Hydrox®, the nation's first chocolate sandwich cookie, knows his run is unconventional, but he intends it to be another shot in the arm in this remarkable season of American politics. As Hydrox says, "With all the nuts running for president, why not a cookie?" Using the Internet to crowdfund a campaign to win the White House gives voters a clear way to express how they feel about politics as usual at the ballot box in 2016. One of his core values is that voters deserve a clear way to express how they feel about nutritional politics. "We can't change a rigged system unless we demand real sugar, darker chocolate, crunchier cookies, a filling that isn't too sweet, and a product free of trans-fats!" Hydrox® declared, "I've always been made in America and I promise never to leave! The wall I'm going to build is a wall of cookies and all college students will get them free." Capitalizing on the weakness of his opponent, Señor Oreo® (the knockoff cookie), whose position supports shifting production to Mexico to boost company profits, Hydrox® has found a coalition of strong support among conscientious consumers.  According to campaign staffers for Hydrox, all official paperwork has been submitted to the US government and the campaign kicks-off March 2nd.

Hydrox® has been made in the USA for over 100 years and is committed to creating American jobs. That coupled with the high quality ingredients used make Hydrox® a formidable candidate. "We are a better cookie for a better America!" exclaimed Ellia Kassoff, senior member of the Hydrox Campaign. "Being chosen to represent The National Cookie Party™ is only the first step. With YOUR support we will succeed in making Hydrox® great again."

About Hydrox®: Hydrox® is the original crème-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 will be exactly the way you remember it, circa 1908 to 1999. It will taste like the original Hydrox® you remember; with a darker richer coco, less sweet filling and those amazing crispier cookies!
