As I was plowing through my secret stash of Oreos today, I remembered this news from earlier in the month:

Connecticut College students and a professor of psychology have found “America’s favorite cookie” is just as addictive as cocaine – at least for lab rats. And just like most humans, rats go for the middle first.

While this is still preliminary research, I will tell you that I have sampled a certain faux Oreo and have not clawed the bag open with the same junkie-like behavior.
