Oreo fans, stop what you’re doing right now – because the company has just released a new product that we all never knew we needed until right now.
However, before you sit and think it’s just some bog-standard drinking powder, then just know that Oreo decided to give themselves an edge over everyone else, and they added ACTUAL COOKIE BITS to it. Hot diggity damn.
So where can you find this delicious new drink, I hear you ask? Well, a spokesperson for Kerry Foods (the people behind the product) told PopSugar: Food Lion, Hy-Vee, Southeastern Grocers, Albertsons and Woodman’s Markets are just some of the grocers that carry Oreo Drink Mix. You can also order the mix from Amazon for about $12.If you’re in the UK (like myself) then it’s a bit of heartbreaking news for us across the pond, as it hasn’t yet been announced to be released in ANY of our supermarkets.
Don’t worry though, as always with these kind of products, if we make enough noise about it on social media then we’re likely to get it brought over to our country. Just look at the Heinz Mayochup as an example.
Oreo is also releasing the ‘most stuffed biscuit ever’, so if you’re a fan of the filling then you’re in for a real treat.
The Junk Food Aisle managed to get their hands on an image of the new biccie, and it looks incredible…
One fan wrote: “I thought it was ice cream sandwich. Would be nice if Oreo sold creme alone”, while another added: “That’s cool, but can they make ones that are the original cookie size but with the amount of filling as the thins? Because I HATE the filling!”. Mixed responses, there.
In other sweet-related news, M&M’S is introducing a new range of chocolate bars, and they’re due to be here permanently.
They’re available to buy as of December 2018.

If you have a sweet tooth, then I’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that McDonald’s is selling a chocolate salted caramel pie and it looks absolutely delicious. The bad news is that it’s only available to those of you who are currently in Malaysia.
The pie is described as: “warm chocolate and salted caramel filled in a crispy pie shell, the Salted Caramel & Chocolate Pie is truly a delight!”
And it does look incredible…
The pies are available all October, and there’s also a load of other salted caramel, coffee, and chocolate-themed items, such as a salted caramel McFlurry and Sundaes.
This comes after Turns McDonald’s fans were left furious when the fast food giant wiped its strawberry and toffee ice cream sundaes from the menu.
Yep, you heard right.
The sundaes disappeared from menus across the country from September 26, seemingly without warning.
Restaurant bosses explained the decision had been made as the desserts “weren’t very popular”.
The 99p sundaes were around way before the popular McFlurry, though it seems the latter have placed the final nail in the coffin.
Still, it hasn’t stopped customers complaining about the loss, upset that they didn’t get to say a final goodbye.
I can’t believe toffee sundaes are gone from @McDonaldsUK. I didn’t get a chance to have one for the last time. 😥

McDonald’s got rid of toffee and strawberry sundaes and I’m RAGING @McDonaldsUK

Responding to one of the complaints on Twitter, McDonald’s confirmed that the sundaes were now a thing of the past.
Hi, the Toffee Sundae and Strawberry Sundae were removed from the McDonald’s menu on Wednesday 26th September 2018, and they were removed because they weren’t very popular. The Government recommendations regarding sugar also played a part in the removal.
