Oreo’s may just be our favorite grocery store cookie. I mean, whether you bite ’em, twist ’em or dunk ’em, they are delicious, but their latest flavor has us scratching our heads. According to Instagram user @thejunkfoodaisle, Nabisco will be releasing a buttered popcorn-flavored Oreo.
Details about the cookie are vague, though we imagine they will be sweet, salty and a tad bit savory. And while we don’t know what the creamy filling or crunchy cookie will taste like, according to @thejunkfoodaisle, the Oreo is similar to “everyone’s least favorite Jelly Belly (but better!).”
If this flavor profile seems a bit strange, don’t worry; you’re not alone. This is the Oreo no one asked for, sort of like pickle-flavored lollipops or mac and cheese candy canes. And it seems many Twitter users agree. Comments ranged from “NO. Dammit, @nabisco, stop messing with
#oreos” to “is this what we really needed in 2019?”

Coming Soon! Buttered Popcorn Oreo! 🍿 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!)

The good news is, if popcorn isn’t your jam, Oreo has several other new flavors. Earlier this month, Nabisco debuted the Dark Chocolate Oreo — a cookie that, according to an email the company sent to Delish, sandwiches “dark chocolate-flavored creme… between two classic Oreo chocolate wafers” — and the Carrot Cake Oreo, which pairs carrot cake-flavored cookies with cream cheese-flavored cream.
As for the buttered popcorn blend, no word on when the new flavor will hit store shelves. All we know is that @thejunkfoodaisle says they are #ComingSoon. Too soon.
