Oreo ready to celebrate 100th birthday
NORTHFIELD, Ill. — Sandwich cookie Oreo is celebrating a milestone this March: its 100th birthday.
To mark turning a century old on March 6, the cookie brand has taken to Facebook and its Nabisco World webpage to celebrate "the kid inside all year long with fun games and experiences to share." On Facebook, Oreo has changed its profile picture every day since Jan. 1 to spotlight a Facebook fan that is celebrating a birthday. Meanwhile, on the webpage, Oreo invites consumers to share their Oreo moments via the Moments Gallery, in addition to virtual arcade games from around the world, including Oreo Man (a play on Pac-Man), among others.
"Since 1912, we've made it our business to make life a little less serious," the website reads. "In a world that's become far too adult, a couple of Oreo cookies, a glass of milk, and a shared twist, lick and dunk is all it takes to set your inner kid loose. Celebrate the kid inside all of us."
