Oreos may be America's most classic cookie, but the range of Oreo flavors out there is anything but. From Watermelon Oreos to Ice Cream Rainbow Shure, Bert! Oreos, the realm of Oreo flavors is a wacky and weird place. In honor of National Oreo Day today, we've ranked the best and worst Oreo flavors, so you don't have to make the grave mistake of choosing the wrong kind.

After much deliberation, we decided not to include the chocolate-covered varieties, because Oreo Fudge Cremes are in an entirely different ballpark, according to us. We also decided not to include any holiday flavors, because we're Scrooges, ok? We stuck to evaluating the different flavors we love and hate, and obviously we had to include Double Stuf in there, because they're so iconic.

If you thought you couldn't go wrong with an Oreo, you might need to reconsider. (We're looking at you, Chocolate Berry Burst Ice Cream.) Here is a basic guideline for choosing the right Oreo flavor: If you think it will go well dunked in milk, you're on the right track.

Without further ado, here's our definitive ranking of Oreo flavors, from awful to awesome.

16
Banana Split
Nabisco
Oh, the horror!
15
Rainbow Shure, Bert!
Oreo
If it weren't for its hilarious name, Rainbow Shure, Bert! would be last on the list.
14
Watermelon
Oreo
Watermelon flavoring can be hit or miss. This is a MISS.
13
Berry Burst Ice Cream
Nabisco
It's all wrong.
12
Chocolate Birthday Cake
Nabisco
Worst. Birthday. Ever.
11
Cookie Dough
Nabisco
While they taste nothing like cookie dough and are thus a serious letdown, they're still pretty good. They just taste more like coffee and caramel.
10
Golden Birthday Cake
Nabisco
For a crazy intense cake batter flavor, this will do.
9
Chocolate Creme
Nabisco
There's no such thing as too much chocolate.
8
Marshmallow Cripsy
Nabisco
These actually taste like rice Krispies treats and are delicious.
7
Golden
Kind of boring, but sometimes just what you want.
6
Cool Mint
Nabisco
We can get down with this.
5
Peanut Butter
Nabisco
Peanut butter, we'll always love you, especially in cookie form.
4
Double Stuf Head Or Tails
Nabisco
This is everything all at once, and it's awesome.
3
Double Stuf
Nabisco
We ♥ you.
1
Classic
Nabisco
Milk's favorite cookie, America's favorite cookie, and our favorite cookie. You can't top classic.

UPDATE: We originally left Peanut Butter Oreos off the list by accident, but realized the error of our ways. It's in there now, in its proper place.
