Oreo Swedish Fish Flavored Cookies Are A Real Thing


There’s a new Oreo mashup that combines the classic chocolate cookies with a Swedish fish-flavored filling. It’s one of the most bizarre-sounding flavor combinations that Oreo has ever come out with, and people are very curious about how it tastes.

There is a catch…the Swedish fish Oreos are only available at Kroger stores and will be rolling out this week.

“We know that consumers enjoy variety when it comes to snacking so we create all of our limited-edition flavors to provide surprising new twists people know and love and on occasion, create unexpected and unique flavor combinations that people may never have thought were possible, including our latest from the Oreo Wonder Vault, Swedish Fish Flavored Creme Oreo Cookies,” an Oreo spokesperson shared.

Girl Scouts Unveil 2 New S’mores-Inspired Cookies


Want s’more Girl Scout cookie flavors? Today is National S’mores Day and the Girl Scouts are introducing two new s’mores-inspired cookies to the mix.

First up is a chocolate-coated version, made of a crispy graham cookie dipped in crème icing and dunked in chocolate. It’s also vegan.



The second is a sandwich-style cookie made of two crunchy graham cookies with a chocolate and marshmallowly filling.



Both versions of the ooey-gooey campfire favorite are coming in 2017.

The new cookies are a nod to “the adventurous spirit, love of the outdoors, and feeling of community synonymous with Girl Scouts,” Sylvia Acevedo, interim CEO of the Girl Scouts of the USA, said in a press release.

The campfire tradition of making s’mores was popularized by Girl Scouts as early as the 1920s, according to the organization. One of the first published recipes for s’mores was in a 1925 issue of Girl Scout Leader magazine under the name “Some More.”

The cookies are the first new addition to the Girl Scout cookie lineup since 2015 when Rah-Rah Raisins and two gluten-free cookies, Toffee-tastic and Trios, were unveiled.

The Girl Scouts announced the new flavors today on “Good Morning America” as the organization approaches the 100th anniversary of the first-known sale of Girl Scouts cookies.

The beef is layered with chopped tomatoes, onions, lettuce, and pickles, topped with a creamy queso sauce and wrapped in a flour tortilla.

Burger King has wanted to take a stab at Tex-Mex food for a while, according to the company’s president, Alex Macedo. The Whopperito will cost $2.99 by itself and $4.99 as part of a combo meal.

Contest Seeks Unique Cheetos Shapes For Museum


Cheetos’ fans are encouraged to submit photos of “uniquely shaped” Cheetos — basically, ones resembling famous landmarks or people, or animals or objects.

Through Aug. 15, U.S. fans 13 and older can submit a photo of their special Cheetos shapes, along with a title and description of the snack piece, at CheetosMuseum.com.


Entries will be judged weekly based on visual interest, “buzzworthiness” and creativity. Each week for 10 weeks, one winner will be awarded a $10,000 prize and have his/her work featured on the “museum” site and in a real-life exhibit later this summer. Consumers will then vote from among the four weekly winners with the highest scores to determine a grand prize-winner, who will receive an additional $50,000, as well as glory on the site.

Burger King Announces Mac ’n Cheetos


Burger King will begin selling deep-fried sticks of macaroni and cheese encrusted in Cheetos-flavored breading, part of a trend toward blending fast food with well-known snack brands.

The new product, called Mac ’n Cheetos, emerged from a partnership with PepsiCo Inc.’s Frito-Lay. Mac ’n Cheetos will be sold for about eight weeks or until supplies run out, said Burger King, which is part of Restaurant Brands International Inc. The $2.49 five-pack of portable macaroni-and-cheese bites are similar to mozzarella sticks. The item, which has 310 calories, has already appeared at some Burger King restaurants in a trial phase.

“We’re partnering up with one of Americans’ favorite brands,” Alex Macedo, president of North America at Burger King, said in an interview. “It’s quite unique.”

Chipotle Unveils Chiptopia Summer Rewards Program


Chipotle Mexican Grill today unveiled its Chiptopia Summer Rewards, a three-month-long promotion that begins July 1, 2016.

From July through September, customers participating in Chiptopia can earn free rewards simply by eating the food they already love. Chiptopia is not a typical rewards program. Rewards are not based on the total amount a customer spends, or on accumulating points. Instead, Chiptopia rewards customers for making multiple paid visits to Chipotle within a given month.

“We created Chiptopia to reward our most loyal customers who continue to support our efforts to cultivate a better world,” said Mark Crumpacker, chief creative and development officer at Chipotle. “While Chiptopia Summer Rewards lasts just three months, we will be carefully listening to our customers and using what we learn as we consider the design of an ongoing rewards program.”

Chiptopia Summer Rewards offers three different status levels: Mild, Medium and Hot. Just four visits, with a qualifying purchase during each, earns Mild status and a free entrée. Someone who achieves the Hot level in all three months can earn up to nine free entrées over the course of the rewards program, plus a $240 “Catering for 20” Bonus Reward.

– To participate, customers can visit any U.S. Chipotle starting July 1 to pick up a Chiptopia card.
– Customers then earn credit toward the various status levels for individual visits within the same month during which they spend a minimum of $6 before tax.
– During each month of the program, a customer’s fourth, eighth and 11th visit and entrée purchase triggers a reward for one free entrée and elevates the customer to a new status level.
– Redeemed rewards also count as a purchase toward reaching the next status level. Thus, customers purchase four entrées in any month of the program to earn Mild status; eight entrées (one of which can be the free entrée earned for the Mild level) to reach the Medium level; and 11 entrées (another one of which can be the free entrée earned in the Medium level) to unlock the Hot level.
– At the end of each month, purchase totals reset to zero, and participants begin again the following month.
– A maximum of one visit (with a purchase of $6 or more) per member, per day counts toward Chiptopia rewards. Purchasing multiple entrées on the same day does not earn additional rewards (for example, if a customer buys three meals at one time or in the same day it only counts for one visit, not three).

Customers who achieve the same status level for three consecutive months in a row will be eligible for Bonus Rewards.

– Achieving Mild status all three months earns one additional free entrée.
– Achieving Medium status all three months earns $20 in Chipotle merchandise at store.chipotle.com.
– Achieving Hot status all three months earns catering for 20 (a $240 value).


Customers who register for the program in July earn a free chips and guacamole with their first entrée purchase (of $6 or more, before tax) and will be eligible for special Bonus Rewards, available for redemption at the end of the promotion. Users are able to register at any point from July through September; however, the free chips and guacamole and Bonus Rewards are only available to those who join the program by July 31. Bonus Rewards are only available to those customers who achieve status levels all three months.

Rewards earned during Chiptopia expire 30 days after they are earned. Mild and Medium Bonus Rewards expire on Dec. 31, 2016 and the Hot Bonus Reward expires on March 31, 2017. The rewards program is valid in the U.S. only and cannot be combined with other coupons, promotions or special offers.
