Oreo is making the final stop on their nationwide tour, taking over the Santa Monica Pier with a gigantic, five-lane slide measuring nearly 3-stories high. As part of the brand’s What’s Your Stuf? campaign, Oreo is making the Santa Monica pier even more playful and asking its fans to answer the burning question: What is the perfect Oreo cookie-to-creme ratio?  L.A. cookie-lovers will vote for their ideal level of filling in the most playful way, by sliding down one of the five lanes: Oreo Thins, Oreo Original, Oreo Double Stuf, Oreo Mega Stuf, or the Oreo Most Stuf. An on-site leaderboard will tally results in real-time and everyone who stops by will receive a sample of their OREO cookie of choice.
