Where can you find the new Gluten-Free OREO cookies?
You can find them nationally starting NOW! Readers have had success finding them in Walmarts across the US, especially in the east coast. Nationwide rollout is starting up, so stay tuned to your favorite stores for GF Oreo cookies to be popping up near you!
They currently retail for $3.67 for a 13.29 oz. package (regular).
What do the new Gluten-Free OREO cookies taste like?
I know it sounds strange, but…they taste like Oreos! That’s right, coming from Non-GFBF, they taste like the original. I think they are slightly (only slightly) more grainier – and honestly saltier – than I remember.
What are the ingredients of the Gluten-Free OREO?
The ingredients for the regular gluten-free OREO are: sugar, white rice flour, tapioca starch, palm oil, canola oil, whole oat flour, cornstarch, cocoa, invert sugar, soy lecithin, baking soda, salt, xanthan gum, chocolate, artificial flavor.
The gluten-free OREO products are certified by the Gluten Intolerance Group GFCO and are tested for under 10ppm of gluten.
How does the Gluten-Free OREO compare to other gluten-free sandwich cookies?
I’ve been preparing for this moment all of my life – I’m a sandwich cookie fanatic! Anything cookies and creme, I’m into. So, I’ve been patiently waiting for my sample gluten-free OREO cookies to arrive via mail. I did a comparison between the regular OREO (did you know they also make a DOUBLE STUFF?!?!?!) and chocolate sandwich cookies from Glutino and Kinnikinnick – the two most popular brands that are easily accessible on store shelves. Both competitor brands are also certified gluten-free (Glutino is certified GFCO and Kinnikinnick is certified by the Beyond Celiac certification program).
How do they compare Glutino Sandwich Cookies?
The Glutino Chocolate Vanilla Creme Sandwich Cookies are currently my go-to sandwich cookies for a gluten-free OREO substitution. However, as you can see on their review page, consumer complaints have been high over the new recipe of the cookie. The texture isn’t perfect – they’re thick and sturdy (some call that too crunchy or hard), but I’ve been happily purchasing them – as they were the only easy-to-find substitute for OREO-like cookies on gluten-free shelves. They’re easy to find, pretty affordable, and I think taste the most like OREO sandwich cookies apart from actual OREOs. Also, I LOVE their vanilla sandwich cookie version – so I won’t stop buying those varieties for something different.
Glutino Chocolate Vanilla Creme Sandwich Cookies Cost: $3.72 for 10.5 oz. package
Glutino Chocolate Vanilla Creme Sandwich Cookies Ingredients: Tapioca flour, rice flour, sugar, palm oil, cocoa, tapioca syrup, water, cassava flour, cocoa, potato flour, soy lecithin, natural vanilla flavor, salt, sodium bicarbonate, xanthan gum. Contains soy, may contain milk, eggs, peanuts and tree nuts.
How do they compare to Kinnikinnick KinniToos Sandwich Cookies
Unfortunately, these sandwich cookies ranked the lowest of the three sandwich cookies we tested. They are very sugar-y and have more of a cake-like taste (per non-GFBF), more crumbly and sand-y, and were the least like Oreo cookies. While I definitely don’t mind buying them if I’m in need of a cookie fix, the price and taste aren’t worth it – compared to the new GF Oreos (unless you cannot tolerate ingredients in the other products).
Kinninnick KinniToos Cost: $5.15 for 8 oz. package
Kinninnick KinniToos Ingredients: sugars, non-hydrogenated shortening, pea starch, potato starch, white rice flour, cocoa powder, tapioca starch, water, pea protein, salt, natural flavor, pea fiber, sunflower lecithin, inulin, sodium bicarbonate, modified cellulose. May contain eggs
Are Gluten-Free OREO Cookies Worth Buying?
Absolutely! Unless, of course, you’re part of the small percentage of those with celiac disease who cannot tolerate oats of any kind – as these contain oat flour, and those who cannot tolerate soy. But if you’re looking for a gluten-free sandwich cookie worth your time – they have FINALLY ARRIVED!
Please note that I received samples of the new GF OREO cookies as a member of the press, but purchased the other cookies to do a side-by-side comparison of all of the gluten-free sandwich cookies on the market. Receiving free product has not swayed my review of these cookies – as I take cookies very seriously.
