The best Oreo you can buy

Finding the best Oreo isn't as easy as you'd think

Believe it or not, Oreo cookies have been around for over 100 years. Branded "America's Favorite Cookie," Oreos have defeated countless others (sorry Hydrox), survived two world wars, and become milk's best friend. But it wasn't until recent years that Oreos really became interesting. Or to be more specific, Oreo got weird. In the past few years, there have been 35 variations of Oreo on store shelves, everything from seasonal flavors like watermelon to the extreme logical conclusion of the Oreo itself, the Mega Stuf. That's not counting Oreo standards like Double Stuf, Chocolate, Mint, and of course, the original Oreo.

Many special Oreo flavors are only available for a limited time, whether that's because they are seasonal or just too weird for most people to try more than once, but we were able to round up 18 different varieties. What we did next probably won't shock you: we ate each flavor to find the ultimate Oreo, the one cookie to rule them all. You'll have to watch the video above to find out which Oreo we picked as the winner, and you can vote for your favorite flavor in the poll below.

This won't be the end of the Oreo odyssey either: signs are pointing to things getting even weirder early next year.
