Poetry Friday--Happy Oreo Cookie Day!


A big fan of Oreo cookies alerted me to the fact that today is National Oreo Cookie Day! So, let's celebrate!

If you have recently arrived from outer space, and you don't know what an Oreo cookie is, then hurry over to Wikipedia where there's more information than you could possibly want about a cookie!

I went looking for an Oreo cookie poem for today and ended up on YouTube where I found a number of short videos of Oreo poems. I recommend the one by Tucker Bryant.

Today is also the 103rd birthday of the Oreo cookie! The advertisement graphic above came from a Duke University blog post on the occasion of the Oreo cookie's centennial.

No Oreos in the video below, but there are cookies thrown about when Kermit and Cookie Monster talk about rhyming words:



I suppose the very idea of dunking and eating an Oreo is poetry enough, so treat yourself to package and pour a big glass of milk, and have fun!

The Poetry Friday Round-Up is taking place at Robyn Campbell's blog. Stop by!

  2. What fun! Did you hear Hydrox is coming back? It pre-dates Oreos and when they were still being made by Sunshine Bakery, I preferred them to Oreos.

    1. We weren't a Hydrox family. Truth be told, we were big fans of Burry's chocolate chip cookies. I can still remember the jingle, "Heavens to Betsy, Burry's are good. The best darn cookie in the neighborhood. Heavens to Betsy, Burry's are good. Burry, Burry good..." I believe they were a NY-NJ brand.

  3. Between Jama's blog post and yours, I'm feeling a chocolate urge coming on! And even though I'm still a fan of the original chocolate sandwich cookie, Hydrox, I'm willing to celebrate Oreo's birthday, too!

  4. Some wonderful colleague brought lots of oreos to school today (students were gone, staff work day) & sweetened us up all the day. Yum!
