QUEENSBURY, N.Y. -- A Queensbury teacher is getting attention for debunking some cookie marketing, while teaching his kids math at the same time.
Dan Anderson assigned his students a mission to find out whether double stuf Oreos really have two-times the filling of the regular cookies.
Students weighed 10 of both the original and the double stuf Oreos.
"Most of them have had practice, as have I, in separating the Oreo in half and getting a clean side, but getting two clean sides off just leaving the stuff was difficult," said Anderson.
The results – the cream filling actually measured out to 1.86 times the original.
Oreo, however, stuck up for its recipe, saying it doubles the "stuf" when compared with the original Oreo cookie.
