What is the history of Oreo?

Oreo was first sold in 1912 and has been America’s most popular biscuit ever since.* It was developed and produced by Nabisco and originally came in two flavours; lemon meringue and cream. There are various theories about how the name Oreo came about, but the truth is, no one really knows. Oreo is now the world’s favourite biscuit.* Rumour has it that over 7.5 billion are eaten every year or 20.5 million a day… phew. That’s a lot of biscuits!

I can’t twist my Oreo. What am I doing wrong?

There certainly is an art to it! If you grip the biscuit too hard, they will break due to the soft, crumbly texture. In our experience the best approach is to hold the biscuit at the top and bottom as if opening a screw top jar. Oreo has a lovely creamy filling and if the biscuit is too cold (below -18ºC, certainly not helped by our weather!) the cream becomes much firmer, making the twisting process more difficult. When the biscuit is warmer you will find the process easier. Mmm… hot Oreo! 

Can I buy Oreo online?

Sorry, we don’t sell Oreo directly online. But you can definitely buy Oreo through retailers. Try supermarkets that have online shopping. You will find a list on the Range page.
