Apparently Oreo-flavored candy canes exist—and we’re strangely OK with it. To be perfectly clear: This does not mean we condone mac and cheese or pickle-flavored candy canes, because we don’t. That’s disgusting and unnecessary.
For the most part, we’re in the peppermint-and-peppermint-only candy cane camp. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
If there's one appropriate way to celebrate National Oreo Day, it's by eating as many Oreos as humanly possible—revisiting the classic flavors and trying the new varieties. So, our friends at Food & Wine took it upon themselves to have an Oreo taste test in honor of the cream-filled sandwich cookie’s 106th birthday.
Do any cookie brands work as hard as Oreo does? The king of creme-filling always seems to be unleashing a barrage of new flavors and variations. Just last week, we covered a new Oreo Cookie Club Subscription Box with the company promising a monthly dump of new product innovations, essentially tossing off ideas like mixtapes between proper albums. And now, barely three weeks into 2018, Oreo already has a couple more new products finding their way into the hands of diehard cookie addicts.
We attempted to be good-natured, even enthusiastic, about your new flavor releases. Which is challenging, seeing how you release one every other day. We even tried the Filled Cupcake and Lemon Oreos--which, to be honest, kind of sucked. The latter tasted like generic all-purpose cleaner.
Diehard Oreo fans, you’re about to flip after feasting eyes on this seductive crossroad where breakfast meets dessert. After the hype surrounding Oreo’s release of new flavors (which of course, we taste-tested), there’s a new Oreo-obsessive food hybrid happening... and it just might make your heart flutter. Behold, The Oreo Overload Bagel.
