Oreo Cookie And Breast Milk, Foods Babies Should Not Eat

04/22/2012 08:56 AM ET

The title was meant to question the sanity of the recent Oreo cookie ad, unveiling a baby breast feeding, while holding the Kraft item in one hand. In fact, the ad itself is brilliant and if people are going to question the sanity of this Oreo breast feeding, then what are the foods that babies should not eat? The company is facing scrutiny over this campaign.

Oreo Breast Milk

The entire campaign went viral after a few media outlets picked up on it saying that it was a real ad running in South Korea. This led to scrutiny as Kraft scrambled to correct the misinformation that was being reported by the news outlets. However, some critics thought it was a brilliant campaign, but then soon realized it was all a big mistake.

The controversy sparked by the provocative ad led to it being pulled and Kraft explaining that they, themselves did not create it, rather it was done by the ad agency known as Cheil Worldwide, and it was never meant for the public eye.

“This ad was created by our agency for a one-time use at an advertising forum,” a spokesperson for Kraft said in a statement, according to TMZ.com. “The ad was never intended for public distribution or use with consumers.”

“It has never run in Korea or any other markets,” the spokesman added.
