I never really liked Oreos to be honest. I was always a president's choice/ chips ahoy sort of girl.

They say that Oreos are 'American's favourite cookies' - that's how its tagline goes. Is this really true? xD

I like Oreos with milk. Though without milk is good too. Sometimes I still get cravings for Oreos but when I am not in a craving they're just your average cookie to me.

Who remembers the "Twist Lick Dunk" slogan associated with Oreo?

I never ate my Oreos that way tbh, and I've since seen all the new variants they put out over the last few years, like chocolate-flavored cream and now, extra cream. They even had a strawberry-flavored cream one at some point.

I also once remember they had these wafers with chocolate coating. It wasn't all that great tbh.

Get out wafers are amazing. Though honestly with covered wafers it depends on the flavor.

I used to twist the oreo apart, and then eat the cream first, or eat the twisted cookie first, then the cookie with the cream afterwards.

I like Oreo, even though I have my own way of eating it, by twisting the Oreo, eating the cookie and then later the cream. Two of my favorite Oreo variations are the ones with peanut mixed with chocolate as the cream, and the variation where the cookie is golden instead of black.

Whenever I tried twisting an Oreo, the two cookie pieces almost always broke in half in my fingers, or it never got properly twisted. :c I've never had the real feel of successfully twisting, licking and dunking an Oreo in milk before. I usually just bite the normal C-shapes into the whole cookie or stuff the entire thing into my mouth. xD

I'm not American, but I call biscuits biscuits and cookies cookies. For me, biscuits are mostly dry and crunchy whereas cookies are mostly moist, soft and crumbly and filled either with cream or chocolate chips and nuts. The difference is very huge. According to this, Oreos are most definitely cookies as they are soft and crumbly. :3

Oh, and I call that in the picture...uh....a biscuit, I guess. xD

I really hate those raisin cookies that looks like chocolate chip cookies. I take a bite thinking it's my favorite type of cookie (chocolate chip) and it turns out to be raisins..

I don't eat cookies and the like very often. c:

Wow, okay. My father was just in the next room, pretending to dance. So, of course, I teasingly made fun of him. He turned around and snapped "I'm white! what the h--- do you want from me?"

I don't mind raisin cookies, but I only have a problem with them when I'm craving for chocolate chip cookies and they end up being raisin cookies >.<

Sorry but raisin cookies sound nasty. Chocolate Chip or nothing.

never had raisin cookies, but I really like raisins in general, so I guess I would like them in cookies as well. XD
We almost never get chocolate chip cookies here, usually just cake or shortbread biscuits (Uhm we call them "spritsen" in Dutch, not sure about the translation.)

Apparently haha. It was just funny because he went from joking around to scowling and swearing at me within seconds.

I won't be around as much today. I'm going to be stuck in the classes I mentioned before. Time to go be hated by multiple people. Yay. I:

I know that depending on where we live we say cookie or biscuit, but I've always wondered what people in the UK and elsewhere call these:

Spoiler:



Muffins? Rolls? Pastries? What?
