Today is Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2020. Here’s what you need to know:
Oreos and Supreme are teaming up to create a new version of the sandwich cookie.
In a tweet on Monday, The Supreme Saint announced the collaboration along with a picture of the new snack. The new cookie looks similar to the old one, with the exception being that the cookie part of the sandwich is red and says “Supreme” in the middle instead of “OREO.”
Twitter users had a mixed reaction to the cookie. Some are fond of the new design, while many others find the entire concept to be funny or just ridiculous.
The cookies will be double stuffed and come in packs of three, according to Supreme’s website. Supreme stores all over the world will be distributing it. The three-pack will reportedly cost $8.
