Summer QoTD #9

The name of this product was chosen to convey purity and goodness, and was derived from the component elements of water. However, history remembers the product as a has-been, since it was over-shadowed by a copy-cat introduced by Nabisco in 1912. The Nabisco product copied not just the look and taste, but was also designed and branded in a similar manner. Further, the name of the copy-cat was derived from the name of the flower which adorned the original product. The only saving grace for the original product was that it was a popular alternative among a particular orthodox community, since it had a certain certification.

What are the two products in question? What certification did the OG product have?

  1. This is indeed Hydrox and Oreos. The original hydrox cookies had the oreodaphne flower embossed on them.
    Hydrox were fairly popular among orthodox Jews since the cookie was kosher certified.
