Source – A math teacher and his students have confirmed what many cookie lovers have long suspected – there simply isn’t as much creme filling in Double Stuf and Mega Stuf Oreos as the manufacturers claim. Dan Anderson, who teaches at a high school in Queensbury, New York, decided the confusion surrounding Oreo fillings was a perfect example to engage his students in using maths in real life. Anderson, 32, brought to class one package each of regular Oreos, Double Stuf and Mega Stuf. He then split his students into different groups, with some measuring the cookies’ height and some their weight. ‘We weighed 10 of each – Double Stuf, Mega Stuf and regular,’ he told ABCNews.com. ‘And we weighed five wafers alone to deduct from the total.’ Using mathematical equations to determine the creme content of the cookies, Anderson’s students found that the bigger Oreos didn’t include as much filling as the packaging suggested. The Double Stuf Oreos were only 1.86 times the size of regular Oreos, rather than double as the name suggests.
What an absolute slap in the face from Nabisco. Do they realize that there are people who base a large chunk of their life on the contention that Double Stuf Oreos are the kings of Oreos? Double the filling brah. Why even bother buying regular Oreos when ones with twice as much creme are available on the same shelf. If you’ve never had that argument with someone before then you just aren’t passionate about delicious cookies my friend. But now I have to find out that I’m being shorted .14 times the creme filling? Such bullshit. If someone says they’re selling me twice as much of something, I want twice as much. No more, no less. That’d be like McDonalds selling you a double cheeseburger with 1.86 cheeseburgers on it. No good. No good at all. Get your shit together Oreos. Quit jewing me out of my creme. Double means double. Clean it up.
