If the rumors are true, folks, we’ve just been hit with yet another new Oreo flavor: Marshmallow Moon Oreos (as if we really needed another following the release of Most Stuf, Game of Thrones, Easter egg-shaped Oreos and the truly bizarre buttered popcorn-flavored Oreos). Why Marshmallow Moon, you ask? To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, of course.
According to CandyHunting on Instagram, the Marshmallow Moon Oreos will reportedly have a marshmallow-flavored, light purple-hued cream filling; the cookie itself will do away with the traditional Nabisco stamp and will be imprinted with a moon and three stars. The packaging will also, reportedly, glow in the dark. Epic.

New Marshmallow Moon Oreos will be out soon! The cream appears to be a light shade of purple and marshmallow flavored (though, the flavor sourcing declaration is supposed to go after/below the stated flavor, not above, on the front of pack). The pack uses phosphorescent (glow in the dark) ink and has stickers on the back. If you're wondering why the name Marshmallow Moon sounds familiar, it's because Ben & Jerry's released a Special Stash flavor by that name in 2017.
However, a different foodie Instagram account, @markie_devo, claims that the packaging won’t actually glow, and the cookie’s chocolate wafer will, instead, have a rocket ship stamped onto the cookie. Either way, we’re on board with this new, out-of-this-world Oreo flavor.

The launch date of these limited-edition Oreos hasn’t been announced yet, but hey, we do know that the exact date of the very first human landing on the Moon was July 20 — so we can expect these Marshmallow Moon Oreos to be released sometime close to that date.
