Keebler Just Released a New Cookie That Combines 2 All-Time Favorites Into One

We’re very curious to discover what they taste like.



In the fast and furious world of snack and fast-food collaborations—Nutella x Tim Hortons Donuts, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts x Hershey's, Reese's x Nothing Bundt Cakes—one of the biggest categories is cookie brand collabs.

Some cookie collaborations make a lot of sense. When Oreo teams up with Krispy Kreme for a special solar eclipse-themed doughnut, you can imagine the flavor mashup of cookie and Chocolate Glazed Doughnut. When Dairy Queen teams up with Nutter Butter for a milkshake, the flavors of vanilla and peanut butter studded with Nutter Butter pieces together seem brilliant.

But there's a new cookie collaboration that has us scratching our heads a bit, simply because we can't imagine the flavor combo. It's a cookie-plus-cookie collaboration, both from the same brand, Keebler.

Keebler’s New Oatmeal Raisin Sandies Cookies

Keebler has made Sandies shortbread cookies since the 1950s. It makes the original variety, plus one with pecans and one with cranberry and almonds. Now, the Keebler elves have a new Sandie variety, combining the shortbread cookie with oatmeal raisin.

Keebler describes the cookies as "magically-baked shortbread cookies that feature oats and sweet raisins." They're crafted to "transport you to a place where you can savor the little moments of time to yourself."

"Thanks to Ernie and the elves, the new Sandies Oatmeal Raisin flavor will allow people to hit the pause button and indulge in these moments for themselves as they enjoy the flavors of buttery shortbread and raisins," says Alicia Mosley, Keebler's vice president of marketing.

And that's where the flavor disconnect comes in. We can imagine buttery shortbread and raisins or oatmeal and raisins. But how do the shortbread and oatmeal work together?

We may be unable to imagine the flavor, but we're willing to try it. Keebler hasn't steered us wrong yet. It's given us Fudge Stripes, Thin Mint-Dipped Ice Cream Cones, and Cheeze-Its. Why wouldn't we trust them with this new mashup?
