Logging Oreo cream (No Cookie)?

You know the scene:
Empty Oreo package
Chocolate Oreo wafers strewn about the room, robbed of their inner creamy goodness
You, on the couch or lying face-down on the floor, face full of regret and stomach full of cream

So my question is, how do I log it? I'm not able to find the selection on the search function.

    Weigh the un-eaten portion, log it, and hope for the best.

    this totally just made my day - YES I UNDERSTAND.
    Normally when I do something like that I make up a food that's name matches my shame level and give it 9999 for calories.

    "deliciously evil face plant into the Oreo bag" - 1 serving, 9999 calories

    If you want to get complicated about it, you could:

    look at the nutritional info for Oreo
    divide the serving info so that you have the nutrition and calories for one cookie
    look at the nutritional info for Oreo Double Stuf
    divide the serving info so that you have the nutrition and calories for one cookie
    subtract the Oreo nutritional info from the Double Stuf info

    and that should give you close to the nutritional info for the filling from a single Oreo.

    However, the much easier way to go (posted above) is to weigh the leftover cookies and subtract that weight to get the weight of the filling you ate and then just use the Oreo entry with the weight of the filling. IMO, that would be much easier and close enough.

    I would never EVER regret eating just the filling.

    I've used the Oreo - Filling entry for 20 calories but not sure how right that is.

    I was going to say the same, use the difference between the double stuffed and regular Oreo to get an approximation of the nutrition info for just the cream.

    I wouldn't use the weight method because the calorie/weight difference between the cookie part and cream part is quite significant.

    I would log it as such:

    Oreo - 1 cookie (1 serving)
    Oreo - Cookie only no cream (-1 serving)

    Obviously I wouldn't be able to weigh with this method, but it appears that oreo cream from one cookie is equal to ~23 calories.

    I wish my math teachers used Oreos as examples. I would be a math genius right now!

    Weigh it and log it as high fructose corn syrup.

    I dont understand how you eat the filling and not eat the Oreo. Hence the reason I stopped buying oreos years ago.

    I googled it and found this: http://www.livestrong.com/article/328383-nutritional-information-for-oreo-cookies-without-the-cream/

    I'm one of those that eats the middles out of the Double Stufs. Haven't done it for a really long time because I can't just eat 2 or 3. Now I want Oreos.
