Nobody Knows What Color Oreos Are.

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." so it's on you to fight it out. 

SHARE if you think they are brown, comment if you think they are black!
