Oreo lovers, rejoice! Cereal maker Post has brought back the beloved Oreo O's after a decade off the shelves. And because everything old is new again, Night Owl Cookie Co. has released a treat containing the cereal.
The new addition to the vast Night Owl lineup is aptly called Millenni-O's and retails for $2.50. The concoction is the brainchild of owner Andrew Gonzalez. "I think there’s something so nostalgic about the Oreo cereal I enjoyed as a child making a comeback. I knew I wanted to make a cookie to honor that, but I wanted to give it a fresh twist,” the 25-year-old says.
The cookie is made with Night Owl’s signature dark chocolate dough, white chocolate filling, Oreo chunks, and a topping of Oreo O's. Gonzalez says the creation was inspired by the traditional milk-and-cereal experience, with the white chocolate drizzle representing the milk.
Though Night Owl already sells an Oreo-flavored creation, the Millenni-O's cookie is not to be confused with one of the current best sellers, cookies and cream. “Millenni-O’s is sweeter and creamier, whereas cookies and cream has a whole Oreo stuffed inside and focuses more on showcasing the Oreo,” Gonzalez explains.
Like the cereal, the new cookie is limited-edition and available only while supplies last.
