Twist, Lick, Dunk

[fancy_box]This is the first post in my series “Twist, Lick, Dunk: The Oreo Experience.” In this series I plan to explore the ways that Oreo (both the brand and product) is captivating consumers.[/fancy_box]

Today I’m talking about Oreos and Oreos are unquestionably delicious. Admit it; just the thought of an Oreo right now has you salivating.

Look at the cookie!!!

Look at that cookie!!!

Since its creation 1912, this simple food has remained the #1 selling cookie in America, and a staple of households and pantries worldwide. In fact, Oreo was the best-selling cookie in the entire 20th Century! And let’s be honest, it’d take a miracle for another cookie to unseat the Oreo in the 21st.

But Nabisco has made their scrumptious little cookie more than just a treat. Oreo has an identity and an extraordinary community behind that identity.

[pullquote cite=”Oreo 100th Birthday Fact Sheet”]”Oreo has a Facebook community of more than 25 million Oreo lovers around the globe, representing 200+ countries and dozens of different languages. Oreo ranks among the top five brand Facebook pages in the world!“[/pullquote]

There are two main components that I believe have led to Oreo becoming such a success.



I will dive deeper into both of these components in following posts. Join me as we delve into what exactly makes up the Oreo experience.

  1. What I want to know is why birthday cake oreos are not sold all the time!! But I agree, Oreo is one of the most well recognized and loved brands…even people that usually go for healthy snacks can’t help but eat oreos.
