I only have one problem with them but it can be easily prevented. The red filling stains the carpet very easily. I never worry about putting cookies up out of reach as my kids are good about only taking one or two at a time. They are not good about staying at the table when eating their cookies though. It took me a day to figure out why I had red stains in my carpet until my youngest sat by the couch with her cookie and a little piece broke off. I noticed that the stain matched the piece of filling that had fallen onto the floor. This will not prevent me from buying another box, just enforce the eating them at the table rule. I recommend trying them if you like Oreo cookies, just watch the kids with them so you do not get stains on the carpet.

Ice sports have a host of health and fitness benefits. Skating helps improve co-ordination and balance, burning 450-600 calories an hour – or 950 if you’re speed skating. Leg strength is helped by regular ice skating and, according to a study in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research, taking up regular ice hockey can increase bone density.
To safeguard your Ice Hockey Equipment, a carrier to store it in is required. Ice hockey bags are available in various shapes and sizes and can be found in most sports shops.
