Nabisco’s Oreo is answering fan requests — not with a new cookie, but by bringing back its most requested flavor. Oreo Red Velvet is officially back in stores for a limited time starting Sept. 12 and will remain while supplies last.
The flavor combines a red velvet-flavored base cake with red cream cheese-flavored creme. Oreo announced the return of the flavor on Instagram after a few posts teasing that something “red” was on the way.
Oreo Red Velvet cookies were first released in 2015. They were actually supposed to be a permanent addition to the cookie lineup but were discontinued in 2020.
While not technically a holiday flavor, red velvet is often seen around Christmas time because of its color, so there’s a chance the cookies will be around until then. Just in case they won’t be in stores that long, however, it’s probably best not to wait. Make sure you pick up a pack on your next grocery run.
As for Oreo, the brand has had dozens of limited-edition flavors over the years, from Mocha Caramel Latte to Tiramisu, Salted Caramel Brownie and Chocolate Confetti Cake to celebrate its 110th birthday.
Its latest release, however, isn’t a new flavor. Instead, it’s a tribute to Nintendo. Super Mario Oreos feature 16 designs and characters including Mario and Luigi, Yoshi and Bowser Jr.
The Super Mario cookies are in stores now, but only for a limited time. You’ll want to grab them while you still can.
