That’s Right, Oreo O Cereal is Back!!
Now unlike some of the other things I have talked about here before, the Oreo Cereal wasn’t discontinued all that long ago actually.
Oreo O cereal was originally released in 1997 and ran all the way until it’s discontinuation in 2007, allegedly due to a branding dispute that rendered further production impossible. It did have some availability in just South Korea for a short while in the last few years, but ultimately again was discontinued.
That has all Changed However…
Oreo O Cereal is available to buy yet again, at least for the summer anyways. This time the cereal is a Walmart exclusive product, but is also available through Amazon due to resellers. Hopefully there will be enough sales to keep it as a long term item, but only time will tell.
How are Oreo O’s since the return?
Time to get down to what is important. Are they any good?
Short answer, YES! The cereal is almost identical to what I remember from the original release. Looks quite like an apple jack with a palate swap to be honest. Just instead of the traditional Apple Jack colors, now a brown O with white specs.
Unlike many other novelty snacks and candies, Oreo O Cereal actually tastes a good bit like an Oreo cookie. Maybe not as strong in the chocolate sense, but still great none the less. The milk actually adds quite a lot, simulating dunking your cookie in milk. (yes I know it is cereal, and that should be obvious…)
Where to buy?
Walmart has exclusivity in the shipments, so definitely check your local store. Otherwise you can buy Oreo O Cereal online at Amazon.
Just make sure to get it while it lasts, because who knows how long it will be this time…
