A new study finds that Oreo cookies are as addictive as cocaine.

The report out of Connecticut College found eating Oreo cookies activated more neurons in the brain's pleasure center than exposure to cocaine or morphine.

It also found that rats go after the creamy center first -- just like most people do.

The research will be presented next month at the Society for Neuroscience Conference in San Diego.
