It’s been a busy year for Oreo: Red Velvet and S’Mores flavors debuted, with much speculation of what’s coming next.

Well, the wait is over, because as of tomorrow, there’s a brand new version hitting shelves: Oreo Thins.

These new and improved cookie sandwiches are identical to their bulkier older brother, but they’ve been on a strict workout plan to lose a whopping 7 calories and 4 millimeters in thickness.

Here’s how these skinnier snacks stack up to the original:

Size

You can twist the Oreo Thin, but three out of every four cracked when we tried – unlike the original, which as we all know, usually separates with ease.

Dunkability

Dunk away to your heart’s content, but the Oreo Thin will need a little more time than the original to saturate with milk. The original softens at 19 seconds, while the Oreo Thin takes 37 seconds to soak.

Oreo Thins come in three flavors: chocolate, graham and mint.

Throwing journalistic objectivity out the window, this writer much prefers the Oreo Thins. They’re crispier and more chocolaty because of a higher cookie to cream ratio. One ABC News editor noted, though, that they’re a lot more fragile than the original, and many in the package were already broken upon arrival.

Oreo Thins come in original, golden and mint flavors and are a permanent addition to the Oreo roster.
