Cookie lovers rejoice!
The maker of Oreo cookies is making waves in the candy aisle with the release of a new Milka Oreo Big Crunch candy bar.
That's right, an Oreo candy bar. The new candy is a combination of Oreo cookie pieces and vanilla cream filling encased in Milka European chocolate candy.
The bars were released in time for holiday shoppers, and will be a permanent offering, according to a statement from Mondelez International, the maker of Oreo and Milka.
The company decided to pair Oreo and Milka chocolate to “diversify the Oreo product portfolio,” Samantha Greenwood, Senior Category Director, Chocolate-North America, said in a statement.
“The combination of these two global powerhouse brands has led to a product line that is unique and truly differentiated in the U.S. chocolate candy category,” she said.
The bars, which have been available overseas, will hit shelves at Wal-Mart, Kroger, ShopRite and Albertsons, this week, and will roll-out nationally in January 2017.
It's up to you whether you want to dip them in milk.
