At this point, it seems like the flavor creators at Oreo are working around the clock. Just this year alone, they’ve released flavors like strawberry shortcake, filled cupcake, fruity crisp, blueberry pie, and even Reese’s peanut butter cup. Now, they’ve gone above and beyond by bringing back fan-favorite flavor cookies & creme.

To get an exclusive line of Oreos on their shelves, Walmart had consumers choose between flavors caramel apple, jelly donut, and (of course) cookies & creme.
