(CBS Detroit) Oreo has taken a stab at peeps, let sugar lovers dive into red velvet, caramel and strawberry, and test their teeth against sweet orange candy corn.
Now it’s your turn.
The company behind Oreos is asking flavor fans to come up with the next great cookie flavor combination. They’re offering the winner a $500,000 grand prize and a trip to New York. Three other prize winners will net $25,000 each and a chance to see their cookie in stores next spring and summer.
To enter, Tweet your flavor idea through Twitter and Instagram with the hashtags #MyOreoCreation and #Contest hashtags. You can also text the company, respond to one of their Tweets or enter on their online form.
