Oreo accused of 'hiding' competitor's cookies

Hydrox claims Oreo is taking the best spots on store shelves

Hydrox, the company that makes cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies similar to the popular Oreo, has filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission accusing the cookie brand of taking up prime real estate. 

Hydrox claims their products were hidden on store shelves, so as not to stand out as competition with Oreo. 

Mondolez International, the food company that makes Oreo under the Nabisco division, said the claims are false and that they do not have any control over merchandising location.
