Any time new Oreos (especially mystery-flavored ones) or special edition M&Ms hit the shelves, the foodie world loses its collective minds. Well, what if we told you that Oreo cookie-inspired M&Ms might be making their way to a grocery aisle near you? *Cue mayhem.*
The M&Ms, called Cookies & Screeem, were spotted by food blog Junk Banter and look to be a Halloween season special. Other than the standard delectable candy shell, the M&Ms will also feature a layer of dark chocolate wrapped around a white chocolate filling.
Fellow junk food Instagram account The Junk Food Aisle spotted the goodies at Target, and Junk Banter confirmed that the treats are a bulls-eye-store exclusive. The blog also pointed out that, interestingly enough, the M&Ms don’t taste like Oreos until after you eat them. When they’re in your mouth, they mostly taste like dark chocolate, but the aftertaste makes it clear what Mars was going for.
What do you think of the new M&Ms flavor? Have you tried Cookies and Screeem? Tell us @BritandCo!
