NEWS: When Life Gives Nabisco Lemons, They Make Limited Edition Lemon Twist Oreo

Written by | October 3, 2012

Topics: Cookies, Nabisco, Oreo


What a year it’s been for new limited edition Oreo cookies. The year started with Birthday Cake Oreo, spring brought us Oreo Rainbow Shure-Bert, and Nabisco recently released Candy Corn Oreo cookies. It’s been an eventful 100th anniversary for the Oreo cookie. But Nabisco isn’t done. There’s now Limited Edition Lemon Twist Oreo.

The sandwich cookie features Golden Oreo cookies with a lemon filling.

If you’re an Oreo historian, you’d know Oreo once had a lemon variety in the 1920s, but it was quickly discontinued. There was also a lemon filling Oreo released in Japan.

Cookie Madness reviewed the new Lemon Twist Oreo and then made a bad ass pound cake with it.

    I tried these and they are pretty good. I wish the lemon was a bit more tart to counter the cloying sweetness but my kids ate them and asked for more! They don’t leave the greasy mouth feel some of the others do which is very nice. I am surprised this wasn’t released in spring. And when are they going to do a pumpkin Oreo???
    I miss the creamsicle ones those are the best.

    I wish they would make these regular….they are great! could be a touch more lemony tart….but it would be great to have the variety!
