My mom sent me a box of American Oreos a few weeks ago & I have been rationing them carefully. There are a few major differences between American & Canadian Oreos. In Canada, the cream is made with icing sugar & is much softer, but the cookie itself is MUCH crunchier, & if you are a cookie dipper (which I am), you have to SOAK that cookie in milk to soften it even slightly! American Oreos, have a firmer middle, & the cookies dissolve much quicker in milk. There’s a quick 2 dunk limit if you are eating American Oreos, otherwise your cookie will fall apart into your milk. PChad prefers Canadian Oreos, & I prefer American. It comes down to what we grew up with, so having both kinds in the house, which will our kids prefer?
We had a pack of each country’s national Oreo in the house, & the kids wanted to have one of each. I’m not sure they could tell that they were different, but 2 cookies is better than one, right? So, I pointed out which was which for Chancery…
Me: “These are American Oreos, and those are Canadian Oreos. Which ones do you like best?”
C: “I like the American ones.”
Me: “Those are my favourite too.”
C: “They’re so soft!”
