Much like the meltdown caused when it was announced M&M’s are not halal (in some countries), Twitter is in a state of shock after an Oreo debate.
Following a confirmation that Oreos produced in the United States and Canada are NOT halal, reps for Oreo in this region issued a statement assuring customers that all Oreo products are made and sold in the GCC are halal…Phew!
These are the tweets that had Twitter freaking out
Local Oreos to the rescue! People can chill, Oreos here are good to go
GCC dwellers who love Oreos immediately let out a sigh of relief
HOWEVER, the question still hovers
What about Oreo lovers who DON’T live in the GCC???
Are the rest of the world chowing down on Oreos that are not halal?
The company confirmed the cookies are not halal in the states or in Canada
This means, if you’re travelling outside of the GCC you must check the packaging before digging in
Oreo McFlurry’s may be a no-no too.
