There are many mysteries that surround the Limited Edition Mystery Oreo Cookies that go beyond the unknown flavor of its creme.
For example, why does it come in a 15.25-ounce package instead of the 12.7 ounce one we now always see with limited edition varieties?
Also, why can Oreo offer $50,000 to one randomly selected grand prize winner and $10,000 to five first-place winners who guess the flavor, but have no money to give out to those of us who were freaked out about Peeps Oreo turning our poop a weird color?
The limited edition snack has chocolate wafers and a food dye-less creme, but the smell that comes out of the packaging is colorful, bright, and familiar. It smells like Fruity Pebbles, which is weird because why would Oreo again offer a fruity cereal flavor a year after Fruity Crisp Oreo. It’s not much of a mystery if it’s easy to guess for eaters.
With the first several cookies, I only ate the creme and left behind a wake of discarded chocolate wafers. The mystery creme also tastes like Fruity Pebbles, and at times like Froot Loops. But as I licked, ate, and rubbed it over my tongue, an orange and milk flavor stood out. So it got me wondering whether it could be Orange Creamsicle-flavored, which would also be a little odd because there was a Creamsicle Oreo back in 2011. Either way, the mystery creme tastes like it’s been done before.
While it saddens me that this Mystery Oreo could be a recycled flavor, I do enjoy the creme. But it’s hyper sweet and potent, so much so that it negates the chocolate wafer’s flavor whenever I eat a cookie whole. That’s surprising since a regular complaint I’ve had with several Oreo varieties is how the wafer dampens the creme’s flavor. For some, I imagine the creme will be way too sweet.
I loved Fruity Crisp Oreo, so it’s not surprising that I like these. I also love the idea of having a Mystery Oreo, so I hope there’s a new one every year. But, next year, please don’t have a mystery flavor that tastes like a previous Oreo, those lazy bastards.
Oh, one last mystery about these cookies.
Why is Limited Edition Mystery Oreo wearing white after Labor Day?

I’m thinking much of the country never got the Fruity Crisp Oreos. I know we never got em here in southern Ohio as I’ve mentioned a few times in various posts on here. So I’m glad these are out and enjoying a wider release, and in a larger package even! Here’s hoping peach pie or cobbler will be a future flavor or mystery flavor! 🙂
But then again: WHY using choclate wafers and alter the actual damn good taste of the Fruity Crisp Oreos… i think the key lies in the wafer ^^
That’s what I’m saying! But no one is even bringing up the chocolate cookie…it has to factor in somehow. It’s name the mystery Oreo flavor, not name the mystery Oreo cream flavor!
they’ve never done cheesecake oreo. the filling could be half cherry half cheesecake. yumm
Maybe Oreos pulled a Dum Dums and combined two flavors together and call it mystery flavor.
I tried these and without a doubt it’s “Fruit Loops” or whatever the generic term is. It really can’t be something else unless it’s their crappy attempt at a specific fruit flavor.
I actually really liked the flavor though. The Fruity Crisp Oreos were great but they were on the dreaded golden wafers. The flavor is way better on the chocolate wafers so I hope they keep these for a while.
It’s bubble gum.
I bought three packs today!
I told the Nabisco vendor today to pass along today that Cotton Candy Oreos need to come back!
Any chance there are multiple myster flavors? Can anyone confirm that multiple packages all taste the same, across different stores, states, etc.?

My first taste honestly is orange creamsicle! I grew up on those Popsicles and orange Julius!
Tasted them and the new taste was awful with horrid after taste. Made me feel sick I actually called company to tell them. Tastes like bubble gum that went bad.
I took the cookies to our women quilting guild and hardly nobody would try them, and the ones that did didn’t like them , I didn’t like them either. The after taste followed me all day and gave be the burps. What a disappointment , I wanted to have fun and a guessing game with them on the flavor, it was a flop. Some guessed the taste of lemon and almond. I have no idea what to guess, I tasted lemon too. I still have the cookies and don’t know who to give them too. Sorry I bought them.
I so agree.
I thought these were terrible!!! The flavor is something between Orange and fruit-loops. The chemical aftertaste lingered for much too long in my mouth and made me burp a lot. I would not recommend these stay on the store shelf. Yucky!!!
was for sure a fruity taste…maybe lemon/limeade/orange……a fruit loop taste.
