Oreo is great at coming up with fun new flavors each season, and this upcoming flavor is no exception. We expect to get to try Oreo's new Hot Cocoa flavor sometime in 2017.
TheJunkFoodAisle on Instagram shared a mockup of what the packaging will most likely look like. Here's a sneak peek:
According to Foodbeast, the new cookie flavor will feature chocolate and marshmallow flavoring. I wonder what will set the chocolate in this flavor apart from the normal chocolate we taste in the cookies or in the inside of the Oreo? I guess we'll find out in 2017.
In the meantime, we can satisfy ourselves with Oreo flavors that are currently out, like the Winter Oreo with peppermint icing, or the new Chocolate Oreo Thins. For the holiday season, Oreo is even offering a Limited Edition White Fudge Holiday Tin on its website. Remember those classic Oreos dipped in white fudge? They could make a perfect holiday gift, or further serve to keep you distracted while waiting for the new Hot Cocoa flavor.
If you're looking to go a little less guilty in your Oreo snacking, the company is currently offering Oreo Thins in classic, golden and mint varieties as well.
Even better news is that Oreo is coming out with candy bars too! According to its website, Oreo has partnered with Milka, a European chocolate company, to develop a Big Crunch Bar that is stuffed with Oreo cream and crunchy Oreo cookie. If that can't hold you off, I don't know what will. Milka chocolates are delicious in their own right. Adding Oreo is just a win-win.
Two more new Oreo-Milka products to look forward to are the Milka Oreo Chocolate Candy Bar and the Milka Oreo Choco-Mix. The Milka Candy Bar will feature Oreo pieces mixed in vanilla cream and coated in Milka's famous European chocolate, and the Milka Oreo Choco-Mix will feature a mixture of mini classic and golden Oreo's, along with Milka chocolate buttons for a mixed-texture snacking experience.
Oreo's got a lot going on this holiday season. Enjoy what you can now and look forward to 2017!
