Nothing Compares To You: Hydrox Doubles

Monday June 21stNothing compares to you Category

Finally I had lucked out.  My Dad, who kept what I call “pretend kosher”, would only let my sisters and I eat Hydrox and never Oreos.   (We also couldn’t eat Ritz crackers but could have Hi-Hos).  So when the awesomeness knows as Hydrox Doubles came out we felt like we were eating what normal kids ate.   And these were good : )

I think this packaging is effective because it maintains the band of yellow at the top to display the Sunshine name and logo, but also leaves plenty of room for the product design.
The words “Hydrox” and “Doubles”  are both in a kind of bubble font that emanates fullness.  There is a nice clear graphic of the cookie with the top off so you you can see what makes this product different than a regular Hydrox.  Also I really like the strong difference in colors between the varieties.  From the store shelf, it’s easy to identify what flavor is in the package.  Personally, Chocolate Fudge was my favorite.
What do you think?

    I LOVED Hydrox!!! Never saw the Doubles tho. Loved the Hi Drox! commercials.

    I was DEVASTATED when Sunshine was bought out by Keebler and changed them to ‘Droxies (stupid name), they changed the look of the cookie to reflect the name and that changed the texture of the cookie. Then they stopped making them altogether. A few years ago they brought them back for a 100th anniversary, I was so excited I bought 2 bags – not quite the same cookie tho.

    Sidenote: how can you have a 100th anniversary of something was discontinued for years?? Discuss….

    Yes, you can have a 100th anniversary of something that has been discontinued for years. Still, if I had Hydrox Doubles to eat, I think I’d like them too. :-D Does anyone know when Hydrox Doubles were discontinued? I don’t know. :-|

    I don’t remember these at all. How was the mint? I would buy those first if I still could.

    Do you know Hydrox will be back (in it’s original formulation) in less than 60 days? We took out the high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated oils and also rolled back the formula way back to the time it was a REAL Hydrox. Please visit our Facebook page for updates:
