The Oreo Turns 100!

This week the Oreo cookie celebrates its 100th birthday. And one thing for sure, it still looks (and tastes) fantastic. Sure, it may not be good for you but it’s still an irresistible treat.

The Oreo Cookie has been a family favorite for generations and for good reason, it’s been around for eons! It was first made in 1912 in the Chelsea district of New York City by the National Biscuit Company aka Nabisco. The chocolate cream cookie sandwich is one of the most successful treats ever made, with over 491 billion, yes billion, cookies being sold. And one big component of their high sales? Their marketing.

Oreos were marketed via there ads to girls, boys, moms, dads and even grandparents. Their advertising ploys included selling the Oreo as “dessert,” as a creation with a homemade tinge, and oddly as something that had some kind of healthy aspect to it (“Let them have another one, Mother, their pure Nabisco cookies.”)

Check out this collection of ads from the decades gone by to today. Which one is your favorite? And does looking at all these ads make you want to celebrate Oreos’ birthday by biting into one? nggallery id=’123990′
