Die hard Oreo fans take note. Come February 2nd, Oreo will be releasing a Red Velvet Oreo. Now, red velvet is a decent choice, so the company will see plenty of sales from this new limited edition of a sandwich cookie.

But is it still an Oreo? Given it's made by Oreo, and given it says “Oreo”, we'll have to acknowledge those two points. But nothing can replace THE Oreo cookie.
Still, this one will certainly find favor with plenty of eager milk and cookie lovers. Red velvet cake is a classic, so as a limited edition cookie, it will sell out in the 6 – 8 week time frame encompassing Valentine's Day.
For more on this story, we're referring readers to the Chicago Tribune for the complete report and package details.
