What Color Are OREOS

Black Or Brown - The Debate is Raging Online

November 12, 2018

Thrillist started a whole big controversery - are OREOS Black or Brown? 

Mo and Kyle Says "Black"

Cowboy Dave And George Say "Brown"

But Marie says her mom worked for Nabisco for 45 years and she know for sure they are......BROWN!

Here's what Thrillist said about it:

Two years ago, the internet was sent into a tizzy by a dress that was either blue or gold. Earlier this year, "Yanni" and "Laurel" were vying for our attention. And simmering underneath it all was a question that nobody bothered to ask... until now. 

What color is an Oreo cookie?

I’ve always thought the cookie part of the Oreo was black. You probably do too. I’ve tasted just about every Oreo cookie ever created. I’ve loved Oreo cookies since I was a kid. But guess what? Some people think the cookie is brown. To me, that’s like waking up to the news that the world has decided that the Pink Power Ranger is now actually Fuchsia. No. No it is not.

This all started when I was reading the FAQ for Mondelez, Oreo’s parent company. My job is to write about food, so it’s not that weird of a thing to do! Here’s the actually weird thing: Mondelez refuses to weigh in on the color of the Oreo cookie. Even though it’s clearly black!

Here's the official stance from Oreo's dad:

“We do not have a color assigned to the cookie portion of an OREO. Some people think the OREO is a shade of brown, while others view the color closer to black.”

Who the hell are the people who think it’s brown? They’re out there!
