Fans of the famous sandwich cookie don’t have to scratch their heads anymore trying to solve this mystery.
Oreo has finally revealed this year’s mystery flavor: it’s churro! In September, Oreo launched the cookies with a contest asking participants to guess the flavor. One lucky fan correctly guessed the mystery flavor and the winner has been notified “directly” and will receive $50,000, Nabisco announced.
This is not the first time Oreo has released a mystery flavor. Two years ago, the cookie brand debuted cookies that were flavored like Fruity Pebbles. Other flavors of the past include Swedish Fish-flavored Oreos, red velvet cake and Peeps-flavored cookies.
This goes to show that Oreo is not shy about trying new and unusual flavors for its cookies. In the spring, Oreo announced four new flavors fans could expect this summer – Oreo Thins Latte, Marshmallow Moon Oreos, Baskin-Robbins Mint Chocolate Chip Oreos, and Maple Crème Oreos.
For the churro-flavored crème though, many fans found themselves puzzled by the cinnamon-sugar taste. Top guesses included funnel cake, graham cracker, and gingerbread.
If you have yet to try this year’s mystery flavor, make sure to do so soon before the year ends.
