  • Hydrox has the be the worst name for a cookie, ever. The only reasonable product that should be named Hydrox is either medicine or drain cleaner.

  • Actually that's actually true I know because when I was working at a store that was selling hydrox cookies they told me to purposely hide the cookies behind the Oreo cookies so that no one could buy the hydrox cookies or they would make me put them at the highest point or the lowest point so that people wouldn't look at them

  • Fun fact about Kosher Food (meat): It has a very real application in the real world. In ancient days you had to watch out what you eat because meat often turned bad (pigs for example). So kosher was basically to prevent people from eating bad meat.

  • Matpat you think you forgot something *M U S L I M* Let me explain: if you are Muslim you are not allowed to eat pork because it's HARAM (forbidden) so if a product has a label HALAL you can eat it Because pork is in the HARAM section, Muslim would not eat it, and not like Jewish, Muslim much more strict, you eat HARAM? you got punished , hope this explain everything Disclaimer HALAL and HARAM isn't same HALAL mean you can eat it HARAM mean you can't eat it
