Which has the right ratio: single-stuffed or double-stuffed Oreos?

No one can question the beauty that is the Oreo cookie, but when it comes to the balance between the sandwich and the cream itself, people have strong opinions. Some say the original single-stuffed Oreos are the perfect ratio of cream to cookie; it's the original after all. But for others, the cream is the main event, and they want more cream to balance the—let's be honest—bland cookie counterparts. Who is right?

There may be infinite flavors of Oreos, but there is no beating the classic. The same goes for the amount of cream sandwiched between the two chocolate cookies. Perhaps you love a birthday cake Oreo when you're in a party mood or a pumpkin spice variety when you're feeling festive, but there is absolutely no arguing that Oreos should be filled with more of the sweet cream that makes them so delicious. 

Over-filling Oreos with more cream ruins the balance. You need a two-to-one ratio of cookie to cream in order to get the perfect crunch, dunk, and lick. According to GourmetCookieBouquets.com: 

Oreo purists want their original cookie just as Nabisco first made it. They want the right amount of cookie crunch and the right amount of creamy center. Throw off the balance and there's too much cream to scrape off with your teeth once you twirl the Oreo cookies open; So they say.

There is such a thing as too much of a good thing. As soon as the quantity of cream in an Oreo rises, the cookie's quality falls inversely.

No. Just no. Single-stuffed Oreos are only for people whose imaginations are too small to see what is possible in the world of Oreo cookies. Some argue that double-stuffed Oreos lack subtlety—that they hit you in the face with so much cream that you can't appreciate the treat as a whole. 

This argument is in denial. It's time to face the fact that the cream carries the Oreo cookie. The chocolate wafers are the vessel for the main event; they play a role in providing chocolate, contrast in texture, and general protection from messiness. The cream is rich where the cookie is one chocolatey step above bland, and double-stuffed finally provide the correct ratio of cream to cookie to the masses. As Spoon University puts it: 

The birth of the Double Stuf Oreo changed the way you snack forever. This super-sized cookie overshadows the tired concept of a single stuffed Oreo...Just stating the obvious: single stuffed cookies lack in the cream department. The filling acts as the sugary glue between two chocolatey cookie slices.

No one is arguing in favor of mega-stuffed Oreos here (be reasonable!). Double-stuffed cookies do not deserve their reputation as out of the ordinary; they are the way Oreos were always meant to be.
