Birthday Party Oreo Cookies

A bit late to the game, primarily as this is the first time I have seen them, however we have finally got there and it’s time to try the new Birthday Party Oreo. To be fair the British Oreo track record isn’t that great so my expectations are pretty low. The Choc’o Brownie for me was a complete waste of time and let’s not forget about the abysmal excuse that was the Peanut Butter version.  Currently being sold in Asda, Ocado and Sainsbury’s, I found mine in the latter and were on offer for 75p.

Dona Rita are a completely new brand to me as is Pão de Queijo, but if something promises to be a cheesy delight then I am all in.  Traditionally known as Pão de Queijo, these balls are made using the freshest of ingredients including cassava flour and cheese, and is a staple snack at most cafes, restaurants and dinner parties across Brazil. Thanks to this family run business, who have perfected their secret recipe, we can now bake these cheesy balls…
