Candy Corn Oreo Debuts on Monday: Five Other Oreo Flavors They Should Consider

Candy corn, adored only by compulsive sugar junkies and dentists looking to finance a new boat, has been cross-bred with everyone's favorite sugar-drenched cookie; the Oreo. Nabisco will debut the limited edition Candy Corn Oreo on Monday, selling it exclusively in Target stores for the 2012 fall season.

Foodbeast got ahold of a package on Friday, solving the riddle of what the cookie tastes like. (Clean Plate Charlie's guess? "Future cavities.") The Foodbeast assessment? Tastes "like frosting." While you give the food-colored-laced cookie a whirl this coming week, contemplate these other flavors that Oreo should consider for a future limited-edition run.
