Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Oreo Cookie Day 

March 6th is National Oreo Day, and that means that it’s time to celebrate “milk’s favorite cookie.

Oreo sandwich cookies, originally called Oreo Biscuits, were first introduced by the National Biscuit Co. (a.k.a. Nabisco) on March 6th 1912.

When you think of classic Oreo cookies, you think of chocolate cookies with vanilla cream, right? Did you know that when Oreo cookies first made their debut, there was another flavor as well?

That’s right, when the cookies hit the market in 1912, there was also a lemon meringue flavor! Unfortunately, it wasn’t very popular, so only the original chocolate cookie stayed.

  • Did you know? Oreos, invented in 1912, were invented before the chocolate chip cookie, which was first made by Ruth Wakefield in 1937
  • Did you know? Oreo has a team of six people who invent limited-edition flavours which is so secretive that even the name of the team is not revealed to the public.
