Oreo O's was a breakfast cereal made by Post Foods which consisted of Oreo-flavored O-shaped pieces of cereal.[1][2] A variation of Oreo O's called Extreme Creme Taste Oreo O's contained Oreo filling flavored marshmallows.[3]

The cereal was launched in 1998[1] and discontinued in 2007 everywhere outside South Korea.[4] The cereal is no longer available outside of South Korea because Post and Kraft are no longer co-branding. Post owns the recipe to the cereal, while Mondelez owns the rights to the Oreo brand name.[5]

International availability[edit]

Although unavailable for purchase in the United States, Oreo O's are still produced and readily available in South Korea, with boxes of this product being available for international purchase on eBay.[4] Korean food manufacturer Dongsuh Foods was established as a joint venture of General Foods and Dongsuh Companies Inc., and was licensed to produce Post Foods cereals in Korea. When Kraft Foods acquired General Foods, half of Dongsuh Foods' stock automatically became property of Kraft, thus making Dongsuh Foods the only company with both licenses required to make Post Foods Oreo O's. This cereal can now also be bought on places such as Amazon and also a place called Cyber candy that sells a lot of foreign sweets and food.

Advertising[edit]

Several advertisements were run on television for Oreo O's. The variation Extreme Crème Oreo O's had television its own television commercial that displayed marshmallows with a humanoid shape, dancing around. The advertisement then promoted the Extreme Crème Oreo O's variation as more chocolaty in taste, and more creamy.[6]
