And it’s actually kinda genius?

Confession: When I saw that people on Twitter were making Oreo Rice, I was irrationally annoyed. I mean, Oreos and rice? Pure lunacy.

But, upon further investigation, I realized this was not the work of a maniac—it’s really no different from rice pudding.

A Twitter user (@WahyuYordan) tweeted the above photos this week alongside the caption “Oreo Rice” with a salivating emoji.

Understandably, people were disturbed.

I, one of the disturbed people, took to Google to find out more information. As it turns out, Oreo Rice is not a new thing at all—Buzzfeed staffers actually tested it out way back in 2015.

Their step-by-step report shows that it’s basically prepared the same way other dessert rices are prepared: By bringing white rice, butter, and milk to a boil, then adding in whatever you’re using to make the recipe sweet (in this case, an entire package of Oreos).

Though the end result kind of looks like mud, I can definitely see how it would taste good.

If you’re into Oreos and you’re into rice pudding, you might as well give this a try. Hey, why not?

Thanks, Twitter.
