I read somewhere they were... The list of (artificial) ingredients is so long that I couldn't figure it out. Yes, yes, I know they are really bad for me, but I just want to know if they are vegan. Thanks!

The ingredients just list "cocoa" which is vegan. If there's milk added to it to make it "milk chocolate" t will have it listed (as milk is a common allergen). Most oreos are vegan, but some manufacturers put whey in them so read your label!

Oreos are perhaps my favorite vegan treat. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:">

That made my day. I'm thinking of going vegan, and wow. I thought I would have to give those up. Someone once told me there was lard in them.... <b>Liar</b>! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/pibo.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":pibo:">

Three different oreo types are on Peta's accidently vegan list. I'm not sure of all the kinds since I haven't had them in more than a year... but yeah. ;P

The double stuffed Oreos are yummy. I think the cream is the best part!<br><br><br><br>
I know they are bad for you but sometimes I can't resist a vegan treat.

If you want to avoid some of the more "artificial" ingredients, Trader Joe's "Joe's O's" are vegan (and come in both chocolate and peanut butter!) and so are Newman's Own brand (I forget what they are called, but they come in traditional flavor and mint! YUM). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Just because it is vegan does not make it healthy. Eating too much processed foods is bad for you.</div>

i think the op realizes this...they weren't asking about the health aspects...just whether or not oreos are vegan.

Mmmm those are so good! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> Regular oreos are nice, too.<br><br><br><br>
I believe Nutter Butters are vegan as well, if you're in the mood for more vegan junk food. :]<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

The OP stated they didn't care about the health of it. Honestly, what's wrong with having some junk food every once in a while if you're eating healthily the rest of the time?

Oreos are vegan where I am, but I buy these: <a href="http://www.countrychoicenaturals.com/product.asp?id=25" target="_blank">http://www.countrychoicenaturals.com/product.asp?id=25</a> Since I have the choice, I'd rather support this company than Nabisco. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Yes, you are right that it was not the intent of the OP to engage in a discussion about the health of oreos.<br><br><br><br>
As far as your question though, I've discovered that when a person does eat very healthfully all of the time, the body actually starts to rebel if they try to do otherwise. That is, a really healthy body will start to reject the things that are bad for it, and a person who is accustomed to eating really healthy could make themselves feel pretty sick from eating oreos, or at least not feeling quite up to par. (I think that is why some of us health-nuts get so repulsed at the very thought of eating junk food.) On the other hand, if you are used to eating junk food, then it doesn't bother you so much, and may even make you feel better.

That is true, kind of in the same way that meat, dairy and eggs can make us sick if we accidentally eat them? *shrug* I prefer Alternative Baking Company's cookies to any other prepackaged cookie, anyway. And they're pretty healthy, for cookies at least.

The original flavour and a couple of the other types are vegan. I love crushing them up, mixing them into semi-defrosted vanilla soy ice cream, then re-freezing it. Best ice cream EVER!

Sweet. I didn't think something so sinfully delicious yet unhealthy would even be vegetarian, much less vegan. Thanks for the info. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
