On this day in 1912, the Oreo Cookie was born. It’s hard to imagine that before that, children and adults alike never had the pleasure of dunking an Oreo into a glass of cold milk, or pulling one apart and eating the creme filling first. It’s no wonder that, 100 years later, Oreo cookies are still going strong as one of the most popular types of cookie.
The first Oreo cookie looked pretty similar to what you’re used to seeing today, but the cookie manufacturer has experimented with different shapes and flavors throughout the years. In addition to Double Stuf and Mini sized Oreos, you can also get a promotional Oreo (chocolate covered!) displaying your logo.
While the traditional chocolate cookie with white creme has always been readily available, Oreo has debuted different flavors too including golden Oreos, Cool Mint Oreos, Peanut Butter Oreos and Oreo Cakesters. For a limited time, Oreo is promoting it’s Centenarian status by selling Birthday Cake Oreos, with a special birthday cake flavored creme. Happy Birthday Oreo!
