Sure, Nabisco has come up with some pretty inventive Oreo flavors (root beer float, anyone?). But their latest Limited Edition concoction, which is rolling out this week and is available exclusively at Kroger (and Kroger-owned) supermarkets nationwide, as well as on Amazon, might win for their most out-there creation. It’s a Swedish Fish Oreo—which is comprised of Swedish Fish-flavored crÃ¨me sandwiched between the classic chocolate wafers. Both brands are owned by Mondelez International. The new flavor is priced at $2.99.
For Swedish Fish fans, this may sound like a dream come true. Technically, this isn’t the first time the brand has experimented with a cookie-candy hybrid. During the 2008 holiday season, Candy Cane Oreos hit shelves, and in fall 2012, Oreo released the Candy Corn Oreo. Fruit flavors aren’t new to the brand either, which has experimented with Key Lime Pie, Watermelon, and Lemon Meringue flavors.
“We know that consumers enjoy variety when it comes to snacking, so we create all of our limited-edition flavors to provide surprising new twists people know and love and on occasion, create unexpected and unique flavor combinations that people may never have thought were possible,” an Oreo spokesperson told RealSimple.com.
Though we’re a little skeptical (how can gummy candy transform into a crÃ¨me?), we’re eager to get our hands on a package to try them out. In the meantime, we think we’ll stick to the dependable Double Stuf variety (or eating our Swedish Fish separately from our cookies).
