Baskin-Robbins Mint Chocolate Chip Oreo is reportedly on its way in 2019
How on earth do Oreo keep up with all of these ridiculous flavours? I honestly feel like I'm writing about a new weird and wonderful flavour of the nation's favourite sandwich cookies every week. Not that I'm complaining, of course - there's no better way for me to make a living than talking about my love of Oreo - but in recent times, there's almost too much Oreo news to keep up with!
Just this December, we've already talked about Peppermint Bark Oreo, we've talked about Hot Cocoa Oreo, we've even talked about Dark Chocolate Oreo, and I'm personally still not over the arrival of Most Stuf Oreo, which we talked about back in late October.
But here's the thing, Oreo lovers - Nabisco isn't quite done with you yet, because there's another - yet another - flavour of Oreo for us to enjoy as 2018 carries over into 2019, and we've all got to go buy a new calendar for the next 12 months.
Say hello, my friends, to the Mint Chocolate Chip flavour of Oreo, brought to you with an assist from none other than Baskin Robbins - everyone's favourite ice cream joint. Okay, so we all know that Mint Chocolate Chip is by far the best flavour on offer at BR - and I will fight you on this - but have you ever had it in Oreo form?
That - exactly that - is being championed by none other than InstaFoodie @Markie_devo, who says we should probably expect the sandwich cookie's new flavour some time in 2019. Along with an artist's mockup of how the cookie will probably look, @Markie_devo explained what was going down, before speculating whether this would be the last of the Oreo/Baskin-Robbin collaborations...
"This is another 2019 drop coming from Nabisco, yes another one(Dj Khaled voice). As you may know Oreo and Dunkin did a drop, so why would Baskin be off the table(since they are basically sister companies). The date is not certain, but the product is. Mint Chocolate Chip Baskin & Robbins Oreos appear to have a chocolate wafer with a layer of chocolate/ mint with chocolate chips creme. I’m a mint loving psychopath, so these will for sure be in my mouth [sic]"
As you might imagine, people are pretty darned excited to get to sample this delicious new flavour of Oreo. Well, they will do once it comes out. "These would probably be close to amazing," says one Instagram user on the announcing post, while another goes even further in their effusive praise:
"That mintchoc chip ice cream from BR is THE BEST ice cream in the entire universe. I can't wait for this one."
Neither can I, Instagram user. Neither can I. Like with the Peppermint Bark Oreo, the Dark Chocolate Oreo and the other Oreos to be announced over the past couple of weeks, we can expect this Mint Chocolate Chip strain of Oreo cookies to be available in the new year - maybe as soon as Jan 2. That's like, three days away, you guys. How exciting.
