Carrot Cake Oreos are finally here, so you can start off 2019 in the right way

2018 was a long, dark and difficult year, but toward the end of it, we saw some hope at the end of the tunnel. I already turn to Oreo in times of trouble, and toward the back end of last year, those inimitable sandwich cookies gave me something to look forward to in 2019.

Well, some things to look forward to in 2019: namely, a ton of new flavours to enjoy. Not only did we have Most Stuf Oreo to look forward to, but Peppermint Bark, Dark Chocolate and Hot Cocoa Oreo as well - all due in early January. Which, as you'll notice, is pretty much now, folks.

But the flavour I personally was looking forward to sampling this year was the Carrot Cake flavour of Oreo, and honestly, aren't you? We've tried a lot of different types of Oreo over the years, and although they're all delicious, I couldn't even begin to imagine what a carrot cake version of the cookie would taste like.

"I dig these, and any carrot cake or gingerbread lovers will too," says Foodstagrammer @phatfood.

"Having my cake and eating my cookies too! They flavored the cookie once again AND the creme. Reminds me of one of my favorites, Gingerbread @oreo, but with a creamier and softer creme center with a nice hint of cream cheese."

These amazing cookies were reportedly dreamt up by Instagram user @junkbanter, who says they submitted the flavour to Nabisco via the My Oreo Creation Contest. Needless to say, they were pretty stoked to have been chosen.

"I’m so happy I could cry. I may not have won the $500,000 prize when I submitted this flavor for the My Oreo Creation Contest, but I couldn’t care less because Nabisco has finally paired my favorite cake with my favorite cookie to produce new Carrot Cake Oreos, available today at most major retailers!

Bonus: this has the word “carrot” written on it, so if your New Years Resolution was to eat more carrots and sh*t... partial credit. Note that the actual wafer is a new one, a carrot cake flavored one, and the ingredients list spice, graham flour, and corn cereal. These aren’t limited edition either! My website reviews will resume on Monday and this will surely be first up."

Complete with a creamy cheese frosting filling that simply has to be tasted to be believed, the Carrot Cake Oreo is just one in a long line of cake-themed Oreo flavours. Who could forget about Red Velvet, Birthday Cake or Strawberry Shortcake Oreos? I couldn't, that's for sure.

Well, where can you pick up the latest flavour of these delightful sandwich cookies? Well, like for most things Oreo, Target is a wonderful place to start, where you can get them for $2.99. Don't know about you, but I can't wait to try Carrot Cake Oreo, plus all the different kind of Oreo cookies at my disposal. 2019 is off to a really good start, don't you think?
