To all of you in the lonely hearts club (we’ve been members for two years now), Valentine’s Day can be a pretty difficult day. Even if you’re not into all of that mushy stuff, seeing every other person on the campus holding a bouquet of red roses or a huge teddy bear that says “I LUV U,” can get annoying. Luckily, going forward, you will never be alone on Valentine’s Day thanks to Nabisco.
Starting on February 2 (just in time for V-Day), Red Velvet Oreos will be available for a limited time, costing you just $4.49. The cookie itself will be red velvet, while the filling is cream cheese-flavored creme. “The brand decided on Red Velvet Oreo as its latest flavor as part of its ongoing mission to put its own twist on popular flavors,” an Oreo representative told ABC News. “This time around, OREO saw how much consumers love all things red velvet, so it decided to combine the perfect mix of the chocolate OREO cookie taste fans love with a cream cheese-flavored crème for those red velvet fanatics.”
The folks over at PEOPLE magazine had an early taste test of this invention and said that the cookies don’t necessarily taste like real red velvet cake, but did you really expect it to? No, of course not. But we’re sure red velvet or Oreo lovers will definitely enjoy this new treat. Want to try for yourself before everyone else? Oreo is holding a contest where 20,250 winners will win a package of Red Velvet Oreos before anyone else. Enter here.
