Launched in India in March 2011 the delicious combination of dark chocolate biscuit
and vanilla cream was first introduced to the world in 1912. That original formula
was so perfect that it has hardly been modified since. Each year more than 7.5 billion
Oreo Biscuits are eaten, making it the world’s No. 1 biscuit. Paired with
a glass of milk, it is the perfect snack.
Children across the world teach their parents the fun way to eat Oreo – twisting
the biscuit open, licking the cream, and then dunking the biscuit in milk. It’s
no wonder then, that families the world over, come together over this tasty snack.
