(AP)- Oreo loves to keep us on our toes.
Though it’s still early for holiday treats to start popping up in retail stores, the cookie company is getting a head start on the excitement with a new festive creation: Peppermint Bark Oreos.
So far the cookies have been spotted for purchase online at Amazon, Target and Walmart, and the Instagram account @thejunkfoodaisle saw them in stores at WinCo Foods. They rated the treats a 4.6 out of 5 stars.
Peppermint-flavored Oreos debuted around 2013, but the new peppermint bark Oreos have a distinct difference in the center creme.
The peppermint creme is combined with “crunchy sugar crystals,” giving the crunchy sensation that all peppermint bark-lovers look forward to when the holidays roll around.
