Triple Oreos

New Oreo confirmed! And it’s bigger than ever

First, there was the Oreo, a humble cookie developed in 1912 by the National Biscuit Company, now known simply as Nabisco. Then came the variations: the Double Stuf, the chocolate-coated Fudge Cremes, the Mini Oreo. Now, Nabisco has announced perhaps the most indulgent Oreo in existence — the Triple Double Oreo.

Mere rumours of the cookie innovation got the internet buzzing. FoodBeast first broke the story with photos of the new product’s packaging from someone who supposedly does “pre-release product testing for Nabisco”. The new Oreo consists of not one, not two, but three layers of cookie, with one layer of the Oreo’s classic white creme filling and another made of chocolate creme.

Speculation over the authenticity of the new Oreo has been confirmed by Basil T Maglari, associate director of corporate affairs for Nabisco, who told, “Yes, the rumours are true.”

Nabisco’s official statement: “This summer, Oreo will introduce a new ‘twist’ on the iconic cookie: the Triple Double Oreo. Three chocolate Oreo wafers with two layers of creme — one classic vanilla, and one chocolate. While we tried our best to safeguard this news, we couldn’t hold back the buzz.”

As one commentator, Keith Wagstaff on TodayFood puts it: “This summer, Oreo lovers will finally have something that makes the Double Stuf look healthy in comparison. Still, no matter how indulgent the prospect of three Oreo wafers stuck together with two different kinds of creme is, nothing will ever replace our county fair-style favorite: the deep-fried Oreo. That is, of course, until someone deep-fries the Triple Double.”
