      Huh. Not only that, it sounds like Hydrox is better:

      Compared to Oreos, Hydrox cookies have a less sweet filling and a crunchier cookie shell that is less soggy when dipped in milk.

      I find Oreos too sweet and soft.

        Last time I tried Hydrox, arguably many years ago, it seemed to taste and feel like all the generic knockoffs. They would start off crunchy when you first open the pack but would turn soft and stale within a couple days. Oreos seem to stay crispy for literally weeks.

        From personal experience, Hydrox tasted terrible compared to Oreos. My parents switched to Hydrox when I was little because Oreos were being made with lard at the time, and they were barely worth eating. The chocolate cookie part was too hard and chalky.
