Did you know that the Oreo cookie is 100 years old today?! I didn't! I heard it on the radio and thought "hmm if only I had known, I would have made homemade oreos" but then I heard them talking about something that made me really excited... cake flavored Oreos! So I decided to stop at the store on my way in to work so we could all celebrate this momentous occasions with some cake Oreos.
So off I went to the grocery store that's way over priced but it was on my way to work (surprisingly, it wasn't Acme but Genuardis!), so I stopped anyway. After browsing the organic/ethnic aisles, which I must admit they have an excellent selection, I made my way over to the cookie aisle and guess what?! No cake Oreos! I did pick up some regular ones though and everyone had one or two... or maybe five.
Did you know that Oreos are vegan? Not for any good reason though. Mostly because they are all chemically processed foods. I personally don't eat them because of the high fructose corn syrup and I try to avoid that as much as possible. I figure I probably get enough from the foods I don't realize have them, so if I see it on a label, I don't bother with it. If other people want to enjoy them, that's fine though! Happy Birthday Oreo Cookies!
Also, I was going to post about my butternut squash pudding but I decided to save that for another day.
