In case you didn't already know that Oreos are addictive, a group of scientists have solidified this belief.

A Connecticut College professor and his students discovered that Oreos and cocaine are not really that different when it comes to their addictive levels in an experiment that involved lab rats. In the study, they found that Oreos "activated more neurons in the rat's brain’s 'pleasure center' than exposure to cocaine or morphine," according to The Kansas City Star.

This research supports the theory that foods with high levels of sugar and fat stimulate the brain the same way drugs do, which explains why it's so hard for some people to resist these tasty treats.

Makes you not want to pick up an Oreo, doesn't it?
