Grab a glass of milk and get ready to celebrate National Oreo Cookie Day. 
 
It's observed each year on March 6th.
 
Since it’s introduction, the Oreo cookie has become the best-selling cookie in the United States.
 
The National Day Calendar says the National Biscuit Company (today known as Nabisco) first developed and produced the “Oreo Biscuit” in 1912 at its Chelsea factory in New York City. The block on which the factory was located is known as “Oreo Way”.
 
  • The name “Oreo” was first trademarked on March 14, 1912.
  • The first Oreo cookies in the United States sold for 25 cents a pound in clear glass topped novelty cans.
  • In 1912, the Oreo Biscuit was renamed to “Oreo Sandwich”.
  • In 1948, the Oreo Sandwich was renamed to “Oreo Creme Sandwich”.
  • William A. Turnier developed the modern-day Oreo design in 1952 to include the Nabisco logo.
  • Nabisco’s principal food scientist, Sam Procello, developed the modern Oreo cookie filling.
HOW TO OBSERVE:
The National Day Calendar suggests grabbing a glass of milk and a handful of Oreos to enjoy and use #NationalOreoCookieDay to post on social media.
