Oreo cookies exclusively at Target. The cookies feature a watermelon-flavored creme filling, colored pink and green, sandwiched between two Golden Oreo wafers.
A 15.25-ounce package costs $2.99.
It would have been really interesting to sit in on the meeting where they came up with Watermelon Oreos. I figured it went something like this:
"Hey, summer's coming up. Let's make Watermelon Oreos!"
"Sure, why not?"
It's really a testament to the popularity of the Oreo cookie (the #1 cookie in the US), that Nabisco can make super random flavors seemingly on a whim.
The creme filling has that familiar watermelon flavor you might find in a Jolly Rancher or bubble gum. The taste strikes a good balance where I could definitely identify it as watermelon-flavored, but not so much that it overwhelmed the creme or the cookie. Still, the combination of vanilla cookie and watermelon creme is weird and doesn't really go together.
