Oreo is launching a Tiramisu flavour in 2020

Oreo has announced that it is launching a new Tiramisu flavor this year.

Writing as a fan of the slightly boozy and perfectly creamy dessert, this announcement is music to my ears, especially now that we live in an age where people are coming up with increasingly inventive ways to eat their Oreos.

While Oreo has been relatively tight-lipped about its new addition, we do know that it will be available for purchase in early 2020. Based on the packaging, it looks like the new treat will contain the brand's signature cookies and two layers of creme, which Oreo has dubbed Tiramisu-flavored creme.

Now, as Tiramisu is traditionally made from mascarpone creme and coffee-dipped ladyfingers, it's a pretty safe bet that one layer of creme will be coffee-flavored and the other will be classic vanilla.

The exciting announcement was first made public by eagle-eyed Oreo fans on Instagram, including @TheJunkFoodAisle, who shared pictures of the new flavor's packaging.

"Now these would have been a good Mystery Oreo for 2020," one person said.

"Omg my two favorite desserts combined," another said.

Oreo has confirmed that the Trimasu flavored treats will be hitting the shelves in April 2020. However, if you happen to be in certain countries, you can get your hands on them early as they already exist in South Korea, as per Delish.

In short, it's an coffee-loving Oreo fan's dream come true, and I for one can't wait to try it. Meanwhile, in other Oreo-related news, Oreo announced earlier in December that its new mystery flavor was Churro Creme.

Oh, and this month, we have Chocolate Marshmallow and Caramel Coconut Oreo cookies being released this month and we are being treated to return of Most Stuf Oreos.

If this is anything to go by, 2020 is already a great year for those with a sweet tooth!
