I remember when I went to the States to study close to 10 years ago, one of the things that I look forward to was OREO! At the time this favorite cookie hasn’t hit the local market, but I’ve already heard quite a bit about it. OREO was among my first purchases from a supermarket at the States, together with essentials like pillow and toothpaste.
oOOo I especially love the doublestuf OREO!
OREO actually did play an integral part of my university life. I used to have it while watching ball games with friends on tv, while studying for exams and feeling hungry late at night, or whenever I was too lazy to go to the canteen. It was the perfect meal replacement that is actually tasty and doesn’t even require a microwave!
So you can imagine how glad I was when I found out that they have brought OREO to Malaysia when I came back from my sojourn to the West. To me, it’s almost like coming home and finding it in your mailbox!
And you know there’s something that is even better than OREO? Doublestuf OREO!
I can’t speak for everyone, but to me, the best thing about OREO has always been the stuffing. Before the head chef at Nabisco figured out the double stuffing thing, I used to always pick out the stuffing and stack them up together. That way I get to have one double stuffed OREO, and one without any stuffing. But with the Doublestuf, every cookie comes with extra thick layer of stuffing, it’s like having 6 prawns instead of 3 in a char kueh teow, genius!
of course, good things must be shared
I usually have my OREO as is. However, if I can find a glass of milk (good milk is so difficult to have here in Malaysia), I’d do the famous twist and dunk method too. The wholesomeness of milk mixes rather well with the slightly salty cookie, makes for pretty good breakfast, and breakfast is not that many hours away as I’m writing this. I think I’m going to Cold Storage to get some OREOs tomorrow and have it at my office, bye!
