A rep for the snack brand confirmed to People on Tuesday that the new Gingerbread Oreos are already on store shelves. The limited-edition holiday treat was first spotted by junk food Instagrammer @dncsnacksterz at a Walgreens in Staten Island, New York. The new flavor, however, is not a Walgreens exclusive, as a rep for the brand told Today in an email that the just-released variant is “available wherever Oreo is sold, while supplies last.”
According to its packaging, Gingerbread Oreos feature two gingerbread-flavored cookies filled with Oreo crème swirled with crunchy sugar crystals. To make snacking even more Christmassy, the golden cookies come in five festive designs, including a gingerbread man surrounded by snowflakes.

This isn’t the first time Oreo has introduced a gingerbread flavor to the market. The snack brand first released a gingerbread variant back in 2012. That version returned to store shelves around the holidays for several years, but it’s been a long time since they’ve been part of the brand’s Christmastime offerings. Unlike the new Gingerbread Oreos, the old version was made up of two golden cookies filled with gingerbread-flavored crème.
As mentioned above, the new Gingerbread Oreos are only available for a limited time, so if gingerbread is your favorite holiday cookie, then make sure to grab multiple bags on your next trip to the grocery.
The release of Gingerbread Oreos comes just a week after Snack Pop’s Halloween-themed Oreo popcorn became available at Sam’s Club.
