Cinnamon Bun Oreos

Cinnamon Bun Oreos

Introducing The Cinnamon Bun Oreo, the classic, irresistible sweet-baked dessert seen through the eyes of Oreo. Featuring cinnamon-spiced frosting sandwiched between two golden cinnamon wafers.
Growing up, I never was really one for Oreos. I liked them, but they were not my 'go-to' cookie. Those would have been Nilla wafers.

But Mama Melissa and I are SUCKERS for anything cinnamon-flavored. Cinnamon coffee, Cinnamon creamer, Cinnamon cereals... if it has cinnamon in it, we're all over it.

So, when Oreo announced they were making Cinnamon Bun Oreos, I was intrigued. Would they do cinnamon buns justice, or would they be one of the more disgusting flavors? I was determined to find out.

After sending some money with Mama Melissa's mother to scour the stores in Auburn and coming up empty handed, I caved and bought a 2-pack from eBay. (Ironically, Mama Melissa's mother found them in the Auburn Wal-mart a few days after they arrived)

On first look, these look like any of the vanilla Oreo varieties, such as Golden Oreos or Birthday Cake Oreos. However, on closer inspection, I could see the cinnamon specks in the creme and the cookies have a slightly darker coloring than the normal Golden cookies.

These tasted exactly like a cinnamon bun in cookie form. The creme is reminiscent or the icing on the buns, while the cookies taste like the dough of the bun.

Opening the package was extremely east, even for someone with a disability. The top of the package peels back, exposing the cookies. This also makes it easier to put the cookies away, because the package reseals itself.

The only thing disabled people may have trouble with is actually eating the cookies. These have more of a crunch to them than other Oreo varieties I have tried (Regular, Peanut Butter, Mint, Pumpkin Spice). I'd say the crunch is on the same level of the Pumpkin Spice Oreos. So, there may be some chewing issues, but if you can chew crunchy veggies or other crunchy foods, you'll be fine.

This is available from most major retailers for $2.99 and higher. You can also find them on eBay or Amazon.

One of the better flavors of Oreos produced.


  1. I'm glad they taste like a cinnamon bun, I'll have to see if I can find these at my local store. They would be great with a cup of coffee.

    1. Seems like they are exclusive to 'big box' stores, like Walmart or Target. A Youtube personality I watch did a taste test of these on his channel, and he found them at Target in California. Our 'bigger' grocery chains (Tops Markets and Wegmans) did not carry them when Mama Melissa's mom went to them.
