Yes, there’s a brand new Oreo flavor in the works and it’s sort of weird. The Junk Food Aisle on Instagram was the first to leak the announcement of this bizarre creation, an account that is dedicated to finding the best junk food on store shelves and rating them based on taste.
Fans are assuming that the Oreo company must be going for a “sweet yet savory” kind of taste and we’re all kind of intrigued at this “buttered popcorn” idea. Additionally, The Junk Food Aisle also revealed that they were able to try this Oreo flavor previously without knowing what it was. See what they said below!
“Coming Soon! Buttered Popcorn Oreo!” the post begins, “Weird but true: I got to try one of these last month without being told what flavor it was, and I would have put all my money on it being “Pineapple” after just licking the creme. Eating it in its natural sandwich cookie state though and it becomes everyone’s least favorite Jelly Belly (but better!)”
So, it appears that maybe the ‘buttered popcorn’ flavor doesn’t even exactly taste like popcorn, but more like a sweet pineapple flavor.
With the newest, whackiest Oreo flavor coming out (hopefully soon, so we can all try it), Oreo has released a bunch of other new, fun flavors in recent months and all of them are either innovative, delicious, or both!
We can’t forget the Dark Chocolate Oreo, the Carrot Cake Oreo, and the Birthday Cake Oreo. For the Christmas season, the Oreo company released a limited-edition Peppermint Bark Oreo and we can confirm it was absolutely delicious. Hopefully, it will become a holiday staple!
Thankfully, someone conjured up a list of the weirdest Oreo flavors out there, so you can remind yourself just how much you want to try one (or don’t want to try one, your call). Thanks to Spoon University, here’s a reminder of just a few of the weirdest Oreo flavors.
