Candy Corn Oreos Are a Real Thing, Here is What They Look Like

The latest WTF-inducing flavor from the Oreo brand has arrived, and it’s just in time for the looming Fall season, and the even more anticipated Halloween holiday. Can you say Candy Corn OREO?

Oreo has confirmed that the product is indeed real, and will be available exclusively at Target stores starting next week at a suggested retail price of $3.59. We visited a local Target and grabbed up a couple packages at a slightly cheaper price tag of $2.99.

Each container comes with about 20 cookies, with every two cookies setting you back about 150 calories, 7 grams of fat and 12 grams of sugar.

How do they taste? Like frosting. If no one had told you they were candy corn flavor, chances are you would have never guessed it was themed after the popular Halloween candy. There’s a slight hint of candy corn flavoring, but it’s almost indistinguishable from birthday cake frosting flavors.

According to the packaging, the cookie is a limited edition Halloween season run. Here’s what they look like cracked open:

    I still don’t know why they haven’t taken my suggestion yet for red velvet Oreos.

      would that be red velvet frosting or a red velvet cookie? Red could be a turn-off because of the food coloring Red 40. shrug

        I think the stigma of red dye has faded enough to make that work. I point to the return of red M&Ms as anecdotal evidence. What is the problem with Red #40? The evil stuff I thought was Red #2.
