OREOiD Lets You Make Custom OREO Designs And Creations

If you ever wanted to make your own custom OREOs, the beloved cookie brand is giving you nearly unfettered access to do so.

Their new website, OREOiD, lets you custom design nearly every single aspect of the iconic cookie.

On the website, you can alter the color of the creme filling, choose a fudge dip (white chocolate or regular chocolate) to enrobe the OREO, a variety of colored sprinkles to put on top, and even custom imagery and text that can go on the cookies.

For those wondering if you can change the flavor as well, an OREO representative told Foodbeast that currently, that’s not an available option. However, they left open the possibility that it could be something added in the future.

OREO does provide nutritional information and ingredients based on the changes you make, and even packages them up for you to purchase. You can get individual pieces or buy larger sets to get shipped, with the process taking approximately 8-10 days.

It’s an intriguing, fun gift idea for those looking for presents for avid OREO fans, or a creative and edible party favor or holiday card.

OREO Reveals That ‘Churro Creme’ Is Their Latest Mystery Flavor

You might remember OREO selling blank packages of “Mystery OREOs” earlier this year, as they challenged fans to guess what the flavor would be. The guessing game came attached with a hefty $50,000 cash prize for one lucky consumer who correctly identified the flavor.

We now officially know that the Mystery OREO flavor was:

Churro.

The cinnamon-based mystery wasn’t terribly hard to crack. Cinnamon buns could be ruled out, as they’ve already been a past flavor, and something like Cinnamon Toast Crunch was too meta, and the world wouldn’t be ready for that collab.

OREO is very keen on food trends, and churros have been flourishing in the U.S. of late, with several restaurants revolving around the chewy cinnamon dessert.

It also makes sense considering the inverse already exists in OREO flavored churros.

While OREO said there are no plans to release an official churro flavored creme package, the mystery packages are still available in stores for a limited time while supplies last.

We knew that Game of Thrones was gonna go big on their promotions for the final season, but the writing wizards of Winterfell have conjured up an unexpected surprise nobody expected: Official show-branded OREOs.

First reported on by packaged food Instagrammers like TheJunkFoodAisle and CandyHunting, Foodbeast has received official confirmation from OREO’s team that these Game of Thrones OREO packages are launching soon.

OREO wouldn’t provide any more detail than that confirmation, but promised to share additional details about the HBO collab as soon as possible.

For now, we just know that these will be dropping some time around April 14th, when the final season of Game of Thrones begins.

Oreos Debuts CARROT CAKE Cookies As Newest Flavor

We’re always eager to see what new flavors the Oreos factory is churning out. Last year, they added some delectable variety to their legion of flavors with the addition of Strawberry Shortcake and Rocky Road.

Now it seems one of the newest flavors to hit the snack aisle will be one for the rabbits. Or at least anyone with a taste for carrots. Yup, Nabisco just dropped Carrot Cake Oreos.

The new cookie boasts a cream cheese-flavored creme that’s sandwiched between two carrot-flavored cookies.

According to Oreos, the flavor is confirmed to be a permanent addition to the line, rather than just a seasonal offering.

Beyond that rich new offering, Nabisco is also debuting a limited edition “Love, Oreo” which features a sweet and tangy pink creme spread in between two cookie pieces with special messages like “Dunk In Love, “XOXO Oreo”, “Let’s Twist”, and “Dear Cupid Send Oreo.” These are also available now and will stay on shelves through the end of Valentine’s Day, presumably.

Carrot Cake Oreos and Love, Oreos can now be found at any grocery retailers that offer Oreos. As a huge fan of carrot cake, it’s nice to see the dessert get some love.

Popeyes and Church’s Chicken Are Now Both Selling Deep Fried OREOs

Could the newest dessert fast food trend be deep fried OREO cookies? It appears to be starting to head in that direction, as two different fast food fried chicken spots have started selling versions of the state fair treat.

Church’s Chicken is selling State Fair Oreos, a product that’s been in freezers around the country for a while but has yet to hit the fast food scene. Available nationwide for a limited time, they’re served with a drizzle of sweet icing and sold in a pack of 6 for $3.99.

Meanwhile, Popeyes is testing out a deep-fried Double Stuf OREO in the Boston area. Funnel cake batter coats these thick OREO cookies, which are served on their own in an order of 2, 3, or 4 pieces. The 2-piece comes at $1.99, with the prices varying after that. These will only be available in Boston through the end of October via in-store or UberEats.

With the two fried chicken rivals dishing out the treats at the same time, it may only be a matter of time before more competitors, and the rest of fast food, eventually follow suit.

OREO Mooncakes Are Available In Asia And They Look AMAZING

OREO has dropped some crazy flavors in Asia before, like their Hot Chicken and Wasabi renditions. One of their newer creations, though, merges the cookie sandwich with traditional Chinese/Vietnamese treats called mooncakes.

A post shared by Marcus and Matthew (@mnmtwinz) on

We found these OREO Mooncakes thanks to the Instagram twin team behind @mnmtwinz, Marcus and Matthew. While the treats are exclusive to Asia, they managed to purchase a gift set of the mooncakes on eBay.

Traditionally, mooncakes are consumed during the mid-Autumn Festival (also known as the Moon Festival), which is celebrated by both China and Vietnam. This year, it falls on September 24 to correspond with the season’s first full moon.

The mooncakes are meant to be shared with family, as a symbol of reunion and to wish for a long and happy life. These OREO versions were created as a way for folks to both partake in the tradition and enjoy OREO flavors at the same time.

They’re not necessarily new, as Design Taxi reported that China and Vietnam first carried these in 2017, however, other countries like Thailand and Singapore are getting exposed to them for the first time this year.

The dense outside of the cake is usually filled with a lotus seed paste that may come in various flavors. These special versions have that lotus interior, but also contain a second paste inside that provides one of various flavors. The ones that Marcus and Matthew tried included Brownie Chocolate, Double Chocolate with Milk, Strawberry Jam, and Custard and Pineapple Jam.

Those interested in trying them outside of Asia may find them hard to track down, as the eBay user that @mnmtwinz bought its set from, is currently out of stock. If you do get your hands on a set, though, you’re in for a unique twist on a mid-Autumn Festival treat.

Hot Chicken Wing And Wasabi OREOs Exist And Folks Are Freaking Out

Mondelez has become a culinary wizard when it comes to creating their out-of-bounds OREO flavors. The two newest ones, Hot Chicken and Wasabi OREOs, bring some fire in terms of flavor, but are also catching a bunch of heat from the Internet.

Mondelez announced in an official tweet that the new OREO flavors were released in China, but they can also apparently be tracked down on eBay, according to The Junk Food Aisle. Still, not everyone is keen on trying these cookies for themselves, as Twitter seems to currently suggest.

The spicy flavors may not sound like the best combo with OREOs, but they have some potential to work. Kit Kat has already had a wasabi flavor going for a while in Japan and it’s gotten mostly positive feedback. Hot chicken combined with sweet stuff is a little out of left field, sure, but maybe it’ll resonate like the sweet-spicy combo of chicken and waffles.

Regardless, these buzzworthy OREOs are worth the attempt to secure to at least say you got a taste. Or you could just switch the hot chicken OREOs in with some Halloween-themed ones as an epic prank for trick-or-treaters.

Fireworks OREOs, Complete With Popping Candy, Just Got Turned Into A DQ Blizzard

Last year, Mondelez sent the Internet abuzz with the debut of their Fireworks OREOs. Imbued with popping candy, each bite set your mouth alight with a crackling fizz akin to firecrackers.

Looks like OREOs’ makers are on to the popping candy hype again, as they’ve dropped it into a new Dairy Queen Blizzard, just in time for the Fourth of July.

DQ’s new OREO Firework Blizzard Treat meshes the two key components of the Fireworks OREO together in a way that gives you maximum fizz and flavor. OREO cookies and individual pieces of popping candy are mixed into vanilla soft serve to construct the Blizzard.

It was a smart move to separate the two individual flavors, over just trying to incorporate Fireworks OREOs. You’re going to get more snapping per sip as the larger popping candy pieces take longer to dissolve and crackle on your tongue. Thus, the sensory contrast this Blizzard provides is pushed to the max, giving you a fun drink to celebrate and sip on for the Fourth.

The Dairy Queen-OREO collab is available now through the end of July, so you can get your Fireworks OREO fix in frozen treat form.
