Some people like salty foods, others have a sweet tooth. Some people find themselves out in the flavor wastelands, looking for something to scratch both itches simultaneously. Well, good news is on the way for them- and all of us really- because two flavorful juggernauts are combining forces to form a new taste for a limited-edition treat!
Get ready to experience the power of Ritz crackers and Oreo cookies COMBINED! It’s RITZxOREO!
Remember crossover fighting game “Street Fighter X Tekken?” Imagine instead of Ryu, Ken, and Chun-Li, it’s an Oreo cookie. And instead of King, Kazuya, and Heihachi, it’s a Ritz cracker. Also, you can eat it! Which you couldn’t do with “Street Fighter X Tekken.” Probably.
So how does a combination between a salty cracker and a chocolately cookie with cream actually work? According to Oreo Senior Brand Manager Sydney Kranzmann, this isn’t exactly out of the ballpark for the cookie producer. ““At OREO, we are constantly exploring playful ways to excite our fans, from innovative limited-edition flavors to unexpected collaborations,”Kranzmann said. “At OREO, we are constantly exploring playful ways to excite our fans, from innovative limited-edition flavors to unexpected collaborations.”
Which is very much true. Oreo has had mystery flavor editions as well as a diverse array of tastes well beyond the realm of chocolate. Personally I stand by the carrot cake variety.
Here’s what the combination will look like
One half of the treat is a Ritz cracker with peanut butter, stuck to half an Oreo with the iconic cream. So if you were concerned about how the cream itself would taste with the Ritz cracker, the peanut butter helps bring it all together. It’s a delectable looking combination. And very soon you can do more than look at it, you can give it a taste.
Starting May 26th at 12:00pm (EST), you can go to the official Oreo website and be one of 1,000 potential recipients of a free pack of the snack! All you have to do is pay $3.95 for the shipping. Well, who’s hungry? I know I am. Writing this article did not help my hunger levels. This is what happens when you write about limited-edition snack foods on an empty stomach.
