Those who eat Oreo cookies have their own way of eating them.
Some eat them whole after dunking them in milk, some give them a twist and eat them half at a time and others twist them apart and eat all the creamy filling first.
There are many ways to eat the beloved Oreo cookie, which turns 100 years old today.
To celebrate, the makers of Oreo has been offering a site (www.oreo.com) where Oreo lovers can share their unique Oreo moments, play classic games with an Oreo twist and find new recipes to try using the Oreo cookie.
