On National Oreo Cookie Day (March 6) we celebrate America’s number one cookie. 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 bestselling cookie in America ever since. We love to dunk them, twist them, and straight up take a bite. Here’s to the delicious Oreo.
Why We Love Oreo Cookies (and National Oreo Cookie Day)
A. There is only one Oreo
There are a lot of imitators, but there is only one Oreo. Every now and then we will try out other brands to see if they’ll taste as good, but we keep coming back to the original. They got things perfectly right, and we commend them for it.
B. We love them every which way
There are a million ways to eat an Oreo, and we love all them. Twisting, dunking, chomping, sharing — each way is amazing. How someone eats an Oreo is also such an insight into their personality! How do you eat your Oreo?
C. We love to try all the varieties
There are dozens of varieties of Oreos, some only available in certain counties, and we love the challenge of trying to taste all of them.
