After 100 years of being dunked, licked and eaten, milk’s favorite cookie received a global birthday party Tuesday.
The wildly popular sandwich cookie first started selling in 1912.
Some of the festivities for this dessert was an anniversary celebration in Shanghai, China.
The president of Kraft Foods China, Shawn Warren, spoke, while decorations included fireworks and Oreo advertisements galore.
The official Oreo websitehas numerous activities for those seeking to celebrate. You can share pictures, stories and video of favorite Oreo moments.
After a small fee of $3.99, you can send a cookie gram and a real package of Oreo cookies. There are Oreo video games at the Oreo Arcade.Finally, you can send a personalized video message from the band Lady Antebellum and Oreo.
Nabisco hosted a birthday party flash mob dance, led by a giant Oreo. Following that, Lady Antebellum performed for shoppers.
This slideshow has pictures of Oreos and its various forms throughout the years since its creation and photographs of some of the events for the anniversary.
But now that these events have passed, there are still activities you can do to celebrate Oreos.
The Kraft website, in honor of the 100 years, has countless recipes featuring the black and white cookie, such as an Oreo birthday cupcake cake and Oreo party on a stick.
Finally, Nabisco released a limited edition version of the Oreo with a birthday theme in mind. The birthday Oreo has a more retro design and the cream filling has rainbow sprinkles mixed in.
