The Mystery Oreo Is Finally Revealed—Introducing Churro Oreos!

The time has come to reveal the flavor behind the Mystery Oreo. Did you guess right?

Oreo hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down this year. If anything, milk’s favorite cookie has been busier than ever, treating us to all kinds of seasonal snacks, from cool Baskin-Robbins Mint Chocolate Chip to S’mores Oreos that were just perfect for around the campfire. Even more recently, they announced the re-release of Peppermint Bark Oreos, which are rolling into stores now for the jolly season. We naively assumed Christmas flavors spelled the end for new Oreos in 2019, and we couldn’t have been more wrong.

Oreo has since challenged their devoted fans in the sweetest way possible. By putting their taste buds to the test to figure out the newest flavor hitting shelves soon. Well, you did it, America, and the time has finally come—introducing Churro Oreos!

Here’s What Went Down

Oreo released three different Mystery OREO packs, each one containing a different clue. To get to the bottom of the Mystery Oreo, you had to snap up all three packs to get a full profile on the mystery flavor. While we began the hunt, the folks at Nabisco dropped hints on Facebook for eagle-eyed Oreo fans, the first one being the flavor was all in the creme.

Plenty of cookie lovers threw their suggestions into the ring, guessing everything from funnel cake to French toast, but it’s the majestic churro that reigned supreme once the dust cleared. The grand prize, you might remember, was a total of $50,000, and Oreo has already named a winner. Sadly, it wasn’t us. We’re not too down, though—at least we get to enjoy a brand new flavor courtesy of Oreo!

Get in Line at Your Grocery Store

We finally unraveled the mystery behind Churro Oreos, but there’s another one afoot. Oreo hasn’t divulged just yet when or where we can get our hands on Churro Oreos. At the very least, we can assume they’ll first be spotted in major retailers, like Walmart and Target, hopefully early in 2020. If so, it looks like Oreo is already ramping up for the new year, since they’ve already announced Caramel Coconut and Chocolate Marshmallow arriving sometime in January. We just can’t wait to get our hands on all of 2020’s sweetest treats, starting with Churro Oreos!
