"Thin" Oreos

Oreos are getting a skinny new look, and its maker says the new cookie is a "sophisticated" snack for grown-ups that isn't meant to be twisted or dunked.

Mondelez International Inc. says it will add "Oreo Thins" to its permanent lineup in the U.S. starting next week. The cookies look like regular Oreos and have a similar cookie-to-filling ratio, except that they're slimmer. That means four of the cookies contain 140 calories, compared with 160 calories for three regular Oreos.

And since they're for adults, Oreo says they weren't designed to be twisted open or dunked. That's even though about half of customers pull apart regular Oreos before eating them, according to the company.

Man, why mess with success ? To be 'more successfuller ?' Does Nabisco recall why new Coke didn't take off so well ?

Most have probably seen the easy way to dunk Oreos without getting your fingertips wet. Insert a fork into the filling and dunk to hearts content - not hard at all.

Thank you for the post.

Then what's the point? Ever since I was a kid, I twisted Oreo's apart and licked the stuff off the cookies before I dunked what was left.
