On Wednesday, Melendez International officially announced Dark Chocolate Oreos, which will feature dark chocolate-flavored creme between two classic chocolate Oreo cookies. Nabisco said the new cookie will "help fans embrace the darkness and add a dose of playful excitement to the shorter and colder days ahead," reports Today.com. The Dark Chocolate cookie is expected to hit store shelves nationwide on Jan. 2.
While this flavor was officially announced, the Instagram page Candy Hunting posted photos of other un-announced Oreo varieties. One of them is called the Carrot Cake Oreo, with carrot cake flavored cookies and cream cheese-flavored cremes, and will probably hit store shelves around Easter.
Another one is the Love, Oreo, which has Valentine's Day messages printed on the cookie, with filling described as tasting "sweet and tangy."
Finally, there is the Easter Egg Oreo, which is just an Oreo cookie in the shape of an egg with purple-colored creme.
Candy Hunting, which posted a photo of the Dark Chocolate Oreos four days before they were officially announced, also shared images of Fudge-Covered Oreos and the "Most Stuf" Oreo, which will also be available next year.
Nabisco has unveiled dozens of new Oreo flavors in recent years including: Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie, Oreo Thins Pistachio Creme, Rocky Road Trip, Peppermint Bark, Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake, Oreo Birthday Cake and Cherry Cola.
