So a new study out of Connecticut College as concluded that Oreo’s are as addicting as cocaine!!!!!
I really don’t like the way this is going!! Oreos are not only milk’s favorite cookie…OREOS MY FAVORITE COOKIE!
The study involves lab rats going through mazes (how very original of these scientists)…on one side of the maze was an Oreo and on the other side of the maze was a rice cake…the rats chose the Oreo.
I’m not sure why they needed a science experience to figure that out…If anyone is given the choice between a Rice Cake and an Oreo…everyone is going to pick the Oreo. EVERYONE. And if you’re sitting there saying you wouldn’t, you’re lying. LYING. OREO TRUMPS RICE CAKE 11 TIMES OUT OF 10. PERIOD.
Anyway, the scientists compared their results of the Oreo vs the Rice Cake to a previous study in which the mice were again in a maze and on one side was cocaine and the other side was saline. The mice in that study favored the cocaine.
So therefore, Oreo trumps Rice Cake, Cocaine trumps Saline, and Oreos = Cocaine.
It gets worse!
The researchers found that the Oreos “activated significantly more neurons than cocaine or morphine.”
Why are they trying to ruin Oreos for me?! WHY!?
If they are in fact highly addictive…then my name is Tory and I am an Oreo Addict. It’s been 2 weeks since my last Oreo…and I’m not even sorry about it!!
