According to the calendar and the weather I am feeling (and avoiding) outside, it is definitely still summer. We have nearly two months still before we can officially say it’s fall, but we all know the pumpkin spice lattes will start flowing before it’s even September.
And I don’t mind at all. Come Sept. 1 (at least I wait until then), all of the soap and candles in my house Cinderella their way into pumpkin scents. Clearly, I am not alone. Bath and Body Works released their new fall scents in July, and M&M’s just launched a new Creepy Cocoa Crisp flavor that sounds perfect for Halloween. And it looks like Oreo isn’t waiting for autumn, either.
Hey, it’s never too early for some holiday cheer!
The new Halloween Oreos will be available starting in mid-August nationwide for a limited time, while supplies last. Nabisco says the cookies will taste just like regular Oreos, but they’ll have orange-colored creme and five Halloween designs stamped into the crunchy cookie, such as a spiderweb, a witch on a broomstick and a jack-o’-lantern.
Before Halloween even comes to an end, Oreo’s new winter cookies will hit shelves, at the end of October (again, for a limited time while supplies last). These Oreos will also taste exactly the same, but they’ll have red-colored creme and five winter designs: a penguin, snowflake, mittens, snowman and the words “Snow Day!”
These new Oreos are just a small selection of ones they’ve been releasing all spring and summer. The new Maple Creme Oreos will be available by the end of August. The Oreo cookies are golden Oreos and inside is syrupy sweet maple-flavored crème.
One serving, or two cookies, is 140 calories, 2 grams of saturated fat, and 12 grams of sugar.
Food blogger @junkbanter initially broke the news about the new flavor on Instagram last spring. “Bring on the new Maple Creme Oreos, debuting some time this year (I’d have to guess this will be a late summer release in advance of the fall season),” the caption read.
It goes on to read, “Not exactly the most creative flavor, but Oreo should do a good job with it. I’m thinking like the Waffles & Syrup Oreos without the butter flavor, and a more intense maple.”
Nabisco later confirmed that the new cookies will hit shelves sooner rather than later.
In addition to the maple flavor for fall, other new flavors include Marshmallow Moon, mint chocolate chip, latte crème Oreo Thins and s’mores. Just like holiday cookies, they will not be around forever, so get them while you can.
Who’s ready for fall? I say, bring it on!
