Oreo is known for its delicious chocolate cookie sandwiches, but candy bars?

The cookie maker announced Monday it teamed up with European chocolate company Milka to combine two delicious treats: Oreos and chocolate bars. 

The "Milka Oreo Chocolate Candy Bar" will come in three sizes and has bits of Oreo cookies in a middle layer of vanilla cream filling.

The companies are also taking it a step further to make the "Milka Oreo Big Crunch Chocolate Candy Bar." It's a 10.5 ounce candy bar meant for sharing with a middle layer of Oreo cookies between two layers of vanilla cream filling.

You can find the bars in limited quantities in stores. Both bars will be fully distributed in January. 

Oreo and Milka offer similar products overseas, but this is the first time Oreo is offering a candy bar in the U.S.
