Not a Great Idea

Oreos' new flavor. Maple. So sweet a single whiff will give your nose cavities.

    I don't think I would like maple Oreos, but I do wish they would bring back Maple Junket.

    Maple must be the next big thing...

    Maple is one of my favorite flavor profiles in the sweets category.  I think I'd pick it over chocolate.  That said, knowing the past work of the fine folks at Nabisco, they've probably made it cloyingly sweet.  Instead of "Not a Great Idea", a more appropriate title might be "Not Great Execution of a Potentially Great Idea".
     
    A relevant side note; with the impending fall season, you'll start to see Aldi's version of a Maple Sandwich Cookie showing up on their shelves.  I enjoy them quite a bit, and you may find them less sweet than the Oreo rendition.

    I like maple in some things, but it's often too overdone and the flavour is too artificially maple. I had some of this last week and it was really good! Just enough maple to to do it right and nothing overwhelming.

    Personally, I like maple when it's used in a more savory application...

    I like maple when it's from a syrup bottle, or when it's candy.

    I'm addicted to those. I love that Red Velvet flavor. I always get the Family Size package.

    I like maple when it's burning in a smoker and making pork really yummy.

    Indeed. 
    I like bites of sausage, pancake, and maple syrup.
    But ...
    I wouldn't like it in any other than a self-composed form, e.g., a cookie, candy bar, or ice cream.
    Further, the "McGriddle" is vile.

    And that could be an old pic from who knows when. Lots of manufacturers are reformulating their product to remove things like artificial flavors.  Always go with what's on the website.

    The NEW Oreos maple flavored cookies state that they are artificially flavored.

    I believe Aldi's Maple Cookies are a private label version of Dare's product.  The cookie itself is similar, and the flavor, to my taste anyway, is a match.
