Oreo is letting fans come up with its next flavors

Firework Oreos arrive in stores today

It's not like I ever need a reason to go to the store and pick up a pack of Oreos, but when there's a new flavor out, I mean, how can you not? These new Oreos feature red and blue candy chunks mixed into the traditional sandwich filling you'd expect in an Oreo.

It's a nod to the Fourth of July that's only available for a limited time. While you may be confused, at least it's not an Oreo-flavored Oreo this time.

Oreo also announced a social media contest as they search for their next flavor idea.

The company will choose three finalists - who will each win $25,000 - to see their idea hit retail shelves in May 2018, before the final victor is chosen by fan vote in July.

The limited edition Firework Oreos are set to hit stores nationwide today. That's a lot of money for a couple minutes of cookie musing. That's right - the meme is becoming a reality, proving that if you joke hard enough on the internet, your dreams really can come true (just ask any YouTuber).

Can't think of what flavors would make a good Oreo creation? The Oreo Wonder Vault has truly #blessed fans with this one: it has the classic chocolate wafer together with popping candy creme. Meanwhile, Oreo is asking fans to choose its next flavor for a chance to win a half million dollar prize.
