Oreo and Ritz came together for an unlikely collaboration that's now introducing the world to a cookie cracker mashup that can only be purchased for a limited time. The unusual hybrid combines Ritz Crackers and Oreo Cookies into one snack in a bite-sized sandwich format.
The Ritz x Oreo snack unites the most similar features of the cookies and crackers, namely their round shape and thickness. While the Oreo side of the mashup is salty and sweet, the Ritz side takes cues from beloved peanut butter sandwiches with a smooth peanut butter-flavored creme. Together, the salty cracker and chocolate cookie in one plays homage to the classic combination of chocolate and peanut butter in a most unlikely way.
The cracker cookie hybrid is dropping online this spring and fans only need to pay a small fee to cover the cost of shipping a pack.
