Oreo has become increasingly creative. Since 1912, the popular cookie company has released over 85 kinds.
They have included Choco Caramel and Apple Pie to Swedish Fish, Cherry Coke, and Hot Chicken Wing.
The 110-year-old business debuted its new cookie after teasing fans on social media with a blacked-out Oreo packaging on a chocolate cake backdrop.
Oreo's new Blackout Cake cookie has two chocolate wafers, called "base cakes," sandwiching chocolate and dark chocolate cake-flavored crème.
It's inspired by the iconic chocolate treat. The limited-edition cookies will be available nationally starting April 3 while supplies last.
Several Oreo enthusiasts were unimpressed, noting a January 2022 taste. "Did you just rename the Ultimate Chocolate Oreo?" one Instagram user wrote on Oreo's recent photo.
"I adore chocolate, but this looks like our Ultimate Chocolate Oreo cookie with one fewer layer. Why not bring back Blueberry Pie instead of releasing a new flavor? "another said.
Some less enthusiastic admirers on social media urged that Oreo resuscitate Red Velvet, S'Mores, and Chocolate Crème Golden Oreos.
This year's second Oreo flavor is Blackout Cake. In January, the cookie behemoth released "The Most Oreo Oreo," a cookies-n-creme Oreo.
The limited-edition taste has two chocolate wafers with "Most Stuf" crème and ground-up Oreo cookie crumbs.
Oreo's cake-flavored sandwich cookie isn't new. Strawberry Cheesecake, Birthday Cake, and Carrot Cake were past offerings.
