Cookie Hardliner Takes Serious Stance Against Creme, Builds “Oreo Separator”

The device severely divides each cookie in half and scrapes off the creme with extreme prejudice. A hatchet is involved.

    I don’t understand people who don’t like the creme in Oreos. I would go in search of an entirely different cookie if that were the case.

    I just realized Cookie Hardliner wasn’t his name.

    Did any of youses Moms buy Hydrox cookies instead of Oreos? THEY ARE NOT THE SAME, MOM!

    I love the Rube Goldberg quality of this. When we were kids, my brother and I had “models” we put together of rube’s machines.

    Erica, I’m with you you, if you hate the creme buy some other cookie.

    Rick, yes. My mom tried to pull that Hydrox stunt several times. She didn’t believe we could tell the difference.

    Hydrox don’t have lard, so they’re kosher. I actually think they taste better, but they are hard to find.

    When I was a kid my mom called saltines “cookies”, non-fat dry milk mixed with tap water was a “milkshake”, and rats were “kittens”.
