It is with great joy that I share some news with you today. We are celebrating the auspicious occasion of the 100th birthday of the Oreo cookie. Ah, the joys of the Oreo! In America, it is a childhood staple, nay, a deep-seeded tradition. I know it is an international sensation now as well.
We all know very well the ritual associated with the eating of it. First, you must twist the two chocolate layers apart. Second you eat the delicious vanilla cream filling in the middle. Lastly, is the dunking ritual with a big glass of milk. Just the thought of this makes me smile and remember good childhood moments – including sneaking a few extras from the cookie jar when Mom wasn’t looking. Yes, sorry to say, I had thievery in my heart as a child. Luckily cookie theft is not punishable by law.
To those who know and love the Oreo – today is the perfect day to abandon your diets and get a treat. And now there are so many options to tickle your fancy, from: classic, double stuff, mint, chocolate, and the list goes on. There’s even Oreo cake snacks and ice cream treats. Yum!!!
