The 10 Greatest Oreo Flavors Of All Time (And 5 We Need, Stat)


March 6 is National Oreo Day (because obviously we need a day dedicated to the world’s favorite cookie.) To celebrate, we’re rounding up the ten greatest flavors of all time (trust us, there’s been a lot – did anyone ask for Watermelon Oreos?) and we’re also going to share our wish list for flavors that haven’t been released yet. Get your glasses of milk and your time machines (you’ll wish you could travel back in time for some of these limited edition varieties.)


1. Gingerbread


Probably trying to capitalize on the Gingerbread Latte craze at Starbucks, these seasonal holiday cookies appeared in 2012-2013.

2. Red Velvet


Although you can still find these in some places, red velvet was one of our personal favorites. Perfect for February / Valentine’s Day (but really all the time.)

3. Fruit Punch


2014 was essentially the year Oreo lost their damn minds, and we’re not entirely sure what this flavor was about. It definitely tasted like a Hawaiian Punch or Capri Sun.

4. Root Beer Float


This limited release first appeared on the scene in July 2014, and we’d like to shake the hand of whoever thought it up. We like your style.

5. Cinnamon Bun


Cinnamon Bun is one of the most recent interesting flavors to appear on the scene. However, tbh, we’re more interested in that glazed cinnamon bun in the background that is clearly upstaging the cookie itself.

6. Key Lime Pie


This summery dessert flavor was released into the wild in July 2015. They kind of remind us of those lemon Girl Scout cookies.

7. Pumpkin Spice


PSO (the Oreo version of PSL) debuted in Fall 2014, to join the realm of a zillion other pumpkin flavored products on the market. These went perfectly with our Uggs and scarves.

8. Birthday Cake


Time out – who remembers Birthday Cake Remix from Coldstone? Anyone whoever got that flavor in high school while hanging out at the mall on Friday night knows that birthday cake anything is guaranteed to be delicious.

9. Neapolitan Triple Doubleoreotripledoubleneapolitan_500

There’s reason to think that someone might have been on some kind of mind-altering substances when inventing this flavor. We can just see it now: “Whoa guys! You know what would be amazing? Like three Oreos in one!” The triple double (which, like, doesn’t even make sense) Neapolitan Oreos came on the scene in 2012.

10. Brownie Batter


We’re finishing with a newfound classic, the Brownie Batter Oreo. Although originally intended to be a limited edition, these double chocolate Oreos can still be purchased at stores today. And BTW they totally do taste like brownie batter, without the risk of salmonella.

And now…the cookies that we’d like to see (aka FREE IDEAS, Oreo!) 

1. Nutella

Think of the beautiful relationship that would ensue if Oreo and Nutella got married. We’ll just let your taste buds do the imagination work for you.

2. Bacon

Full disclosure, we’re both (mostly) vegetarian, but we’re kind of intrigued by the bacon-as-dessert movement. We’re assuming that a bacon-flavored Oreo wouldn’t actually have any real bacon, so we could get behind this idea.

3. Cheesecake

This is kind of a no-brainer and we’re not sure why it hasn’t happened yet. Graham cracker cookies + cream cheese frosting filling = cheesecake in Oreo form. You’re welcome.

4. Strawberry Shortcake

Although the fruit-flavored Oreos haven’t been as possible as the chocolate varieties, we think this one might be a hit. The catch would be to have the filling consist of both strawberry and vanilla frosting.

5. Espresso Chip

Take a hint from ice cream manufacturers all over the world – coffee and chocolate just go together. And if by some miracle, this flavor could also contain caffeine, it would be a win-win all around.

Tell Us: What’s your favorite flavor of Oreo? What kind would you like to see on the shelves?
