Cinnamon Bun OREOS Spotted On Grocery Store Shelves


An anonymous photo posted by Impulsive Buy featured what appears to be Oreo’s newest flavor. Spotted on shelves is a new Cinnamon Bun Oreo cookie, reports Impulsive Buy.

The Cinnamon Bun Oreo features a cinnamon bun-flavored creme sandwiched between two white cookies. While most new flavors of Oreo cookies are noticeably packaged as a “Limited Time” deal, the new Cinnamon Bun variant doesn’t feature that at all.

Perhaps it’s here to stay? The cookie is also sold in a 12.2 oz pack, slightly bigger than the packaging that Oreo sells its new flavors in.

Keep an eye out for them in stores. Hopefully they’re real and permanent.

Massive $40 Billion Merger Will Bring Kraft Foods and Heinz Ketchup Together


Kraft Foods Group is set to be purchased by a Brazilian private equity firm for what is said to be $40 billion. The deal between the food manufacturer and the firm known as 3G Capital Partners is in advanced talks, reports the Wall Street Journal.

The last year hasn’t been too kind to Kraft. The company was reported to have lost $398 million in its fourth quarter due to poor sales. In February, Kraft’s CFO officially stepped down along with two other executives.

Some of the snack brands Kraft Foods Group is known for are Oscar Mayer, Kool Aid, Jello, Cool Whip and Kraft Macaroni & Cheese.

In 2014, HJ Heinz was also purchased by 3G. If the merger goes as planned, it will become third the largest packaged food business in the United States.

The new company will be called Kraft Heinz Company.
