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.

I 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...

People began to question whether Oreo even knew the flavor.

Impatient followers of the mystery flavor competition began wondering whether Oreo was just going to pick any of the popular answers at random, having no idea what they'd actually created.

A lot was riding on the announcement.

It seemed stakes were pretty high and many people were waiting in anticipation for the Oreos announcement.

Some people seriously wanted to win.

In fact, it seemed as though some people had banked on that 50k they were going to get off Oreo for guessing the flavor correctly.

The announcement divided fans.

Some people were adamant that they had been tricked. They were certain the flavor wasn't really churro...

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.

"Well actually..."
