Ever since I read about the most stuf Oreo being released, I have been wishing and hoping and dreaming that it might arrive in Canada one day. Well, first I contemplated purchasing them on Amazon for the not-so-bargain-and-bordering-on-unconscionable price of $30CDN (plus shipping!), then I somehow managed to access a tiny shred of reason that convinced me otherwise, then I sulked for a while, and then I sort of forgot about them entirely until my better half came back from the grocery store on Friday telling me he thought he saw them. Could it really be true?
I was horrified that he hadn’t immediately bought a package. Surely they would sell out and my most stuf Oreo dreams would once again go unfulfilled. I still cannot comprehend why he doesn’t think with the same sense of scarcity that I do. Alas, he is fortunate that supplies were still amply stocked as of the following day…and that the world is not apparently as obsessed with frosting-like substances as I am. My internet searches now tell me they’ve been out in Canada since March 5th, so aside from missing out on a month’s worth of sugar comas, I can only conclude that there will be no mad rush on most stuf Oreos in Canada. Phew.
But let’s get back on track. And so, on Saturday I arrived home with a package of most stuf Oreos delicately balanced atop my bag of groceries, to avoid any potential cookie breakages of course, and highly eager to explore just how stuffed these most stuf Oreos might be.
I was immediately driven to capture all manner of data for any other Oreo fanatics out there. I even hauled out my measuring tape and kitchen scale. I thought I was ahead of the curve on really analyzing the most stuf Oreo, but I should have known in today’s world someone would already have done that, and done it better. For a full analysis of all range of Oreos, I highly recommend you check out this post. For the more sane and less obsessive of you, continue on and read my infinitely less detailed and scientific analysis.
Your standard issue Oreo weighs in at .5 ounces, and because the only standard issue Oreo I had in my possession was being stored in the freezer, I wasn’t able to cleanly separate cookie from creme to weigh the filling on its own. Further, the creme was so minimal that it was virtually impossible to measure with a tape measure. I estimate somewhere in the area of 2mm. You can already see how lacking my approach was in terms of true scientific method. Let’s be honest, the science was secondary and I mostly just wanted to get on with eating the cookies.
The most stuf cookie weighed in at a slightly disappointing .7 ounces. However, the creme alone accounted for .5 ounces of total weight. If you’re into math, that’s 71.4% creme. That, my friends, is a worthy creme to wafer ratio. It’s also 8mm thick which pretty much is like a quadruple standard Oreo. Now we’re talking.
But what I was really most interested in was the taste. Here’s what I can tell you: if you, like me, see the cookie wafer as an utter waste of your time, you will of course love a most stuf cookie. That’s a no brainer. What I wasn’t prepared for was the slightly softer and smoother creme filling. I am convinced that the creme filling recipe has been ever so slightly altered in the most stuf Oreo, and for the better. While it still bears no resemblance to actual frosting, it is decidedly more frosting-like and less fondant-like than original Oreos. I also found that the cookie wafers separated much more cleanly from the creme, allowing you to more easily choose your own adventure with cookie-to-creme ratios.
For those who are curious, my preferred ratio is as follows: one chocolate wafer to two most stuf creme centers. If your face is aghast with horror, you can join the judgment corner with my better half, who looked at my concoction with a combination I can only describe as disgust and sadness. I will ignore you just as I ignored him and proudly embrace my limitless sweet tooth. It has taken me decades to finally find my ideal creme-to-cookie-wafer ratio and I will not be shamed. Thank you most stuf Oreos for finally coming to Canada, and for finally allowing me to create my own ultimate Oreo. What a world we live in.
