Oreo announced it would debut the limited edition cookie on February 2 and is letting more than 20,000 get a sneak taste of the new flavor at oreoredvelvetrope.com.
The red velvet Oreo comes with cream cheese flavored creme to complete the red velvet taste.
So how do they taste? The NY Daily News got their hands on a package and opinions were varied. One taster said the flavor was "great, the cream cheese isn't overwhelming and the red coloring is subtle." Most said it was slightly sweeter and creamier but others refused to taste on principal alone.
"They basically castrated the Oreo," said one Newser. "It's lacking the chocolate bite that makes the Oreo."
