Nabisco's worldwide famous Oreo cookie has marked its 100th year of sales on Tuesday, March 6.
Nabisco describes the two chocolate biscuits with cream filling between them as "Milk's Favorite Cookie." After it was first sold on March 6, 1912 in Hoboken, N.J. the cookie continued to gain popularity, and remains a constant staple in youthful snack packs as well as in households of today.
Oreo Global and the World's Favorite Cookie have announced an initiative "to reignite the spirit of childhood be celebrating the kid inside all of us," according to a press release Tuesday.
Concerned that kids are growing up too fast, Oreo urges their fans to "put down its cell phones, close its laptops and take a moment to celebrate the kid inside all of us."
The initiative also invites Oreo fans to share how they are celebrating Oreo's birthday by posting a photo, video, or story in the Oreo Moments Gallery at Oreo.com/birthday or on Facebook.
Birthday celebrations in honor of the cookie are taking place worldwide in places such as Canada, Venezuela, the Middle East, and China, among others.
On Twitter, fans of the cookie are posting comments about the special 100th birthday.
Food Network star and southern food specialist Paula Deen posted a special message on her Twitter account Tuesday.
