Are you ready for Pumpkin Spice Oreos? The classic cookie will be getting a fall makeover later this month and the reactions so far have been mixed.
Pumpkin Spice Oreos? So, we’re giving up on that whole ‘combating obesity’-thing, aren’t we?

Now, most Twitter users are judging their reactions purely on the idea of Pumpkin Spice Oreos. But what do they actually taste like? The people over at Time got their hands on an early batch and, “among TIME staffers, responses were largely positive.
One staffer said: “It tastes like fall!”
Another said: “It tastes like a Yankee candle!
The staff at the Huffington Post also enjoyed the cookies. One editor writes: “They taste more gingerbready than pumpkin piey, but I’m OK with that. The smell was way stronger than the taste,” said another. “It’s not too sweet, and the pumpkin flavors are mild, not overpowering at all.”
The Pumpkin Spice Oreos feature two vanilla cookies and a little pumpkin spice cream. The cookies will be available on September 24 and will be on the shelves for about 6-8 weeks.
