Grab a few candles to help remind yourself that the actual cookies will be here soon. Or, light up a candle as you chow down on the actual cookies. In which case, you might have a bit of a problem.

Red Velvet Oreos Exist

ore-red-velvet

A few months ago, we were teased with the possibility that Red Velvet Oreos were becoming a reality. However, the grainy camera-phone photos and stories of shenanigans quickly squelched the rumors.

Now, the bigfoot of sandwich cookies is a reality. The limited edition Oreos will arrive on Feb. 2 — just in time to help saturate your food aisles even further with Red Dye #40-influenced foodstuffs for Valentine’s Day.

People was nice enough to offer a taste test of the cookies… So you can decide whether the red Oreos will enhance, or completely destroy, the one day of the year you get to express love.

These Cookies Will Make You Feel Bad About The Ones You Make

cookie-1

New York-based pastry chef, Amber Spiegel, makes beautiful cookies. And not just beautifully-shaped, or having the perfect cookie-to-chocolate chip ratio — but rather, each cookie being a true work of art.

See the cookie artist in action below. Keeping in mind that each one takes up to 45 minutes to create, and will probably take about 3.2 seconds to consume.
