oreo (with a thick layer of cookie) dipped in smooth milk chocolate. If you're the person who licks the crème out of the Oreo's center, you'll enjoy the Milka Oreo Chocolate Candy Bar ($1-2, depending on size), which is made almost entirely out of Oreo's signature vanilla crème filling (with a few bits of cookie) coated in milk chocolate.
The Big Crunch Bar isn't messing around—it weighs in at 10.5 oz and serves seven, so plan on purchasing it with friends in tow. It rolls out today, and will be in full distribution by January 2017. The Oreo Chocolate Candy Bar, which will debut in January 2017, comes in three sizes: 1.4 oz., 2.88 oz., and 3.52 oz—so you can keep that one for yourself.
