New Oreo confirmed! And it's bigger than ever


The new Triple Double Oreo will hit store shelves this summer.

First, there was the Oreo, a humble cookie developed in 1912 by the National Biscuit Company, now known simply as Nabisco. Then came the variations: the Double Stuf, the chocolate-coated Fudge Cremes, the Mini Oreo. Now, Nabisco has confirmed to TODAY.com perhaps the most indulgent Oreo in existence — the Triple Double Oreo.

Mere rumors of the cookie innovation got the Internet buzzing. FoodBeast first broke the story with photos of the new product’s packaging from someone who supposedly does “pre-release product testing for Nabisco.” The Oreo prototype consists of not one, not two, but three layers of cookie, with one layer of the Oreo’s classic white creme filling and another made of chocolate creme.

The original leak came from Reddit user Palooz, followed by a few tweets that all claimed to have photos of the cookie. Speculation over the authenticity of the new Oreo was rampant until Basil T. Maglari, associate director of corporate affairs for Nabisco, told Today.com, “Yes, the rumors are true.”

Nabisco’s official statement: “This summer, Oreo will introduce a new 'twist' on the iconic cookie: the Triple Double Oreo. Three chocolate Oreo wafers with two layers of creme -- one classic vanilla, and one chocolate. While we tried our best to safeguard this news, we couldn't hold back the buzz.”

So there you have it. This summer, Oreo lovers will finally have something that makes the Double Stuf look healthy in comparison. Still, no matter how indulgent the prospect of three Oreo wafers stuck together with two different kinds of creme is, nothing will ever replace our county fair-style favorite: the deep-fried Oreo. That is, of course, until someone deep-fries the Triple Double.
