Diet Disaster: Nabisco Confirms the Triple Double Oreo

Triple Double Oreo cookie and packageFirst leaked by a Reddit user as a “pre-release product” to be tested for Nabisco, the Double Triple Oreo is the latest portion-bloated Oreo. Not unlike a Big Mac’s third bun, the new cookie will have a third cookie and two layers of creme, one vanilla and one chocolate.

Nabisco confirmed the rumor with the following statement sent to Today.com:

“This summer, Oreo will introduce a new ‘twist’ on the iconic cookie: the Triple Double Oreo. Three chocolate Oreo wafers with two layers of creme — one classic vanilla, and one chocolate. While we tried our best to safeguard this news, we couldn’t hold back the buzz.”

When these new and ridiculous products get announced, I usually try to estimate how bad it will be for you, based on the composite ingredients. Now, it’s not just a Double Stuf Oreo multiplied by two. One Double Stuf cookie contains 70 calories, and according to LiveStrong, 50 of those calories come from the frosting-like filling. So, each wafer in the Oreo has 10 calories.

  • (Three wafers x 10 calories) + (2 cream fillings x 50 calories) = 130 calories per Double Triple Oreo

I can’t say I feel great about calculating the amount of sugar in the Double Triple Oreo, because the nutrition data provided by Nabisco doesn’t differentiate between the sugar in the filling and the sugar in the wafer. However, it’s probably slightly less than a serving of Double Stuf Oreos, which has 21 grams of sugar. In any case, sugar is the first ingredient in all the Oreo products I know of, and also contain high fructose corn syrup. A two-cookie serving of Double Stuf Oreos also contains seven grams of fat.

One hundred thirty calories might be a reasonable though slightly indulgent dessert if you eat just one. Certainly, there are worse foods on the market, but there’s no doubt that the new Double Triple Oreo will make your blood sugar spike.

Why not put two double-stuffed Oreos together and make a quadruple stuff Oreo?

These are NOT Double Stuf oreos; the triple refers to the number of cookies and the double refers to having two (normal) layers of oreo filling.

According to the package:

1 serving = 1 cookie
Calories = 100
Fat = 4.5g (1.5 saturated)
Sugars = 9g

I don't have any Double Stuffs in front of me for comparison, but the amount of cream filling looks closer to a normal Oreo than a Double Stuff.

Rather than combining two Double Stuffs (and eliminating one wafer), it looks like two normal stuff Oreos were combined.

Not that it makes it healthy, but just to clarify.

This is morally wrong!
If ppl want to combine them, let the ppl do it, but something that seriously bad for you is just morally wrong! IMHO anyway ;-)

This sounds like heaven. Although I probably will be able to resist it because of all the chocolate (not my favorite). If it was peanut butter filled too that would be a different story.
