The internet is abuzz today with a photo of Candy Corn Oreos making the rounds. The Oreo camp has confirmed to HuffPost Food that they are indeed real and they will be available exclusively at Target starting next week for a suggested retail price of $3.59.
The cookie is a limited edition (Halloween season, clearly) and several blogs are racing to try them (
