It looks like 2019 is shaping up to get a jump on the holidays even more than 2018, and TBH, I'm not mad about it. A slew of festive bites and sips are already making their way to your grocery store ahead of November, and happily enough, that includes one of Oreo's most hyped offerings from last year's holiday season. Need more info? Here's where to get Peppermint Bark Oreos to make that midweek hump a lot sweeter.
If you remember, Nabisco first introduced the festive treat last November. While I'll be the first to admit that it's hard to beat the undeniably satisfying combination of chocolate wafers and sweet creme filling, the confectioners over at the company somehow managed to do so by replacing the cookie's OG filling with something much more seasonally appropriate. Months after speculation first began that Nabisco would be bringing back Peppermint Bark Oreos again this year, I'm happy to announce that the cookies have been spotted at a number of grocery stores. Sweet-tooth identifiers, rejoice, because the holidays might as well be here already.
After several Instagram bloggers took to their accounts to reveal that they'd managed to get their hands on these bad boys pre-November, I decided to do some sleuthing of my own. It looks like you can currently get them at Target for $3.29 or Walmart for $2.98, so I'd recommend you cancel any plans for this afternoon and head to one of these retailers or order them online ASAP.
In case your taste buds needed a refresher about what to expect from this seasonal offering, you'll be getting the chocolate wafers you know and love "filled with a mouthwatering peppermint bark–flavored creme" studded with crunchy sugar crystals, per the product description. In short, it's a very welcome upgrade on Nabisco's old Peppermint Oreos. Each package comes with two of these limited-edition cookies, which are Kosher and made with real cocoa with zero trans fats, according to the product description.
As a reminder, these merry-making snacks are rolling out alongside some of the company's other popular holiday treats, including its winter design-embellished cookies filled with red icing, its White Fudge Covered Oreos, and the cream of the crop, the brand new Oreo “Gingerbread” House Kit that promises to take your love of the iconic cookie to the next level. According to an Oreos rep, this kit will range in price from $9.99 to $14.99 and come with "pre-baked chocolate cookie pieces, pre-made icing, OREO Cookies, OREO Mini Cookies, fruity gummies, and candy jewels." Eating some Peppermint Bark Oreos while you're crafting this house is sure to score you some brownie points.
It's safe to say that Nabisco is definitely upping the ante this year as far as the brand's holiday munchies are concerned, so I'd definitely keep an eye out for all of these offerings during your next groceries run and report back to the rest of us if you spot them at additional stores. We might as well forget Halloween and Thanksgiving, because winter is coming, y'all, and it's never been so easy to snack like it's December.
