Oreo's

I'm having a craving for Oreo's. We have none, and I'm not going to make a trip out to buy them as I've been finishing off a bottle of wine.

That is all.

Oreos go better with a tawny port. Try mallomars.

I think you need to move this to the "brag about your SO" thread.

If I started bragging about her, everyone would be jealous.

I've actually gotten to the point where I don't care for regular Oreos much (though the double-stuffed ones are better). The reverse Oreos (buttery cookie, chocolate creme filling) beat the pants off of the original.

Craving Oreo's?????

Aww man, the EVIL big food companies have won and your soul has been sold to the devil!

Serious.

No I mean SERIOUS!!





OK,OK, maybe I'm not THAT serious but still. If your going to crave something make sure its worth craving. You know like REAL butter, REAL cream and REAL chocolate. Ohh and since your in North America add REAL sugar to the list. I mean honestly. Biscuits made with trans-fat laden, hydrogenated soybean oil and HFCS just ISN'T worth craving.

Next time you get a craving make sure its worth it.

Oreos aren't that good. The cookie is really dry and leaves that nasty chocolate powder all over your mouth. If they sold cans of filling then I would be all over it.

Weird! I've been craving Oreos lately, too. I prefer the Double Stuf ones. I take the cookie parts off, and make a giant Oreo. White filling 3 or 4 inches thick, with a cookie at either end.

Once I ate an entire bag in one sitting. That is just so incredibly wrong. But I was drinking non-fat milk, which is good for me, right? So it evened out, I think.

Hydrox Redux: Cookie Duels Oreo, Again
By CHRISTOPHER RHOADS

Hydrox, the defunct chocolate-sandwich wafer, is returning for one more rematch with its nemesis, the Oreo.

Bowing to more than 1,300 phone inquiries, an online petition with more than 1,000 signatures and Internet chat sites lamenting the demise of the snack, Kellogg Co. has decided to temporarily relaunch Hydrox, the left-for-dead cookie.

"These loyalists can be proud to know they've been heard," says Brad Davidson, head of Kellogg's snack division.

Kellogg quietly killed off Hydrox in 2003, ceding victory to its longtime rival, Oreo, made by Kraft Foods Inc.'s ...

Why would anyone eat crap cookies out of a bag when Nestle's Toll House cookies are so easy to make?
