Is Filled Cupcake the New Oreo Flavor? We Are on the Case

On October 1, an Instagram user posted a photo of a package of Filled Cupcake Oreos. That’s right, Hostess Cupcake-style Oreos. If these are actually hitting stores in January 2016 like the post says they will, we will die of happiness. Until then, we’re cautiously optimistic. Never in our lifetimes could we have dreamed our two favorite junk foods would come together in a joyous union.
The craziest part of the (alleged) new Oreo? Never before have they had an icing inside an icing, combining chocolate and vanilla magic. The package even suggests how to go about eating them: “Twist and lick.” Thanks for that, Oreo. We definitely needed instructions.
(We’re not quite sure what to make of smoore1224’s hashtags, which seem to embody that exact opposite of all the ideals Oreo stands for.. Some favorites: #personaltrainer #fitness #onlinecoach #fitfam #workout #gym #lift #team4evrfit #motivation #exercise #fitlife.)
Hopefully, the Oreo team can all take very long vacations soon. They’ve been doing so much recently, and we can hardly keep up. We’re still processing the existence of Red Velvet Oreos, and those came out in January. January.
