NATIONAL FINISHERS DAY / NATIONAL OREO DAY
Today’s Daily Double fits nicely with the Dawgs’ amazing performances at the NFL Combine, especially big # 99.
Finisher’s Medal Day on the first Sunday in March recognizes the long hours, days, weeks and even months of training thousands of men and women across the country have put in to achieve their goals of completing a race. It’s clear all of the Dawgs at the combine put in a ton of work to get to where they were able to unleash so many incredible performances. Hat’s off to them and everyone on the staff who had a hand in helping them get to this point. I think we can call the combine a “finish” although JD did say they weren’t done yet.
The second half of the Daily Double recognizes the favorite cookie in America. I trust JD will be able to enjoy one or two of these tasty items and not affect his weight too much.
NATIONAL OREO COOKIE DAY
Be ready to observe by having your glass of milk handy as it is National Oreo Cookie Day. This day is recognized across the nation each year on March 6th.
The Oreo sandwich cookie is made up of two chocolate disks containing a sweet cream filling and is loved by millions. Since its introduction, the Oreo cookie has become the best-selling cookie in the United States.
The National Biscuit Company (today known as Nabisco) first developed and produced the “Oreo Biscuit” in 1912 at its Chelsea factory in New York City. Today, the block on which the factory was located is known as “Oreo Way.”
- The name “Oreo” was first trademarked on March 14, 1912.
- The first Oreo cookies in the United States sold for 25 cents a pound in clear glass topped novelty cans.
- In 1912, the Oreo Biscuit was renamed “Oreo Sandwich.”
- In 1948, the Oreo Sandwich was renamed “Oreo Creme Sandwich.”
- William A. Turnier developed the modern-day Oreo design in 1952 to include the Nabisco logo.
- Nabisco’s principal food scientist, Sam Procello, developed the modern Oreo cookie filling.
