Many of us have had discussions on how best oreos are eaten. From Oreo Cakes. Milkshakes, Dipped in peanut butter, and additional desserts. At some festivals you can even try deep-fried Oreos. Oreos were introduced in 1898 and has become the best selling cookies in the United States. Many baking companies merged to form the National Biscuit Company (Nabisco) created by Barnum's Animal cookies and made them famous by selling them in a little box designed like a cage with a string attached to hang on Christmas trees. In 1912, Nabisco had a genius idea for a brand new cookie looking very similar to what is it now, minus a slight difference in the design in the chocolate disks. The current design however has been around since 1952. Later that year Nabisco released Double stuff Oreos. in 1987 chocolate Fudge Oreos were introduced. So where exactly did the name "Oreo" come from? The Nabisco company isn't quite sure.
No matter how it got named, over 362 billion Oreo cookies have been sold since it was first introduced in 1912, making it the best selling cookie of the Century.
