Pride Oreo

Pride Oreo

This was the political confection of 2012. Created in print to celebrate Gay Pride (or to sell cookies), this rainbow Oreo caused some to call for a boycott on Oreos.

On June 25, 2012 Kraft-Nabisco’s Facebook page displayed this Oreo accompanied by “June 25 | Pride” with the text “Proudly support love!”  While the response was overwhelmingly positive (297,700 likes), a boycott Nabisco campaign also started on Facebook (100 likes).
