The chocolate flavor was subtler than Oreos, as befits a cookie aimed at an adult palette. The filling was smaller than an Oreo but that did not matter. It tasted better and did not have the disturbing after-feel of Oreo's white stuff.
Agreed! I just bought the renewed Hydrox cookiesa few weeks back, and I do like them better than Oreo's, too.
And you know what I do to compensate for the smaller Hydrox filling?!?
I often make my own "double stuff Hydrox" by taking off the tops/bottoms of them and combining them together!
Note the retro packaging...I'm not crazy about it; it's very subdued, and did'nt exactly jump out from the supermarket shelf at me. And it was stuck on the 2nd shelf from the bottom; somehow it got lousy product placement (it deserves better!)
I went wild and also bought the Famous Amos cookies, and ironically, they tasted VERY much like the Hydrox!
My hips felt huge for a few days afterwards, though!!
Who else likes dipping some of them in milk, too?!?
p.s. Hey, Joanie, if you still can't find the Hydrox in your Baltimore area, I can always send you a few packages. (for a $4.95 flat rate, I can stuff them in a U.S. mail priority envelope..
just e-mail me your address...)
