It's hard to remember a time when there was just one Oreo flavor, isn't it? Remember when it was just the classic chocolate wafers with a vanilla filling? It almost feels like those were simpler times. Now, every single holiday seems to require a new flavor of cookie, and sometimes they even manage to stick around for good.
Don't get me wrong, I think some of the new flavors have been real winners. The carrot cake ones? Unbelievably good. But, at what point are they going to stop? The answer is probably never, so I guess I should stop whining and just get exciting for the new flavors that are set to be released this summer from the cookie company.
1. Marshmallow Moon
This new flavor also includes three new designs on the cookie itself. Oreo is paying tribute to the 50th anniversary of the moon landing with these ones, and they'll be the classic chocolate wafer filled with purple marshmallow creme. Odds are, it will be the same creme that was in the seasonal Peeps cookies, but that's really not that big of a deal.
As a little added bonus, these limited edition cookies will feature glow-in-the-dark packaging and limited edition stickers, as well.
I think of all the new flavors coming this summer, these ones are the most intriguing to me. These cookies, set to be released in June, will be a permanent addition to the cookie lineup, so hopefully they're a big hit.
Coming in the format of the Thins, these Oreos will be a chocolate wafer filled with a latte creme. In theory, they'll be the perfect addition for any morning cup of coffee, or as a sweet treat in the afternoon. Or, if you're like me, you'll be shoveling them into your mouth at midnight when you really want a snack!
3. Mint Chocolate Chip
I know what you're thinking: these cookies already exist, don't they? Not quite. While Oreo does have a mint-flavored cookies, these ones are in honor of Basking Robbins, and will be hitting the shelf in mid-July.
The cookie is going to be one of the more elaborate ones Oreo has ever produced with both mint and dark chocolate cremes inside, as well as chocolate chips. These cookies are limited edition, but something tells me if they're a hit, there might be more collaborations with Baskin Robbins right down the road.
4. Golden Maple Creme
I've got some family that live in Canada, and they'll often send down these delicious maple-filled sandwich cookies that I absolutely love. Now, it looks like I'll be able to get my own version here!
Coming to stores in August, the Maple Creme Oreos will feature golden wafer cookies with a maple-flavored creme in the middle. Sign me up!
Which of these flavors are you most looking forward to trying?
