    I just had to pause for that "Ohhh" moment when I found out "Nabisco" is short for "National Biscuit Company." It's not so blindingly obvious that I should have figured it out by now, but it is something that I have wondered in the past. Thank you for that knowledge.

    Oreos aren't even cookies, they're dry disgusting I don't know what, but sure as heck not cookie. How can anything that feels and tastes like compressed sand even be compared to a doughy gooey delicious thing like a cookie ? The fact they are top selling is nothing more that fantastic marketing, no one on this earth would actually like that dry sandy crap, if their tiny sheep like minds weren't told they like it 🤣

    in my personal opinion oreo is a better name than hydrox hydrox sounds like a window cleaning product

    Päev tagasi

    To the opening question: I prefer to let the Oreos sink to the bottom of my glass of milk, then drink most of the milk and swirl the little bit left at the bottom to mix the soggy cookies; it is like an Oreo smoothie with little discs of sweet cream. I refuse to twist the two halves apart! No advertising gimmick tells me how to eat a cookie!
