Oreo has released a new cookie, and it's so good, they had to name it twice. This limited-edition cookie is called "The Most Oreo Oreo," and it's basically an Oreo cookie stuffed with an Oreo cookie. So fill your glass (or mug, if you prefer), and let's dip into the history of the world's top-selling cookie.
The first Oreo cookie was made in 1912, and by 1928, the company went global. It took Nabisco 62 years before it played with the recipe to create the first variation: Double Stuf. In 1991, the company used orange creme to make a special limited-edition Halloween cookie. By 2006, Oreo became the top-selling cookie in China. The creme expanded to triple-size for Mega Stuf cookies in 2013, but 2 years later, it slimmed down for Oreo Thins. In 2019, the company introduced its ridiculously overfilled Most Stuf cookie.
Life is filled with options. For the consumer, that's a good thing. For the manufacturer, however, it's a nightmare. How do you keep a brand fresh when there are so many other new choices constantly popping up? The answer? Limit availability and switch things up. Girls Scouts do this exceptionally well. By the time the end of January rolls around, people are craving this one type of cookie that they can only get for a short time, and they always want to know what the new flavor will be. Similarly, by having so many limited-edition cookies, Oreo has managed to remain at the top for over 100 years.
While The Most Oreo Oreo is a cookie that will find favor with traditional Oreo cookie lovers (it is an Oreo inside an Oreo, after all) there have been much more exotic offerings in the past. Here are 10 of the most outrageous Oreo flavors (so far):
