Mint OREO Fudge Cremes Are Vegan

Mint OREO Fudge Cremes Are Vegan

Bless the good people at Nabisco.

I love cookies, and I particularly like chocolate mint cookies.  Since I’ve been a vegan, I haven’t been able to come by that holy grail of snack… until last night.

Yes, the Mint OREO Fudge Cremes are vegan and they’re AWESOME.  I wasn’t expecting them to be vegan; when one sees the word ‘fudge,’ this is usually a read flag, but I read the back, and sure enough, they passed the test.  I handed the package to my girlfriend for a double-check.  “What am I missing here?” I asked her,because I still didn’t believe the cookies could possible be vegan.  But nothing escapes her eyes, and she confirmed it:  vegan chocolate mint cookies.

Like all oreos (as far as I know), the Mint OREO Fudge Cremes have that resealable top opening, but to take it a step farther, you have this executive cookie tray inside that gives each cookie its own individual home.  Maybe this is excessive packaging, or maybe the cookies are just fragile…  but I don’t care.  The cookies are awesome!

Sure, there are the proper Mint Oreos, and I like those very much, but they just weren’t what I was looking for to satisfy my particular need for a chocolate mint cookie in the tradition of the Girl Scout’s thin mints or Keebler’s Grasshopper.  (Yes, my knowledge of chocolate mint cookies is second to none!)  Mint OREO Fudge Cremes, however, are getting it done for me.

If you’re vegan, this is a no brainer.  If you like cookies, I highly recommend you give them a try – and even if you don’t, pick up a bag every once in a while anyway because I’m paranoid they’ll stop making them.

  1. Sorry these are not vegan. If you look at the ingredients it says they are processed on a line that processes milk. I am allergic to milk. I ate 2 of these this morning and am now having an allergic reaction.

    • That is a bummer, Joyce. I hope you feel better!
      As a note, I am a vegan because I love animals; I don’t have any allergy concerns, so I only tend to read the ingredients. When they read you the riot act on the back of the package and say things like “there could be nuts, dairy, etc” I tend to ignore that because, again, that’s an allergy warning, not a specific ingredient intentionally added to the product’s recipe.

  2. Hey could you give a list of other vegan cookie’s that you know of? I’m recently vegan and trying to find more mint chocolate options.

    • Most oreos are vegan. Trader Joe’s has vegan cookies like snickerdoodles. Stop and shop also has some house brand mint chocolate cookies that are great. Whole foods carries some vegan cookies as well as (usually) some fresh baked options
      Hope this helps!
