In solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community, Oreo released a special edition of rainbow cookies last Friday in partnership with PFLAG.
“Starting Oct. 9, the colored cream cookies, which will not be sold in stores, will be given away to the first 10,000 people to share on social media their idea of allyship,” reported KTLA. “The cookie giveaway is part of Oreo and PFLAG’s Proud Parent campaign, ‘a year-long initiative designed to shine a spotlight on the powerful impact love & acceptance can have on LGBTQ+ youth.’”
