With it's creamy sweet center and crispy dark wafers, it's no wonder that Oreo cookies is the best selling cookie of the 20th century. Created nearly 100 years ago (in 1912), the Oreo has changed very little from it's original form. Oreo cookies are also the best selling cookies in China, although it's not as popular in the UK (the British prefer to dunk their lower-sugar burboun biscuits in tea).
Over the years, Nabisco has experimented with Chocolate Creme Oreos, Strawberry Oreos, Mint Creme Oreos, Double Stuff, Mini Oreos and holiday Oreos (the creme is tinted orange for Halloween, pink for Easter and red for Christmas). You can also find 100 calorie Oreo packs if you're looking to watch your weight.
We've taken what is arguably the world's most popular cookie and made it even more sweet by enrobing it in luscious Belgian white chocolate and applying a happy edible image. Each decorated Oreo is then "framed" with colorful candy sprinkles. The result is a cheery gift basket that is sure to bring a smile to nearly anyone!
