O, the lickability of that creamy center. O, the dunkability of the perfectly sized sandwich of yum. O-reo.
Today, the Oreo—the ubiquitous, best-selling cookie of the 20th century—marks 100 years on the market. More than 12 billion Oreos are consumed each year, made with 22 million pounds of cocoa, 64.1 million pounds of cream filling and crafted by the skilled hands of members of BCTGM (the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers) union at Kraft Foods/Nabisco plants throughout the United States and Canada.
