Oh, happy National Oreo Cookie Day that is!

Yes, believe it or not, today is National Oreo Cookie Day. I mean, who knew that there was a special day to celebrate this yummy little cookie?

Have you ever wondered about this amazing cookie that is made up of two chocolate disks and contains a sweet cream filling? Well, here are some fun facts that will leave wanting to celebrate National Oreo Cookie Day every year when March 6th rolls around.

  • The Oreo cookie was first produced in 1912.
    • That’s 105 years ago!
  • The National Biscuit Company, Nabisco, is the company that makes the BEST-SELLING cookie in the United States.
    • Move over chocolate chip cookies. The Oreo has you beat!
  • When the Oreo cookie was first sold, it sold for 25 cents a pound. Today you can purchase 14.3 oz. on sale for $3.49 or at regular price for $4.49.
    • I teach reading, so I’ll let you do the price comparison on this one.


  • The DOUBLE STUF Oreo cookie was introduced in 1974.
    • This is my favorite Oreo cookie. In fact, I turn my nose up to the classic Oreo.


  • It wasn’t until February of 2013 that the MEGA STUF hit the cookie market.
    • I’ve never tried the MEGA STUF Oreo cookie. It sounds super-yummy!


  • There are many different varieties of Oreos to meet your cookie craving needs. There’s Mini Oreos, Football Oreos, and Oreo Thins. Here are some that I stumbled upon when I was checking Oreo availability at my local Target:
  • Then there are the limited edition Oreos. My research stated that there are SpongeBob SquarePants Oreos, Pumpkin Spice Oreos, and even Key Lime Pie Oreos. I managed to locate Birthday Cake Oreos and Peeps Oreos. Yes, Peeps Oreos!
  • Last but not least, Oreos are best enjoyed with a glass of cold milk. So go grab a glass and an Oreo, or two, and enjoy!


Happy National Oreo Cookie Day!

  1. I imagine it’s now your responsibility to taste test a few of those alternative flavors today, Amy, or at least to enjoy a classic! Happy cookie eating!

  2. Amy, you sure do know how to inspire me on a Monday morning! Oreos! I’m going to buy some today. Hope they’re on sale at my grocery store. Taking them apart, dipping them in milk–my mouth is watering.

  3. Oh, Amy, when I found out the Peeps version was coming out, I thought, “Oh, nooooooo! I hope my husband does not discover them while grocery shopping!” So far, he hasn’t. But I loved reading this post as the Oreo cookie, dunked in icy cold milk, was a childhood favorite. I confess, I can’t buy them or I’d go through the entire packet in three days. Sigh!

  4. I may need to find the Peeps ones for my daughter, who loves Peeps! I love the different ones they have created, but didn’t know about the key lime pie ones. I adore key lime pie. Thanks for the reminder of this special day, Amy!

  5. I must admit to being a bit of a cookie snob. I like mine homemade, but when I eat a prepared cookie, Oreos, are my first choice. For a long time, my husband kept double stuff Oreos around. He doesn’t do that anymore, thank goodness! Because I do love cookies and will indulge in whatever is available, always with a glass of cold milk.
