Oreo's latest flavor is not even a cookie

That Oreo — they're always throwing us for a loop. Their latest flavor isn't a flavor at all — it's candy. The new(ish) Milka Oreo Big Crunch Bar is hitting our shelves. They're collaborating with European candy company Milka to create two bars, in fact — the crunch bar and Milka Oreo Chocolate Bar.

The Big Crunch is an Oreo cookie sandwiched between vanilla crème layers and covered in chocolate. It's kind of a reverse Oreo cookie. And at 10.5 ounces ($5), it lives up to its big name.

It also resembles a much smaller Japanese candy I love called Big Thunder (Amazon, $13/10 pack). If Oreo's is anywhere as good as this bar, I think we're going to love it. Actually, the Oreo candies have been available overseas for a while, but we're finally getting them here.

The chocolate bar appears to be a chocolate bar with vanilla crème and Oreo cookie filling.
