It makes me laugh that on 4/20, a story about what can happen when you have nerds with “the munchies” comes out. Scientists at MIT have actually developed a device to test the “optimal way to separate an Oreo.” And by optimal, we mean so that the wafers and cream filling both remain unbroken.
Thanks to the “Oreometer,” researchers have determined the best course of action to accomplish optimal Oreo separation is “rotating while pulling Oreos apart from one side, as a kind of peel-and-twist.” In case you were wondering, they tested regular Oreos as well as the Double and Mega Stuf varieties. Now, can these guys at MIT get back to curing cancer, covid, or developing cars that run on water or something?!
