Both gluten-free cookies will be available at all times, wherever original Oreos are sold, the company said.
“With the addition of the new line, Oreo invites gluten intolerant or gluten sensitive snacks to enjoy our cookies as well,” said a spokesman.
The company said it was focused on ensuring that the recipe provided a “comparative snack experience with the original recipe.”
Cookies are approved and certified by the North American Gluten Intolerance Group. This means that the gluten-free label will be clear on each package.
Oreo fans were buzzing about the news on Twitter. Some responded directly to Oreo’s tweet, which shared the news.
“I jumped out of my room to show my mother that Oreo released OREO gluten-free,” said Twitter user Bailey Cambra. “She thought I was running to tell her I heard from the city schools, so she wasn’t as excited as I expected.”
Another Twitter user, @ n3dablaine, tweeted: “Gluten-free oreos are coming out in January 2021, so I have high hopes for the year.
