After almost three months of guessing and waiting, Oreo has finally revealed its mystery flavor for 2019, and it’s none other than churro.
Oreo made the reveal on Monday, noting that the winner of the sweepstakes has already been notified.
Launched on September 16th, the latest Mystery Oreo flavor sweepstakes let fans submit their guesses on the new flavor on MysteryOREO.com until November 10th for a chance to win $50,000. Fans were allowed to submit one new guess every single day, so each guesser had 25 chances to get the correct answer. The grand prize winner was selected at random from all of the correct answers.
To help cookie lovers get the correct answer, Oreo released three Mystery Oreo packs with different clues on each. The cookie brand also dropped hints on its official Facebook page and MysteryOREO.com during the entire duration of the contest.
Though Nabisco, the maker of Oreos, didn’t reveal how many fans got the correct answer, it revealed that funnel cake, graham cracker, and gingerbread were the most popular guesses. Other guesses, meanwhile, were mostly along the lines of something sweet and cinnamon-y like French toast and snickerdoodle cookies.
Though the guessing game had already ended last month, the limited-edition flavor is still available at retail stores nationwide while supplies last.
The first-ever Mystery Oreo flavor was released in the summer of 2017, and in December of that year, it was revealed to be Fruity Pebbles. Given the release years of the first two mystery flavors: 2017 and 2019, it looks like Oreo is going to do the sweepstakes every other year.
