This is very important research…
If you ever laid awake at night wondering if Oreos taste different in Canada than in the US you’re apparently not alone. You can add Oreos to the list of things that do taste better in Canada (Heinz Ketchup for instance) and I’ll show you why. For starters they look different, the American cookie is made by Nabisco and have the triangle shaped Nabisco logo on top. The Canadian version is made by Mr Christie and just have a “flowery” design. The packages are different too with Canadian Oreos coming in a bag type container with those bendy-foldy-over twist ties on top. Down here you get your cookies in a flat package that peels back on top and re-sticks. Now for the most important part, the taste, Canadian Oreos are made with real sugar while in the US you’ll be eating high fructose corn syrup, Canadian Oreos also have coconut oil in them which might be the reason for the slightly softer cookie.
* The Star had an article recently for the 100th anniversary of the Oreo and you can watch a tour of the factory in Montreal where the Canadian Oreos are made. (at 3000 cookies/min or 1 Billion/year)
