                      Is 36D36DPart of a sleeve[---]'s clue an appropriate clue for 45D45DSnack found in choreographies?[----] as well? Or is has the new packaging for Oreos ("new"... changed like a decade ago?) erased the memory of cookies coming in sleeves? Part of a sleeve could still be "THIN MINT" these days, I suppose.
