Ask any child about their favorite biscuit and a majority of them would blurt out a variant from the cream stuffed section. Well, who can blame them? They are just so addictive!

Oreo is an older brand that is recognised from far off, thanks to its iconic blue packaging. It is packed without a tray, but none of the biscuits we received were broken. 

Parle, even though it is an old brand, launched Fabio in early 2020 with a packaging very similar to Oreo. The biscuits are packed in a plastic tray and none of the biscuits were broken.

The biscuits of Fabio and Oreo are both crunchy and there isn’t a major difference. However, after multiple tastings we felt that Fabio has a marginally higher crunch. Neither contender had dry, brittle or crumbly textures. Due to the small difference in the crunch of the biscuit, Parle’s Fabio had an upperhand in this parameter.
