Today marks 100 years since Oreo cookies have been twisted, licked and dunked. During that time, the cream-filled chocolate treats have delighted the hearts, the senses and the imaginations of Oreo lovers worldwide and now Oreo is inviting us to join them in the monumental occasion.
A visit to the Oreo website, will take you to a nostalgic place in time in which childhood was synonymous with wonder, innocence and fun. According to the Spirit of Childhood Report - 2012, such carefree memories are at risk. It only seems fitting that Oreo is encouraging us to celebrate their birthday with them by "Joining the Movement" and setting our inner child loose.
The movement is about reclaiming the simplicity of life, savoring childhood and creating memories that are spirited and fun; one moment at a time. Oreo is encouraging people to share their Oreo photos, videos and stories with them so they in turn may share them with the world. It is a unique opportunity for friends and family to create memories that are effortless yet meaningful. The goal is to reach one million precious moments.
My little one thought it was remarkable that the amazing yummy treat was celebrating its 100th birthday today. After discovering that the Oreo factory was located right here in Montreal, he pleaded for me to take him for a visit. The excitement in his eyes and the wonder in his voice was an enduring reaction that belongs in the Oreo Moments Gallery.
My son has finally reached the age in which exploring the many ways to enjoy the acclaimed sandwich cookie becomes a part of his own magical moments; adding to the marvel of what a simple childhood represents.
