    What's that? These yummy cookies may be more addictive than coke (the powdery kind of coke)? Rats!

    NewsyOh, oh, Oreo. Ever feel like you could eat the whole bag yourself? According to a new study — you’re not a glutton, you’re addicted.

    A student at Connecticut College found lab rats that ate Oreos were just as strongly associated to them as lab rats that were injected with cocaine or morphine. (Via WNCN)

    And, this sounds even more dangerous — eating Oreos activated even more neurons in the “pleasure centers” of rats’ brains than those addicted drugs did. (Via YouTube / Oreo)


    Is the addiction lessened when you add a glass of cold milk as a chaser? We need more research.

    They're only eatable when frozen.

    Wow. I like an occasional Oreo, but the oily waxy coating in my mouth after eating one is enough to make me stop at just one.
