RE: vegan 'fun' foods?

You are your own boss in this. If you feel the processed ingredients in Oreos are vegan and what you want to put in your body, then it is fine for you. For now. Later, you may choose differently. This is a path of learning and progress.
I think what might be fun for you is to experiment with healthy versions of your comfort food. Examples, do you like ice cream? Freeze some fruit blueberries and strawberries are a good choice, put them through a blender with a frozen bananas (banana makes it creamy) and see if you can't find a good sub for ice cream.
Many people swear by this:
I have a vitamix, so I use that.
I have a recipe for banana bites. They are made from whole oats, over ripe bananas and a few other ingredients. No added oils and such and my sister and I eat them instead of cookies.
Get the idea? Give your taste buds an opportunity to let go of bad foods and chemicals and introduce them to what whole foods can do.
Enjoy the journey most of all!
