We Just Figured Out Oreo's Next Flavor From Twitter

When you think of dunking cookies in a glass of milk, Oreos may be one of the first that come to mind. Since hitting the shelves over 100 years ago, Oreos have become the world's most popular and beloved cookie, selling approximately 34 billion cookies each year in countless flavor varieties.

In late September of 2022, the cookie company's official Twitter account began tweeting hints at a new flavor: "Want to know the next OREO Cookie flavor? Read the first word of our last 8 tweets." The aforementioned eight tweets spelled out the message, "Our Next OREO Cookie Flavor Is Snicker Doodle."

After waiting a while to let Twitter users crack the code, the Oreo account officially confirmed the new flavor on Sep. 28. The company also announced that the new cinnamon sugar cookie-inspired flavor will arrive on grocery stores shelves across the U.S. on October 17th, 2022.
