It seems impossible to capture the flavor of a crisp, fresh-from-the-fountain Cherry Cola in an Oreo, but the cookie masters have done it. The filling inside the chocolate cookie is half vanilla and half cherry, and the red portion is studded with popping candy (just like the Firework Oreos from a while back).
Feeling the candy "pop" on your tongue mimics the sensation of drinking a carbonated soda, and the spot-on flavor took me back to the days of sipping a Cherry Cola slushie from the gas station.
"The pop rocks are a subtle and surprising touch that adds to the overall soda effect," another POPSUGAR staffer noted. The cherry scent is prominent when you open the package, but the cookies don't taste nearly as artificial as they smell. We wouldn't be tempted to eat a whole sleeve of these (they're quite rich), but a polishing off a few hits the spot.
