      Unless they change the recipe, I remember my brother telling us that the filling is made with rendered beef lard. He was full of fun facts. Once, during breakfast, he read aloud that they dug up the grave of Lee Harvey Oswald and went into great and gory detail about the white cheesy substance oozing out of his skull etc. So maybe he couldn’t let Oreo cookies off of the hook. He’s in his 50’s now and still the same. Let’s hope the recipe is not.

      I’m furious, too. In the very heart of board shorts season, when I can just feel the calories wisk away….now I have to go buy a few packages of Oreos.

      Hey, the need to see a spike in sales, right? Of course I’m right.

      That means you need to go buy ‘em too.

      @1equalityUSA: actually, Oreos are vegan.

      in all the fuss, how come nobody ever mentioned that they got the date wrong? The Stonewall events that Gay Pride is supposed to commemorate started on June 28, not June 25.

      that said, I’d buy these cookies in a flash. I’d even buy them if they only did one color between two cookies but had them in a rainbow pack. yum.

      @1equalityUSA: Your brother was thinking of Twinkies, which have (or had in the past) a filling made of rendered beef lard.

      @1equalityUSA:

      You can make your own filling without beef lard:

      No! Not Twinkies! They’re simply bovine. Thanks for clarifying. It’s very mooooooooving that you wrote. Arrr, I’m milking this one, eh? Win some, lose udders.

      @JB: Pride in NYC is every last sunday in June, not the actual date of Stonewall.

      There is no gelatin in Oreos, though there was a rumor for years that there was:

      I know that Oreos are well-known for being vegan (partially well-known because it’s like….”What? Then how do you make the cream?”)

      “I’m not sure the colors of all this filling are found in nature.” You blooming idiot – haven’t you ever seen a damn rainbow? Sheesh…..

      Oreo did an ad campaign on their Facebook page for June where each day they show an oreo in a themed picture. This happened to fall on June 25th. I don’t believe they meant that that particular day was supposed to be pride, only that they chose a day in late June for it.

      This furious guy is just looking for a way to get himself into the story.
      There are plenty of things to get furious about–this is not one of them.
      What a party pooper.

      I respect the statement but the cookie does not look good at all. Regular Oreo’s are delicious.

      still cannot help to think Nabisco is only doing this for the money. After the spike in sales JCP and Archie Comics had because of their support. Happy Nabisco is showing support but cautious too

      Oreos are on our list for today. “Oreos…to support the gay” 1,000 hormonal moms will puke into their snack bags.

      I was mad for the same exact reason. Where can I get this cookie I though. Or at least a rainbow pack with one color. WHY DO YOU TEASE ME SO!!!

      Although technically I am in Africa for at least another month so probably wouldn’t get them anyway. Dammit.

      I’m having a lot of fun online when fat homophobes say they’re boycotting the cookies. Looks like you’ve already had your fair share fatass!
      Oh god.
      I need to get laid…

      On Bill Maher’s show last night, Bill was pretty grossed out by this cookie. He’s an extreme health nut. He made a joke about how the cookie looked so disgusting, he’d rather put a dick in his mouth!

      So if these whack job homophobes are going to be boycotting Kraft for the Oreo picture, all we need to do is convince all food brands ever to support pride to do the same and all these idiots will starve….

      Lard is pig fat, not beef fat. Lard was used in Oreos until the 1990s. Then they changed it to some sort of chemicals and vegetable fat concoction. Hasn’t been as good since. Rendered beef fat, by the way, is called “tallow.” McDonald’s used to fry their French fries in beef tallow (which made a lot of sense, since they had so much of it), until the food Nazis got on them, and now they use some unholy combination of chemicals instead. And their fries aren’t nearly as good as they used to be, either.
