Let’s clear something up before we get into the list of Oreo knock off brands. Oreo is a knock off brand. That’s right, Oreo wasn’t the original!
Hydrox was actually the first creme-filled chocolate sandwich cookie. It was launched in 1908 by Sunshine Biscuits, which is now a division of Kellogg’s who most notably makes the popular cracker brand, Cheez-It.
Hydrox are still being made but the cookies are now manufactured by Leaf Brands. They are hard to find. In fact, we have never seen them in the many grocery stores we visited through the years.
The best place to purchase them seems to be Amazon if you wish to try the original.
Oreo first hit store shelves in 1912 to capitalize off the success of Hydrox. As time passed, Oreos overtook Hydrox in popularity to where many people started to assume that Oreo was the original.
So, the title of this article should be “Hydrox Knock Off Brands” except no one would visit this webpage if we titled it that. Anyway, you get the point!
Let’s get into the various cookies that look like Oreos or Hydrox but aren’t actually those cookies…
