The Oreo Cookie is 100 Years Old!
Tue, 03/6/12 8:46 AM
the world's most popular cookie, was introduced by Nabisco a hundred years ago today. The first batch was baked in Manhattan and sold in Hoboken. It was as it is today: two dark chocolate cookies with a fake buttercream filling holding them together. The original ornate design on the cookie was very similar to today's. The only major change over the years was to add the Nabisco colophon to the center. A few decades ago, Esquire magazine tried to discover who created the design and why. They didn't find out, but they did learn one amazing, little-discussed fact about Oreo: it is a ripoff of the long-running but now extinct Hydrox, made by Sunshine Biscuits.

So, will the person who’s never eaten an Oreo please step forward?
I thought so, No one!
And how do you eat it?
Split open and un-iced half first?
Iced half first?
Dunked in milk?
Run out and buy a package and be a kid again!
