What Color Are Oreos, Brown or Black?

Ready for something that sounds like a simple and obvious question but apparently isn’t?

What color are Oreos, brown or black? There’s a debate going on right now on social media, after someone noticed a line on the official Oreo website from their parent company Mondelez. Quote, “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.”

So which is it really?  Well, they’re made from cocoa beans, which are brown.  But the cocoa is processed with alkali, which darkens the powder a lot, in fact, cocoa powder with alkali is called “black cocoa powder.”

In other words, we can’t tell you whether they’re brown or black…it’s on you to fight it out.

  • 2pm - 7pm | My name is Dylan. Thank you for listening to Rewind! I am the resident radio geek here at Rewind. I live, breathe, and eat radio. However, when I’m not on the radio you can find me searching for local hole in the wall pizza joints, walking the streets of downtown at night in search of fun local music to listen to, going to movies, an occasional trip to Wendover, traveling, exploring, or just chilling at home with my little family. I LOVE talking on the phone! Hit me up on our studio line at 877-807-1007, or on your social media site of choice!
