A Bite To Mouth Watering Oreo Cookie


Oreo is an American sandwich cookie with two chocolate wafers with a delicious crème filling which was launched on March 6, 1912. In the United States oreo is the best-selling cookie brand. As of 2018, the version sold in the U.S. Developed by Nabisco's Mondloz International division.


In 1898, several baking companies merged to form the National Biscuit Company, also known as Nabisco. This was the beginning of a company that would build an Oreo cookie. In 1902, Nabisco released Barnum's Animal Crackers for the first time, making them famous by selling them in a small box in a circus animal-shaped cage attached to string so that the it could be hung on Christmas trees.

In 1912, Nabisco had the idea of ​​a new cookie, albeit not a real one - two chocolate discs with a cream that was filled in the middle and made by Sunshine Biscuits in 1908, which called the cookie Hydrox. While Nabisco never invented Hydrox as its inspiration, the Oreo cookie named four years after the world was introduced to Hydrox was exactly the same as the previous biscuit: two decorated chocolate discs with white cream made between them.

Despite its suspicious appearance, Oreo made a name for itself and quickly surpassed it rival's popularity. Nabisco made sure to mark the new cookie shortly after its creation on March 14, 1912. The application was filed on August 12, 1913.


Oreo cookies are available in over 100 countries. Many types of Oreo cookies have been developed, and run limited-edition has become very popular in the 21st century. Oreo cookies were introduced to the Indian market by Cadbury India in 2011. India's biscuit industry is estimated to cost about $ 1.8 billion.

The Unique Name

The origin of the word "Oreo" is unknown, but there are many considerations, including those derived from the French word "or" meaning 'gold'. Some think that the word is a combination of taking "re" from "cream" and sandwiches, like a cookie, between "o" and "chocolate" which is "making" re-o. "

Some believe that the cookie was named Oreo simply because the name was short and easy to pronounce. Another theory, suggested by food writer Stella Parks, is that the name is derived from Latin Oreo-daphne, a type of laurel family. We can see that the original Oreo design incorporates laurel decoration; and several Nabisco cookie names during the original Oreo were taken from plants, including Avena, Lotus and Helicon (Heliconia).


Most Oreo products were made at Hershey's factory in Hershey, Pennsylvania. In 2017, more than 40 billion Oreo cookies were produced annually in 18 different countries around the world. Oreo cookies in Asian markets are produced in India, Indonesia and China, outside of the Japanese market where they are produced under the "Yamazaki-Nabisco" brand.

Oreo Shut-Down

In 2015, Mondelēz announced its decision to shut down some American factories and move the product to Mexico, which led to Oreo's strike. In 2016, after production began in Mexico, the AFL-CIO promoted a boycott and published a consumer guide to help identify which products of Mondelēz were made in Mexico. In July 2016, Oreo cookies ended production in Chicago.
