Oreo and Double Stuf

Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookie:
Oreo Double Stuff Chocolate Sandwich Cookie.

Oreos are awesome.  You'd be hard pressed to find another cookie that comes close to the goodness of an Oreo on a day-in day-out basis.  They are universally awesome and though I have no proof of it, are probably responsible for the end of the Cold War.  Reagan: Get rid of your nukes!  Gorbachev: NO! Reagan: We'll give you as many Oreos as you'd like.  Gorbachev: Hey, what do I care from nukes.  Send over the cookies and that chocolate making milk rabbit.  Having said that I do have one problem with them.  Why is it that Oreos that come in small packs (like out of a vending machine) taste different than those that come out of a large pack (like you get at the grocery store).  Whatever the reason, the difference is noticeable and not appreciated.  Given that Double Stuf cookies are the same thing as an Oreo, simply with more creamy goodness, you'd think that they would then rate equally well or even better.  You'd be wrong.  This is especially perplexing as the way I eat an Oreo every time (and I do mean EVERY time), is to twist one of the cookie sides off of two Oreos and then put the two halves together.  Which effectively makes a Double Stuf.  Only it doesn't.  Don't ask me why, but I suspect they have a team of scientists trying to figure this out even as we speak.  But the fact remains two Oreos smooshed together = awesome.  One Double Stuf = lacking.  Further making me like the Double Stuf less is how they are stealth packaged to look exactly like regular Oreos.  It's like the people at Nabisco know the Double Stufs don't sell as well, so they hope you'll accidentally pick up a pack thinking it's regular Oreos and then once you get home are slightly saddened as the truth is revealed.  This has happened to me on two separate occasions.  (Not cool Nabisco.)

Oreo: A
Double Stuf: B
