A few months ago, there were some special interest news reports about a fluid dynamics graduate student’s thesis on whether it’s possible to split an Oreo so that there’s equal filling on each half (it’s not). Online comments quickly morphed into sandwich cookie preference disputes. Apparently, Hydrox cookies (which preceded Oreos) were discontinued, are back but not as good as the original (what ever IS?) but still better than Oreos, and are hard to find.
Curious, I found Hydrox online. They ARE better! Creamier filling that is not as sweet as Oreo filling, and by applying slight pressure while rotating the halves in opposite directions, the filling divides easily. The chocolate wafer part is not as sweet, either.
Cookiephiles, to your corners!
