Golden Oreo Cakesters

Looks: The “cake” portion of these cake and sugar sandwiches doesn’t have the slightly browned and cracked cake exterior as the cakes on the box, and the white filling could use a kick in the pants. Also, no clouds in sight. 4 out of 5

Taste: Do you want a snack that is simultaneously so dry that your tongue becomes a useless slab of flesh, so sweet that your teeth cry out in pain, but yet delicious enough that you keep shoving them into your mouth? Have a Golden Oreo Cakester! (By the way, they don’t taste anything like oreos.) 3 out of 5

Weight Watchers Oatmeal and Raisin Cookie

Today, we have our first reader submission. Thanks Anne for sending in the photo and description below!

Weight Watchers Oatmeal and Raisin Cookie

“The other Weight Watcher snack products closely match the picture, so I was surprised to see such a discrepancy. The package does say that the picture is enlarged to show texture, but there isn’t much texture to begin with, nor were any of the cookies chock full of raisins either. As a cookie lover, I might as well just spring for the bad fatty oatmeal cookies or make my own with raisins a-plenty, as this package of 9 cookies was $3.49 Canadian. A poor value.”

Looks: If half of your product name is “raisin,” half of your product better be raisins. 3 out of 5
