Oreos might be some of the best snacks out there. I particularly find nothing better than eating a few Oreos with a glass of milk for breakfast or for my afternoon snack. And how about a Oreo-made dessert?

If you love Oreos, or just want to use them for a recipe, then you might have wondered before how many Oreos are in a package. I have too, and I want to help you find the answer to save you some time and money.

Secondary Ingredients in Oreos

Here are some of the secondary ingredients:

Sugar: it’s used as a preservative for Oreos, but it also intensifies the sweetness of the cookies we know and love.Unbleached Enriched Flour (wheat flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamine mononitrate, vitamin B2 and Folic acid): this is a refined carbohydrate and isn’t absorbed by the body. It is used mostly to allow more shelf life.Canola or Palm Oil: these are monounsaturated fats, and they don’t have any trans fat. These oils are common in baked goods and fried foods, and they are certainly better than trans and saturated fats.Cocoa: this one is processed with alkali in order to reduce bitterness and darken the color.High Fructose Corn Syrup: this ingredient is used to make products extra sweet, it is created by converting dextrose from corn syrup into fructose. HFCS might be one of the hardest ingredients for our bodies to digest and thus isn’t recommended for consumption.Leavening: like most baked goods, Oreos have either baking soda or calcium phosphate.Soy Lecithin: this ingredient has a creamy texture that is used to emulsify fats in baked goods.Vanilla Flavoring: this one is used because of its rich flavor and because it’s more cost effective than natural vanilla flavor.Chocolate: it is made primarily of cocoa butter and cocoa solids.

Now, it’s hard to avoid all these ingredients as most products have a mix of at least 2 of these, and sometimes all of them. Oreos taste delicious, but you should consume them with care and restraint. If you want, you can always make your own version of Oreos at home.

I Want New Flavors!

Don’t worry, Oreos aren’t just chocolate and cream. If you’re not a chocolate fanatic, or simply want a change, you can also find a very large variety of flavors for Oreos. Keep in mind though that these vary depending on where you are in the US and in the world.

Here are some of the common and most popular flavors:

Brownie Batter Oreos: chocolate cookies with brownie batter-flavored cream.Chocolate and Dulce de Leche Oreos: only sold in South America these are filled with either chocolate or dulce de leche instead of vanilla cream.Birthday Cake Oreos: vanilla cookies with birthday cake-flavored cream.Lemon Twist Oreos: vanilla cookies with lemon cream filling.Green Tea Oreos: available in China and Japan, the cream filling is green tea-flavored.Milka Oreos: these cookies are filled with Milka chocolate cream.

These are only a few of the flavors available, there are limited edition ones and some only for certain countries, but you won’t want to miss them!
