National Oreo Cookie Day

Oreo Cookie

Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always March 6

Oreo cookies are one of America's favorite cookies. However, it doesn't stop there. Oreo cookies are one of the most popular cookies in the world. Therefore, it is only fitting that one day - -  today - - is designated as National Oreo Cookie Day. On this day, we celebrate the creation of the oreo cookie and take a few minutes to savor this event. As you continue to read about this day, we encourage you to pour a glass of milk, grab a handful of oreos, and chow down. 

For over a century, Oreos have been a favorite cookie of children around the world. The same goes for men and women. In 1912, Sam J. Porcello invented the Oreo cookie while working as a scientist at the National Biscuit Company. You've probably already guessed that this company would go on to become Nabisco Company. In 1912, it was originally called the "Oreo Biscuit". It was sold in a tin for 25 cents per pound. Over the decades, its name was progressively changed  from the "Oreo Biscuit", to "Oreo Sandwich",  to "Oreo Creme Sandwich", and finally to "Oreo Cookie". To most of us, it is simply and lovingly called "Oreo".


How to Eat Oreo Cookies:

There are several right ways to eat oreo cookies There is no wrong way. Almost all ways of eating oreos is best done with a glass of milk.

  • Pick one up and eat it.
  • Dip the cookie in milk and then eat it.
  • Take the top cookie off and eat it. Lick off the icing, then eat the bottom cookie.
  • Any combination of the above.
  • Crumble up a couple cookies and put it on ice cream.

Today's Quote: "People are like oreos, the good stuff is on the inside." - - Author Unknown

Now, if you haven't done so already, get with the spirit of this day. Pour a glass of milk. Open up that bag of Oreos. Ahhh, enjoy!


History and Origin of "National Oreo Cookie Day":

The creation and hsitory of oreo cookies is well known. However, we have not yet identified who created National Oreo Cookie Day or when. Our research tracked the origin of this day to around 2016.
March 6 was selected, as this is the date that oreo cookies were invented.

It is also obvious why this day way created.... to celebrate and enjoy delicious Oreos.

What is surprising, is the creatror chose to call this a "National" day. Given the Oreo cookie's world-wide renown, we think it has earned the right to be called a "World" or "International" day.

We found no presidential proclamation or act of Congress making this a true national day.
