Every year on March 6, we commemorate America’s favourite cookie with National Oreo Cookie Day. We at National Today adore a nice cookie. And delicious cookies are derived from the classics. In fact, one of our all-time faves: the Oreo. These small treats have grabbed both our hearts and our tummies with their crisp chocolate biscuits and creamy filling. The Oreo was initially created in 1912, and it has remained America’s best-selling cookie ever since. We like to dip them, twist them, and eat them straight up. Here’s to the scrumptious Oreo!
NATIONAL OREO COOKIE DAY’S HISTORY
Former Nabisco food scientist Sam J. Porcello is most renowned for his creation on the current Oreo cookie, which has been a creamy favourite snack for decades. This cookie innovation is without a doubt one of his most remarkable accomplishments throughout his 34-year tenure at Nabisco. And, to be honest, we feel that life has been sweeter ever since, since we at National Today can’t get enough! The Oreo cookie has been around for about 108 years and is adored by cookie lovers of all ages all around the world.
Let’s face it: classic never goes out of fashion. And, despite being over a century old, Oreo cookies are available in a variety of colours, sizes, and tastes. Every year, new tastes are being developed. There are double filled, thins, small, Neapolitan, and Mega Stuff options. We can even taste it in an Oreo dessert! You may dunk them in milk, eat them as a snack or after a meal, share them with friends, or keep them all to yourself. We may have them anyway we want them since there is no shortage of ways to savour the beloved Oreo!
