How much stuf is too much stuff?

Oreos: thins, double, or classic?

Everyone knows the feeling of craving Oreos and then suddenly you’re bombarded with choices whilst trying to select one. Should I go with golden Oreos, thins or just stick with the classic? Is double stuff too much cream, or not enough? These questions could go on forever, but what is truly the best Oreo? How much stuff is too much stuff?

Thins:
Released in 2015, this has been a hit managing to find a place on the cookie shelf. Marketed as a healthier alternative to the traditional Oreo, the Oreo thins are exactly what they sound like, an Oreo but thinner. Along with sacrificing much of the cream, the thins have no price benefit either. Thins might be healthy for some, but at the end of the day they are only 18 calories less than a normal Oreo for the same price. 6.5/10


Original:
The classic, the original, the first, and to some the greatest. The original Oreo cookie is one of the most recognizable food items in the world. With a great ratio of biscuit to cream, you can’t go wrong with the original. It can also be found in all sorts of different portions besides the original pack. That versatility doesn’t come with the other cookies. 8/10


Double Stuf:
Coming out in 1974, the Double Stuf Oreos are just behind the original when it comes to notoriety. Everyone has tried double stuff in their life, and it’s exactly how it sounds: double the stuff. If measured, it comes out to only 1.9 times more cream than the original, but the double stuff is almost a perfect cookie. With enough cream making you able to still eat the cookies in large portions, the double stuff is the way to go. 9/10

Mega Stuf:
A monster of a cookie, the mega-stuf Oreo is nearly double the cream of double-stuf. Getting a little expensive, the mega stuf came out to be nearly 20 cents a cookie. There is also a lot of wasted area in the packaging, which let the cookies slide around and resulted with broken cookies. With so much cream, as soon as you press down on the cookie, the cream starts to slide out of the sides which makes it harder to eat. Nevertheless, the cookie is a great option on the shelf though it can be difficult to snack on. 8.9/10


Most Stuff:
The Most Stuf is a godzilla of a cookie and can be rarely found on the regular shelf. Instead of finding it in our normal grocery stores, it had to be ordered online and with shipping costs, the total can come to 15 dollars for 8 cookies. The cookies are so thick they usually only come in packs of four. The most stuff Oreo is more of an experience than just a food item. The actual taste is a little too much cream for me but it’s definitely worth buying just for the experience. 7.6/10
