Are Oreo Dairy Free?

Are Oreo Dairy Free?
UPDATE 15/07/13 - UK Oreos do not include milk in their ingredient (please note there is a may contain warning), make sure you check packets as older stock may still be on shelves.

How's the Christmas shopping going? Would it annoy you if I said mine was all finished at the start of the month and wrapped? Not much has happened in Sugarpuffishland this week. It has been work, moaning about the cold, then complaining about my eczema. 

I did have an exciting discovery this week. Did I mention I like junk food? It's all about balance right? When you have dietary restrictions it can be nice to find treats outside of the free from aisle. It makes you feel dare I say 'normal'. So this week I've come to realise that Oreos from the USA don't list milk in the ingredients but the same can not be said for UK version. Sounds very silly but I finally solved the puzzle and recall how I was able to eat Oreo cookies in America. It had been a while since I visited the USA and I thought I was going a little crazy. I was at an American candy store when I spotted I could eat different varieties of Oreo. Then out of curiosity I checked the ingredients on the packets at Tesco. Add to my excitement the American candy store was selling Oreo Fudge Cremes. Twitter didn't No one believed me when I mention they were milk free so here is the proof pictured above.

I hope at some point in time Oreos sold in the UK will have a recipe change and we can also enjoy more cookies dipped in plant milk.
