Ladies and gentlemen, it turns out that the long-rumored Red Velvet Oreo is an actual thing. Some people didn’t think it was, and we can’t really blame them—after all, it wasn’t so long ago that the Fried Chicken Oreo broke our hearts with its fakeness. But like Linus and the Great Pumpkin, we believed. And now, our Red Velvet Oreo dreams are hitting store shelves on February 2nd.
Oreo’s parent company, Mondelez International, is giving away 20,250 samples of its new Red Velvet Oreos from today (January 20th) through January 22nd. The contest is only available to residents of the 50 U.S. states and D.C., and you must be 18 or older to enter. Here’s the place to enter for your chance at a free package, but you’d best move quick—that giveaway lasts only three days.
This is just another example of Oreo really being in touch with what people want. While we can only wonder what could have been with those mythical Fried Chicken Oreos, those very real Chips Ahoy! cookies filled with Oreo creme were so audacious, they kept selling out everywhere. Not content with that advanced level of success, Oreo pushed its game further and developed Oreo Churros, promptly blowing minds yet again.
Just imagine something like this with Red Velvet Oreos:
This is a company that can read people—completely the opposite of Lay’s, which clearly has no clue whatsoever. If you need more proof that Oreo’s on the pulse, we’re talking about a company that set up a bunch of Oreo-themed games at the Frankfurt Airport in Germany to keep harried travelers entertained while they waited for their flights. Who does that? Three words: OREO CONNECT FOUR. Suddenly, you’re a kid again, and the world is a better place.
ICYMI, enter here to win your very own sample package of Red Velvet Oreos through January 22nd.
