  • There have been many flavours of Oreos over the years.
  • Some stuck around while others were only limited edition.
  • Flavours include red velvet, peanut butter, and lemon.

Oreo, “milk’s favourite cookie,” has been around since 1912, and in its 107-year history it has released a number of permanent and limited-edition flavours.

Here’s a look at some of the most memorable throughout the years, including ones you can find on the shelves now.

Birthday Cake Oreo was launched to celebrate the cookie’s 100-year anniversary.

In 2012, Oreo released Birthday Cake Oreo (with birthday cake-flavored creme dotted with colours to resemble sprinkles) as a limited-time item. Due to its popularity, the brand kept it on as a permanent flavour.


Carrot Cake Oreos hit shelves earlier this year, just in time for spring.

Eagle-eyed shoppers spotted this limited-time flavour as early as January. This cookie is made with cream cheese frosting-flavored creme, sandwiched between two carrot cake-flavored cookies.


Lemon Oreos are filled with naturally-flavored lemon creme.

Serious Eats tasted Lemon Oreos and likened the flavour of the vanilla cookies to Vienna Fingers and found the filling to be “bright and tangy.” While these cookies didn’t top our list, they’re a favourite for many Oreo fans.


Red Velvet Oreos are a dessert-inspired twist on the classic cookie.

Like the Carrot Cake Oreos, these cookies feature a cream cheese-flavored filling but instead of carrot-cake flavored cookies, they’re red velvet wafers.In our taste test, we found that the cookies (sans filling) tasted no different from the chocolate cookies in classic Oreos.


Hot and Spicy Cinnamon Oreos have a kick.

Cinnamon Bun Oreos have cinnamon-flavored cookies.

Peanut Butter Oreo is a dream combination for fans of “The Parent Trap.”

Filled with peanut butter creme, we imagine these cookies would be a favourite for “The Parent Trap” twins Hallie and Annie, fictional characters (both played by Lindsay Lohan) who both ate Oreos with peanut butter.


Chocolate Oreos offer double the chocolatey flavour.

For chocolate lovers, this chocolate-chocolate combination (chocolate cookies and chocolate-flavored creme) is a winning combination.


Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie Oreo is another dessert-inspired flavour.

Apple Pie Oreos are a fan favourite.
