The nutritional content of a fried Oreo

OK, our intrepid food editor and Reality Check blogger Sarah KK (she also delivers the mail) has come up with the nutrition, maybe I ought to put that in quotation marks, content for one fried Oreo. We also had a very interesting conversation about what a serving is.
