After almost ten years I think since I last saw one, Hydrox Cookies, the original and best sandwich cookie are back!!

http://www.hydroxcookies.com/

Saw some in the local supermarket today, bought some and right away with the first taste got a reminder of how much better they are than Oreos. (though I'll admit there's some family pride involved since my grandfather was once CEO of Sunshine Biscuits. In our house growing up, Oreo was a dirty word!)

Ah, Hydrox. The 101 Strings of Junk Food!

Haha, I don't know if many know this, but I actually work for Kelloggs Snacks (which owns Sunshine, Keebler, Murray, and Kashi). Only our district managers knew about the Hydrox re-release and they sneaked them into our orders this past week. Thus far, in the Atlanta area, only Wal-Mart is carrying them; and they are only $2.50!

I don't want to rain on Eric's picnic, but I managed to grab two cases of twelve packs when I stopped by our distribution center on Friday. Oh yeah, I didn't pay a penny. wink

Harlan Ellison wrote a very witty and concise essay about the superiority of Hydrox cookies over Oreos back in the 1980's, and I'm damned If I can remember which of his books it's in. More to come....

I loved these cookies when I was a kid. And NeHi orange soda and vanilla Junket pudding and Hollywood candy bars. I hope to see Hydrox in my area, soon. smile

Castile, if you can't find them at any of your favorite local grocery chains, check a Wal-Mart in the area. We usually release our new products there first (and some of them don't even make it outside of Wal-Mart).

In that case, I'll make sure to grab some more (free) cases of Hydrox.

I do believe they have a strict "No Sharing" policy in the fiery pits of Hell. big grin

Not the most appealing name-Hydrox?

Sounds like something you'd poison rats with.

From the Hydrox website.

"all they needed was a name for their new cookie that went well with sunshine. They thought of water, because water and sunshine are elements of purity and cleanliness, and thus combined water’s elements, hydrogen and oxygen, for the Hydrox cookie’s unique (and much debated) name."

Makes sense. After all, just what *is* an "oreo"???

I never knew they went away

and I haven't had one in about 15 years.

this thread reminds me that I really ought to try them again.

Ouch!

That bunny rabbit picture is hard to look at when the spelling mistake of "RELEVANT" is so large-scale!!!


Hydrox cookies are poison---or so my father, who was a General Manager of Nabisco, always told me. smile


"Oreo" cookies are named after the "Oreo Borealis", of course. smile

relevant is misspelled on purpose.

part of that whole lolcat thing where everything is misspelled.

but anyway. big grin

I got mine last week. One of the joys of childhood and a necessity for survival in college. Less sweet than its doppleganger and still "welevant."

I adore Newman-O's myself.

These things are like crack.

Well, for those wanting their Hydrox fix, you'll need to be looking for this package:

You'll never catch that dragon, man. One cookie is not enough and a thousand are too many.

You mean Ellison wrote about the superiority of something other than himself???

Junket pudding! My God, I'd forgotten all about that! I used to LOVE that stuff! Do they even make it anymore? Doubt it, but I'd love to have some. Mmmmmmmm...Hydrox cookies and Junket! smile
