no! this actually has nothing to do with the structure of the oreo but rather its ingredients. google [the most reliable source ever] defines a sandwich as “an item of food consisting of two pieces of bread with meat, cheese, or other filling between them”. the creme in the center is undeniably a filling, [even though, let’s be real, “filling” was just added to the definition to cover the edge case of pbj sandwiches], but the chocolate flavored outer sections are not bread. bread is a “food made of flour, water, and yeast or another leavening agent, mixed together and baked”, whereas the cookies on the outside of an oreo are made of dutched cocoa powder & alkali [which removes the bitter flavor & gives it its black color].

In the world of food, there’s a little mystery known as the Oreo. Some folks say it’s a sandwich, while others argue it’s not. But there’s a twist to this tale. The Oreo doesn’t quite fit into either box—it’s like a riddle wrapped in chocolate and cream. It’s not exactly a sandwich, but it’s not entirely something else either. It dances on the edge of culinary classification, and that’s where the fascination begins.

You see, the Oreo plays by its own rules. It looks like a sandwich with its two cookies hugging a sweet, creamy center. But it doesn’t follow the recipe of a typical sandwich. It defies expectations and leaves us pondering its true nature. It’s a puzzle for the taste buds and the mind alike.

The Oreo’s identity isn’t set in stone. It depends on how you see it. It’s like it exists in two states at once—a sandwich and not a sandwich. It’s a bit like a quantum mystery, but with cookies. Your view of it is as unique as your taste buds.

It challenges our usual way of sorting things into neat categories. Instead of fitting into a box, the Oreo encourages us to explore the wonder and complexity of culinary philosophy. It neither is nor is not a sandwich, and that, dear mortals, is where the enchantment truly lies.

Yeah, ok.
I’ve never really thought about it, but yeah, okay. I’ll let them pass as sandwiches.

It’s not a sandwich, but it is a sandwich cookie.
Sandwiches are two pieces of bread with a filling, cookie ≠ bread.
But, it is cream filling sandwiched between two cookies.
