Oreo has finally revealed the taste of their mystery flavor!
If you were one of the lucky few that managed to snag a mystery Oreo pack, you probably feel like you’ve been kept in the dark for quite some time now. Well — it’s official. The mystery flavor is *drumroll please*… CHURRO!
The special edition cookies were released in September and sold in an ambiguous white package that encased classic looking Oreos inside. However, these cookies smelled and tasted strongly of a food item that was all too familiar. Angelenos are no stranger to the popular Disneyland or Alvero Street treat – we know a Churro flavored snack when we see one.

Though it’s not confirmed as to where the $50,000 cash prize winner who guessed the flavor is located, we wouldn’t be surprised to find out that they are one of our own. The Oreo website revealed that the winner of the Mystery Oreo sweepstakes has been notified directly.
In a statement to People, a representative for Oreo gave a little insight on selecting the cookie’s newest flavor. “Known for delighting street fair and carnival-goers across the globe, Churro is becoming an increasingly popular flavor trend in the U.S., which made it the perfect, playful Mystery OREO flavor to surprise fans.” They continued, “The hints of cinnamon flavor in Churro flavored creme were picked up by many supertasters. Other than Churro, popular flavor guesses included funnel cake, graham cracker, gingerbread and more.”
