Wow – it seems like food and beverage brands have truly been taking advantage of the Game of Thrones craze. From Mountain Dew to Johnnie Walker to Ommegang, it almost feels as though winter really is coming. And now, one more food brand can add its name to this double-promotional strategy.
Yes, your eyes don’t deceive you. These are the Game of Thrones Oreos. And you too can get your hands on them from your local Walmart or Target.
But where can you purchase what Oreos calls “a playful new take on the original cookie” online? Well, that privilege belongs only to Amazon Prime members. Usually. As of the time of writing this article, the cookies have actually sold out.
However, Amazon buyers can still order the Game of Thrones Oreos and they’ll be delivered once new stock comes in. Phew!
Another promotional tool comes in the form of a Game of Thrones-inspired album titled For The Throne: Music Inspired By Game of Thrones. Amongst the album’s included artists are Ellie Goulding, Mumford & Sons, the Weeknd, James Arthur among other big names.
Given the nature of the show, it’s unlikely we’ll be hearing these big names sing over any moments in the show. Although, one cannot help but toy with the idea of Mumford & Sons crooning over their banjos as Jon Snow takes to the sky on a dragon…
These promotions precede the highly-anticipated eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, which is due to start on April 14th, 2019. The season consists of only six episodes – however, each varies of length and promises to bring an epic conclusion to this addictive series.
But for those of you lamenting that this is the last season, fear not. HBO has greenlit five more Game of Thrones-based series’ for their network. This includes at least one prequel series. It’s just the cash cow that keeps on giving.
Are you going to delve into some GoT-inspired Oreos? How badly are you waiting for the last season? Let us know in the comments below!
