Are Double Stuffed Oreos Really Double Stuffed?
The stuffing is my favorite part of Oreo cookies. I was very upset to find that I may not be getting double the stuffing in Double Stuf Oreos.
A New York high school math teacher had his students find out how much "stuf" was actually in the different types of Oreos. The students' findings are not what I hoped they would be. They weighed 10 of each type of Oreo, original, Double, and Mega. Then they weighed the cookie without the cream.
They found that the Double Stuf Oreos only had 1.86 times the stuffing of the regular Oreos. Just as disappointing, the Mega Stuf Oreos had 2.86 times the stuffing.
Oreo spokeswoman Kimberly Fontes says "While I am not familiar with what was done in the classroom setting, I can confirm for you that our recipe for the Oreo Double Stuf cookie has double the stuf, or cream filling, when compared with our base, or original Oreo cookie."
