Oreo Celebrates Mars Landing with Red Crème Cookie

The red planet now has a matching cookie counterpart — or at least a picture of one. The latest installment of Oreo’s “Daily Twist” campaign, which uses the famous treat to represent major historical events through daily photographs, paid homage to yesterday’s successful Mars landing by NASA’s Curiosity rover.

Sadly for those of us who would like to recreate the landing with a tiny replica of the rover and a red crème Oreo (and then snack on it), no such cookie is actually available for purchase.

The “Daily Twist” campaign has previously honored events like pride month and the Olympics. To see the full series, take a peek at Oreo’s Facebook page. Or, if you have an idea for an upcoming “twist”, you can submit it here.
