"Oreo Is the Knockoff. The Original Cookie Is Back for Revenge."


#Oreo #Hydrox


@hund I grew up in a Sunshine Hydrox family... and now I live on the other side of the planet where Oreos are still a new exotic thing and no one has ever heard of a Hydrox... *sigh*.

@hund and now I learn that Sunshine was bought by Keebler in '99, who in turn was bought by Kellog's, who in turn (not sure of the ownership linkages) sold the Hydrox brand "Leaf Brands" who reintroduced Hydrox just recently. I always thought that Hydrox was the superior biscuit.

As a child, I was a Hydrox fan. Stupid name, great cookie.

@lightweight I'm from Sweden and Oreo is more hype than ever here. I find the cookie to be okay, there's really nothing special about it.

@hund @lightweight They're magical once shortly dipped in milk or crunched up into vanilla ice cream.

@greypilgrim @hund yes - the first instance of Oreos I saw in NZ was inside Oreo Cookie ice cream. You can buy the biscuits now in most supermarkets, but not Hydrox (yet, or at least not that I've noticed).
