When's the last time you had an Oreo? This news might change that timeline a bit for ya.
Five new Oreo flavors were recently announced at the Sweets and Snacks Expo in Chicago. First of all, that sounds like a cool event I'd like to be invited to. Okay, moving on to the new flavors.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie, Pistachio Thins, Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake, Rocky Road, and Peppermint Bark.
Usually when Oreo reveals new flavors I have mixed emotions. And this time is no different, EXCEPT my mixed emotions are not flavor related. ALL OF THESE SOUND AMAZING AND I AM VERY EXCITED.
Here's the thing, only Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie and Pistachio Thins are here to stay. The other flavors are limited releases.
Here's the other thing - they're not coming out at the same time. Apparently, Strawberry Shortcake and Rocky Road Trip will be released this month (June) but we'll have to for the holidays for Peppermint Bark.
Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake won’t be the only ice cream Oreo to debut in 2018, as Rocky Road Trip Oreos also arrive later this summer. I really like the punny name, as I make frequent road trips to and from the store to buy Oreos all summer long. The cookies will have a rocky road flavored creme with marshmallow bits and soy nut inclusions. Long overdue! 👏🏼
Greetings from the @sweets_and_snacks_expo! I have not stopped shoving my face with new products for the past five hours. And although they didn’t have samples, the Oreo I’m most excited about this year is Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake arriving later this summer. A friendly woman at the booth asked me if I’ve ever tried Golden Oreos. Lady... ✋🏼
At the tail end of the year, Nabisco will refresh their old Peppermint Oreos with a new Peppermint Bark Oreo, featuring crunchy sugar crystals in the creme. It remains to be seen if the creme will be identical, but I’ve consulted with Santa’s big fat ass and we both agree this same concept with a white fudge coating a la White Fudge Oreos would have been the holiest, jolliest choice.
