Today, March 6, 2012, marks the 100th birthday of our good friend, the Oreo cookie. And what a great 100 years it has been! The first Oreo cookie was sold on March 6, 1912 in Hoboken, NJ. Back then, Oreos were sold in bulk tins and by weight — 1 pound was only 30 cents! This was also the year that the Titanic sank and the South Pole was discovered. There’s some trivia for ya! *
