Oreo has added new accidentally-vegan Carrot Cake flavored cookies to its range.
The new treats, which are available in the US at Walmart and Target, and online in the UK as an import, feature carrot cake flavored cookies sandwiched together with a cream cheese frosting style filling
The flavor is a permanent addition to Oreo's line-up, according to People, and not a limited edition.
The cookies were tested by Instagram food reviewer Junk Banter, who said: "I'm so happy I could cry. I may not have won the $500,000 prize when I submitted this flavor for the My Oreo Creation Contest, but I couldn’t care less because Nabisco has finally paired my favorite cake with my favorite cookie to produce new Carrot Cake Oreos, available...at most major retailers.
"Bonus: this has the word 'carrot' written on it, so if your New Years Resolution was to eat more carrots and sh*t... partial credit. Note that the actual wafer is a new one, a carrot cake flavored one, and the ingredients list spice, graham flour, and corn cereal."
It's worth noting that the Oreos contain palm oil, which many vegans choose to avoid.
