Oreo's new gay marriage rainbow cookie campaign takes fans by surprise

Not that we’re all about boycotts on Stand up For The Truth, but many of you might lose your appetite for this tasty snack. Here’s more from the baltimoresun.com

Gay pride cookie

As Maryland continues to gear up for a gay marriage question on the ballot this fall, another snack food has taken sides on the issue.

Following in the footsteps of Ben & Jerry’s gay marriage ice cream flavor, Oreo is showing support for same-sex couples with a rainbow cookie.

The “Pride” cookie isn’t something people can buy — at least not yet. Rather, the company released a picture of it Monday on its Facebook page. The rainbow layered Oreo with the tagline “Pride” garnered more than 145,000 likes and nearly 35,000 shares in less than a day.

Supporters immediately began campaigning for Oreo to make the icing-heavy creation real, something people could buy and eat. (It would be like extreme Double Stuff with all that icing.)

Just as fast, opponents began threatening a boycott.

New Ben & Jerry's flavor supports gay marriage
Earlier this year Ben & Jerry’s announced an ice cream flavor in support of gay marriage. Apple-y Ever After, apple ice cream with pieces of apple and chunks of pie crust, would be available in the United Kingdom.
