21 #MealPrep Ideas That Are Anything but Boring

Hydrox Cookies Are Back!

A couple of months ago, many of you were upset by the death announcement of the Hydrox cookie. Over the past few years, the black and white sandwich cookie had become harder and harder to find until it was practically extinct. However, Hydrox fans have bombarded manufacturer Kellogg, and thanks to consumer demand, the company has decided to bring the cookie back! There's a catch: The cookies will only be around for a limited time — long enough for Kellogg to see how well they sell. Michael E. Allen, the senior VP of marketing for Kellogg snacks, explains:

It's all up to the consumer. If it sells a lot and makes sense for the supermarkets and the grocery stores to keep it on the shelves, then we'll keep making them.

Thus, the fate of the Hydrox cookie lies in the hands of the consumers. Will you help save the cookie? Will you buy Hydrox while you still can?

They must be on the Oreo payroll

OK...Hydrox is way better then Oreo's.  Not so durn sweet.  More crispy.  More chocolate flavor.  BUT!  where in the Haverhill, Mass area can I buy them.  Shaw's won't carry them.  Neither does DeMoulas Market Basket.  AND:  I asked the managers in both stores to get them.  Zero results!  tch tch.

Hydrox smokes oreos no waxy shortening tasting middle and they did make a mint hydrox in the early 70's. I just hope my supermarket will carry them keeblers chocolate sandwich cookie was close but no cigar all you oreo fans that never tried a hydrox don't knock em till you tried them! do a blind taste test dipped in milk you won't be sorry. Step over to the dark side!!!!

This definitely calls for a taste test! The best cookies of this type I've had recently are the Paul Newman brand. They are better for you (ha, ha--no trans fats) and taste better than oreos. I'd try all three in the contest and maybe try the Late July brand, as well.

Hydrox cookies were developed in 1908 to be a cookie for adults, not children. They were always better to me, much less sweet than the fake, starts with a "O". The others also used lard for many years. I will buy Hydrox like crazy when they come back.

Hooray for Hydrox! I always preferred their flavor to Oreos, but unlike Oreos, they never expanded their brand. Which is why I'm a sucker for Double Stuffed Oreos!

growing up we were ONLY ALLOWED to eat hydrox since they were kosher - so i'm really happy that they'll be back even if it's for a limited time. the taste of them is just diff from oreos and i like it better.

I'm quite shocked, I don't think I've ever even had one – I think this calls for a Sugar taste test! (Assuming it goes over better than those scary chocolate Skittles...)

From what I understand people who prefer them over Oreos, prefer them because there is a different ingredient in the creme that doesn't leave that waxy feeling on the roof of your mouth. Not my opinion, just what I heard on the radio in a story about the end of the Hydrox cookie.

Kinda like...water. I like the taste of these better than Oreos, so I'll buy a pack to support the cause.

I LOVE Hydrox. They are just like an Oreo...but better...and more original. The name is funny though...sounds like a chemical.
