Cocaine is less fattening though!
Can't be long until Mayor Bloomberg tries to ban these as well as everything else in NYC.
This is completely fatuous:
The researchers compared the results of their study to a similar study in which rats were either given a shot of cocaine or morphine on one side of the maze or a shot of saline on the other. It turns out that the rats conditioned with Oreos spent as much time on the drug side of the maze as those who were conditioned with actual drugs.
There was no comparison made between Oros and cocaine in rats, only a comparison between two radically different studies. Rats also prefer dark places over well-lit ones. So using the same logic, darkness is as addictive as cocaine.
My thanks go to the widely respected and credible science journal, gawker.com, for bringing this exhaustive and conclusive study to everyone's attention. Clearly, their long history of unbiased and informed reporting has come through again.
Only eaten them once. Didn't like them. I guess that's a good thing.
Crap, Oreo's are only my favorite cookie, and when I get a bag in front of me big or small, those bad boys better watch out. Especially if I have a tall glass of ice cold milk in front of me.
Don't like the double stuff one's to much though. To much of a good thing.
Here is cbs news if you need other news outlets..
From: No, Oreos Aren't as Addictive as Cocaine
Shame. I about to kick off a solid cocaine habit because I was thinking that since I can drop Oreos no problem, I shouldn't have anything to worry about.
Double Stuffed Golden Oreos. I will tell you, they make me happy when my body does its monthly "Ohhhh I'm gonna hurt you reaaal good" thing.
AKA: Shark Week....
I think anything that is packaged in potato chip like bags can be addicting. And in my opinion, it's because of the way we eat things that come from a bag.
Because when you sit down and have some lunch, you're usually focused on the specific food you're eating, like a steak, hamburger, etc.
When you're sitting in front of the TV, or doing some work, and you have a bag of popcorn, potato chips, cookies, you're usually just snacking and giving enough time for your body to digest all 50 pieces of those servings and by the time you're done, it's like you didn't eat anything at all, so you go for some more.
I actually started snacking on carrots instead for that reason. Still eat the same amount of them as I would chips, but it's healthier.
Oreos are my least favorite cookies. I'll have them with milk, but otherwise I don't care for them very much, never have. I'm very picky with the types of chocolate I eat.
Why in the hell did you eat a lab rat?
On the internet, nobody knows you're a rat terrier.
I love the golden one's. Especially the little bit sized ones!!!
O_O bite-sized golden oreos?
I need to find these, y'know, for experiments.... yes... experiments.
Another article from: why so ****ing serious?
Hash Oreos. You want hash Oreos. I'll send the recipe...
I dunno... maybe because there's no comparison (unless you have a really crappy coke supplier.)
Hash? Like hashbrowns? In Oreos? I dunno. That doesn't sound like a mix that'd go well together.
You have to use the kind that John and Yoko liked...
Then why isn't anyone addicted to them? -_-
I think sugar itself is as addicting as cocaine.
...I really hope I'm not the only one who stared at that GIF in the OP for a good 5 minutes before reading the thread.
Because it's click bait, not reality.
The researchers should have put this "study" in one fork of a maze, and put a blander study in the other fork, then set loose trained internet users (or dogs, because on the internet you never know) to see which one they like more become addicted to.
Or has that experiment already been done?
So I am immune to both because I have no addiction and I just do not care about them.
Oreos are still damn good...
