Oreo Introduces a Strawberry Frosted Donut Flavor

Seriously, how many new Oreos will we get in 2021?

No matter how you feel about them, you have to tip your cap to Nabisco. Earth could be facing some sort of extinction-level event, and they'd probably still find a way to roll out a new and unexpected flavor of Oreo. We're only a week into 2021, and already we've received news of not one, not two, but now three unique flavors arriving imminently on store shelves.

Following hot on the tail of Java Chip and Chocolate Hazelnut Oreos, there's now something for those who crave a different kind of sweetness and/or a (further) excuse to eat cookies for breakfast. That comes in the form of Strawberry Frosted Donut Oreos, which turn a bakery staple into a unique snack.

Between two vanilla or "golden" Oreo cookies, you'll find two distinct flavors of creme, making for a sort of Double Stuf Oreo divided in half. The sort of khaki-colored "donut" creme adds a little bit of background taste, but the real star is the pink strawberry frosting creme that includes glittery flecks of rainbow sprinkles. Yes, you can now get edible glitter in a glass of milk.

Oreo Strawberry Frosted Donut

If you think about it, the existence of a doughnut-flavored Oreo is a role reversal of sorts. It feels like every trendy doughnut shop has attempted some sort of Oreo-inspired creation at one point or another, so this flipping of the script feels appropriate.

Though the idea of a "donut creme" may sound a little weird (after all, what is a "donut" other than a carby vehicle for any number of other flavors?), it's arguably not the strangest new Oreo creme making the rounds. The "Brookie-O" somehow contains three creams, one of which is cookie dough. Yep, a cookie with cookie dough filling.

The Strawberry Frosted Donut Oreos will only be available for a limited time, supposedly beginning around March. Don't feel too bad if you end up missing out on them, though. At our current pace, we should see well over 100 new Oreo flavors between now and the end of 2021, so at least we've got that going for us.
