There’s manna from heaven, and then there’s the case of 14 tons of Oreo cookies spilled onto an Illinois highway when the driver of the truck fell asleep and slammed into the median, 50 miles southwest of Chicago.

According to an Associated Press article, the cookies were “still in their plastic sleeves.”

Both lanes of traffic were closed while authorities removed the sweets (bulldozer? Backhoe? Eager elementary school kids?). Did we mention they were Double Stuf? That’d make for a lotta licking.
