Hydrox Devotees Pressure Kellogg To Revive Cookie
"This is a dark time in cookie history," writes Gary Nadeau of O'Fallon, Mo., on a Web site devoted to Hydrox. Some devotees have collected 866 signatures on an online petition demanding that Kellogg bring the cookie back. Others in recent months have reported Elvis-like sightings--and tastings--of the defunct product.
Kellogg acknowledges Hydrox still exists in "crushed cookie form" as a mix-in for yogurt and ice cream--which explains some of the recent sightings--and in "ground cookie meal" for pie crusts. But a Kellogg spokeswoman says the company has not sold the recipe to anybody else, and there are no plans to bring back the cookie.
