If you could create any Oreo cookie combination, what would be at the top of your list? I think my personal choices might be cannoli, apple-tini, banana bread, Boston cream pie, German chocolate cake, candied jalapeño, and a double-stuff made with thin cookies. Okay fine, it's not a flavor, but it would save me considerable time in removing the middles to make larger cookies! Please tell me I'm not the only one who does that?
Apparently I'm not the only one who dreams up Oreo flavors. This year Oreo launched "My Creation Contest," where cookie fans dreamed up new flavors and the top three picks would actually be made into cookies. Well, this week they finally announced the three finalists and I'm very excited about their picks! Want to know what they are?
In the near future we can expect to see the following Oreo creations on the shelf (obviously I'm going to need to try them all and vote on the best one):
- Cherry Cola Oreos (Regular)
- Kettle Corn Oreos (Regular)
- Piña Colada Oreo Thins
There were hundreds of thousands of entries to Oreo's "My Creation Contest" and I'm sure it was an exhausting process to read over each and every entry. More than likely there were as many scary flavor suggestions as there were delicious ones. Surely someone submitted silly things like "dirty socks" and "liver mousse." I'm personally glad these were the winners, as they all sound pretty tasty.
The new flavors are going to hit shelves sometime in May 2018, at which point you'll be able to decide and judge which one is best. I'm very curious how the kettle corn flavor will translate into a cookie. I have no idea!
If May seems like a long way off, then I have good news for you. Oreo is also releasing two other flavors: Hazelnut Chocolate and Hot and Spicy Cinnamon. Both of these flavors will hit shelves sometime after January 1, which is only a few weeks away.
