Yes, they are elitist. Despite the cookie pictured above and Oreos traditional look (both veer towards a more populist theme), they are elitist. Tell me which form of dessert Oreos haven't infiltrated (ice cream, yogurt, candy). They're everywhere. But at who's expense? Poor Chips Ahoy, and Nutter Butter. Nilla Wafers tried to make it higher up the food chain. But that only resulted in becoming the go to ingredient for grandma's banana pudding recipe. Makes me wonder, what is Oreo doing to keep the other cookies from being successful? I think the other cookies need a political action committee.
