National Oreo Cookie Day


Oreo cookies are one of my favorite kinds of cookies.  Did you know Oreo has its own special day on March 6th to celebrate its delicious popularity?  An Oreo is actually called a sandwich cookie, made up of two chocolate disks containing a sweet cream filling.

Let me tell you some quick facts about this famous cookie!

  • The name "Oreo" was first trademarked on March 14, 1912, by The National Biscuit Company (known today as Nabisco).
  • Its original name was "Oreo Biscuit" and was later changed to "Oreo Sandwich."
  • The first Oreo cookies were sold for 25 cents a pound in clear glass topped novelty cans.
  • Today's logo design was developed in 1952 by William A. Turnier.
How should I observe this day you ask?  My suggestion is by eating an Oreo!  The Oreo website has tons of recipes that uses the cookie as one of its main ingredients.  Or you can check out one of our recipe books and make a batch of your favorite cookies.  There are plenty of good picture books about cookies to read as you munch on your scrumptious creation!  Don't forget a cold glass of milk to wash it down!
