Winter Is Coming—and So Are Game of Thrones Oreo Cookies
The countdown for the final season of Game of Thrones is underway, but if you need something to satisfy your cravings while you wait, look no further than America’s favorite cream-filled cookie. As Delish reports, Game of Thrones-themed Oreos will be released at some point before the April 14 premiere of season 8, and fans can hardly contain their excitement.
The sweet news was leaked by CandyHunting, an Instagram account that highlights new and forthcoming snacks. The image, which reportedly comes from “a very reputable source,” shows a black Oreo package with house names like “Lannister” and “Targaryen” printed across it.
We’re not sure of the exact connection between Game of Thrones and cookies, but when you have a good thing on your hands, it’s best not to question it. “I really want to see [the Oreos] built up in the opening sequence,” CandyHunting wrote in its post. “Winterfell, King's Landing, Oreo package, the Wall ... Or maybe Daenerys munching on some Oreos while riding Drogon.”
Game of Thrones Oreos! 😱 In a partnership nobody saw coming, new Game of Thrones Oreos will be out sometime before the debut of the final season on April 14. I really want to see these built up in the opening sequence. Winterfell, King's Landing, Oreo package, the Wall... Or maybe Daenerys munching on some Oreos while riding Drogon. And to preemptively answer some questions: Yes, these are legit. The image is from a very reputable source. No, these are just normal Oreos in a redesigned package. No, these are not exclusive to a particular store.
According to CandyHunting, the GoT Nabisco treats will not be exclusive to any particular store, so there’s a good chance you’ll be able to pick up a package from your local supermarket. In the past, Oreo has released movie-themed packages to promote Transformers, How to Train Your Dragon, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas, among other titles.
As for Game of Thrones: both Bud Light and makeup line Urban Decay have formed partnerships to promote the series. Find out more about what the final season of the epic HBO series might have in store for viewers here.
