Nabisco Makes Candy Corn Oreos for Halloween

Halloween treat blends cookies and candy


Nabisco is celebrating Halloween with the unholy union of Oreo cookies and that holiday’s most iconic signature treat. That’s right, candy corn-flavored Oreos are real, at least until the end of October.

The best novelty flavors are the ones that sound so weird you just have to try them, and this one isn’t far from the mark. When the photos first began circulating, people thought it might be a delicious, weird hoax. But the company confirmed that the yellow and orange cookies were real, and that the flavor was a limited edition holiday novelty exclusive to Target stores.

According to The Huffington Post, the cookies were expected to be in stores on Monday for $3.59 per package, but Foodbeast managed to get their hands on a package for $2.99. 

“How do they taste?” writes Elie Ayrouth. “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.”

They still look cool, though, with a plain golden cookie around that bright orange and yellow two-tone filling. It’d be tempting to bring them out in at Halloween parties just so people would say, “OMG, are those candy corn Oreos? I heard about those on the Internet!” And presentation isn't limited to just a plate of plain cookies.
