CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ 100th Birthday Limited Edition Oreo Cookie Review & Giveaway

 

 

When some­one men­tions Oreo Cook­ies, I am in. Being an Oreo addict from way back, I choose Oreo Cook­ies first before any other brand of cookie.

Oreo is a trade­mark for a pop­u­lar cookie sand­wich by the Nabisco Divi­sion of Kraft Foods. The cur­rent design con­sists of a sweet, white fill­ing com­monly referred to as ‘cream’, sand­wiched between two cir­cu­lar choco­late or golden cookie pieces. And to com­plete my favorite oreo cookie is a huge glass of cold milk. Over 491 bil­lion Oreo cook­ies have been sold since they were first intro­duced, mak­ing them the best sell­ing cookie of the 20th century.

 

 

 

Oreo in Greek means “Beau­ti­ful”, and that is what I see when I plop down a mound of Oreo’s to enjoy! Mmm­mmm ~ absolute goodness!!

How do you eat your Oreo? Per­son­ally, I eat them whole, bite after lus­cious bite.

While doing a lit­tle research on how oth­ers eat their Oreo’s, I came across a web­site called www.myfoodmaps.com and here is what they had to say:

 

Oreos:  An Inter­ac­tive Food

“One of the keys to Oreo’s suc­cess is its inter­ac­tiv­ity.  Think about it – you don’t just eat it — you can dunk it, bite it, or twist it apart.  Oreo lovers, psy­chol­o­gists, and food writ­ers have all spec­u­lated about whether the way some­one eats their Oreo indi­cates a per­son­al­ity type.

Accord­ing to a History.com video, in 2004, Kraft (Nabisco is now a Kraft brand), sur­veyed over 2000 Oreo eaters and found that they are divided into three cat­e­gories:
 •Dunkers tend to be ener­getic, adven­tur­ous, and extremely social. 87% of dunkers say milk is their liq­uid of choice for dunk­ing.
 •Twisters — and who hasn’t twisted an Oreo – (I per­son­ally think it makes the Oreo last longer ‘cause you get two cook­ies) – tend to be emo­tional, sen­si­tive, artis­tic, and trendy.
 •Biters are easy going, self-confident, and optimistic.

The sur­vey also dis­cov­ered that more women tend to be dunkers while men tend to be biters.  And, Democ­rats tend to twist, Repub­li­cans tend to dunk!”

 

 

 

 

Happy Birth­day Oreo!

 

An Icon for All Ages:

Oreo Cookie Cel­e­brates its 100th Birthday!!

 

It’s time to raise your glass of milk because the world’s favourite cookie is turn­ing 100!  That’s right!  Oreo – the cookie made famous for its “twist, lick and dunk” – marks its 100th birth­day on March 6th, 2012.

 

·               100 years ago, Oreo was cre­ated in a bak­ery in Chelsea, New York. This same year, Canada’s pop­u­la­tion was around 7.2 mil­lion peo­ple; the Cal­gary Stam­pede wel­comed its first cow­boys; and the Grey Cup was established.

 

·               Oreo cook­ies were orig­i­nally sold in bulk for 30 cents a pound.

 

·               Now avail­able in 100 coun­tries, more than $1.5 bil­lion of Oreo cook­ies are sold every year.  Canada is the fourth biggest Oreo mar­ket in the world, fol­low­ing the United States, China, and Venezuela.

 

·               Today, the Cana­dian Oreo bak­ery on Viau Street in Mon­treal bakes more than 1.1 mil­lion Oreo cook­ies in an eight hour shift.

 

·               There are more than 23 mil­lion Oreo Face­book fans in 183 coun­tries, includ­ing 40 in Vat­i­can City and 850,000 in Canada.

 

·               Twist, Lick and Dunk is a part of our psy­che with 50 per cent of all Oreo eaters pulling apart their cook­ies before eat­ing.  Women twist them open more often than men.

 

 

The Oreo 100th Birth­day cel­e­bra­tion is tak­ing place in more than 20 coun­tries around the world, includ­ing Canada.  And all Cana­di­ans can bring the cel­e­bra­tion home with a spe­cial, limited-edition Birth­day Cake Oreo cookie, avail­able at the end of February.

 

Make sure go to Oreo100.ca and see this awe­some 100th Birth­day story! Also, Visit Oreo on Face­book to help cel­e­brate 100 years of Oreo by upload­ing your favourite, fun-filled Oreo moments.
