With less than two weeks to go until the final season of Game of Thrones, our anxiety levels are soaring. (Who will take the throne? Who will die? How is Melisandre’s skin so silky smooth?) As one does when under such intense pressure, we plan on stress-eating to get by—and what’s more appropriate to eat than Game of Thrones Oreos?
We had heard rumblings that Nabisco was launching such a treat, and after the brand teased their launch on Twitter, we were skeptical but curious. Surely it’s just a packaging gimmick, we thought. For the first time ever in our entire lives (just kidding), we were wrong.
The sandwich cookies are embossed with four different images: One for each of the houses vying for the Iron Throne (Lannister, Targaryen and Stark) and one for those smoldering White Walkers. Oreo also went so far as to create a mock title sequence using 2,750 of said cookies. So you could say they’re taking season eight very seriously. According to a press release, Oreo will also be surprising superfans (of Oreos or GoT? We’re not sure) who use the hashtags #GameofCookies and #ForTheThrone on social media, with “special treats”throughout the season.
The official cookie release day is April 8, and supplies will be available nationwide wherever you get your Oreos. That gives you six days to stock up before the premiere. Until then, we’ll be over here theorizing about how it all ends.
