This Oreo Cookie thing is quite lost to those not raised in the USA. Lots of references in popular culture, of course.

I tried one the first time I went to CA as a young adult. Bl****y 'Orrible! Big disappointment.

The Hydrox was a more subtle tasting cookie of the same genre -- the folks from Oreo now own the recipe and it is nowhere to be found -- they had a commemorative Hydrox and it was just an oreo fashioned in a different die.

You did/do not have local similar ones in the UK ?
Regular Oreo can be bought at various places here, both regular shops as wholesale.
But there's still more than one generation around that grew up with the queso version, which may be an early (post-ww2) Oreo clone.

Why some items reach a national trademark status is pretty interesting.
(i'm way too scared to read the annual lb/p mayonaise consumption figure of Cheesica)

Mayonnaise is necessary to consume mussels, is it not? It's the national condiment in Belgium and Holland.

We have velveeta, without which there is no "mac n cheese"

Did you know that Hydrox preceded Oreo?

Not at our house! Bechamel with Cuba cheddar, then after baking, a sprinkle of smoked red savina.

(think ketchup and the US, times 10. In my home, on average >1/3d gallon a week, kcal equivalent of ~1.5gal Velveeta)

If you have to use process cheese (chile con queso, e.g.) Land O' Lakes Extra Melt is better than Velveeta, to my taste buds.

Yes, it was excellent. But it went fast and was gone before I could get back for thirds. It was very much like my brother's, who is vegetarian as well.
