Oreo has a brand-new treat for strawberry and doughnut lovers.
The confectionery brand recently launched a strawberry cream-filled doughnut in the U.K., and it looks a lot similar to those specialty doughnuts made by Krispy Kreme, Tim Hortons, Dunkin’, and the like.
Called Oreo Doughnut Strawberry Flavor, the sweet treat is a chocolate ring doughnut filled with strawberry-flavored pink crème, topped with white icing and tiny Oreo cookie pieces. Promising “the perfect doughnut texture where soft dough meets crunchy biscuit,” the new Oreo doughnut makes a great snack for a midday pick-me-up or a dessert after a meal.
Priced at £1.50 ($1.94) for a pack of three, Oreo Doughnut Strawberry Flavor is now available at ASDA stores across the U.K. and online.
This is the second Oreo doughnut flavor that came out in the U.K. The first Oreo doughnut flavor released in the country has a vanilla crème filling similar to the one found in original Oreo cookie sandwiches. The launch of the second flavor comes after Oreo conducted a study which found that strawberry is the second most popular flavor in bakery products in the U.K after chocolate.
There’s no word yet on whether Oreo Doughnut Strawberry Flavor will be available in the U.S. in the future.
The release of Oreo Doughnut Strawberry Flavor in the U.K. follows last week’s launch of three Oreo x Krispy Kreme doughnuts in Australia, namely Oreo Original, Oreo Chocolate, and Oreo Strawberry. Each of these limited-edition doughnuts has a cream filling and drizzled with frosting and Oreo cookies on top.
“The doughnuts are light and fluffy, filled with a light as air cream, and then covered in the OREO cookie pieces that give it an extra indulgence. We all know and love OREO cookies, which is why we are so excited to give Aussies the chance to try them out in a new and unique way,” Krispy Kreme’s Food Technologist Tasha Kaur said in a statement.
The Oreo x Krispy Kreme doughnuts are available for AUD 3.75 (USD 2.73) each or AUD 28.95 (USD 21.09) for a dozen at Krispy Kreme stores across Australia.
A doughnut similar to Krispy Kreme’s Oreo Original was released in the U.S. in June as part of Tim Horton’s new set of limited-edition Dream Donuts. Called Oreo Cookie Dream Doughnut, the $1.99 confection is a cookies-and-cream style doughnut featuring Oreo cookie pieces and a vanilla fluff icing swirl on white fondant, topped with an Oreo cookie half.
