  • I told my dad that Oreo was a knock off and Hydrox was the original and then he ordered a box of Hydrox, that contained 6 other boxes. And being honest the taste like a stale rubbery gritty Oreo.( and they had a lot more chocolate)

  • ...But how are the Hydrox cookies, Matpat? How do they taste? Do you really expect us to believe that you crafted an entire theory about the rivalry between Oreos and Hydrox and *didn't* taste test them?

  • I'm always looking for Kosher foods because I'm vegetarian and as long as something that doesn't seem to have meat in it is Kosher I know that I can have it for sure. That there are no hidden meats through lard that could make me sick. Also Hydrox is a really unappealing name for a makes me think of bleach because it's so close in name to Clorox...
