Whether you twist them, split them, snap them or just chomp on in, it's a slam dunk for lovers of the iconic Oreo cookie. The first one was sold to a Hoboken, New Jersey, grocer 100 years ago today.
While the traditional chocolate wafer and single filling layer reigns supreme with consumers, to the tune of more than $2 billion in global annual revenues, Nabisco began offering variations such as the "Double Stuf" (with twice the standard amount of icing) in 1975, and the 100-calorie-per-cookie "Triple Double" (three wafers, and a layer each of standard and chocolate icing) in 2011.
Due to public health concerns, Nabisco phased out lard from the original filling recipe in favor of trans-fats, which themselves came under fire in 2003. As of 2006, all classic-format cookies have been made with non-hydrogenated vegetable oil.
The cookies are sold in over 100 countries around the world, offering regional twists such as a green tea flavor in Japan, a "Duo" featuring strawberry and standard filling in Argentina, and a vanilla cream edition in China, among others.
Nabisco has released a sprinkle-filled 100th anniversary Birthday Cake limited edition throughout the United States and is celebrating with a dedicated website and fan festivities around the world.
We suggest a "S'moreo"
I eat them with a fork like this.
i put them in a bag, mash them up then put them in a bowl of milk, i like to be creative with my food
Must have a cup of milk. End of story.
Nutter Bitter Peanut Butter cookies are better tasting and go with milk better than Oreos'.
Oreo's are a classic, and less people have allergies to Oreos. BOO Nutter Butters
I am having flashbacks of the Oreo O's cereal from the 90's- OMG. Then one time when I was at college, my aunt brought me a package of oreos. I ate a whole row, realized this was not a good idea, and put a "free cookies" sign on them- in an all girls dorm, vanished within an hour.
