Oreo’s Blowing Out 100 Candles

Generations have been enjoying them. Now the Oreo is turning 100 today. Nabisco developed the cookie in 1912 at its Chelsea factory (NYC). The Oreo cookie has no cholesterol; the presence of which is a given that a product contains animal ingredients. As a result, PETA has the Oreo on its list of “Accidentally Vegan” foods. Some might argue that PETA’s list, with its 99.9% caveat, is flawed and therefore the Oreo should not be celebrated.

PETA and chefs offer up some recipes, in case you decide to celebrate the day:
Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
Oreo Crumble Cupcakes
Colleen Grapes’ Oreo grasshopper pie
