The treat-lovin’ masterminds over at Oreo have been rolling out all sorts of new flavors lately — hits like Apple Pie Oreos and questionable misses like Swedish Fish Oreos — but now, they’d like to know what YOU want from the classic cookies. They’ve already tried Mississippi Mud Pie Oreos, Peeps Oreos, and even Candy Corn Oreos, but if you have an A+ idea, they want it — and they’re willing to give you a whopping $500,000 in return.
Whether it’s because they’re fresh out of ideas of their own or are merely feeling charitable, the good folks over at Oreo have launched their “My Oreo Creation” contest, and the big winner will take home half a million bucks. And that’s not all: Finalists will also receive a pretty penny for their contributions, earning an impressive $25,000.
Granted, this might open them up to some rather strange pitches. We’re envisioning Avocado Oreos, Jackfruit Oreos, Charcoal Oreos, and perhaps even (gasp!) Weed Oreos, and plenty of Unicorn Oreos submissions, to boot.
Entering is simple: Just text your winning thoughts to “59526,” post it to your Twitter or Instagram page with the hashtags #MyOreoCreation and #Contest, or respond to one of the company’s posts with the same hashtags. Be sure to check out the contest page (note: Online submissions will go live on May 25) for further deets — you’ll have ’til July 14 to submit, with winners announced in August.
Better get those thinking caps on!
