News: New Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Creme Oreos

New Limited Edition Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Creme Oreos are now available at Walmart. The new cookies features the standard Oreo chocolate wafers with a half-and-half of chocolate creme and peanut butter-flavored creme.

The new Oreos were spotted by The Impulsive Buy and may possibly be a Walmart exclusive. They come in 12.2-oz packages for $2.98. If you've looking to try them, you may want to call ahead as the Limited Edition Oreos tend not to be stocked at all locations. Update 6/2/14: The product has since been removed from the Walmart website but will be available at retailers nationwide starting Monday, June 9, 2014.

While the Reese's name brings a certain cachet to the new cookies, they appear to just be a mash-up of the already available Chocolate Creme Oreos and Peanut Butter Creme Oreos. Unless they managed to somehow infuse the peanut butter portion with actual Reese's crumbly peanut butter, I wouldn't get your hopes up. Nabisco also already makes Peanut Butter Oreo Fudge Cremes, which, with the fudge layer that covers them, seem more like an actual Reese's. I suppose they just couldn't resist pairing America's favorite cookie with America's favorite candy bar.
