NATIONAL OREO COOKIE DAY
Be ready to observe by having your glass of milk handy as it is National Oreo Cookie Day. This day is recognized across the nation each year on March 6th.
The Oreo sandwich cookie is made up of two chocolate disks containing a sweet cream filling and is loved by millions. Since the introduction, the Oreo cookie has become the best-selling cookie in the United States.
The National Biscuit Company (today known as Nabisco) first developed and produced the “Oreo Biscuit” in 1912 at its Chelsea factory in New York City. Today, the block on which the factory was located is known as “Oreo Way”.
The name “Oreo” was first trademarked on March 14, 1912.
The first Oreo cookies in the United States sold for 25 cents a pound in clear glass topped novelty cans.
In 1912, the Oreo Biscuit was renamed to “Oreo Sandwich”.
In 1948, the Oreo Sandwich was renamed to “Oreo Creme Sandwich”.
William A. Turnier developed the modern-day Oreo design in 1952 to include the Nabisco logo.
Nabisco’s principal food scientist, Sam Porcello, developed the modern Oreo cookie filling.
HOW TO OBSERVE:
Grab a glass of milk and a handful of Oreos to enjoy and use #NationalOreoCookieDay to post on social media.
1. Are you able to pass by a plate of cookies and not take one or are you a bit of a ‘Cookie Monster’?
Oh my, I am an oreo cookie monster, for sure! In fact, here is a true story.
My sister is 5 1/2 years older than me. She babysat and had money of her own and would buy herself a package of Oreo’s and keep them hidden in her dresser. Well, there is not much you can keep hidden from a little sister!
The Cookie Monster age 7!
I discovered them, and I’m afraid my little girl mind just can’t have one, and this caused me to raid them too much! I was discovered and I do not even recall what happened to me back then, but my punishment has been incredible teasing over the years!
2. Tell us about your favorite cookie. Have your tastes changed since you were a kid?
My favorite cookie is the Snickerdoodle. It’s a sugar cookie rolled in cinnamon sugar and baked. OMG! The best cookie ever!
3. Enquiring minds want to know if you are a dunker and, if so, do you dunk in milk, coffee, or tea?
I am not a dunker! Why ruin a perfect cookie!
4. It is that time of year and they are selling them on every corner and in front of every store! Do you buy Girl Scout cookies and if you do, which is your favorite?
I used to buy Thin Mints. But I stopped. It’s just like the Oreo’s and a serving size to me is an entire sleeve!
5. Raw cookie dough. Yay or Nay?
Not really. I so enjoy the cooked cookie!
6. Please tell us something random about your week!!
Funny this is all about cookies. I was thinking about making oatmeal cookies. I still might. Tomorrow is Quinn’s third birthday and Saturday is his party. I must get wrapping paper for his present and a little card. Maybe I will make a card for him. There’s an idea!

Oh what a stinker you were… lol The hubs has requested some choc chip cookies… I may have to whip up a batch for him. Have a great Wednesday!
Happy birthday to your Quinn!! I like snicker doodles too! Good stuff!! Oatmeal cookies are good too, but please leave out the raisins. Have a great day and thanks for joining the Medley today!
Happy Birthday to Quinn! I love snickerdoodles, too and used to make them often. The Oreo Cookie Monster. Funny. I used to hide chocolate candy in my dresser drawers. And you will like this. I also bought brownies all the time when first married. I hid them because my husband got upset at my over indulgence in chocolate. When he came home one night, my little dachshund Max kept going over to where I had hidden the brownies. Bob finally said, what’s going on with Max? He went over, lifted the cover and I was busted!
Oh yes! I love Snickerdoodles too! I also do not dunk my cookies.
I enjoyed your story about stealing your sisters cookies…too funny! I do not blame you! I am a cookie monster too.
Don’t you just love Victoria?? Such a good show! Loved your answers! Have a nice day!
