Sometimes Oreo hits it out of the park with a new flavor, and sometimes it's a totally unpalatable one (fruit punch, anyone?).

In October there were rumors that Oreo was going to release a red velvet flavor. Well, it is finally here, and they actually taste pretty great.

The color of the new Oreo is different from the typical bright red color associated with red velvet. It looks more like rust, but maybe in a good way? Anyway, people really seemed to love it over at BuzzFeed. As one person noted: "Red velvet is the fabric of my soul." I feel you, man.
