    As a kid I preferred Hydrox as the taste was milder and more chocolate like. Oreo had a somewhat burnt quality to the cookie taste. However, as I am approaching my 65th birthday, I can’t really eat cookies that have transfats and so much sugar.

    I wish I had known they were bringing back Hydrox back in 2008 because I would have bought some up. I prefer them exclusively over Oreos. I love the slightly salty taste of the creme center and it wasn’t as oily as Oreo’s center either. They did stay crispier in milk as someone already mentioned too which gives it a better texture experience as well (I love crunchy in milk over soggy!) They did everything right except apparently for their marketing. How sad I didn’t get a chance to taste them again before they were gone for what sounds like for good. That is an American tragedy in its own right.

    My brother is 65 and dying of cancer. At this stage we are letting him eat anything he wants. He loves and misses Hydrox cookies as it was a favorite snack my mother shared with me and my 8 siblings as we were growing up. No Oreos for him, but I’m having a hard time finding this delicacy. Now I’m on a mission. Once I find them, I will not only bring him a little joy, but I will also pass this tradition on to my own children.

    I remember Hydrox too, and its filling that was more confectionary and less greasy than Oreo’s. Maybe the name was part of their problem; Hydrox sounds more like an industrial-strength drain cleaner than a delicious chocolate cookie. A Hydrox by any other name would taste as sweet, and probably sell better. How about it, Kellogg’s?

    Hydrox were my favorite when it came to chocolate sandwich cookies. They were much better than Oreos. Had a better chocolate flavor to them. Wish they were still available.

    When the hydrox disappeared from the store shelves in late 90s, I simply quit eating cookies. And when Post Toasties disappeared, I quit eating corn flakes.

    Hydrox all the way.

    Oreos are way to sugary, and about half the weight, (50% air bubbles) due to the brittle honeycomb consistency.

    Perfect case of packaging triumphing over product quality.

    Hydrox over Oreos any day. Never liked the name though. Sounds like a chemical
