Wednesday Medley ~ Oreos ~ 3/6/19

Come join Terri @ Your Friend From Florida every Wednesday.



Be ready to observe by having your glass of milk handy as it is National Oreo Cookie Day.  This day is recognized across the nation each year on March 6th.
The Oreo sandwich cookie is made up of two chocolate disks containing a sweet cream filling and is loved by millions.  Since it’s introduction, the Oreo cookie has become the best-selling cookie in the United States.
The National Biscuit Company (today known as Nabisco) first developed and produced the “Oreo Biscuit” in 1912 at its Chelsea factory in New York City. Today, the block on which the factory was located is known as “Oreo Way”.
  • The name “Oreo” was first trademarked on March 14, 1912.
  • The first Oreo cookies in the United States sold for 25 cents a pound in clear glass topped novelty cans.
  • In 1912, the Oreo Biscuit was renamed to “Oreo Sandwich”.
  • In 1948, the Oreo Sandwich was renamed to “Oreo Creme Sandwich”.
  • William A. Turnier developed the modern-day Oreo design in 1952 to include the Nabisco logo.
  • Nabisco’s principal food scientist, Sam Porcello, developed the modern Oreo cookie filling.
Grab a glass of milk and a handful of Oreos to enjoy and use #NationalOreoCookieDay to post on social media.
1.  Are you able to pass by a plate of cookies and not take one or are you a bit of a 'Cookie Monster'?
"Cookie Monster"!  lol
2.  Tell us about your favorite cookie. Have your tastes changed since you were a kid?
Bought:  Oreos;  Homemade:  Chocolate Chip.  My taste in cookies has remained the same :)
3.  Enquiring minds want to know if you are a dunker and, if so, do you dunk in milk, coffee, or tea?
Yes, I'm a dunker :)  The cookie lends itself to what I dunk in.  Milk for Oreos; Tea for Chocolate Chip.
4.  It is that time of year and they are selling them on every corner and in front of every store!  Do you buy Girl Scout cookies and if you do, which is your favorite?
They've gotten so expensive!  I usually refrain but I absolutely LOVE the Tagalongs and Shortbread.
5.  Raw cookie dough.  Yay or Nay?
Well...Yay, of course!
6.  Please tell us something random about your week!!
Gotta go!  The Oreos are calling my name from the snack bin!
