Somewhere around 2011, at a shelf between Parle Gs and Hide and Seeks, the blue packet of Oreo found its place, in both, Indian supermarkets as well as the local kirana shops. It may not seem like much now, but back then, it somewhat revolutionized the Indian chocolate biscuit market. In 1912, the National Biscuit Company introduced to the world the Oreo cookie, but of course, it took close to a century for it to come to India. On March 6th, 1912, the company filed for a trademark on this cookie and that, my friends, is why this date is celebrated as National Oreo Day, ever since!
On National Oreo Day, here are a few reasons why we love Oreo so much.
-The combinations it has given us!
See, I love eating my Oreo biscuit just as much as the next person, but you can’t deny the mouth-watering combinations Oreo has made possible. From Oreo milkshakes (My favorites are at Fables and Prithvi) to Oreo Brownies (Theobroma!), to the Oreo Cornetto Ice Cream, to Frozen Yogurt toppings, Oreo has made our regular tasty chocolate flavors so much more interesting.
