Peanut Butter & Jelly Oreos Have Finally Arrived

Whether you’re feeling a little peckish, fancy a midnight snack, or just need to satisfy a craving, the Oreo will always be there. Whilst you may not think that a cookie consisting of two chocolate wafers with a sweet creme filling could be the height of culinary satisfaction, you’re wrong – Oreos are almost unfathomably delicious.

Certainly, Oreos have become a part of our lives; we were fed them with milk as children, relied on them as sustenance during our teenage years and now, we eat them every chance we get. It’s beyond me how we’re not sick of the sweet treat yet, but we need not have any fear as the brains at Oreo HQ have dreamed up the most amazing combination of them all: Peanut Butter and Jelly Oreos. Yes, you heard me correctly.

Whilst you may have been overjoyed by some of Oreo’s previous offerings, namely Jelly Donut Oreos and the red velvet flavor, you’re set to be blown away by the news that we will now be able to buy them in a peanut butter and jelly flavor.

The folks over at Junk Banter drew our attention to the exciting development, saying:

“Woke up to some porn in my inbox today. New PB&J Oreos! This has long been a dream flavor for me and is the perfect release for back-to-school season (peep that chalkboard math on the package). My intel suggests they’re exclusive to Kroger stores, which makes sense since Kroger got an exclusive last August too (the awful Swedish Fish). These will be on shelves as soon as today.”

Whilst this may be the most exciting thing to hit grocery shelves of late, there’s just one little problem… they will only be available in Kroger stores. So you have to hope that you live near one or be prepared to drive cross-country to get your fix of these novelty snacks. I’m sure they will be worth it!

Users of the internet had quite the reaction to the news with many commenting that they had been “suggesting this since the beginning” and that it is now truly “peanut butter and jelly time”:

This is not the only novelty flavor that Oreo have released recently. Junk Banter have said that we can expect another flavor to hit stores soon: Cookie Butter Oreos.

“Well it was only a matter of time. @Markie_devo has the deets on completely real, not-made-up Cookie Butter Oreos that will debut later this year. Target date is somewhere around September, stores unknown. If I squint my eyes to the limits of human capability, it appears they say “cinnamon” cookie with cookie butter flavored cream. It could also say “graham.” Doesn’t matter, my eyes are blinded with excitement and lust,” they report on their Instagram.
Well, I for one cannot wait to get my hands on both flavors. I mean, I didn’t think that anything could make my nightly routine of some Oreos and a bit of milk any better, that is until now…
