Oreo Cookie Celebrates its 100th Birthday!
Cookies ‘n Cream Ice Cream! Oreo Blizzards! Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches! Oh the Oreo. It’s been one of my favourite cookies to have in an ice cream since I was a kid and I can’t believe it’s turning 100. Luckily I’m not, but when/if I turn 100 I hope I have a good pair of dentures to still eat them.
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.
My cousin used to actually work at the Kraft Foods head quarters and bring back tons of Oreos for me. Hmmm maybe I shouldn’t be saying that, but I’m pretty sure it was part of the perks!
Anyways the Oreo cookie is a cookie that’s near impossible to replicate at home. Usually I would encourage baking cookies at home because they’re so easy to make, but in this case I’ve actually tried re-making the Oreo and they were still good, but just not the same. So “let’s raise our glasses of milk” to the cookie that’s famous for the “twist, lick, and dunk”.
Follow Me Foodie Twists: Keep them in the freezer. They stay nice and crisp! Sometimes I take out some of the icing and replace it with peanut butter and refreeze them. Nutella works as well… mixed with a sprinkle of espresso. I would actually take these Birthday Cake Oreos and mix pound cake into the icing part too.
