When I was young, I didn’t like most types of chocolate. Too bitter, especially dark chocolate. I still don’t like chocolate chip cookies and became adept at eating around the little blobs of bitterness.

Unfortunately for me, my dad is a chocolate lover and when we had a cake in the house it was always chocolate and occasionally even a Blackforest, dark chocolate cake. I had to wait for my birthday to get something other than chocolate.

The only time we had junk food was when we took our annual family trip. Then it was one week of abundance which made up for the rest of the year. There was a mound of product bags spread around the kitchen and the specifics would change over time but Oreos and M & M’s were always a staple.

Now, the kid’s favorite snack is Double Stuffed Oreos. So chocolate has creeped into my pantry.

“I have low self-esteem, but I express it the healthy way... by eating a box of Double-Stuff Oreos.” Cynthia Nixon

“Researchers in the U.K. have developed a vegetable called super broccoli designed to fight heart disease. Not to be outdone, researchers in America have developed a way to stuff an Oreo inside another Oreo.” Jimmy Fallon

Oreoing: The act in which you open an oreo so half of the oreo filler is on one side of the cookie. You will then stick the half of the oreo on an item.  Cars are ideal for oreoing.  Noun –Oreo, Verb-Oreoing, Adjective-Oreod

“A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand.”

“Fried Oreo cookies stand as a gooey example that Americans can find a way to deep fry just about anything.”

"Dunking cookies into a glass of milk with my fingers is hard work," says no one, ever. The aftermath of said dunking, however, is messier, and cleaning sticky, crumb-encrusted hands slows down the number of cookies we can shove down our gullet. Enter The Dipr, marketed as "the ultimate cookie spoon!"

“The Oreo Carb-Well box comes with about 16 cookies, at 2 per serving. But what is truly scary is seeing how much sugar is in NORMAL Oreo cookies!”

“Oreo posted the photoshopped picture of an Oreo cookie stuffed with rainbow-colored layers of frosting with the caption “Proudly support love! Over the past 17 hours more than 157,000 people have “liked” the image, 40,000 people have shared it and 20,000 have commented on it.” “As a company, Kraft Foods has a proud history of celebrating diversity and inclusiveness," the spokesperson is quoted as saying. "We feel the Oreo ad is a fun reflection of our values.

“Are Oreo Cookies kosher? The Jewish ones are, but the regular ones are not!” Rabbi Joshua Hammerman wrote in The New York Times that the kosher Oreo was “a telltale sign that Jews have finally made it.”

“My relationship status just changed to sweatpants Oreos and Netflix!"
