Updated November 2023! Oreo Cookies turned 110 last year, but they haven’t aged a bit. In fact, they’ve been surprising dairy-free consumers for decades with fresh new flavors. Yes, these beloved chocolate sandwich crème cookies have been made without dairy for as long as I can remember. According to PETA, Oreo cookies are even an “accidentally vegan” treat. And the milkless options go well beyond the Original flavor! See the guide below to discover all of the dairy-free Oreo cookies available for dunking in your favorite milk beverage.

Yes, Oreos are Dairy-Free, and They Make Gluten-Free Too
A few years ago, Nabisco announced the launch of certified gluten-free Oreo Cookies in not one, but two varieties. And this year, they’ve added a third wheatless flavor, Gluten-Free Mint Creme Oreos! All three varieties are also dairy-free. But they aren’t the only dairy-free options. See our Oreo guide below!

Why are Oreo Cookies Certified Kosher Dairy?
Oreos are made in a shared facility where both their non-dairy and dairy varieties are handled. For that reason, the kosher certifier requires a dairy certification, even on the flavors without dairy. You can read more about this topic in our Kosher Labeling Guide for Dairy-Free Consumers.
An outdated article on a kosher website (from 2013) states that only the original Oreo flavors are made without dairy, but this is no longer true. Most flavors of Oreo cookies are now made without dairy. But like all products, they carry some degree of risk for cross-contamination.
If you are concerned about potential cross contamination with milk, contact the company to learn more about their processes before purchasing and consuming. Only you can decide if a food is safe for your needs.
Are Other Sandwich Creme Cookies Dairy Free?
Oreo isn’t the only game in town. There are many brands of sandwich creme cookies that just happen to be dairy-free by ingredients. In fact, most are. Look for Newman O’s, Back to Nature, and select Lotus Biscoff varieties for wheat-based options. For gluten-free, try Kinnikinnick or Mi-Del. And many store brand sandwich creme cookies are dairy-free – just check the labels!
