How did Leaf® bring back Hydrox® Cookies?
After we acquired Hydrox® in 2015, we rolled back the formula to GET RID of the high fructose corn syrup, replacing it with REAL cane sugar and removed the hydrogenated oils as well. In addition, as of February 2017, we also wanted to create a 'cleaner label' for our customers so we got rid of all artificial flavors and GMOs so Hydrox is now non-GMO as well! You can enjoy 'America's original sandwich cookie', Hydrox® made in the USA and know what's in it. We're kinda proud of that!
America’s first chocolate sandwich cookie Hydrox®.
Hydrox® is the original creme-filled chocolate sandwich cookie! It debuted in 1908 and was manufactured by Sunshine® Biscuits. Sunshine Biscuits was purchased by Keebler® in 1996, and in 1999, Keebler® replaced Hydrox® with a similar but reformulated product named Droxies®. Keebler® was later acquired by Kellogg's® in 2001. Kellogg's removed Droxies® from the market in 2003.
Leaf® Brands is proud to bring back the original sandwich cookie, Hydrox®! Yep, it predated Oreo and was always free of animal fats. The new Hydrox® release is exactly the way you remember it, circa 1908 to 1999. It tastes like the original Hydrox® you remember; less sweet than the others and those amazing crispier cookies! Look for them throughout the US!
