Search Pinterest for “Oreo hot chocolate” and you’ll find pages of recipes calling for food processors or artfully crushed cookies or homemade whipped cream no one really has time for.

Now Oreo’s cutting out the hard work and offering its own brand of cookie-infused hot cocoa mix. The product — spotted at Walmart — first appeared on The Impulsive Buy, a blog devoted to all things snacks.

Indeed, a representative for the big-box store tells Mashable that Oreo Hot Cocoa Mix is steadily making its way onto store shelves. A nationwide rollout is expected by early October.

This isn’t the brand’s first foray into hot beverage world— as Thrillist noted, in 2015 7-Eleven offered Oreo hot cocoa in its stores, and last fall Dunkin’ Donuts added a similar drink to its menu.

But while a single cup at Dunkin’ went for about $2 (per Popsugar), a box of Oreo’s new cocoa mix, featuring 8 packets, will run you $2.98, or about $0.37 a cup.

Or, alternatively, you could also just dunk some Oreos in a regular mug of hot cocoa and call it a day.
