Dream contest, alert. Oreo is offering $500,000 to the person who comes up with the next creative Oreo flavor. As the contest states: "Think you have an idea worthy of becoming the next great OREO® creation? Share your creation, flavor or inspiration with us. Who knows? You could WIN $500,000 and have your creation in stores all across the U.S." Not too shabby.
People on social media are already throwing out flavor options, pineapple upside down Oreos, anyone?
To enter the contest you can text your flavor, or post your idea on social (along with the hashtag #MyOREOCreation and #Contest). You can enter one new idea daily, and three finalists will be chosen by August.
Oreo will release all three of those finalist flavors and then consumers will choose the ultimate winner. All finalists will receive $25,000.
Honestly, this is a pretty sweet deal. It's a great way to make a buck or 500,000, and a serious way dramatically up your cookie street cred. The perfect side hustle.
