So for people with dairy allergies, Oreos may not be the safest treat.

Are Oreos Vegan? The Ultimate Guide to Vegan Oreo Flavors

The OG

Start at the beginning: the original Oreo sandwich cremes are staple snacking for good reason. Chocolate and vanilla go together like, well, chocolate and vanilla. Line up your favorite vegan milk flavors and let the dunking begin.

The Double Stuf

Did Double Stuf validate your own efforts to twist and smoosh two regular Oreo cookies together for the extra creme? Life is all about the Stuf, right? So just go on and do you, Double style.

The Most Stuf

The Office star Mindy Kaling put all the Oreos to the test and hailed the Most Stuf, “it’s like cream with a hint of cookie, which is exactly how I like my cookies…truly decadent.”

Oreo Gluten-Free

Oreo, but make it gluten-free! These delectable treats feature chocolate cookies made from rice and oat flour instead of wheat.

Oreo Double Stuf Gluten-Free

Your wildest Double Stuf dreams come true: double the creme sandwiches between two gluten-free chocolate cookies.

Chocolate Creme

Chocolate on chocolate: a cocoa-lover’s dream, featuring dairy-free creme sandwiched between two crispy cookies.

Dark Chocolate

If regular chocolate isn’t enough for you, then Dark Chocolate Oreos are your guy.

Java Chip

Your fave frappé meets “Milk’s Favorite Cookie.” These cookies feature coffee-flavored creme speckled with teeny tiny chocolate chips.

Carrot Cake

There are no actual carrots in the Carrot Cake Oreos, but that shouldn’t stop you from eating them.


If you’re not on team lemon yet, let Oreo help you. Nothing says refreshing like equally tart and equally sweet crispy, soft Lemon Oreos. It’s like lemonade without the hassle of drinking.


Vanilla isn’t always boring. And when it’s vanilla-flavored Golden Oreo cookies on more vanilla Oreo creme? It’s definitely extra. Your future favorites also come in a Double Stuf Oreo variety as well. Because the only thing better than vanilla is extra.

Golden Double Stuf

Creme fiends no longer have to twist open two Golden Oreos and sandwich them together.

Chocolate Peanut Butter

Oreos with a deliciously nutty twist and the ultimate treat for lovers of chocolate and peanut butter.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

A step up from Chocolate Peanut Butter. Nothing beats a slice of chocolatey-peanutty piece of pie, but honestly, who has the time? Forks and knives and plates? No thanks. We need our favorite flavor combo to be mobile, thank you very much.

Cinnamon Bun

Eating an entire cinnamon bun is hard work. Manage your cinnamon flavor fix with Oreo-sized distribution from these creamy, slightly spicy, perfectly dunkable Cinnamon Bun Oreos and leave the sticky buns for the kids.

Thins Mint

While the regular Oreo Mint flavor contains honey, the Thins version is honey-free. And with a blast of peppermint oil, they’re as cool as they are delicious.

Birthday Cake

Birthday cake flavor is popping up all over the place – from ice cream to Easter peeps, the cloyingly sweet flavor of youth is also popping up in Oreos. If you’re the first one to grab a slice at the kiddo bashes, then this is for you. But Delish reviewers weren’t so keen on it: “Nope. This tastes like a birthday cake vomiting.”
