  1. OOH - scientific experiment! I'm a scientist so anything to help my fellow researchers.

    I eat Oreo cookies by:
    1) twisting them apart and first eating the cookie that doesn't have any cream filling on it.

    2) I then scrape off the cream filling on the other side of the cookie and eat that side of the cookie (I hate the cream filling)

    3) I always eat them with a glass of milk, white milk only -no chocolate or any other flavoured milk) and I will occasionally dunk the oreo into the milk as I eat them

    I've been eating them since I was little and have always eaten them the same way. Usually 4-6 Oreos - too full after that since I'm usually drinking 2 glasses of milk with them.

    1. When they stopped making Hydrox, I stopped eating cream-filled chocolate cookies.

        I too love Hydrox. This past winter they were available for their 100th anniversary. They were packed with a $1 off two pkg sticker on them. Market Basket supermarkets hadx them at 2/$3, with the sticker they were $1 a pkg. I ate plenty.........
        I still have twenty boxes in the freezer.

        We never ate oreos growing up because they were made with animal fat (lard). Hydrox were made with vegeatble shortening.

        My wife says the new oreos made with vegetable shortening don't compare with the old and she no longer eats them.

        1. re: bagelman01

          Actually, the non-transfat shortening used now in both Oreos and the temporary Hydrox might be called a cookie-fail.

      2. I haven't had an Oreo cookie in 50 years. I ate them in irregular non-consecutive bites alternating with head cheese.

            You're a weird dude, Sam.
            I like to dunk them in a glass of ice cold milk, and hold the cookie in the milk for a 3-count so they soak up some of the liquid.
            If I am without milk I'll usually just shove the whole thing in my mouth at once.

          2. I eat mine frozen with ice cold milk.
            Two cookies.
            Two bites each cookie.
            aaah.
