Oreos have been around since 1912, are sold in over 100 countries, and are the best-selling cookies in the world. Who knew?
Why are they called Oreos anyway?
In 1912, when they first debuted, they were called Oreo Biscuit. Then, in 1921, the cookie’s name was changed to Oreo Sandwich as a nod to the stacking of two chocolate cookies with a creamy filing sandwiched inside. And, in 1937 (ad pictured below), the name became a fancier, Oreo Crème Sandwich. Finally, in 1974 they were called Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookie. Or, Oreo for short.
The origin of the name Oreo is unknown. One theory is that it comes from the French word or, meaning gold, or from an Ancient Greek root meaning mountain. Others believe that the cookie was named Oreo simply because the name was short and easy to pronounce. Another theory, proposed by food writer Stella Parks, is that Oreos are named after a plant, Oreodaphne, which is in the Lauraceae or laurel (plant) family. She saw that the original design of the Oreo includes a flowering plant, laurel, wreath. -Wikipedia
Not the original
Believe it or not, Oreo is a knockoff! In other words, four years before Oreo debuted, Hydrox sandwich cookies made their appearance on store shelves. In other words, Hydrox is actually the original sandwich cookie!
Hydrox debuted in 1908, and was manufactured by Sunshine Biscuits for over 90 years. The similar Oreo cookie, introduced in 1912, was inspired by the Hydrox. The Oreo eventually exceeded Hydrox in popularity which resulted in the Hydrox being perceived as an imitator, although it was the original. Hydrox was largely discontinued in 1999 after Sunshine was acquired by Keebler, which was later acquired by Kellogg’s. In September 2015, the product was re-introduced by Leaf Brands. Hydrox cookies have a less-sweet filling and a crunchier cookie shell that has been noted to become less soggy in milk. -Wikipedia
Some people apparently believe that Oreos are brown, while others think they’re black. As a result, Oreo was forced to make an official ruling on the color of their cookie. They said, Oreos do not have a color assigned to the cookie portion of an OREO. Some people think the OREO is a shade of brown, while others view the color closer to black.
