“Most taste delicious but some taste like rotten zombie.” Two things: One, is “rotten zombie” redundant? A zombie, as portrayed in media, is the rotting flesh of a living being brought back to life. So “rotten” seems unnecessary. Two, everyone who’s anyone knows zombie tastes like chicken. (Spotted by Adam E at Sheetz.)

Baskin-Robbins Stranger Things Mind Flayer Mint Ice Cream recently popped up at Target, along with three other Stranger Things-branded pints. I bought them all, but, sadly, only one was a new flavor.

If only I hadn’t ignored the description on the pint like it was instructions for IKEA furniture. Then I would’ve realized Mind Flayer Mint was Baskin-Robbins’ regular ol’ mint chocolate chip ice cream in Stranger Things clothing.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Well, I have been fooled again within a month by a Baskin-Robbins branded product — Limited Edition Baskin-Robbins Mint Chocolate Chip Oreo Cookies.

Shame on me.

The snack features chocolate Oreo wafers with two layers of creme — chocolate and mint with chocolate chip bits in it. This is Oreo’s second cookie collaboration with Dunkin’ Brands, the first being 2017’s Dunkin’ Donuts Mocha Oreo Cookies. Of course, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen Baskin-Robbins and Oreo in the same product name. The iconic cookie has been an ingredient in 75% of Baskin-Robbins’ Flavors of the Month. Okay, that’s an exaggeration, but doesn’t it seem like it’s in three out of four flavors.

Twisting off a wafer reveals an image that looks like what I saw when I peeled back the lid of Mind Flayer Mint – a light green staring back at me with dark specks of chocolate.

And, this is where I got fooled a second time by a Baskin-Robbins-branded product. Even though there’s a layer of chocolate creme and there are chocolate chip bits in the mint creme, this cookie tastes like something that already exists — regular Mint Oreo. Sure, there might be some slight difference in the level of chocolate because of the other creme, but, bite after bite, all that comes to mind is a Mint Oreo. I mean, that isn’t bad, but I was hoping for a bit more.

Well, there might be a bit more. Is it my imagination, or is there an extra cooling sensation with these cookies? Perhaps to make it feel more like ice cream? I dunno. Maybe it’s my strong desire for these to be something more than a Mint Oreo in green cheetah print. Oh, speaking of textures, the chocolate chip bits add some when eating just the creme, but they’re not noticeable when eating a cookie whole.

Before limited edition flavors became the norm back in the early 2000s, Mint Oreo was one of my favorites. So it’s hard for me to knock Limited Edition Baskin-Robbins Mint Chocolate Chip Oreo hard for tasting like it. But I still feel a little disappointed this variety is like Baskin-Robbins’ Mind Flayer Mint Ice Cream in that it looks different on the outside, but doesn’t taste different than what already exists.

They’re back! To be honest, I thought they were still around. These are made by a new company, 1908 Candy Co., and come in resealable pouches instead of boxes. The 1908 represents the year the Ferrera Pan Candy Company, the original maker of these, was started. (Spotted by Josh G at Walgreens.)

I’m so glad I started drinking coffee years ago.

If I didn’t, I wouldn’t be experiencing the one-upscreamership between International Delight and the popular creamer brand from Nestle that sometimes has a hyphen in its name and sometimes doesn’t. Both do collaborations with other brands. Both do unique flavors that the other doesn’t have.

Who’s winning? I don’t care. I’ll fork over my hard-earned cash for whatever either brand is peddling. The latest from International Delight is the limited time only French Toast Swirl, which promises “swirls of maple and cinnamon flavor.”

I taste cinnamon. I taste maple. I taste cream. I taste…egg?

I mean, it’s not as if there’s the taste of scrambled eggs is in my coffee, but it’s kind of like an eggy bread flavor. That combined with strong cinnamon and maple does equal to something that tastes like French toast, and it’s potent when poured into a cup of coffee. This creamer is délicieux.

Yes, eggy flavor sounds weird and it might turn some of you off, but it’s what makes this creamer stand out. Without it, it would be more of a run-of-the-mill variety. Actually, the more I think about it, and the more I drink, I realize it also reminds me of bread pudding I’ve had.

But, as someone who has tried almost every big brand and store brand creamer I can get my hands on, this coffee additive’s flavor tastes similar to another one I’ve had in the past. But after doing some thinking while sipping on a mug of coffee lightened with a healthy dose of this creamer, I couldn’t pinpoint which creamer it tastes like.

I don’t know if it’s the caffeine in my French toast-flavored coffee that’s doing the talking, but International Delight’s French Toast Swirl Creamer is tre magnifique. I enjoyed it as much as the Reese’s one, which is a variety I’ve bought numerous times since its debut in 2017.

I don’t know if my taste buds are just tired from all the different chocolate-flavored creamers recently, but this one stands out among all the varieties that have come out with the past two years from International Delight and the creamer brand from Nestle that sometimes has a hyphen in its name and sometimes doesn’t.

DISCLOSURE: I received a free sample of the product. (Thanks, International Delight!) Doing so did not influence my review in any way. Although, I can understand why you might think so with a 9 out of 10 rating. But I assure you it did not.
