Gaga released her newest album, “Chromatica,” in May. On Thursday, she and Oreo teamed up to officially release a limited-edition pack of cookies to go with it.
While smaller packs of the cookies have been available in certain retail stores across the US since early January, the larger 12-ounce pack officially dropped on Thursday (though, some particularly dedicated fans spotted them in stores earlier).
Oreo also launched a virtual scavenger hunt for fans who want to win an even-more-exclusive package signed by Gaga herself.
“This collab is inspired by the world of ‘Chromatica,’ where kindness rules all things,” Lady Gaga said in a press release about the new Oreos. “I love these pink cookies with green creme, and hope they brighten your day as much as they do mine!”
Gaga’s fans were so hyped about the Oreo collaboration, they have already put full-sized packages on the resale site eBay, where they’re listed for as much as $US30. (The suggested retail price for a full-sized package is $US3.99.)
As I was unable to find the cookies in a store, Oreo provided Insider with a 12-ounce package for review. Once the cookies were finally in hand, I put on my only pink top, turned “Chromatica” up to loud, and ate the cookies for breakfast.
Just like the over-the-top performer herself, the new cookies come in a statement-making metallic-pink wrapping that gives snackers a peek at what’s underneath, showing off the pink and green cookies that are inside.
After tasting them, I found that, much like the album’s track No. 14, “Sine From Above,” the cookie is punchy and bright in some places, but soft and sweet in others.
As advertised, this homage-to-Gaga is simply a Golden Oreo dyed pink and green, stamped with three different varieties of Chromatica-themed imagery.
But having previously tried and ranked 26 more mainstream Oreo flavours, I think the “Chromatica” cookie’s flavours are actually more like the Golden Double Stuf than the original Golden cookie.
In my opinion, Oreo’s single-Stuf Golden cookie is overly sweet without actually having any distinct flavour at all, while the Double Stuf version of the same flavour is more subdued and pleasantly plain.
This pink cookie was plain in flavour as well, and crunchy in texture, which perfectly contrasted the sweet and extra-soft green creme inside. In terms of the amount of creme, it was somewhere between regular and Double Stuf â€” the extra helping of creme is a trait that I found is common in limited-edition flavours.
When I took a bite of the cookie as a whole sandwich, the three layers smushed together and the creme came oozing out the sides. Of course, it paired wonderfully with a glass of cold milk and held its shape after being dunked.
If you’re a fan of Lady Gaga and can find a pack of these cookies in your local store, it’s worth tossing them in your cart (or placing them gently so they don’t crumble!) and having a “Chromatica” dance party once you get home. That’s my weekend plan, at least!
