    By far oreo cookies are the best thing on the planet but I can't decide if double stuf is better or the original cookie.

    With a fresh glass of milk you can eat about half a bag of regular oreo cookies and not be overwhelmed by sweetness (about a 45 minute duration). On the other hand the double stuf cookies can be eaten without milk but only for short 15 minute binges. If you eat too many of the double stuf you get over powered by the sugar.

    So what is better double stuf with a fifteen minute cookie duration or reg with a 45 minute duration?

    Well done Heyder [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
    This is what I like to see, the begining of a truly intellectual conversation [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    I personaly prefer any type of biscuits with a nice cup of tea or coffee, in fact the plain digestive biscuit is a-b-s-o-l-u-t-e-l-y mouthwatering if first dunked in coffee then swiftly stuck in ones cake hole (they drop quickly).

    Call me an old English fool if you wish but I have never tried Oreo cookies, maybe I will give them a go sometime.

    Oh God I must read that dictionary more often [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Ahh Precisely,

    An intellectual conversation we can all enjoy.

    You really do have to try oreo cookies. They are not hand made by little elves but they are still the best.

    A word of caution for you though. I'm not sure about tea and oreo cookies that might not be recomended on your first try. Sometimes it's better to start out slow and work your way up.

    I've never had oreo's.. I don't know if they even sell them in Australia.

    BUT, in response to the original question, I personally prefer a shorter cookie duration with double the pleasure. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    I am a sucker for a higher level of pleasure... The ultimate is when you can get long cookie durations with levels of pleasure that far exceeded your initial expectations. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Actually Ritz cracker sandwiches with Jiffy Fudge Frosting centers are better than anything. Don't get the premade sandwiches, though--they're not so good. Make 'em yourself with that cheap fudge frosting (it's got LOTS of sugar and chocolate flavor), they're much better that way!!! Forget using that canned frosting, too. It's pretty lousy on a Ritz.

    The cookie duration on Ritz & fudge would depend on your stomach. I get a rather long amount of enjoyment out of that, but unless you have a cast-iron stomach I would expect that the uninitiated would find the cookie duration rather short...

    Either way, Ritz crackers and Jiffy fudge is a jolt of pure heaven.

    As for the Oreos, Double Stuf is for me. Short cookies with high results.

    i like you heyder

    the pink panther avatar tells me that your a laid back kind of dude and the ease with which you handled your opponents at the searchengine forum shows a quick wit and the flower on your searchany banner tells me you are a groovy dude after my own heart

    but are you seriously telling me that you sit there and stuff your face for 45 minutes at a time?

    the brightest star lives so fast and dies so young and my star is caramel, an exquistley short duration [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Virtual sugar is better for your teeth and pancreas.

    I consider myself a true hedonist: driven by the pleasure principle. Too much sugar in too short a time makes me feel ill. Feeling ill is not pleasurable. Therefore I generally prefer the longer cookie duration or a larger wad at once of not so sweet stuff.

    In fact, I have been known to pass up the cookies for a sure plate of french fries. With cookies I worry that they will be lost, that the next batch will get burnt, that someone will tell me it's a regular cookie and sneak in one of those horrid saccharin filled low calorie cookies the next day after I agreed to eat the reasonable cookie, oh the list just goes on. So there are times when I would much rather just take the plate of french fries and forget the cookies. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Webmistress, you reminded me of the dentist. Thanks a lot [img]tongue.gif[/img] [img]tongue.gif[/img]

    French Fries, no thanks. But I actually DO prefer a bag of CHEE-TOS to the kind of cookies in this thread [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] Or chow mein noodles...

    Although chow mein noodles with a Hershey's Chocolate bar melted and drizzled on top are much nicer! Mmmmmm....

    PS If somebody switched a real cookie on me for a piece of saccharinated ecch they would be soooo dead... I've had that happen and put it like this, it doesn't happen anymore!!! (No, all you literalists out there, I didn't really commit murder [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] )

    Leader,
    Saccharin cookies being my analogy for "bait and switch" by merchants. Burnt batches of cookies, well you get the picture.

    And lack of cookies, well I *do* always have sales at Amazon!

    Well most of my comments still hold then. Saccharinated cookies of that type are likely to be IGNORED, left in the back of the cupboard until they rot [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Although I would insist on cookies with that type of meal [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] I don't want to have to choke down what I'm trying to eat to get the good out of it!

    Oreo's or any cookies with chocolate have a short cookie duration for me.

    Give me something rich and not too sweet like a Pecan Sandie and ohh la la my cookie duration goes up 1000x..... the only question is dunk it in milk, coffee or a nice hot cup of Earl Grey???

    Yummy -- heading for the cupboard....

    I see they came up with fudge covered oreos?

    I think that's unethical and doesn't sound very good to me.

    Cookie duration should not be shortened!<IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon8.gif>

    Hello, I am new here but had to add my 2 cents. I would have to say that Oreo's are not one of my favorites. So I would pick a twix it's like a cookie. I enjoy a good cookie experience so I would go for the 15 minute duration. I always say it's not how long it last, but instead how good it is...

    FYI - A Cookie in "our" terms is the amount of time that a merchant specifies to credit us for a sale from one of our sites.

    That being said, I prefer Butterfingers [img]tongue.gif[/img]

    Cookies are okay when there is nothing else, but nothing beats a nice, bakery fresh
    Napoleon and a cup of tea !
