My Oreo Addiction

Updated on December 12, 2012

It's that holiday time of the year as I'm sure everyone is aware...and like most Americans I love to indulge in the usual holiday treats and of course that includes the occasional (well in my case, not so occasional) partaking of the good old American cookie...but as you may have surmised from the JPEG to your immediate right...

We're talking the Oreo!

I begrudgingly admit that I have a sweet tooth (and my wife courageously continues to try and keep me reigned in) for many snacks but the cookie...well it's my Waterloo if you will, especially the Oreo cookie.

But I'm not alone, as a matter of fact a friend of mine was on Facebook last night and happily informed anyone who may have noticed that she was having some Oreo with some milk...yummm.

But what exactly is it about this little cookie that has that cream frosting between two crisp cookies that when combined together cause weaker people (like myself) to intake "Mass Quantities" of the Oreo?

Is it the fact that at this time of year, there is the "Holiday" variety?

Is it the allure of a Oreo Holiday Tin (something that my wife loves to collect) that subconsciously drives that inner child into wanting just one more Oreo with my Hot Chocolate?

Just the other day we were grocery shopping and in that grocery store (and on sale mind you) was the newest variety of Oreo, the "Triple Double" a phenomenal cookie.

Imagine my delight to feast on a cookie that featured three crisp cookies layered between two layers of heavenly white and chocolate cream...I wasn't supposed to open them before my wife did..needless to say that I not only opened them, I had four or five of them.

I actually had to go out the next day and purchase the package of Oreos that you see in that picture, just so I wouldn't eat my wife's package.

Honestly, there's no rhyme or reason why I enjoy the Oreo, I just do.

Remember that age old question when we were growing up about the Tootsie Pop?

How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie center of a tootsie roll pop without biting into the center?

I wonder if the world still doesn't know exactly just how many bites?

I hope that you've all enjoyed this little bit of cookie go out and get your own package of Oreos and have a few later with a nice seasonal brew of Hot Chocolate or a Holiday Tea...that's how I enjoy the handful...sorry dear.

      See, I'm trying to save some for later this evening after I get my wife from her job with a cup of Celestial Seasonings "Nutcracker Sweet" Black Tea.

      Funny how something as simple as a cookie can be so relateable by so many people isn't it?

      Thanks for the comment and I'm glad that you enjoyed the read.
