Peanut butter and mint Oreo chocolate bars? Sign me up! Cadbury and Oreo seem to be learning that a partnership between the two of them is just what this world needed.
Cosmopolitan reports that the Oreo Mint and Oreo Peanut Butter flavors are available now in the U.K. "We are delighted to add these two sumptuous new flavors to the classic Cadbury Dairy Milk Oreo, giving chocolate lovers even more ways to enjoy their favorite treat," the brand manager at Mondelez said of the new candy flavors.
"Tasty and irresistible, the peanut butter variant will appeal to those who love the current peanut butter trend, while the delicious mint flavor will no doubt delight those who love a classic combination."
Metro UK was so excited to learn about this new flavor combo that they decided to do a taste-test of both varieties. The first they tried was the Oreo Mint chocolate bar. The consensus on that bar was that it was like a "much-improved Aero," the holes in which were apparently too distracting. I haven't had one, so I wouldn't know. The Oreo Peanut Butter bar was reportedly "just peanut-y enough." All in all, the unanimous vote was of approval from the news team!
Both bars are made with Cadbury chocolate (of course) and feature either a peanut butter, or mint filling -- depending on which you're opting for -- with chunks of chocolate Oreo cookie mixed in.
The sad news, which comes from Refinery29, is that the new chocolate bars are only available in the U.K. We won't be seeing them in the U.S. until further notice. Refinery29 does maintain, however, that we shouldn't lose hope. Since it's happened in the past that consumer demand has brought new flavors into the U.S., we may not be out of line in hoping it happens again.
Until that day, we can satisfy ourselves with the Oreo Eggs that we do have, sort of a consolation prize (in my opinion) for not having the Cadbury Oreo Egg here, and probably just as good. Let's just stock up on those and bide our time.
