We’re not really sure why, but it seems like iconic holiday symbols have been getting major face-lifts these days. For starters, Christmas trees now come in different colors and forms. Even holiday treats are no exceptions. In fact, there’s a new variant to the red-striped white candy canes that you grew up snacking on. Presenting Oreo Candy Canes. Well, perhaps they might appeal to those who hate peppermint if there are such people. Nonetheless, we’re pretty sure that everybody loves Oreos, so these treats will definitely be a hit.
Actually, this isn’t the first time for these candy canes to make their holiday cameo. As a matter of fact, they debuted back in 2017, and now, they’re returning in time for the festive season. So, you’re probably wondering what’s so special about these treats. Well, aside from the fact that they come in the form of a candy cane, there’s really nothing much.
Basically, they are just cookies-and-cream-flavored candies, just like the real thing. But of course, seeing white candy canes with a distinct black-striped design is certainly a refreshing sight to see.
Needless to say, they come in a blue packaging with snowflake prints that have an Oreo cookie at the center. Likewise, the packaging features the “Oreo Flavored Candy Canes” branding on all sides of the box. Any Oreo lover would gladly receive a box of these for Christmas. And the best thing about these treats is that they’re practically easy to get a hold of. Hence, there’s no need for you to go on a grocery store-hopping to hunt for these holiday delights.
You can readily get them from Spangler’s website. The catch is they’re only offering these candies in a 12-12 count cradles. That means 12 cradles with 12 candy canes each cradle. Basically, you’d get a better deal when you buy more.
As such, these goodies make a great option for giveaways or just personal consumption. If you plan on doing the same, then we suggest you buy in bulk to save money. However, if 12 boxes just seem too overwhelming for you, then check out this listing from Amazon instead. Here, you can opt to get these treats in packs of one, two, three, or four.
On the other hand, here are few tips if you’re up to hunt for these Christmas treats in physical stores. They’re available in Big Lots as per Instagrammer @snackgator, so better make that your first stop. Meanwhile, @dadbodsnacks found them sitting on Meijer’s shelves. Instagrammer @candyhunting also spotted them in Festival Foods.

Oreo Candy Canes are back on shelves for another holiday season! They debuted a few years ago and they generated a ton of hype…and quite frankly, disappointed a lot of us. They don’t really taste like Oreo. Just plain chocolate and no creme favor whatsoever. Totally a marketing gimmick…anything Oreo sells. But like the fool I am, I bought them again because it had Oreo on the box. Time to be let down again. ??

Holy Candy Canes, Batman! @meijerstores put out a nice looking spread of flavored candy canes! (I know Walmart has some too, that post should happen this week to compare) OBVIOUSLY the @Oreo one is calling my name, but all of these look great. Except for the Life Savers one. Idk, but that one doesn’t peak my interested. And on the Spree one…what is a “Flavor Kick??” Does the tip of the candy cane have some extra flavor the jumps out and boots you in the face? I dont see any legs for that matter either! . . . #candy #candycane #winter #seasonal #limited #oreo #drpepper #7up #aandw #rootbeer #spree #sourpatchkids #jellybelly #fundip #pixystix #welchs #lifesavers #hersheys #peppermint #dadbod #dadbodsnacks
