Last night, while dinner was cooking in the oven, my wife remembered that we were all out of diapers and milk. So, while I cooked, she ran up the street to Walgreen’s to pick those things up.
While there, she came across Oreo brownies. They looked different and she figured we needed something for dessert anyway so she picked up one for each of us.
Considering she did spend about $1 each, I do feel she wasted her money.
In all fairness to her, the description on the packaging did make the brownies seem somewhat interesting. Basically, they were decent sized brownies (about the size I would usually cut from a pan of them) that had pieces of Oreo cookies mixed inside them. Unfortunately, the brownies didn’t even come close to matching our expectations.
Our oldest daughter had her brownie first and, even though I expected her to be able to eat at least half of the brownie (and really wouldn’t have been surprised if she ate the whole thing); she ended up only eating a couple bites of it and wrapping the rest up for later.
This seemed unusual and, at first, I thought maybe she wasn’t feeling that well or was ready to go to bed. However, I tried my brownie and could see exactly why she didn’t finish it.
First of all, these brownies are way too dry tasting. I felt extremely thirsty after every bite and, because of this, was unable to finish mine either. As my wife described it when she had her brownie (and the same reaction my daughter and I did), there were pieces of Oreo inside. But, it would have been much, much better if the brownie itself had some cream filling because it would have helped with the dryness.
I also thought the brownie had a bit of an unusual taste to it; and I don’t mean that in a good way. It tasted like chocolate. But, it tasted like cheaply made chocolate; the kind that seems to have been made with too little sugar. One thing was certain; it definitely did not taste anything like Oreo cookies.
As a result of all of what I mentioned, we now have three opened Oreo brownies in our house (in hindsight, we probably should have just shared one and returned the other two). Again, I was extremely disappointed by that and do feel like we wasted our money on these. I definitely would not buy this product again.
