There are several ways to eat Oreos: Bite into one. Dip another into a tall glass of milk until it’s that perfect soft (not mushy) texture. Shove one in your mouth like a chip. Remove the top, lick the filling, then mow down on the cookies. Or perhaps just eat the filling in its entirety and toss the cookies aside. Don’t even get us started on the deep-fried variety, those wrapped in bacon or the crumbled cookies reserved for ice cream toppings, cookie and brownie batter. Really, eating Oreos is a foodie art form.
But while Canadians can eat their Oreos like everyone else, we don’t have the luxury of eating the vast array of flavours our neighbours south of the border nosh on. We, of course, have the Original, the Golden Oreo and the Double Stuf versions. And for now, Canadians can get Birthday Cake, essentially a super-sweet version of the Original but with coloured sprinkles in the cream. Yawn. Sadly, Mondelēz Canada let us know that they have no information on whether we will be getting any more of these specialty flavours in the near future. Harrumph.
Can you imagine the glorious cookie days ahead if we were to get even a small fraction of the amazing flavour combinations that have been seasonably available at Target stores in the U.S.?
Just take a look:
A Golden cookie with that unmistakable orange and cream filling seems like a winner.
Similar to the Lemon Twist (which Canada also never got), we can only imagine how fresh and lip-smackingly tangy this is.
It’s like autumn in your mouth!
If you love candy corn all year round, these are the Oreos for you.
Um, but how will we have a glass of milk with this?
Perfect for the holidays. Or any time of year. And just imagine the recipes it’ll inspire.
Ice Cream Rainbow Shure, Bert!
It’s got a great name and little kids and big kids alike will love that pink and green cream.
So. Much. Happening.
There are no words but SLURP.
Berry Burst Ice Cream
If you’re into berry-flavoured cough syrup, this might be the flavour for you.
Seems like the kind of cookie you just bite into and not the “twist off and lick” but we’ll still take it.
Root Beer Float
Um, yes please.
We bet these taste like fun.
First target run down! #cottoncandyoreos #oreos acquired. Who wants some? A photo posted by Lisa Sugar (@lisapopsugar) on
From what we’ve uncovered these taste more like coffee and caramel and brown sugar than cookie dough. Ain’t nothing wrong with that.
Like a slice of cake in Oreo form. Velvety, cream-cheesy goodness.
Peppermint flavour with an additional crunch? Giddy. Up.
Berry, berry good.
With a glass of milk or glass of punch? You decide.
DQ Blizzard Creme
An Oreo Blizzard filling inside the chocolate cookie. Too much Oreo? Please. There’s never enough Oreo.
An Oreo that tastes like a Rice Krispies Treat? Where have you been all our lives?
