If you're doing Memorial Day correctly, you'll have enough hot dogs, burgers, and beer to wipe out King Kong. And for dessert, you gotta have some s'mores. Oreo is looking out for those human messes who still can't keep melted marshmallow off their shirts with their newest cookie, the S'mores Oreo, arriving conveniently on Memorial Day weekend.
Is The Most Expensive Sundae In The World Really Worth $1000?
The S'mores Oreo (or, as you'll likely call it, S'moreo) has been rumored for a while, but is just now ready to hit the market. Each cookie comes with a combo marshmallow-chocolate filling -- and those aren't Golden Oreos you see before you. Oreo made a first-ever graham cracker cookie to complete their purist vision. We can say firsthand that it really does taste like a graham cracker, while the filling owes more than a little to Marshmallow Fluff.
The limited-edition cookies will go for $4.49 a pack, but if you play your cards right, you could get them for free. Oreo teamed up with Zipcar to hype the new flavor, which means if you reserved a car for Memorial Day weekend, you might find a surprise pack of S'mores Oreos in the backseat. May the cookie odds be ever in your favor.
