A math class at an upstate New York high school has inadvertently stumbled upon what may very well be the scandal of the century: Nabisco's "Double Stuf Oreos" don't actually contain a double helping of stuff.
"Consumer Math" teacher Dan Anderson of Queensbury has been tasked with helping struggling students in get a better grasp of the material. And what better incentive than Oreos?
Anderson came up with a hands-on activity he thought his students would enjoy: Determining whether Double Stuf Oreos truly deliver on the promise of double the iconic creme.
After weighing 10 Double Stuf cookies both with and without their chocolate wafers, the class plugged the numbers into mathematical equations and came up with the horrifying truth: Double Stuf Oreos were only 1.86 times larger than regular Oreos.
