Love a deep-fried cookie but can’t be bothered to hop in the car and brave the crowds at your local state fair? Don’t fret, because Oreo is now officially bringing it to your freezer.

A new line of “State Fair” Oreo cookies has been released, and is currently available at select Walmart stores across the country. The coated Oreos come in two different flavors: “Vanilla Crunch” and “Chocolate Crunch.”

“State Fair” Oreos are not actually found in the deep-fryer section of the grocery store (if only it existed…); instead, curious customers pick them up from the freezer section. When in the comfort of their own homes, they then can either throw it in the microwave or in the oven—for a temperature and texture resembling that fresh-fried feel of the fair.

The new product was brought to the attention of the food world by Instagram-famous junk food blogger junkfoodmom.

Since there’s nothing more American than battered-n-fried food at the state fair (aside from #freedom, obviously), these cookies would fit right in after a hearty, fatty barbecue burger spread or a corn dog-eating competition.
