This isn’t about Double Stuf. Or Milk Chocolate Covered. Or Cakesters. No, friends, this is about the classic, unbeatable, try not to eat the whole bag in one sitting Oreos.

For centuries, millennia, cows produced milk without knowing why. Now we know. As the perfect accompaniment to a handful of Oreos. I’m not making a judgement about whether you twist them apart and eat the cream filling separately, or if you’re a dunker. I reckon that’s your business. If you love the cookie, you’re my brother or sister.

Oreos have been around since 1912, though originally they were produce in two flavors: cream and lemon meringue. Lemon meringue. No wonder we elected Woodrow Wilson, we obviously hadn’t established our national preference for chocolate. I don’t know what that sentence means either.

If, on the oddest chance, you’re a product manager for Nabisco and you happen upon this post doing some market research, I’m sure you’d like to send me a case of Oreos as an expression of your gratitude. Just leave me a comment with your number, and I’ll be in touch. Thank you.

It's easy to share with friends.

  1. Did you get your case of oreos yet?
    No disrespect to the original, but Golden Oreos are seriously addictive, too. Cakesters are not even on the same planet!
