The Oreo is arguably the most beloved cookie of all time and today, everyone’s favourite chocolate sandwich cookie celebrates its 100th birthday! It’s time to relive all those beloved childhood memories and enjoy celebrating with a year-long Oreo Birthday Party!
To help Canadians get into the party spirit, Oreo has all kinds of exciting promotion happening right now! From a special limited edition Birthday Cake Oreo to three brand new recipes featuring tasty Oreo cookies, there are tons of ways to celebrate! I was so excited when I received an amazing party box to help me feel like a kid again, with a little help from Oreo!
While the entire box was so much fun, the highlight of the party pack was definitely the special-edition Birthday Cake Oreos. The smell when I opened these cookies was just incredible and we devoured the entire package in just over a day; they were that irresistible!
As the crowning finale of the celebration today, Oreo also commissioned not one, not two but THREE incredible birthday cakes! My personal favourite is this gorgeous cake from Calgary cake artist and Oreo fan, Rose Sen – owner of Sen Cakes, and Cake Decorating Instructor for SAIT Polytechnic.
And if you want to host your own celebration, you can’t go wrong with this scrumptious new recipe!
