Watermelon Oreos: Newest type of the popular cookie? Watermelon.

“We chose Watermelon because it is a fun, summer flavor that goes great with the Golden OREO cookie,” Oreo spokesperson Kimberly Fontes told TIME in an email.

The flavor is available at Target stores across the nation.

A review by the blogger Junk Food Guy said they taste good, although they contain no actual watermelon, instead relying on artificial flavors.

“As soon as I bit into one of these Limited Edition Watermelon Golden Oreos, I got an immediate light watermelon taste,” he wrote. ” I’ll just say it right off the bat….I liked these.  A LOT.  These DIDN’T overwhelm me with artificial (well, overly artificial) watermelon flavor.  Instead the immediate taste I got was a watermelon taste that tasted like, frankly, it had been blended with creme.”
