Oreo cookie minus trans fat?

The Washington Post conducts a taste test to see whether the new trans-fat-free Oreo cookie can stand up to the original.

Here's what they came up with:
Our tasters found virtually no difference between the two. They praised the original for its good balance between the cream filling and the cookie, its attractive smell and its familiar taste. Trying the new trans-fat-free version, they sensed only slight differences -- a hint more salt and a slightly greater emphasis on the cream -- but found the cookies equal in sweetness, with similar mouth-feel to the filling. "I think you could pass both of them off as the same," said Klc.
Another article, this one also from the Post looks at whether some cookies and crackers really contain "whole grains" as their packaging would suggest.
