The Oreo cookie turned 100 today! To celebrate, you should pick up a package of limited edition Birthday Cake Oreos while they’re still on shelves. I found these at the Safeway on Market in the Castro.
Birthday Cake Oreo cookies have the regular Oreo face on one side and a special stamp on the other. Sandwiched between them: vanilla-flavored cream and rainbow sprinkles.
For me, these cookies fall into the same category as Pillsbury’s Funfetti cake, Duncan Hines’ now defunct peach cake, and any brand of yellow cake mix: my discerning junk food palate approves.
