In 1912, the iconic Oreo cookie was first introduced by the National Biscuit Company (Nabisco). The cookie was initially called the Oreo Biscuit, and its design was inspired by the Hydrox, a similar cookie that was already available in the market. The original Oreo had a lard-based filling and featured a wreath-like design on the outer cookies.
In 1948, the Oreo cookie was transformed into the sandwich cookie we know today. Nabisco introduced a new design featuring a creamy white filling between two chocolate-flavored wafers. The new sandwich concept quickly gained popularity, and the Oreo became a household name.
In 1974, Nabisco introduced a new variation called Double Stuf Oreos. These cookies had double the amount of filling compared to the original version, making them even more indulgent. Double Stuf Oreos became a huge hit among Oreo lovers, adding to the brand's growing legacy.
In 1987, the Oreo cookie achieved a remarkable milestone by becoming the best-selling cookie in the United States. Its popularity continued to soar, and it has remained at the top ever since. Oreo's delightful combination of chocolate cookies and a delectable cream filling continues to captivate taste buds around the country.
By 1998, Oreo had expanded its range with various creative flavors and limited editions, including mint, peanut butter, and birthday cake. The brand also spread its influence beyond American borders and gained international popularity. Oreo became a beloved treat worldwide, with different countries putting their own spin on the classic cookie.
