OREO - America's Best Selling Cookie
Nabisco invented the OREO cookie in 1912 in New York City. The factory was located on Ninth Avenue and, should you visit NYC yourself, you can visit that block which is now known as Oreo Way!
OREO is by far the best selling cookie in the US and comes in a huge number of variations, many of which we get here at American Soda as soon as we can.
The OREO brand is now a name known worldwide and has become synonymous with creme-filled sandwich cookies.
