Please let this ‘Oreos are not Halal’ thing be a mistake…
You know Oreo? Of course, you do. Everyone knows about the scrumptious dark cookie with the creamy middle. Okay, I am getting carried away because I am currently fasting but you get it; Oreos are delicious and everyone has grown up eating them.
This Twitter user asked a question to the beloved biscuit making company about whether Oreo cookies are Halal or not
@Oreo please is Oreo halal

And the answer she received broke thousands of hearts
It is pertinent to mention that the official Oreo account’s tweet appears to have been deleted now, but more on that a little later.
Thanks for reaching out! OREO cookies are not halal.

Muslims around the world began freaking out with the idea that their favorite cookie, one almost everyone has grown up eating, might not be Halal for consumption

Some pointed out that the person who tweeted this might not have had an idea about what Halal is because Oreo are vegan/vegetarian which means they come under the Halal category anyway
But they’re vegan pic.twitter.com/ZSZ5ecdO6b

Then how it is veggie friendly?

How is oreo vegan but not halal?

@Oreo Why is it marked as suitable for vegeterians in India then? Anything suitable for vegetarians should be Halal. pic.twitter.com/ZTa09gW10U

BUT THEN, someone pointed out that while it may not have pork or gelatin but may contain alcohol which is vegan/vegetarian-friendly but certainly not Halal
Boy oh boy, lotsa confusion.
But your website says that you are vegetarian friendly, so how could you not be halal???? Do Oreos have alcohol??????

And someone talked about how the vanilla cream in Oreo has some alcohol in it but some scholars believe that the cooking process burns the alcohol out which makes the entire thing Halal
While a lot of scholars may think Oreo are halal, some do not. And it’s up to you what you decide for yourself.
they’re saying that vanilla extract contains a small amount alcohol therefore making it haraam. it doesn’t have pork. many sheiks believe that vanilla extract burns the alcohol when cooked and many don’t. i think it’s a eat at your own risk kinda thing pic.twitter.com/mcXPJfe3uC

Many people were just pissed at the person for even asking the question because you can’t be punished for something you didn’t know wasn’t Halal, LOL! But then again, to each their own.
I am sure the Oreos being produced in Pakistan are Halal, the company couldn’t take such a risk also the packaging says that. Quite literally
It’s confirmed that Oreo Pakistan is halal it’s being manufactured by Continental Biscuits Limited. #OreoPakistanIsHalal pic.twitter.com/bNuwG7s0EB
— Izma. (@IzmaSiddiqi) May 14, 2019
The Pakistani manufacturers of Oreo were so scared about the ramifications on their product that they had a full blown social media campaign to tell everyone that Pakistani Oreos are Halal
It probably depends on where the cookie is being produced. If the packaging says Halal, go for it but if it doesn’t specify then it’s your own risk to take
Rest assured, people were pissed this question was even asked.
Good morning to everyone except the guy who is researching if Oreos are halal.

Whatever the case may be, we’ll let you know. But I know one thing for sure; writing this piece is making me wish I had some Oreo for iftari.
