Even though it's officially the first day of summer, we're already looking forward to Christmas. Junk food Instagram account Candy Hunting revealed today that Oreo Cookies & Crème Candy Canes will join the lineup of other wacky candy cane flavors this holiday season.
Sadly, we have six months left to wait for their arrival.
Candy Hunting posted about the new Oreo treats earlier today saying, "Christmas preview: New Oreo Cookies & Creme candy canes! I highly doubt these will taste like Oreos, but hey, why not brand everything with Oreo to boost sales?"
While some agreed with Candy Hunting possting comments like "that's going to be gross" and "Oreo cotton swabs coming next?" others remained more optimistic writing comments including "Christmas gonna be lit" and "finally something to look forward to in life."
While Oreo's parent company Nabisco has not confirmed the release of this new Christmas treat (we've reached out for comment, and will update when we know more), we can only assume it's real since an Oreo-flavored Christmas sounds like something to look forward to.
