Oreosis (awr ee oh’ sis) – n. The practice of eating the cream center of an Oreo before eating the cookie outsides.
What simple chocolatey and sweet goodness is an Oreo cookie! This American icon was created by the National Biscuit Company back in 1912, and people have been practicing Oreosis ever since. Since then, Oreos have come in many different colours and even flavours for the seasons and holidays. There was even one stretch when they made an Oreo that turned the milk you dipped them into blue, but that is a different kind of Oreo tradition. A different sniglet for a different day. How Oreosis became a cookie-eating ritual is a mystery, but it is not only done with Oreos, but other kinds of sandwich cookies, where you just need to get to that buttercreme filling first. Hydrox, Do-si-Dos, and other Oreo clones are variations thereof are still eaten using the Oreosis method. DoubleStuf Oreos are especially fun, because with all that sugary filling, you get double the sugar rush, but there are not as many to use Oreosis on in a standard bag due to their larger size. Just about anyone has the skill to use Oreosis, but little ones might need a bit of guidance to get the cookies separated without breaking the creme middles. Older brothers and sisters, it is up to you to guide them properly, because once they get older, then you can indulge in Oreosis racing. This will in turn create a familywide sugar rush, and may the Gods help the parents of these hyped-up kids. They are going to need it.
