Oreo is a brand of cookie consisting of two chocolate cookies with a sweet cream filling in between. The brand is known for its distinctive design and twist, lick, and dunk ritual.
Oreo was first introduced by the National Biscuit Company (Nabisco) on March 6, 1912.
The Oreo brand became the best-selling cookie in the United States in 1912.
In 1992, Nabisco was acquired by Kraft Foods, which later became the Mondelez International company.
Oreo has several variations and flavors, including Double Stuf, Golden Oreos, and Oreo Thins.
Oreo is currently sold in over 100 countries.

The best way to eat an Oreo is a matter of personal preference, but the traditional ritual involves twisting the two cookies apart, licking the sweet cream filling, and dunking the cookies in milk.
Most varieties of Oreos are not vegan, as they contain non-vegan ingredients like milk and whey. However, some limited edition flavors are vegan-friendly.
Different colors of Oreo cream are usually reserved for limited edition flavors or seasonal promotions.
A single regular-sized Oreo cookie contains approximately 53 calories.
Oreos are designed to be a highly palatable and convenient snack, with a combination of sugar, fat, and salt that can trigger the brain's pleasure centers and lead to addiction-like behaviors in some individuals.
