According to Instagram foodie, Markie_Devo, Baskin-Robbins Mint Chocolate Chip Oreo cookies will be hitting store shelves in 2019, though the he reveals the "date is not certain," but it is ready to drop in the new year.
"Mint Chocolate Chip Baskin-Robbins Oreos appear to have a chocolate wafer with a layer of chocolate [and] mint with chocolate chips crème," he wrote alongside an artist's rendering of the cookie carton, asking fans rhetorically if this "will be the last" Baskin-Robbins and Oreo collaboration.

I like to sit back and watch my leaks from 10 months ago just reach surface lol(cute). Don’t worry I wont’t let you guys suffer from the case of the same leakage.. This is another 2019 drop coming from Nabisco, yes another one(Dj Khaled voice). As you may know Oreo and Dunkin did a drop, so why would Baskin be off the table(since they are basically sister companies). The date is not certain, but the product is. Mint Chocolate Chip Baskin & Robbins Oreos appear to have a chocolate wafer with a layer of chocolate/ mint with chocolate chips creme. I’m a mint loving psychopath, so these will for sure be in my mouth🤩🕺🏼.. I just wonder will this be the last of the Baskin X Oreo collab🤔..How do you feel about this upcoming drop👇🏼. ✔️Image & info from🙋🏻♂️🔌 #food #junkfood #exclusive #oreo #oreos #candy #nyeats #foodofny #brooklyn #ny #f52grams #fatman #crossfit #cardio #cheatmeal #cheatsnack #snacks #cake #cookies #dunkindonuts #krispykreme #baskinrobbins #baskinrobbinsoreo #mm #yum #noms #foodreview #youhearditherefirst #justcallmemroreo
Delish, who first reported on the Oreo cookies collaboration, notes that the taste will be "more like Baskin-Robbins' own Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream flavor," adding the possibility of the chain even carrying "the Oreos once they're released for a perfect topping to the Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream."
The Mint Chocolate Chip flavor would be the fifth new flavor Mondelez International is said to be releasing in 2019. Just before Christmas, reports surfaced that Nabisco would be introducing a new Dark Chocolate-flavored Oreo, which will feature dark chocolate-flavored creme between two classic chocolate Oreo cookies. Nabisco said the new cookie will also "help fans embrace the darkness and add a dose of playful excitement to the shorter and colder days ahead," as cited by TODAY.com.
The Dark Chocolate cookie is expected to hit store shelves nationwide Jan. 2, and poised to become a best seller as fans jump for excitement.
In addition to the Dark Chocolate, rumors hit the web that flavors like, Carrot Cake Oreos would also release, featuring flavors of cake cake with cream-cheese flavored cremes; a Love, Oreo described as "sweet and tangy" and an Easter Egg Oreo closer to the spring season, that embraces the shape of an egg with purple-colored creme.
