Review Of Oreo Ice Cream 1.2L

Oreo cookies have been a family favourite in homes worldwide since 1912. They’re delicious dipped into milk, so adding them to ice cream makes sense.

In Australia, Peter’s has the license to manufacture Oreo 1.2L tubs. This review looks at this frozen dessert to find out if it deserves a spot in your freezer.

Is Oreo Frozen Dessert any good?

A container of Oreo offers a frozen crème that’s creamy and smooth. There is a generous amount of Oreo cookie pieces scattered through the tub.

While this tub will appeal to Oreo Cookie fans, you may prefer the Woolworths or Indulge brands. They have a slightly smaller pack size, but the ice cream is better, and you’ll save money.

Tip: Check out my review of Milo Ice Cream if you like classic food brands that have been transformed into frozen treats.

What alternatives are there in supermarkets?

Woolworths Cookies & Cream 1L: A one-litre pack that offers excellent value for money. It has the same percentage of cookies, but milk and cream are the two main ingredients. It’s a more indulgent option. Review of Woolworths C&C>

Indulge Cookies & Cream 1L: Sold at Aldi supermarkets, this is another highly recommended option with nearly 100% Aussie ingredients. Review of Indulge C&C>

Monarc Silver Scoop Cookies & Cream 2L: A super cheap option that may appeal if price is the main factor. Review of Silver Scoop C&C>

Connoisseur Cookies & Cream 1L: This container is a little smaller and costs more. But it’s a superior product that uses 28% cream.

Bulla Creamy Classics Cookies & Cream 2L: A larger family pack with only 7% cookie content. Tasty ice cream that will appeal to anyone looking for better value. It’s best to buy this one on sale for half price. Review of Creamy Classics C&C>

Streets Blue Ribbon Cookies & Cream 2L: Blue Ribbon may appeal if you prefer less cookie crumb.

There are many brands selling cookies and cream in Australia.


The primary ingredients in this tub are reconstituted skim milk and sugar. Milk solids also add body to the frozen dessert, producing a softer texture that scoops easily.

  • Reconstituted skim milk makes up 58% of the container.
  • 15% of the tub is cookie pieces.

Ingredient list: Reconstituted Skim Milk (58%), Sugar, Vegetable Oil and or Cream, Wheat Flour, Milk Solids, Glucose Syrup, Cocoa Solids (0.9%), High Fructose Syrup, Vegetable Origin Emulsifiers (477, 471 (Soy), 322 (Soy)), Vegetable Gums (412, 410), Mineral Salts (500, 503), Salt, Corn Starch, Flavour (Contains Milk), Colour (160b), Antioxidant (319).

Milk fat

Milk fat plays a vital role in the texture and mouthfeel of ice cream. More of it results in a creamier, smoother texture associated with superior products.

There is no mention of milk fat percentage on the tub. It’s probably less than 10% as the front of the pack isn’t labelled ice cream.
