  • Oreo Cookies

    From UberFacts on Twitter --

    The filling in Oreo cookies was originally made of pork fat.

    CG:
    Someone is full of it...they had lard in the filling, but only for cooking purposes.






    P.S. Burry's Cookies, which were similar to Oreos, were tastier ( IMHO )

      I agree that the Oreo Wiki page doesn't mention it. However other sources seem to indicate that pork fat (lard) was the original ingredient but that in 2006 (per Wiki) the trans fat in the cookie was replaced with non-hydrogenated vegetable oil. I am not saying that pork fat was used as late as 2006 but it appears that when originally manufactured that was the ingredient of the original filling.

        Hello Howard. Ah ha! If Burry were busy baking biscuits, how could he have been Jack the Ripper? (heh-heh)

        Cheers.

          Sunshine Hydrox were better than Oreos, but, alas, no longer made.

          Just as Hollywood's Butternut was better than Snickers.

          Those were the good old days of about 50 years ago.

            Butternut was better than Snickers and so were Hydrox better than Oreos.
            100 % with you there.

            Chris...the stuff was in the filling, but the Twitter comment made it look as if the lard was the only ingredient in the cookie.

            Now this is a cookie ...the Sweetzel Ginger Snap
            I love 'em....the taste of just one of these bad mo'fo's sticks around in your mouth for about 20 minutes to a half hour afterwards....

              I've never recovered from the discontinuation of Kunzle showboat cakes.

                When I was a child, there was a newspaper and confectioners shop at the foot of Dyke Road Drive in Brighton, which sold loose sweets called, I believe, Sausages, Peas and Potatoes...I loved them and was heartbroken at the age of five when we moved away...

                To this day I've never seen them anywhere since...

                All the best

                  Donna likes the Sweetzel Spice Wafers which also have ginger in them.
