Study: Oreos as Addictive as Cocaine

Tell us something we don’t already know. A new study by undergraduates at Connecticut College has found that Oreos, and their creamy white filling in particular, are very addictive. So addictive, in fact, that lab rats in their study were just as focused on obtaining Oreos as they were powerful drugs like cocaine and morphine. The study was intended to show how addiction to foods with lots of fat and sugar is a significant part of the obesity epidemic.
