I prefer homemade...it's because I grew up with homemade cookies. Nothing else compares IMO

I prefer homemade, but DH always gets sucked into BJ's buy two packages of Oreos and get a "free" gallon of milk. Once we start eating the Oreos, we just can't seem to stop. Must be all those preservatives.

Yeah, Oreos are weird for me. I generally think "eww" but once in a while I get a mad craving for them. I also give in if there's a good coupon, because my kids like them. I cannot eat more than a few though, and I start to feel nauseous.

It seems a google search reveals many who feel the same way about 'America's favorite cookie', including this blogger:

10 cookies better than Oreos | Cold Slither Podcast


Oreos are Okay, but I like so many other people I would rather have a homemade cookie (i.e., chocolate chip, peanut butter, or shortbread). Oreos probably earned the title "America's favorite cookie" because they been around for more than 100 years. They're probably the grandfather of all commerically produced cookies.

I actually have an old National Geographic magazine from 1915 that has an ad for Oreo cookies. It's hilarious. There's also another ad in the same magazine for Westinghouse refrigerators--only $35 with easy financing available.

Weren't Hydrox first? I think Oreo copied Hydrox and just became more popular.

Shhhh, my DH might hear (see) this and start looking to see if Costco or Sam's is doing the same thing.

I don't care for the cream filling in any sandwich cookies, but don't mind the chocolate cookie portion. It's not great; most mass-produced cookies taste pretty chemical-y. But it's not horribly offensive or anything. I just don't like cream filling, cream topping, frosting, etc., for the most part. It's usually so greasy and sickly sweet and fake vanilla-y tasting.

For a mass-produced, processed cookie, they're not bad, but they're nothing spectacular either. Like a previous poster said, to truly appreciate them, you gotta dip them in milk. That's the only way I eat them because they do nothing for me just eating them plain.
