Confectionery Roundup: Oreos and Sour Patch Kids join forces; Rice Krispies Treats makes its most requested flavor a reality; and Girl Scouts diversify by selling muffins (in a matter of speaking)

Sample article from our Food & Beverage

LOS ANGELES , April 29, 2024 () –

The latest in what's going on in the world of confectionery products:

Oreo (obviously) goes from sweet to sour

Sometimes, the most obvious things only become obvious when someone does the obvious, which then and only then makes it obvious to everyone else.

That logic (more or less) encapsulates the limited-time offering of the new Oreo Sour Patch Kids cookies, with both the cookie and creme filling having Sour Patch Kids flavors and colors.

Now: Why was this collaboration not done years ago? I mean, both brands are owned by Mondelez International, so it's not like there were any road blocks.

Regardless, the sweet-and-sour combination is now here. So go get your sweet (and) sour on!
