Back in the ‘80s, people ate a lot of processed foods. These days, we’re much more informed about just how unhealthy some of those foods really were. Yahoo reports that “Oreo Big Stuf” were actually one ‘80s foods which should never make a comeback.
Each of the cookies was about three inches in diameter, and clocked in with 319 calories and 13 grams of fat, which is quite a bit when you consider this: One serving of regular Oreos (which is 3 cookies) comes in at 160 calories and 7 grams of fat. Oreo Big Stuf was discontinued in 1991.
Some think the product was pulled due to the USDA’s 1980 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, but that hasn’t been confirmed.
The treat was released in 1984 and promised to deliver “more chocolate and more crème” than the original Oreo.
These days you can get your fix with Oreo Mega Stuf—just two of those cookies come in at 180 calories, 9 grams of fat, and 17 grams of sugar. Yeeeeouch.
