We celebrate America’s number one cookie each year on its very special day on March 6 with National Oreo Cookie Day. At National Today, we love a good cookie. And good cookies stem from the classics. In fact, one of our absolute favorites is a timeless classic: the Oreo. With crisp chocolate cookies and creamy filling, these little cookies have captured our hearts and our stomachs. The Oreo was first introduced in 1912 and it has been the best-selling cookie in America ever since. We love to dunk them, twist them, and straight up take a bite. Here’s to the delicious Oreo!
History of National Oreo Cookie Day
Invented in 1912, the late Sam J. Porcello, a former Nabisco food scientist, the Oreo cookie has been a creamy favorite snack for decades. This cookie creation is without a doubt one of his most notable achievements in his 34 years at Nabisco. And frankly, we believe that life has been sweeter ever since, since we at National Today just cannot get enough! The Oreo cookie is nearly 108 years old, and is enjoyed by cookie lovers of all ages across the globe.
Let’s face it: classic never goes out of style. And, at over 100 years old Oreo cookies are available in various colors, sizes, flavors. There are more inventing flavors coming every year. There are double stuffed, thins, mini, Neapolitan, and the aptly named Mega Stuf. We can even savor the flavor in an Oreo cake! Dunk them in milk, have them after a meal or a snack, share them with friends or covet them for yourself. However we want them, we can have them, as there is no shortage of ways to enjoy the beloved Oreo!
