Happy 100th birthday Oreo

(WFLX)- It's been a century since the first person twisted, licked and dunked.
The Oreo turns 100 today.

The cookie started on March 6,19-12 in a Manhattan biscuit factory.

To celebrate, Kraft, the company that now owns Oreo, is releasing a limited-edition birthday cake version of the creme-filled sandwich cookies.

Oreo's are sold in a hundred countries and fetch more than a million dollars in global revenue.
The cookies even have a Facebook following, with 25-million fans.

A statement on Oreo's official web site says: "In a world that's become far too adult, a couple of Oreo cookies, a glass of milk, and a shared twist, lick and dunk is all it takes to set your inner kid loose."

On the site, you can send birthday video messages.

And- for 3-99, you can buy a cookie gram and send a coupon to a friend's smartphone for a package of Oreo's.
