Oreo Gave Out $50K For Guessing A Cookie Flavor — It's Time To Start Studying For Next Time

If you're not familiar with Oreo's mystery cookie saga, let me catch you up to speed. In September, Nabisco (Oreo's parent company) announced that they'd be selling a "mystery cookie" in stores that looks just like the OG Oreo cookies but tastes completely different. The brand promised to award $50,000 to the Oreo enthusiast who guessed the correct cookie flavor.

Alas, many have tried to win this cash prize by eating as many mystery-flavored Oreos as possible once they hit store shelves on September 16 ( a great excuse to binge on Oreo cookies) but few were able to deduce the cookie's correct flavor profile.

Just yesterday the company revealed that this year's mistery cookie is churro-flavored, making one lucky customer $50,000 richer (sorry guys, the winner has already been notified.) According to Nabisco, popular guesses were gingerbread, funnel cake, and graham cracker - needless to say, everyone caught on to the cookie's cinnamony, sugary taste.

You might not have guessed the right flavor or won the hefty money prize, but a bag of the limited-edition churro-flavored Oreos sounds like a pretty good consolation prize to us. You can buy these from Walmart, Amazon, or at your local grocery store. Hurry while supplies last!

Not much of a churro fan? Don't worry, Oreo has other yummy flavors coming soon. The brand announced the arrival of two new Oreo flavors in 2020: Chocolate Marshmallow (stuffed with real marshmallow pieces!) and Caramel Coconut. They also have an incredibly cute Oreo Holiday Cookie House Kit that gives your parents' OG gingerbread house a run for its money, you can get it on Amazon here.

Take a break from your holiday shopping, grab a glass of milk and enjoy your favorite Oreo cookies, whatever they are! Who knows, maybe next time YOU'll be the one to guess the right flavor.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
