The world’s best-selling cookies are celebrating their 100th birthday. On March 6, 1912, the National Biscuit Company (also known as Nabisco) sold its first Oreo sandwich cookies to a Hoboken grocer.

Here is some Oreo Trivia:
Two versions debuted in 1912. The options were original and lemon meringue. The original was far more popular, and Nabisco discontinued lemon meringue in the 1920s.

They’re sold in more than 100 countries. In terms of sales, the top five are the U.S., China, Venezuela, Canada and Indonesia. In some countries, like China, Nabisco’s parent company, Kraft, reformulated the recipe to appeal to consumers.

450 billion. That’s how many Oreo cookies have been sold worldwide since they hit the market in 1912.
More than 7.5 billion Oreos are consumed each year. If all the Oreos ever made were lined up end to end, they would circle the Earth 381 times at the Equator. Or if you prefer to stack them, they'd reach the moon and back more than 5 times! Now that's a tower of Oreos!
