A close second ranking is the Cinnamon Bun Oreo. Each year, over 40 Billion Oreos are made in factories all over the world. These cookies are enjoyed in over 100 different countries.
Oreos even have a street named after them. “Oreo Way” is in the heart of New York City. “Oreo Way” earned its name because it was the birthplace of the Oreo. In a Nabisco Bakery in 1912, the first Oreo was made. Originally, they were created to compete with the popular animal cookies at the time. These Oreos were sold for 20 cents a pound and placed in a metal tin when purchased.
Over the years, hundreds of different Oreo flavors have been created. Some unique limited editions are the Fruity Crisp Oreo, Oreo Limeade, Oreo Caramel Apple, and even the Pumpkin Spice Oreo! Currently, the hot limited-edition Oreos are the Lady Gaga Oreos. These multicolored Oreos are “Chromatica” themed, which is Lady Gaga’s sixth studio album. They are pink cookies with green icing, look spectacular, and the Lady Gaga Oreos are vegan.
Actually, all Oreos are considered Vegan. Additionally, Oreos recently released a gluten– free Oreo! When the gluten-free Oreos were released in January of 2021, social media exploded with tons of people who were gluten-free posting their reactions to their first Oreo. The Oreo never disappointed and most of the videos were concluded with big smiles and gratitude to Oreo for including them.
