Math Class Finds Out That Double Stuff Oreos Aren’t Double Stuffed
I've never held an Oreo Cookie in my hand long enough to ask myself this question. It goes cookie box, glass of milk, mouth, end of story. I don't want to complicate my cookies dangit! A cookie obsessed math teacher in upstate NY gave his students the task of finding out the facts behind Double and Mega Stuff Oreo Cookies. The truth they found, is there is no truth in the names of the cookies.
"Here's how they did it.
The students weighed 10 of each type of sandwich cookie -- original, Double and Mega. They also weighed the wafers separately, without the creme
Subtract the weight of the wafer from the total weight of the cookie, and you get the stuff!
The results: shocking, if you can say such a thing about a cookie revelation.
Anderson's students discovered that those cookies we love so much, aren't all they're stuffed up to be.
Double Stuf? Not really. Try 1.86 times the stuff of a regular Oreo. Mega Stuf? Try again. How about 2.68 times the stuff.
"While I'm not familiar with what was done in the classroom setting, I can confirm for you that our recipe for the Oreo Double Stuf cookie has double the stuff, or creme filling, when compared with our base, or original Oreo cookie," said Oreo spokeswoman Kimberly Fontes."
So the math class is saying that the cookies don't measure up to expectations. I say, hell yes they do! They measure up enough to fit in my mouth and that shuts me up for at least 5 seconds.
I attempted to do some research, but I got the munchies and ate all the cookies.
