National Oreo Cookie Day
National Oreo Cookie Day is observed next on Wednesday, March 6th, 2024 (14 days from today).
Oreo sandwiches are available in more than 100 countries worldwide. This favorite cookie is made by Nabisco, a division of Mondelez International. While most consumers know Oreo sandwich cookies as two round chocolate chip cookies with a vanilla icing in between, variations of the product can be seen in other countries. This shows that Oreo adapts to the different tastes and preferences of local markets around the world. The first Oreo went on sale on March 6, 1912 in Hoboken, New Jersey, and it seems that for the sake of recognition of the most beloved oreo cookie in the US market, National Oreo Cookie Day is recognized every year on March 6.
History of Oreo Cookies
The National Biscuit Company (Nabisco) is the developer of Oreo, which they call Oreo Cookies. This product started in 1912 and was trademarked the same year. The product has undergone several name changes. In 1921 Oreo Cookies was renamed Oreo Sandwich and became Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookie in 1948. It was eventually changed to Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookie, first used in 1974.
While the product introduced new flavors to blanket it, such as lemon ice cream, the only version that was retained was topped with the original white cream. Oreo is also popular with vegans because no animal products are used to coat it. The new recipe for frosting was created by Sam Pocello, Nabisco's principal food scientist. Regarding Oreo, he has five registered patents.
Oreo was first introduced in the US in 1912. Oreo has consistently topped the list of most popular cookies, with the simple idea of sandwiching two chocolate chip cookies with ice cream in the middle. More than 450 billion Oreos (no one knows exactly) have been sold since it was first launched.
No one knows why Oreo cookies are called Oreos. You might think that one would have to come up with a fancy name to claim the excellence of this cookie. However, no one knows exactly why Oreo got its name. There is some speculation that Oreo was named after the French word "or" which means "gold" (previously Oreo's packaging was yellow), or that this is also the result of a combination of words " re" in "cream" and two "o" in "chocolate". Nor does it exclude the possibility that someone thinks: "Wow, Oreo sounds good" and decides to use this name. This is still a mystery to mankind.
There is a street named "Oreo" in America. In 1898, several confectionery companies joined hands and formed a company known as Nabisco. They opened a bakery at the intersection of 15th and 16th streets at Chelsea Market in New York, which is also where Oreo was born. Therefore, 15th Street at 9th Avenue is officially called "Oreo" street.
Before 1997, Oreo used to use lard in its cakes. After this ingredient is removed, it can technically be judged that Oreo cookies are a vegan food with fairly simple ingredients such as sugar, flour, oil, cocoa, high fructose corn syrup. , yeast, cornstarch, salt, soy lecithin, vanillin and chocolate. It says "technically vegan" because even though there are no animal ingredients on the list, the company is careful to warn about dairy ingredients in its cakes. And now Oreo's Cookie Section is vegan.
Oreo is a cookie with the golden ratio. Oreo is also perfect in terms of science. The proportions of a traditional Oreo cake are always 71% cookies and 29% cream.
Men and women have different ways of enjoying Oreo. It was found that 84% of men ate Oreos in their mouths, while 41% of women preferred to split the two pieces of cake and then...lick the ice cream. Actually, this is not surprising at all.
Lemon is the first new flavor added to Oreo. You may be surprised to know that there was a time when Oreos had such an unthinkable taste. Lemon is the first flavor added by the Oreo brand to create a new flavor. However, not long after that, this new product line was discontinued. It wasn't until the 2000s that the company began to release limited editions with flavors themed by the holidays of the year.
Oreo is the best-selling cookie in the world. Oreo cookies are the best-selling products in the world with over $2 billion in annual sales. And it was also the product that increased parent company Mondelez's net sales by 2.1%. The brand also has a wide presence on social media and consistently proves itself as a media-savvy brand.
The texture on the Oreo cake was designed by Nabisco's postman. Rumor has it that it was a postman named William Turnier who authored the embossed design on the Oreo cookie. William's son Bill Turnier still retains the original Oreo design today with his father's name on the back of the drawing. The design consists of exactly 12 flowers, 12 dots and 12 dashes. People are still trying to consult historical documents to find out why Oreo has a design similar to the coat of arms of the Knights Templar, maybe this postman is free and Just a wonderful drawing.
