The limited edition Mystery Oreo was released as a brand promotion for cookie lovers everywhere to submit their guess as to what the mystery flavor is for a chance to win 50,000 dollars. While the cookie tastes exactly the same as a regular Oreo, the cream filling seems to have been overly sweetened in order to make the flavor stronger, resulting in a headache-inducing and unfortunately addicting creation that has left tasters with a solid guess.
The cream has an oddly familiar flavor, reminding many of their childhood favorite cereal: Fruit Loops or Fruity Pebbles. Some Oracle staffers argued that the cream had hints of orange, Key lime pie, and even Snicker-doodle, but they may be the only ones who taste these flavors as the majority of participants across the Internet have come to a unanimous decision of the taste, especially due to the cookie’s strong aroma.
Watch the YouTube video above to see what the Oracle staff thinks of the limited edition cookie’s flavor.
