    According to this site, Hydrox are not being made anymore. This was a link provided by Roadfooder chicagostyledog.

      OK, I heard they were going to make a limited run. Did anyone else hear this? I've been keeping an eye on my cookie aisle, but nothing so far.

          Hydrox have a cocoa flavor.
          Oreos have a chocolate flavor.
          The Hydrox filling is less sweet and has a more subtle vanilla flavor. Also, the filling is not made from pig lard.

            Here's the ingredient list for Oreos from the Nabisco website:

            SUGAR, ENRICHED FLOUR (WHEAT FLOUR, NIACIN, REDUCED IRON, THIAMINE MONONITRATE [VITAMIN B1], RIBOFLAVIN [VITAMIN B2], FOLIC ACID), HIGH OLEIC CANOLA OIL AND/OR PALM OIL AND/OR CANOLA OIL, COCOA (PROCESSED WITH ALKALI), HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, BAKING SODA, CORNSTARCH, SALT, SOY LECITHIN (EMULSIFIER), VANILLIN-AN ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR, CHOCOLATE.

            Was wondering which one of those things was the "secret word" for "pig lard."

              Great! I always new there was a reason for eating Oreo's and not, Hydrox.

                FYI.. Oreo (and many other nabisco products) converted to full Kosher recipes and certifications some time ago.

                  I don't think the filling had lard; the lard was the shortening. (though there were other "pig" products in many of the foods besides the shortening, such as gelatins and such, so may the creme had that?)

                  Severall of Hostess products in the northeast began bearing Kosher symbols as well, as they are actually made in the Drake bakery, due to the merger. However, when Hostess changed over to the new redesigned labels not too long ago, the Kosher labels were dropped, and the beef fat reappeared. (and any animal fat is unkosher, not just pig). So they are probably still kosher; they just haven't produced the special regional packaging yet.
