(Newser) – In a creation the Los Angeles Times likens to "a chicken stuffed with eggs," Oreo is set to unveil a cookie dough-flavored cookie as one of two new versions of its classic cookie. The other new flavor is Marshmallow Crispy, which the New York Daily News says is "reminiscent of a Rice Krispie Treat, with vanilla-flavored sandwich cookies and sweet cream spotted with crisped rice."

So how do they measure up against the original? Staffers at Time put them to the test and decided both were tasty, though the classic is tough to beat. The Cookie Dough flavor didn't taste that much like cookie dough, they found, with some samplers saying the cookie had hints of coffee or caramel, and one dubbing it the "Frappuccino Oreo." The Marshmallow Crispy, meanwhile, had a few haters but was a hit with others who found it really did taste like a Rice Krispie Treat. Time reports that the flavors debut Feb. 3 and will be on sale for six to eight weeks.
