Wikipedia: Oreo
Oreo (/ˈɔːrioʊ/) is an American sandwich cookie consisting of two (usually chocolate) wafers with a sweet crème filling. Introduced on March 6, 1912, Oreo is the best selling cookie brand in the United States. As of 2018, the version sold in the U.S. is made by the Nabisco division of Mondelez International.

Wikipedia: Macaron
A macaron (/ˌmækəˈrɒn/ mak-ə-RON; French: [ma.ka.ʁɔ̃]) or French macaroon (/ˌmækəˈruːn/ mak-ə-ROON) is a sweet meringue-based confection made with egg white, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond meal, and food colouring.
