Oreo Thins

slim biscuits

We are very fond of Oreos, they always remind us of the days when our Sash was a little boy. He loved the original, old-style Oreos with passion. He used to twist the biscuit, eat the creme filling and then gobble up the dark cookies. I have been buying Oreos for many years, including mini-sized ones and even chocolate bars with Oreo crumbs.
Recently Oreo has launched a new lower-calorie version of their classic biscuit - Oreo Thins. They come in two flavours - Original and Chocolate Creme.

They are not meant to be twisted or dunked, and are marketed to more grown-up consumers.
This skinnier version of the classic cookie uses thinner wafers and less cream filling. The ratio of cookie-to-filling, however, has not been changed. Four new Oreo Thins contain 140 calories compared to 160 calories per three regular Oreos. Though the amount of calories is less, they are not a diet food or diet snack.
They certainly look more elegant and sophisticated.

For a truly luxurious hot chocolate, add one of the broken Oreo Thins to the whipped cream.

And the right way to eat Oreo Thins, according to Eddie, is to take a biscuit in each hand, bite from two biccies at the same time and compare.

Oreo Thins are available in leading supermarkets - Sainsbury's, Tesco and Morrisons.

I haven't been able to find them locally yet, but will keep an eye on them, as we all loved Oreo Thins.
Have you seen new Oreo Thins in the shops?

Disclosure: I received two packets of Oreo Thins for the purposes of testing and reviewing. All opinions are our own.
