Snack UNBreak: Recycling Oreos

Oreo cookies are undoubtedly one of America’s favorite foods.  The creme sandwich delight has the best selling cookie in the country for many years, and comes in numerous variations.  And like any popular product, there are copycat and generic brands out there to satisfy demand.  But what happens to all of the cookies that we don’t purchase at 3am from CVS?  You would think they would be donated to a local food bank, or thrown into the garbage.  Well, you’d be wrong.

It’s good to see Newman’s Own Organics living up to their environmentally sound principles.

  1. Oh my god, I want Oreos so bad now.

      I have a bag of Oreos sitting in front of me, but eating them 30 minutes before hitting the gym is probably a terrible idea.

      We flew southwest this weekend and they gave us oreos as a snack. Due to my expert hording abilities, I had them this morning at work!

    Oreo is actually a copycat of Hydrox.

  3. I’m going to pretend it didn’t take me as long as it did to realize this was a joke.

    Not to steal Facetaco’s gig while he’s under the knife, but the comments on that first link are pretty great.
    GelW says
    “It starts with:
    granulated sugar which is toxic
    powdered grass seed which is inedible”
    If it’s so inedible, how did I eat half a dozen of them in one sitting?!??!? They always used to say things were inedible on Top Chef too, and I was like, “I bet I could eat that.”

  5. I know this is a joke video, but I do actually know a #truefact about Oreos. I have it on good authority that the oreos that break at the plant are used as cattle feed. So if any of your burgers are chocolate flavored, that’s why.

    • artdorkgirl says:

      Maybe THAT’S how they get chocolate milk.

      My uncle has a dog food factory, and they have deals with cereal companies. If the fruit loops or fruity pebbles, etc, are even the slightest bit off in shape or color they are sold to a place like his and it becomes one of the many ingredients in your dog’s food.

      I bet cows love oreos because they are also black and white, even if they drop the crumbs, no one knows.

    • Erika says:

      What a waste. Those broken Oreos should be used in cookies ‘n cream ice cream.

    Why does “Ahhhhh, yeah, look at that creme.” sound SO FILTHY!? This is amazing.
