Forget about those weird watermelon Oreos from August. Seriously. Because in just a few short weeks we'll all be able to dig into a bag of cookie dough-flavored Oreo cookies.
And if a cookie dough-flavored cookie doesn't sound damn delicious to you, then what the hell are you doing eating a cookie in the first place?
The two newest flavors of Oreo cookies were first spotted by The Impulsive Buy on January 21 and 22, reportedly at Dollar General. Time Magazine is reporting that both products will be available on February 3 and for a limited time only.
Time's taste tests yielded fairly positive results on both fronts, though it seems more people liked the cookie dough flavor than the marshmallow crispy. According to the magazine, the cookie flavor tastes more like a Starbucks Frappuccino than cookie dough. Still sounds pretty good to us. But things are more complicated with the marshmallow crispy variety -- which are pretty obviously supposed to taste like Rice Krispy Treats -- which one Time staffers declared inedible. The creme in these cookies has actual pieces of crunchy rice sandwiched between two golden Oreos.
And if you just can't wait to get your hands on these cookies, ABC News says you can tune into the Grammys on ABC this Sunday to get a special hashtag that will be revealed during an Oreos commercial. Using the hashtag, Oreo
addicts fans can Tweet for the chance to score the snacks before they hit the shelves.
