We thought that normal Oreos were pretty great all by themselves. But then they introduced not just double stuffed, but mega stuffed versions. Oh, and the red velvet cake flavour, and the peanut butter flavour.
Any new type of Oreo announcement is generally enough to whip any snack food enthusiasts into a frenzy.
However, their latest announcement has got people reacting for all the wrong reasons. They’re maker Oreos smaller. Why!?
Speaking to the Associated Press, a senior director for the Mondelez International company said:
“They’re for adults, Oreo says they weren’t designed to be twisted open or dunked. That’s even though about half of customers pull apart regular Oreos before eating them, according to the company.”
So, not only are they taking away all of our fun, but they’re also making our snack time go-to smaller? Wtf Oreos? We are displeased. As are many others on the internet apparently.Some going to so far as to say Oreo Thins are promoting unrealistic standards for biscuit body image. We're not even kidding, this is a very serious issue.

It got us thinking about some of the changers our favourite foods have undergone, and how these changes have upset us, such as:
The great Freddo price increase.
The travesty that was reduced size Dairy Milk
The tearful goodbye to Big Time bars
The Fat Frog disappearance.
The fact that penny sweets are simply no more. 5c for a fried egg? No thank you!
The short-lived joy that was entire bowls of food colouring and sugar for breakfast before Lucky Charms were ripped from us.
Why must they take everything we love!?
