The "creme" filling in Oreos doesn't actually involve any cream (it's mostly canola oil and corn syrup — yum!). N.B. That Oreos are manufactured slightly differently in different places, and if you've got a serious milk allergy you may want to double-double check the label. You can get more info on that here.

14. Ready-Made Frosting (most brands)

Ingredients found in Betty Crocker "Whipped Butter Cream Frosting": Sugar, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean and Cottonseed Oil, Water, High Maltose Corn Syrup, Corn Starch.

Ingredients NOT found in Betty Crocker "Whipped Butter Cream Frosting": Butter, cream.

(The label does warn that the frosting still "may contain milk ingredients"; it's only in tiny trace amounts that could be picked up from the factory, but avoid if you're hypersensitive.)
