A new, thinner version of the classic Oreo cookie will be hitting supermarket shelves throughout the nation on July 13. Oreo Thins are described as a “light, crisp, and delicate” spin on the old-school Oreo–in fact, the new Oreo is about 7.5mm in thickness, while the classic Oreo is about 12.5 mm in thickness.
An Oreo spokesperson noted that while Oreo Thins will be a bit slimmer, they have a comparable “creme to cookie ratio” to the classic cookies. Also, while Oreo Thins boast fewer calories than your old-school Oreo, the spokesperson noted that new cookie shouldn’t be viewed as a “diet” treat. Interestingly, Oreo Thins are being marketed as a more sophisticated snack–something you could pair with coffee or tea. They aren’t meant to be twisted or dunked—because those barbaric activities are for commoners.
The new cookies will come in original, mint and “golden” flavors.
