The first batch of Oreo cookies was made at the original Nabisco bakery in New York in 1912. The company is releasing limited edition "Birthday Cake" Oreos.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. This week, the Oreo cookie celebrated a milestone birthday - turning 100. The very first batch of Oreos was made at the original Nabisco bakery in New York in 1912. After a century spent in American pantries, the company is releasing a limited edition birthday cake Oreo. It has competition, though. The Girl Scouts also turn 100 this year, though they didn't start selling their cookies until 1917. It's MORNING EDITION.
