OREO DOUBLE STUFF
But Stuff sounds better.
OK SO WE ALL LOVE NORMAL OREOS - BUT ARE DOUBLE STUFFS TWICE AS GOOD??? After all who doesn't like double Whey Powder and Gulten? OK Let's see. For a start, the packet makes the bold claim that:
"Each oreo double stuff cookie contains double the creme filling (in grams) versus a standard oreo cookie."
IS IT TRUE?
Well Gobble Monkey carefully disected a normal Oreo and a Double Stuff Oreo to remove the 'creme' filling. Each 'dollop' of 'stuff' was then weighed in some blue scales.
As for the taste, by doubling the filling Oreos are taking a MASSIVE RISK. Yes, the vanilla creme was always the nicest bit of an oreo, but is this too much of a good thing? Mayonaise is everyone's favourite part of a sandwich, but would you eat a mayonaise sandwich? No you wouldn't. Luckily the double creme isn't overpowering, and delivers just the right amount of creamy sweetness to off-set the slightly salty chocolate biscuit.
But if doubling the filling improves the taste of an oreo by 100% - what if you TRIPLED the filling?
