We all might as well face it – as mass-produced cookies go, it doesn’t get much better than Oreo. But nevertheless, the Nabisco people still pretty regularly manage to find the time and energy (not to mention the money) to come up with special novelty Oreo flavors for the public’s enjoyment and, ultimately, regret. The latest is Red Velvet Oreo, which is getting a limited market run early next month.
From what I can understand, the Red Velvet Oreo combines a red velvet cookie with a cream cheese filling in the familiar Oreo cookie formation. Beyond that, I cannot say more, because I haven’t been able to try these cookies – but I’m sure they’re delicious. And they’re hitting a grocery store near you on February 2nd, just in time for Valentine’s Day (because nothing says romance like eating an entire thing of Oreo cookies in one sitting).
If you find yourself unable to wait until early next month to try the Red Velvet Oreo cookies, there’s a website set up for you to enter a sweepstakes to win a box of the cookies before they come out in stores. If you’re in an emotional place to do such a thing, you can check it out here.
