Oreo cookies seem to be a dessert that people can either take or leave. I've eaten them through the years, but only when there was nothing much else sweet to eat. If given a choice, I would definitely choose a real cookie instead! I know, though, that some people really like Oreo cookies and other Hydrox-type cookies, whatever that is.... (Sounds vaguely chemical to me....) By the way, Hydrox cookies have been around for over 100 years now. They celebrated their 100-year anniversary in 2008.
Several years ago we had a family conference at our church. The speaker for those couple of days as Dr. Greg Mazak. One of the things he did as an ice-breaker one evening was to give us the Oreo test. There are all kinds of "psychological tests" out there and I cannot vouch for the accuracy of this one, but it was a fun activity as people stood and then he read what their style of eating an Oreo showed about their personality. Here's the test for you to enjoy.
The Oreo Personality Test
Psychologists have discovered that the manner in which people eat Oreo cookies provides great insight into their personalities. First choose which method in the list below best describes your favorite method of eating Oreos. Then scroll down to see what that says about you.
1. The whole thing all at once.
2. One bite at a time.
3. Slow and methodical nibbles examining the results of each bite afterwards.
4. In little feverish nibbles.
5. Dunked in some liquid (milk, coffee...).
6. Twisted apart, eat the inside, then the cookie.
7. Twisted apart, eat the inside, and toss the cookie.
8. Just the cookie, not the inside.
9. I just like to lick them, not eat them.
10. I don't have a favorite way because I don't like Oreos.
1. The whole thing all at once. This means you consume life with abandon, you are fun to be with, exciting, carefree with some hint of recklessness. You are totally irresponsible. No one should trust you with their children.
2. One bite at a time. You are lucky to be one of the 5.4 billion other people who eat their Oreos this very same way. Just like them, you lack imagination, but that's okay, not to worry, you're normal.
3. Slow and methodical. You follow the rules. You're very tidy and orderly. You're very meticulous in every detail with every thing you do to the point of being irritating to others. Stay out of the fast lane if you're going to go just at the speed limit.
4. Feverish nibbles. Your boss likes you because you get your work done quickly. You always have a million things to do and never enough time to do them. Mental breakdowns and suicides run in your family. Valium and Ritalin would do you good.
5. Dunked. Every one likes you because you are always up beat. You like to sugar coat unpleasant experiences and rationalize bad situations into good ones. You are in total denial about the shambles you call a life. You have a propensity towards narcotic addiction.
6. Twisted apart, eat the inside, and then the cookie. You have a highly curious nature. You take pleasure in breaking things apart to find out how they work, though not always able to put them back together, so you destroy all the evidence of your activities. You deny your involvement when things go wrong. You are a compulsive liar and exhibit deviant, if not criminal, behavior.
7. Twisted apart, eat the inside, and then toss the cookie. You are good at business and take risks that pay off. You take what you want and throw the rest away. You are greedy, selfish, mean, and lack feelings for others. You should be ashamed of yourself. But that's ok, you don't care, you got yours. (And be careful about tossing your cookies!) 8)
8. Just the cookie, not the inside. You enjoy pain.
9. I just like to lick them, not eat them. Stay away from cats and other small furry animals and seek professional medical help — immediately.
10. I don't have a favorite way, I don't like Oreo cookies. You probably come from a rich family, and like to wear nice things, and go to up-scale restaurants. You are particular and fussy about the things you buy, own, and wear. Things have to be just right. You like to be pampered. You are a prima donna. There's just no pleasing you.
For those of you who can't get enough Oreos, here's a product that you might enjoy — Oreo toothpaste!
How about you, do you like Oreo cookies? Was this quiz accurate for you? 😀
I mentioned in an earlier post that one of our former "campus sons" has published a book. Here's a message from the author with a couple of links I hope you'll follow up.
As we approach Veterans Day on Wednesday, November 11th, please take the time to thank or remember a Veteran who has served, fought, was wounded or died on our behalf. Thank you to all those Veterans who have served and provided me and my family with FREEDOM. Please see the link below to a video review of the new book Inherited Freedom, by Tim Drake .
Tim is going to be in the Campus Store on November 11 for a book signing. I hope that those of you who live in the Greenville area will drop by to check it out.
Becka is having a very nice time up in Michigan with Megan, Jim, and Drew. Here's a picture Megan posted on her blog.
I may not have any more pictures to post until Becka's back home — Meg and Jim's laptop died this past weekend.

I wonder what they used for the crust on cheese cakes before Oreos.
