Oreo lovers, brace yourselves! You could win $500,000!

Today’s post is a little different. No recipe, just a little foodie to foodie chat.

OREO challenged me – and you – to come up with their new flavor in exchange for half a million dollars in cash and a trip to NYC! All you gotta do is submit your idea here and cross your fingers that it is the one chosen.

Being the foodie that I am, I’m already fantasizing about food 2/3 of my day, so this little incentive just had me thinking about all things OREO.

Now, I totally realize this is no easy task since OREO has already released so many yummy flavors.

I’m a big fan of the plain original OREOs, but coconut OREOs? My dream come true! And also my first idea going down the drain, as it is already taken…

Because I take my foodie tasks VERY seriously, I payed a visit to my local Walmart for a little OREO research. After all, how am I supposed to decide what my ultimate OREO would taste like if I haven’t tasted all the OREO flavors out there, right? ?

Coconut, Salted Caramel, Red Velvet, Lemon, Mint, Birthday Cake, Cinnamon Bun, Peanut Butter, Jelly Donut, you name it…they’ve thought of it all!

I was utterly impressed with how many OREO flavors are out there and even more impressed with the fact that I hadn’t tasted them all. Where have these OREOs been all my life?!? The sad answer: at the grocery store cookie aisle all this time, while I’m trapped in this boring pregnancy diet. ?

After trying a little of each flavor – and carefully hiding storing the rest in my hospital bag so they can be enjoyed right after I deliver our sweet baby, I realized there was one OREO flavor that is not out there yet…

FIGS! ???

Just think of it… Fig Newtons meet OREO in the most delicious flavor ever created!

What y’all think? Yay? Nay? Maybe I’m too obsessed with figs, but I’d be all over that flavor.

By all means, feel free to disagree and create your own dream flavor. And when you do, head over to OREO’s website and submit your “My OREO creation” by 7/14/17. (No purchase necessary and open to US/D.C./PR 18+.)

Just don’t steal my Figs idea because it is GENIUS. ???

Good luck! ?
