First off, let me introduce you to the new The Southern Geek logo. You might have noticed the logo on the banner on the top of the page. I think I designed a great logo!
Have you heard that the Double Stuf Oreo does not contain double the creme of the original Oreo cookie? A high school math class in New York found that the Double Stuf Oreo are not really double-stuffed. Dan Anderson, a math teacher from Queensbury, NY, assigned his students an experiment to see whether Oreo Double Stuf Cookies contain twice as much creme filling as their original counterparts.
After weighing and measuring, the students concluded that Double Stuf Oreos contain only 1.86 times as much filling. what a shame. When I get a Double Stuff Oreo, I am expecting to eat double the creme, not 1.86 of 2.00. Anyway, this has sparked controversy online as people want their money’s worth of a product. Even Shepard Smith from Fox News was none too pleased about not actually getting double the stuf.
Subway had their own controversy as someone posted a picture of a footlong sandwich only being 11 inches long. Subway eventually got the problem corrected after many people complained. So I hope Oreo and Nabisco will go back to make sure you are actually getting double the stuf in a Double Stuf Oreo cookie. I want my double the creme!
And another favorite product is back on the shelves. Guess what, the Twinkie is back! Last Year, Hostess Brands closed down and all of our favorite snack foods like the Twinkie went away. Here’s video of me enjoying my final Twinkie from last year.
Now the Twinkie is back! This Summer, all the Hostess Brands favorites returned to the store shelves. And now I can enjoy my Twinkie fix once again! The new Twinkie is smaller and has fewer calories than the original Twinkie, which I like. The Twinkie is a product that is an American icon!
So Oreo, please fix the Double Stuf Oreo! And Hostess, please continue making the Twinkie! America will thank you!
