Well, this is good news indeed! Time is reporting that Nabisco is set to launch two new oreo flavors on February 3rd, for a limited time only. The flavors are “cookie dough” and “marshmallow crispy”.
The writers at Time are a witty bunch, and I was amused by these musings within the story:
First, there’s the cookie dough variety. After taking a bite of the treat, one TIME staffer’s eyes lit up with joy and wonderment as he declared it even better than the original. Then he promptly went back for seconds. Here’s the thing, though: while delicious, it doesn’t really taste like cookie dough. Several staffers said they got hints of coffee or caramel, and one said it should be renamed the Frappuccino Oreo. It’s good, we all agreed, but if you were to taste it blindly, you most likely wouldn’t guess that it’s supposed to represent cookie dough. Still, because it’s technically a cookie dough-flavored cookie, one TIME writer dubbed it the “meta Oreo.”
The Meta Oreo! Yes!!!! It sounds like a superhero, doesn’t it? I think it is clear that we need to get our hands on some of these new oreos stat, and perhaps even make the Meta Oreo the official mascot of Mental Skillness HQ.
We are guessing that they won’t be available on Canadian shelves any time soon, so if you are headed to the States in the near future please send us a care package!
