Oreo's Newest Flavor Is a Sweet Take on a Classic Dessert

While the original Oreo will always reign as the supreme sandwich cookie, occasionally, a new Oreo flavor will emerge that's actually worthy of being dipped in your glass of milk -- like last year's red velvet flavor. And now, it looks like another genuinely good Oreo flavor is on the way, and it's based on another classic dessert: strawberry shortcake

A little more than month after unleashing new Filled Cupcake Oreos from the Oreo Wonder Vault, a package of limited edition Strawberry Shortcake Oreos was recently spotted on Instagram, according to a report by consumer blog The Impulse Buy. Here's the Instagram post showing the new cookies:
 

When reached by Thrillist, an Oreo spokeswoman said the new Strawberry Shortcake flavor is indeed coming soon -- hitting stores shelves nationwide on April 4th. But there's just one catch: the flavor will be exclusively sold at Wal-Mart stores while supplies last, so don't expect to find them on a midnight munchie run to your corner store, unfortunately. But it you're able to get your hands on them, cheers to pink milk!
