Oreo’s New Gingerbread Cookies Will Make Christmas So Much Merrier

When it comes to cookies, original Oreos will always be at the top of the list in my book. However, I’m not going to lie and say that I don’t immediately buy any variation they come out with and there are very few I haven’t loved. Just in time for the holidays this year, Oreo has released a new Gingerbread cookie that is about to fly off store shelves and into my shopping cart quicker than you can say “ho ho ho.”

  1. It’s been a long time since we’ve had Gingerbread Oreos. The first time they were sold was all the way back in 2012, which is a long time ago! While this honestly seems a shoe-in flavor for every year around the holidays, they haven’t been around for a while now and frankly, this is the energy 2020 needs.
  2. Even the packaging is super seasonal. Gingerbread is perhaps the quintessential Christmas flavor (and holiday flavor in general). It’s warmly spicy and just makes you feel all cozy and like you could curl up in a onesie on the couch watching Christmas movies while you devour an entire pack. Oreo coming out with their take on the classic flavor just means I have to spend less time in the kitchen this year, and I’m all for it.
  3. This is a whole new take on Gingerbread. While Gingerbread Oreos were originally just vanilla cookies filled with gingerbread-flavored cream, this year’s version is taking things to the next level with gingerbread-flavored cookies and vanilla cream with crunchy sugar crystals in it, which sounds even more amazing.
  4. They’re limited-edition and starting to hit stores now. Instagrammer @dcsnacksterz found a pack of Gingerbread Oreos at their local Walgreens (that store is so good for snacks!), but they’re starting to roll out wherever cookies are sold nationwide, so if you haven’t seen them already, keep your eyes peeled!
