When it comes to new varieties, Oreo is not one to shy away from creative, unusual, or downright strange cookie inventions. But while we may not have been too keen on Pumpkin Spice or Watermelon Oreos, we give two thumbs way, way up to the latest Oreo innovation: Cinnamon Bun. The limited-edition Cinnamon Bun Oreos will hit stores this month, along with the return of last year’s favorite Red Velvet Oreos.
The Cinnamon Bun Oreo variety features a cinnamon cookie reminiscent of a Teddy Graham stuffed with cinnamon bun-flavored crème. The Red Velvet cookie is red (of course), and has a cream cheese-flavored Oreo filling. Both flavors are available for $4.49.
The Daily Meal had the chance to sample both flavors fresh out the Oreo vault, and we have to say, we were pretty impressed by the Cinnamon Bun Oreo — it tasted eerily similar to Cinnabon in cookie form (without all the sticky icing). As for Red Velvet, like the last time we saw this Oreo variety out and about, we loved the realistic baked good-scent of this cookie, but feel that the flavor profile and texture is a bit off.
Both flavors coincide with the launch of the mysterious Oreo Wonder Vault, which will be unveiling a third limited-edition Oreo variety sometime soon.
