We were right! Oreo announced today that they mystery flavor they’ve been teasing us about since October is, in fact, Fruity Pebbles! Someone one out there (sadly, not us) is $50,000 richer thanks to their refined, Delish-approved palates.

The rumors are true: Oreo is coming out with a mystery flavor. It arrived at the Delish HQ this afternoon in a padlocked box. Before long, brute force took over, as people clamored to try the new treat.
“It smells very fruity — like the Axe body spray of Fruity Pebbles kind of fruity,” one editor said.
Fruity Pebbles was the unanimous decision, which is fitting, considering the brand already released a limited-edition Fruity Crisp variety — meaning they already have that recipe on lock. The creme filling has the strongest flavor, though it isn’t speckled in rainbow colors like the actual Fruity Crisp flavor. It also has chocolate cookies, instead of Golden Oreos, which tasted like your average chocolate Oreo cookies.
Essentially, it’s like a double-stuffed Oreo with a strong, Fruity Pebbles-esque flavor, though we welcome any other ideas as to what it could be (strawberry-banana smoothie? Froot Loops, as Foodbeast suggested? The Mystery Airheads flavor?!). Packages should hit Walmart stores at the end of next week.

In the last year, Oreo has released a seemingly endless list of limited edition flavors, each one wackier than the last. But they’ve truly outdone themselves this time. Or have they?
It’s hard to actually tell, because their newest flavor is a complete and utter mystery. That’s right. While the chocolate cookies will be the same, the creme filling is “mystery” flavored and Oreo is giving out $50,000 to the winner that can guess the flavor correctly, if the packaging in the photo is real.
The Junk Food Aisle, an Instagram account dedicated to new food releases, posted the photo of the package of Mystery Oreos alongside an equally mysterious caption that said, “Coming Soon! Limited Edition Mystery Oreo! Chocolate Cookies with a Mystery Flavor Creme. No specific word on where or when, but my guess is soonish.”
Oreo did not immediately respond to our request for more information about when “soonish” might actually be, but stay tuned for more information.
