Oreo introduces snickerdoodle flavor
Nabisco, a division of Mondelez International, Inc., is launching a snickerdoodle flavored Oreo cookie for a limited time this fall and winter.
Made using snickerdoodle flavored Oreo biscuits, the interior of the classic cookie sandwich will be filled with cinnamon flavored crème blended with crunchy red and green sugar crystals.
The company initially announced the flavor through a social media strategy designed to engage Twitter users. When put together, the first words of the last eight Tweets from the Oreo account spelled out, “Our Next OREO Cookie Flavor Is Snickerdoodle.”
Available nationwide Oct. 17, the LTO snickerdoodle Oreos will be on shelves as long as supplies last.

Dairy-free dessert company NadaMoo! is expanding with Frozen Snack Bites, a small frozen dessert.
The dairy frozen bites are available in five flavors: salted caramel, mint, peanut butter, mango and orange crème.
The non-GMO and gluten-free certified dessert contains about 50 to 70 calories per serving and are available in 6-count bags for a suggested retail price of US$5.69.
