I am just a food writer, standing in front of you, telling you that I was once again wrong about the next Oreo flavor release. Oreo was on a roll, re-releasing their entire flavor lineup from 2015 this summer starting with Cotton Candy and S’mores Oreos, followed closely by Red Velvet in the fall, which I correctly predicted for the first (and, let’s face it, only) time. My thought was that the next flavor was going to be Toasted Coconut since that was the next release in 2015, but my luck ended there. In October, Oreo went ahead and brought back their Hot Cocoa flavor instead. And now, they’ve announced their first release in a good long while: New York-inspired Black & White Cookie Oreos. Somebody call Jerry Seinfeld!
Will Black & White Cookie Oreos be kind of like S’moreos? If you opened a bunch of them and organized them into a grid, could you play chess on them with different-sized gummy bears?
In other news from Oreo, they are also releasing Peanut Butter Creme Cakesters (a whoopie pie-esque Oreo creation), as well as a Golden version of their gluten-free cookies as additions to their permanent lineup (the Black & White Cookie flavor is only going to be around for a limited time). All three of these hit shelves in January. This is exciting and all, but now it is time for everyone’s favorite part of the Oreo article: I have to guess the next new Oreo flavor release. I’ll keep this one simple; I think it is going to be Ube. I know I already guessed this before, but it is supposed to be the flavor of the year in 2024 and I feel like someday Oreo just has to pull the trigger on this one. Plus, if I keep guessing it, I have to be right eventually.
