BroBible claims researchers recently studied Oreo cookies to find out how long you should dunk them in milk for. Researchers say three seconds is the optimal time. “Oreos absorbed 50 percent of their potential liquid weight in just one second. After two seconds, they absorbed 80 percent. The number flatlined briefly for a second. After the fourth second, the cookie maxed out.”

A study by Connecticut College reveals that Oreos are as addictive as cocaine. Professor Joseph Schroeder tells CBS he used lab rats to prove his point. “When we looked in the pleasure center of the brain, we found that the Oreo cookies activated the pleasure center more so than cocaine would activate the same center. The study’s findings are being used to explain how humans just can’t avoid eating high-fat treats, lending credibility to the oft-used saying that “[Insert food here] is so good, it’s like crack.”
