Here, representing many hours of data collection, including several notebook-equipped excursions to Cub Foods, I present to you the Comprehensive Oreo Database.
I would like to replace the present system initial licensure exams in secondary mathematics teaching with a single task: Design a mathematics lesson around some or all of this information, including answer key for all tasks.
Until this happens (at which point the information below will be embargoed for test-security purposes), I share it with you.

Send your revisions, and additional Oreo sightings, my way via the comments or Twitter.
Mass per serving in grams similar to fat column? Or left “open to interpretation” on purpose? (Hey kids, what would be a good choice for the missing unit? … a good question to get at students’ conceptual understanding of mass!)
Also, speaking as a Canadian, I am astounded at the choices Oreo offers state-side.

The first. I’ll let you believe that I meant to do this.
