Last night Kraft food announced they were raising prices on some of their products including Oreo cookies, Oscar Mayer lunch meats and even prices at California Pizza Kitchen. They said the price hike is to help offset the rising cost of petroleum.
For Pete’s sake… just put less petroleum in Oreos, I’ve never been fond of the crude oil favor to begin with.
On a related note, Kraft continues to be tight-lipped about the color of Oreos:
Q: What color are Oreo’s, black or brown?
A: We do not have a color assigned to the cookie portion of an OREO. Some people think the OREO is a shade of brown, while others view the color closer to black.
