Oreo, the chocolate cookie with white icing, is taking its classic taste to candy shelves.
The brand's first candy bar, a Milka Oreo Big Crunch Chocolate Bar, was released Monday and is available at some retailers nationwide, including Wal-Mart, Kroger, ShopRite and Albertsons, according to a company statement.
It features a layer of crunchy Oreo cookies between two layers of rich vanilla creme, coated in European Milka chocolate candy, according to Oreo's website.

“Milka Oreo Chocolate Candy Bars are a natural progression for Oreo,especially with Mondelēz International’s global leadership position in chocolate and Milka being the No. 1 chocolate candy in Europe," said spokesperson Samantha Greenwood.
"The combination of these two global powerhouse brands – both of which are known for their delicious taste – has led to a product line that is unique and truly differentiated in the U.S. chocolate candy category.”
Milka Oreo Chocolate Candy Bar will debut in January 2017. It boasts vanilla cream studded with bits of chocolate Oreo cookies, then coated in Milka milk chocolate. Also, an Oreo Choco-Mix Snack Mix Bag will also be available next year.
