The Oreo, "milk’s favorite cookie," is celebrating its 100th birthday by marking its territory on all 7 continents. It's last stop on the cream-filled sandwich cookie's globetrotting tour was Antarctica.
The cool location for the birthday celebration is fitting considering the Oreo was born on the same day that the South Pole was discovered. What better way to celebrate than to twist and dunk the iconic chocolate cookies in a glass of milk in Antarctica?
Some 5,000 Oreo cookies were delivered to scientists at Palmer Station in the Antarctic Peninsula this week.
"Having the chance to enjoy an Oreo cookie and glass of milk is like having a little piece of home here at the station,” said Dr. James McClintock, a researcher at Palmer Station who received the cookies from the Oreo Man, the cookie's mascot.
