Oh-oh Oreo – Happy Birthday … Oreo Cookie Turns 100 Years Old



Today the Oreo cookie turns 100 years old. Talk about withstanding the test of time. The first Oreo cookie,  called the Oreo biscuit, was sold in Hoboken, New Jersey in 1912. The Oreo is the top selling cookie of the 21st Century. Admit it, you twist them open and eat the cream filling before you eat the cookie.

The Oreo Cookie has proved it can withstand the test of time.

The chocolate cookie with cream in the middle has been around since 1912.

Today, Kraft Foods is celebrating the Oreo’s 100th birthday in grand fashion—hosting more than 100 “birthday parties” across a dozen countries, plus games on their website, and you can even buy a package of limited edition “Birthday Cake Oreos” to celebrate the occasion. For $4 on the company’s website, you can also send a friend a coupon for a free package of Oreos.

Check out the nostalgic ads of Oreo over the years at the Daily Mail.
