Here's what has been going on...
Everyone loves churros.I mean, if you dislike sugar and soft doughy happiness and deep-fried crunch then maybe you won't like churros.
Instant happiness.Well I mean not instant, instant... you do have to go somewhere and purchase them, but as soon as you take a bite, well... instant happiness.
The secret to the perfect churro...is definitely in the fry. So I know what you're thinking... how do they manage to translate that distinct fried dough flavor into the cream of an oreo? Well, my friends...
Have faith in the almighty Oreo.
via: InstagramI mean these are the guys that worked out how to bring Reeses Peanut Butter Cups into the mix.
via: InstagramSeriously if you haven't tried these you should. Maple Creme Oreos really know what's going on.
The people at Oreo love a challenge.These guys are like the Willy Wonka of creme-filled cookies.
Deciding on the mystery flavor was a tough decision.I mean imagine being able to choose any flavor. It's no surprise Oreo went with the popular fried dessert, and we think this is the best collaboration since Dido and Eminem.
All over the U.S people have been guessing the flavor.The distinct flavor of a churro can be difficult to identify when it's missing it's giveaway fried dough texture.
Oreo offered a grand prize to anyone that could guess correctly.
via: InstagramAs part of the promotion, Oreo offered consumers $50,000 if they could guess the flavor correctly.
"Is it snickerdoodle flavor?"
One Twitter user was pretty close, the cinnamon sugar coating of a snickerdoodle is pretty similar to that of a churro.
@Oreo is the mystery flavor snickerdoodle? Do I win 50,000? I don’t want student load anymore, thank you.— Pumpkin Spice Latina (@Pumpkin Spice Latina)1574819812.0
So close, yet so far...
via: ShutterstockI think we can all agree, in a blind taste test it would be hard to distinguish a snickerdoodle from a churro... let alone if neither had their regular texture. Hard luck bud, guess you're gonna have to pay off your student loan after all.
People started getting impatient with Oreo.
All across America, people were bickering over whether they had guessed the mystery flavor correctly. Office workers were putting in stakes, schoolchildren were getting into fights and families were being torn apart...

The announcement divided fans.

Grahams cracker/ Churro Wars.
The fans that had been confident that the oreo filling was Graham crackers flavor were not happy with the churro announcement.
The mystery Oreo was not fuckin churro I’m sorry but it was graham cracker.— Sydney 💙 (@Sydney 💙)1575315763.0
"Well actually..."I guess the flavor is probably whatever you believe it is, right? We don't need to argue... can't we just enjoy the Oreos?
Oreo is all about love and acceptance...
via: InstagramI mean remember when they brought out those "ask my pronoun" edition cookies? Doesn't get more woke than that, eh?
Oreos has jumped on the churro bandwaggon before...
via: InstagramI think it's hard to say which I'd prefer... an oreo that tasted like a churro or a churro that tasted like an oreo. Life is full of tough decisions, I guess. Speaking of decisions, continue scrolling to read about fifty different things you can do with Oreos... where to start right?
