Two years ago, cookie dough flavored Oreos hit the market, with standard chcoolatey Oreo wafers and cookie dough flavored creme. The thing is, both of these cookie flavors have names that avoid one important word: chocolate. That’s because the FDA has specific rules for what can legally be called “chocolate,” and the choco-nuggets in these cookies don’t fit the definition. [More]
Just about any dessert-themed flavor is now plausible when it comes to novelty Oreo flavors and other stunt food, and it’s difficult to surprise us. Yet we were sort of surprised at one of the new flavors that Nabisco plans to release in June, since it’s sort of a type of cereal, and sort of not. [More]
The junk food industry really needs to get its message straight. Is strawberry shortcake a flavor for Valentine’s Day, or for summer? Nabisco has made its argument, with strawberry shortcake flavored Oreos coming out soon, probably for summer. We checked with Oreo-maker Mondelēz, and will let you know if we get any confirmed information. (Instagram via The Impulsive Buy)
If you love frosting-laden cinnamon sweets and Oreos, the time is at hand: news about the next exotic Oreos flavor is out, and the lucky theme food is…cinnamon buns! The package promises cinnamon cookies with “cinnamon bun flavored creme.” That’s better than icing-flavored creme, which would just be… really solid icing. [More]
It’s important to us to keep our readers updated about the latest and most important news in the world of novelty Oreos. We’ve learned that Lemon Twist Oreos have returned to shelves, which are not to be confused with lemon Oreos. Lemon Oreos, which are still available, are on a vanilla cookie, and Lemon Twist Oreos are on a chocolate cookie. [More]
Ready for another exotic Oreo flavor? It’s possible that the world was never really ready for watermelon or Oreo-flavored Oreos, and that didn’t stop Nabisco from inflicting them on the world. We are intrigued with this image of a S’More Oreo cookie, featuring two-colored chocolate and marshmallow “creme” sandwiched between graham-flavored cookies.
When eating Oreos (of any flavor) have you ever said, “this is great, but I wish it were twirlier, and also warm?” No. You probably haven’t. Apparently someone at convenience store snack provider J&J Snack Foods did, though, and the company teamed up with Oreo-maker Mondelez International to sell Oreo-flavored churros. Churreos? [More]
Red velvet, a type of cake flavored with chocolate and red food coloring, is very popular for some reason. With Oreo introducing novelty flavors for what seems like every holiday and season, the idea of red velvet cookies for Valentine’s Day isn’t completely unreasonable. Yet some college students confessed to creating the product as a marketing class assignment. Was that confession simply meant to throw dessert detectives off the trail? [More]
We can’t believe we didn’t see the inevitability of this when Oreo introduced its Target-exclusive Caramel Apple-flavored cookies back in August, but someone has realized the obvious opportunity to combine the cookie and its inspiration into one ugly-ass snack. [More]
We had plenty of unofficial evidence and off-the-record confirmation of the existence of pumpkin spice Oreos, but couldn’t be definitively, publicly sure that they were official and real. Yes, the artificial flavor wizards over at Nabisco have given us Oreos flavored like limeade and cookies and creme Oreos, and everything else in the world already comes in pumpkin spice flavor, it’s not surprising. However, the news is official now. [Oreo Twitter]
While Nabisco itself has been working hard to create strange permutations of the brand, outside researchers are also pushing the boundaries of Oreo Science. First came the high school students who calculated that Double Stuf Oreos only contain 1.86 times as much Stuf as regular Oreos. Now the frosting scientists at the Onion’s A.V. Club have conducted their own experiment, wondering: what happens if you try to multiply the filling in one cookie times ten?
