Okay, everyone remain calm, but rumour has it Oreo are adding a Nutella-style flavour to its popular biscuit range.
While the news has yet to be confirmed, an image showing the packaging for the limited edition product has surfaced online – and sweet-lovers around the world are beyond excited.
The photo began circulating after it appeared on the junkbanter Instagram, (a page devoted to exciting flavours and limited edition confectionery products), along with the caption:
“They can’t call them Nutella Oreos, but I can! Nutella Oreos are on the horizon. Timeframe unknown. This is not a joke. The photo quality is.”
Needles to say, people went wild at the thoughts of this glorious combination, with one user commenting: “OK is this for real cause my son and I want to know if I have to change career and become a thief, especially since I live in the only place on earth where we can't get anything good lol.”
Another wrote: “AHHHHHH!!!!! This is the best thing I have seen all year!”
If it's true, the flavour creators at Oreo deserve a massive raise – especially seeing as they recently revealed a new chocolate brownie flavour after fans were asked to tweet what their dream Oreo combination using the hashtag #myOREOCreation.
Fingers crossed these bad boys will be hitting our shelves sooner rather than later!
In the world of sweet treats, Oreo cookies are definitely on the top ten list.
And now, you can add them to anything.
The creator of the Cronut recently teamed up with the cookie brand to make Oreo Cookie Spread, and it looks totally delish.
Dominique Ansel (who we basically want to marry) created the spread in promotion of the #MyOreoCreation contest, a social media contest that lets Oreo lovers submit their idea for the next cookie flavour.
The spreadable dark chocolate ganache is infused with broken Oreo biscuit, and it even has a layer of milk ganache in the middle.
It's recommended to go on crepes and shortbread cookies, but come on… we're going to lash it on everything.
Unlucky for us though, it's only available in New York at the moment, and you can get it for FREE at Dominique Ansel's Bakery this week.
If you know an Oreo lover heading over to NYC, they need to see this now.
We're partial to an occasional (read: daily) treat around these parts. And certainly we're always in the market for a new, delicious sweet-treat that we can create at home.
Because on a delicate Sunday evening after a weekend of socialising, we'd rather not venture outside unless totally compelled to do so (Zombie apocalypse or similar).
Thus – welcome to our world, deep friend Oreos. We're not the only ones getting in on the act either – the hashtag #deepfriedoreos is increasingly taking over social media.
Apparently it's something of a carnival/festival stable in the US, and certainly this is one American cuisine we're terribly glad is branching out on to these shores.
Here's the best recipe that we've come across – and make sure to email the results to email@example.com…
- 125g pancake mix
- 250-350mls of milk
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vegetable oil
- 18 Oreo cookies
- Oil for frying
- Icing sugar
- Add oil to a large skillet or deep fryer so that it's at least 5cm deep. Heat the oil to 175C.
- Line a separate baking sheet with several layers of paper towels.
- In a bowl mix together pancake mix, milk, egg, and vegetable oil until a batter is created.
- Dip each Oreo in the batter and using a slotted spoon or tongs, place the Oreo into the hot oil and fry for 2 to 3 minutes or until the dough is golden brown.
- Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and transfer to the paper-towel-lined baking sheet to let any excess oil drain.
- Serve with a dusting of icing sugar.
The pumpkin-spice trend is on fire right now!
