This time, without peanut butter. Without an accompanying glass of soy milk, even. I scraped out the filling and ate them while I walked down the hall. On my way, I ran into co-worker Matt and we started talking about the OTHER generic Oreos: Hydrox cookies.
If you went to summer camp in the 1990s, you probably ate Hydrox cookies. I had them on Shabbat at temple camp, and on just about any day at Girl Scout camp. Unlike Joe Joe’s, the Hydrox was possibly LESS healthy than the Oreo. Or maybe I just thought they were less healthy because Hydrox is a really good name for a detergent.
Actually, the cookies we ate at temple were chocolate and vanilla, and might have been even more generic than the Hydroxies. This was a camp where peanut butter and jelly was the fancy all-camp lunch on Shabbat. (And a temple where a buffet of El Pollo Loco was the fancy Shabbat dinner, back in the day.) (And it was delicious!)
So yeah, sometimes walking around and eating a cookie-snack can lead to memories.
