Sometimes it’s hard to tell who’s busier: the Oreo product development team or the Oreo rumor mill. With a never-ending stream of new, returning, and limited-edition items hitting shelves, Oreo typically has iterations of its classic cookie dropping every month— but at the same time, a cottage industry of sites and social media accounts has sprung up to try to break these kinds of releases before they happen, often with info and images popping up months in advance. Just where this leaked content comes from is a different story entirely, but one thing is for certain: These rumor sites are almost always accurate.
Once again proving that fact, today, the Oreo team officially confirmed five flavors set to debut on, or return to, shelves nationwide this summer. And guess what? We’ve already covered nearly all of them. Still, now that Oreo has sent along the official product details, we might as well give you the rundown again.
S’more Oreos are back as of today. Originally launched in 2015, Oreo bills this variety as a “fan favorite,” and it’s certainly a good fit for nights where a campfire would be cool, but you’re just too lazy to light one up. Instead, these Oreos come premade with “a graham flavored cookie with marshmallow and chocolate flavored crème.”
Oreo Thins Latte will arrive in June. Here is the one Oreo iteration we haven’t touched on before — in part because, let’s be honest, these thinner Oreos simply don’t have the cachet of the original even if they are a slightly more reasonable way to indulge. That said, if you like Oreo Thins, these slim cookies with latte-flavored crème are joining the permanent Thins lineup.
Oreo Marshmallow Moon hits shelves in mid-June. We originally caught wind of these Apollo 11 tribute Oreos last month which will feature “three fun, moon-landing designs on the cookie” and “come in glow in the dark packaging with anniversary sticker sets on pack,” according to the brand.
They also feature a purple filling which is marshmallow flavored (because what else would purple taste like, I guess?).
