Sometimes all it takes to make your snack dreams a reality is Photoshop – and a verified Instagram account.
In a post on 7-Eleven’s official Instagram page, the convenience store shared an Oreo “Taquito Cannoli” photo, which showed what appeared to be a thin Oreo cookie shell stuffed with cannoli cream and a dusting of Oreo cookies.
“Behold the taquito cannoli,” 7-Eleven wrote in the caption, before dashing the hopes of all of its fans.
“(It’s not real, but it’d be totally cool if it was),” the caption continued. “Wink wink nudge nudge twist twist dunk drunk.” The brand also tagged Oreo, along with the phrase “unrealcollab.”
The post has received more than 7,300 likes and many comments from wishful snackers.
“I was about to go buy them.”
The official Oreo social media account seemed to be interested in the mash-up, too. The brand commented on the photo with a(n impossible) challenge: “711 billion likes and it’s a deal.”
However, for those who prefer their cookie sandwiches in cannoli form, Oreo appears to have enjoyed the idea.
Oreo reposted the photo on its own social media with the caption “we aren’t even mad at this.” That photo has received more than 33K likes.
However, a spokesperson from the cookie brand revealed to Fox News the taquito is "just a delicious dream, not a real collaboration." Oreo confirmed there are no current plans to make this combination a reality.
