In early May, word of the yet-to-be released Triple Double Oreo cookie reached the Internet and within hours, Oreo fans were buzzing throughout social media about this new take on the iconic cookie. At long last, the wait is over. The Triple Double Oreo cookie, which combines two layers of Oreo creme, one chocolate and one original, with three layers of crunchy, chocolaty Oreo cookies, is available in stores nationwide.
To help launch the new cookie, the Oreo brand has enlisted the help of both Oreo fans and the likes of Shaquille O’Neal, Eli Manning Venus Williams and Apolo Ohno. New Oreo Double Stuf Racing League TV advertising will begin airing in early September.
“Now that I am retired I can spend more time perfecting my twist, lick and dunk skills, and with an added layer of creme and a third cookie, it’s clear that I am going to need the practice,” said O’Neal in a press release. “I am obviously the dunking expert, but I am working to figure out the best way to compete with the Triple Double Oreo cookie.”
Like O’Neal, Oreo fans can start their own lick races with the new cookie now. The Triple Double Oreo cookie is available nationwide at grocery stores starting this week with a suggested retail price of $4.19 per package. One serving (1 cookie) is 100 calories and a total of 4.5g of fat.
