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.
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.
