The newest flavored Oreo takes inspiration from desserts and pastries with a cinnamon bun taste that recreates the flakey and icing-covered treat with a golden cookie and cream filling. The new flavor is part of the recent Oreo branding to expand the chocolate cream cookie sandwich to embrace new and unlikely flavor combinations.
Along with red velvet, cotton candy and S'more Oreos, the Cinnamon Bun Oreos offer a twist on the classic cookie sandwich with an added experimentation of flavor. While Oreos are typically a chocolate cookie, the Cinnamon Bun flavor opts for a vanilla and cinnamon-infused dough topped with a cream cheese frosting in the centre. According to food blog Eater, the Oreos are meant to replicate the pastry's iconic flavor with a "fresh-from-the-oven" taste.
