First we twist it, then we lick it, then we dunk it (and eat it)!
We can picture this commercial in our mind. If you’re in the era where you’ll have put up with TV commercials, then you’ll definitely remember this twist link dunk slogan by Oreo. Whether you like it or not, we can’t denied the fact that Oreo is one of the most popular confectioneries around. It was first introduced in New York back in March 6, 1912 to compete with British cookies. Today, the Americans celebrate the National Oreo Cookie Day every March 6th. Yup, if a day is dedicated to celebrate you, you’ve definitely have made it in life, just like Oreo.
Here are more fun facts about Oreo. Did you know?
- Over 450 billion Oreos have been sold since 1912
- Oreos are sold in more than 100 countries worldwide
- More women dunk this cookie in milk than men
- A majority of men bite this cookie whole than women
- Oreos are 71% cookie and 29% creme filling
Oreo’s successful world domination is also contributed by its constant innovation. A large variety of Oreo flavours and concepts emerge over time. Let’s look at some of them which might be appealing to some but weird to others, shall we?
1. Hot & Spicy Cinnamon

This flavour of Oreo was introduced this year before Valentine ’s Day. Instead of ordinary white milk crème, it features a bright, blood red cinnamon candy crème which sandwiches between the traditional chocolate Oreo wafer.
2. Reduced Fats

Good news to Oreo lover who wants to have a taste of it without expanding their waistline! This type of Oreo taste just like a regular Oreo cookie, just that the crème seemed less creamier (makes sense?). While it’s clearly written on its packaging that it has “35% less fat than original Oreo”, we’re not sure if anyone have really put it to the test by experimenting on themselves if this version indeed has lesser fat as Oreo have claimed. Any takers?
3. Birthday cake

This is not a metaphorically named Oreo flavoured birthday cake just for the sake of it; it IS a birthday cake flavoured Oreo cookies! This is sweeter than the regular with its filling contains colourful sprinkles on it. I guess this is why we call this Oreo a birthday cake flavoured Oreo.
4, Original Oreo

Shoutout to those who loves things original and untainted (some interpret this as unadventurous). The original Oreo consists of two chocolate wafers with a sweet crème filling in between. It tastes sweet and peoples often dunk it into a glass of milk before eating it.
5. Half & half (Chocolate & Vanilla)

This version consist of two different crème in it, which is half chocolate and the other is vanilla flavour. The best of both worlds in one bite!
In China, Mondelez International introduced Oreo in wasabi flavour. The crème is green in colour, and taste definitely wasabi.
7. Hot Chicken Wing Flavor

This hot chicken wing flavour was introduced along with the the wasabi flavoured Oreo cookies. The hot chicken wing Oreo features bright orange filling inside of the original cookies.
8. Peanut Butter

The answer to all PB fans! The texture and taste of the filling is a perfect for peanut butter lovers, just like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.
9. Ice cream sandwich

I think everyone is quite familiar with the Oreo ice cream aka Oreo McFlurry by McDonalds, but in countries like China, Indonesia, and Japan, some of the more popular Oreo flavors taste just like ice cream, such as Green Tea, Blueberry, and Orange.
10. Oreo Mini

This isn’t exactly a flavour but the size is as cute as a button! It taste just like any other ordinary Oreo but its cuteness definitely influence our judgement towards its taste. Plus, this is perfect for those who likes to devour each cookie in a bite without looking like a beast!
