The Proper Way

Happy Birthday to my nephew Tim. Yay!

Harold and Beth and family came over for dinner last night. They brought fried chicken and other delicious things. For dessert, they brought Oreos.

They were double stuff

They were double stuff

We discussed the proper way to eat Oreos. I open the cookie, scrape off the creme with my teeth, and eat both cookies. I thought everyone did that. There are more ways than I might have thought. Here’s the rundown:

TIM – Dip the Oreo in milk, bite the wet part, let the cookie parts dissolve in your mouth, eat the cream.

HAROLD – Put the whole thing in your mouth all at once. Eat it.

BETH – Open, then eat the cookie that the creme didn’t stick to. Break the cookie that has creme on it in half, stack them – double cream! Bite the new sandwich and eat.

TARA – No particular way of eating, but if the Oreo is not stacked symmetrically, it must be dismantled and re-stacked.

LLOYD – Smash the cookie pieces together so cream gets smeared onto both of them. Take one half, lick the cream off, eat the cookie. Take the other half, lick the cream off, eat the cookie.

LAUREN – No particular way to eat the Oreos, but they must not be dunked in milk. Food that is wet and shouldn’t be is gross!

One more thing: while I was looking at the Oreo package, I noticed this:

Stuf? Has Double Stuf always been spelled with one “F”? I do not remember that at all. Another example of the Mandela Effect? Or have we moved into an alternate universe?

    I can only hope that with Tim turning 11 today, he will realize the error of his ways.

    I fear I would eat them as Tara – lack of symmetry is somewhat disconcerting to me. Yet, now that I think on it, I believe I am in reality a open-and-lick-the-creme-first kinda gal.

    Off to reassess my priorities…

    Mark likes just the cookie….stacks all the creme “discs” together and then doesn’t eat them. I know, the creme lovers would have big eyes over this.
