Are Oreos the same in every country?
This favorite cookie is manufactured by Nabisco, a division of Mondelez International. While most consumers know Oreo sandwich cookie as two round chocolate biscuits with a vanilla crème filling in between, variations of the product can be seen in other countries.
Both the US and UK Oreos are primarily sweetened with sugar. Both have HFCS listed after the cocoa. In the UK HFCS is called glucose-fructose. The formulation is adjusted for different tastes, and in this case is really just a slight change in texture of the biscuit.
The UK uses natural additives such as Spirulina extract, Red Beet Juice, and Turmeric extract to color their Oreos, whereas the US uses chemicals such as Yellow 5, Blue 1, Red 40, and Red 3.
They have switched the fat twice. First, from lard to trans fat, then from trans fat to high oleic vegetable oil. They have also added High-Fructose Corn Syrup to the recipe at some point.
The biggest markets are the US, China, the UK, Indonesia, Canada, Mexico, Spain, Argentina, India and Germany. In fact, the US and China alone accounted for 70% of Oreo's business in 2019.

What is the official way to eat an Oreo?
Here's the answer: The “twist, lick and dunk” method is the Oreo team's tried-and-true approach. While fans might add their own steps to the process, twisting the cookie halves apart, trying the layer of cream and then dunking the Oreo into some milk is what the brand swears by.

Yes, they have just like the moon pies. Even the original Oreo has less creme filling than before. I just wish I knew why they are skimming down on the filling. I have totally noticed this.
It might surprise you to know there was a time when you couldn't get an Oreo in pretty much every flavor imaginable, but that time was very real. The first flavor Oreo added to the brand was lemon-filled, but it was soon discontinued, according to Biscuit People.

And The World's Best-Selling Cookie Is...
Yes, you guessed it! The world's top-selling cookie is the humble Oreo. It's not surprising that the popular cookie is a favorite around the globe — just look at the brand's limited-edition flavors, each of which seems to be more popular than the last.
If your dog has eaten a lone Oreo, she's probably fine. But Oreos aren't recommended for dogs. Of course, chocolate is toxic to dogs, but there's not enough baking chocolate in an Oreo to cause immediate alarm. That said, it's not wise to feed your dog anything containing even a small amount of a toxic ingredient.

American Snacks You Can't Get In The UK
Fritos – Corn chips, bean dip, and queso aren't a thing in the UK. Pretzel Bites – There aren't very many options for pretzels in the UK and they're tricky to find. Little Debbie Snacks – I'm fairly certain Brits would absolutely love Oatmeal Cream Pies as much as Americans do.

Is OREO halal? Oreo biscuits produced in Europe are not Halal certified but their composition or production process does not make them unsuitable for Muslim diet. The exceptions to this are Oreo Strawberry Cheesecake, Oreo Choc'o Brownie, Oreo Enrobed Milk & White, Oreo Cadbury Coated and Oreo Crunchy Bites Dipped.
While Oreos have always been dairy-free, they were not suitable for vegans until 1997, when lard was removed from the formulation. These days, plant-based oils take the place of animal fat. That said, Oreos still include ingredients that are not clearly labeled as vegan.
However, Oreos aren't made from unprocessed cocoa. They're made from cocoa that has been refined through an alkalizing process -- which is often called "Dutch process chocolate." (According to Martha Stewart, Dutch process chocolate, which is the type of chocolate most often used in recipes, is is milder and smoother.)
Official clarification comes after panic over Oreo's tweet:
