Photo Book: Lost Essentials

A Photo series question 'What is the essential?'

What makes Oreo cookies Oreo? Is chocolate cookie dough? Or its creamy filling? Which would be essential for Oreo
being an ‘Oreo”?

With all these iconic food products and snacks stuffing the shelves in the British grocery store, me as a foreigner,
genuinely interested in what makes these iconic snack
iconic and recognisable.
 

Imagine Oreo without its black cookies, Jammie Dodger without its berry jam, or chocolate muffin without chocolate, or cherry pie without cherry…

Would you still recognise them without their ‘essentials’?
