It is National Oreo Cookie Day!!!!

What a fun and tasty day to celebrate!!! My grandson Caleb is absolutely a "fan" of Oreo cookies . . . after all, they are quite the tasty treat! Since today is National Oreo Cookie Day, I thought it would be fun to share a few, "Oreo facts" with you . . . 
  • The Oreo Cookie is the best selling cookie in the USA
  • The first Oreo Cookie was made in 1912 at the National Biscuit Company (Nabisco) factory in New York City - the same year the South Pole was discovered, and the Titanic sank. 
  • The first Oreo Cookies sold in the USA for 25 cents a pound
  • You will find Oreos in more than 100 countries around the world!
  • In other countries, Oreos come in a variety of flavors unfamiliar to American cookie lovers. In China, for example, you can get green tea ice cream Oreos. In Argentina, you can get dulche de leche and banana Oreos.
  • It takes 59 minutes to make an Oreo.
  • The way that you eat an Oreo says something about your personality: Dunkers tend to be adventurous and social; twisters are sensitive, artistic and trendy; and biters are easy-going and self-confident, according to eatoutwell.com.
  • To make an annual batch of Oreos one needs 18 million pounds of cocoa and 47 million pounds of cream filling. 
Oreo has some really fun short videos out - I'm putting two of my favorites in this post for you to enjoy!

For some additional Oreo, "fun", if you go to this link, you can download the Oreo "Wonder" song for free!

So, what way do you eat an Oreo? I am a "biter" . . . which must mean I am easy-going and self-confident! Enjoy!

    When my oldest son was a year old (he's now 44) my dad taught him how to take the oreos apart and lick the filling first. A great memory since my dad passed away a short time after that.
