For anyone who didn't read the actual source text:
 

“This correlated well with our behavioral results and lends support to the hypothesis that high-fat/ high-sugar foods are addictive,” said Schroeder.
And that is a problem for the general public, says Honohan.
“Even though we associate significant health hazards in taking drugs like cocaine and morphine, high-fat/ high-sugar foods may present even more of a danger because of their accessibility and affordability,” she said.

It's not so much Oreos as high fat/high sugar foods in general.

I never snorted oreos so I couldn't compare the two to provide info on whether it's as addictive.
