Oreo is the cookie that keeps on giving, and we are forever grateful for its generous ways.
In all seriousness — never before have I seen a treat that consistently rolls out good news. This time, it's about a sweet flavor the company is re-releasing.
Just last week, Oreo pumped us up for summer with the announcement of its limited-time Firework flavor and had us making premature Fourth of July plans. Grab the burgers, dogs and "fireworks."
Then, our beloved cookie decided to give back with a new flavor contest. If you use the hashtags #myoreocreation and #contest on Instagram or Twitter with your cookie concoction, you have a chance to be considered.
Oreo will select three finalists, all of whom will see their ideas on shelves next year. These runner-ups will be awarded $25,000.
If you think that sounds like a pretty sweet deal, wait till you hear about the grand-prize. The first-place winner, who will be chosen by the masses, will be awarded half a million dollars.
Oreo, I see why you're milk's favorite cookie.
But I digress (especially when it comes to sweets).
We received even more delightful news about a flavor that's undoubtedly a fan-favorite: Blueberry Pie.
Apparently, it was released last summer and people loved it so much that Oreo is bringing it back.
If this isn't the perfect accompaniment to your summer BBQ (which of course will include Oreo's Firework flavor as well) then I'm not sure what is.
According to Instagram, Junkbanter gave us the 4-1-1 in a new post.
I'm about to make many of you ecstatic, and many of you furious. The good news: Blueberry Pie Oreos will make their return in 2017. The bad news: they're exclusive to Supervalu chains, which also include Shoppers, Cub Foods, Farm Fresh, Shop 'n Save and Hornbacher's, all stores that sound completely made up. They will ship the week of June 5th. Don't shoot the messenger, but if you wanna kiss me on the mouth then I'm cool with it. These were one of the best Oreos ever created.
So, there you have it. The limited-time flavor is being released the week of June 5, but only retailers such as Shoppers, Cub Foods, Farm Fresh, Shop 'n Save and Hornbacher's will carry it.
Don't think of it as a tease, think of it as an opportunity to get your hands on something you thought was long-gone.
Also, if you're entering the contest and selected Blueberry Pie as your choice, I'm hear to tell you to rethink your strategy. You're welcome.
Happy snacking, cookie monsters!
