Happy Birthday Oreo!
Today marks the 100th Birthday of the Oreo. Originally the Oreo was called the Oreo Biscuit, and has had several name variations since, including the Oreo Sandwich, the Oreo Cream Sandwich and in 1974, the Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookie.
Different varieties of Oreo's have been manufactured like the Strawberry Milkshake Oreo, and the Double Stuff Oreo with Peanut buttery cream filling, and with a limited-edition release, the Birthday Cake Oreo launched last month just in time to celebrate this huge milestone.
Over 362 billion (that's BILLION with a 'B') cookies have been sold since 1912, making Oreo's the best selling cookie of the 20th century.
