If you love autumn and you love sweets, do I have some good news for you: Pumpkin Spice Oreos are back!
Yes, my friends. For a limited time only, Oreo is rolling out their Pumpkin Spice-flavored cookies. These beauties are exclusively available at a Target near you, and they retail for $2.99 per package.
Made with Golden Oreos and a Pumpkin Spice Creme filling, these seasonal treats are beloved by many, and have even been called “surprisingly delightful.”
However, some people have complained that the Pumpkin Spice Oreos smell a bit too much like a scented candle, while others say that the treats taste more like gingerbread instead of pumpkin.

In addition to the Pumpkin Spice Oreos, Nabisco debuted a new seasonal cookie this year: Apple Pie Oreos.
Apple Pie Oreos also cost $2.99, and they are made with graham cracker cookies and an apple pie-flavored creme. They’ve been available since mid-August and reviews for this flavor are a bit mixed:
They're sweet like #honey pie

it was okay. I would recommend the developers to tone down the allspice/ginger notes. The apple is a tad too earthy tasting vs. brown sugary

Of course, some people think it’s time to just leave well enough alone:
Leave the oreo alone.

If you’re an Oreo purist, but you still want to enjoy a seasonal Oreo treat, try making your own seasonal batch of sweets!
Over at Something Swanky, food blogger Ashton shared a mouth-watering recipe for pumpkin pie with an Oreo cookie crust:
Or, since the fall weather has not begun in earnest, why not enjoy a cool treat such as a pumpkin spice Oreo milkshake? And, here’s a genius idea: You can even ‘spike’ it with your favorite liquor.
What do you think? Have you tried the new seasonal Oreos? Are you sick of pumpkin spice everything?
