Snack foods are often the hardest to replace for those sensitive to gluten. But this week, Oreo announced exciting news: Beginning in January 2021, the classic chocolate sandwich cookie will be available in two new gluten-free varieties: Oreo Gluten-Free cookies and Oreo Double Stuf Gluten-Free cookies.

Gluten-sensitive fans of OREO on social media were pretty ecstatic about the news. “Best thing to ever happen,” one tweeted.

The new gluten-free Oreos will also be certified by the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America, meaning those who are gluten intolerant can enjoy the cookies safely without worrying about the ingredients causing a reaction or getting sick. These two gluten-free versions of the classics will be permanent additions to the Oreo product line, so gluten-intolerant fans will no longer have to rely on nostalgia (or lackluster substitutes).

Oreo has long been a brand known for its seasonal spins and mystery flavors, so it’s notable to see a new variety launch that isn’t buzzed about for its flavor, but for filling a dietary need.

Hopefully other snack food brands follow suit!
