Oreo is a popular cookie sold by Kraft Foods. The original Oreo was mound-shaped and available in two flavours: lemon meringue and cream. Today, there are several variants available. In India, the traditional type with two flat chocolate cookies sandwiching a layer of cream, is very popular.
Oreo Fudge Sundae Creme (Limited Edition): Launched in 2009, this limited edition comprises chocolate ring cookies with the traditional white cream filling on half the ring, and fudge cream on the other half.
Golden Oreo: This variant comprises vanilla wafers with a traditional white cream filling.
Mini Oreo: These are bite-sized versions of ordinary Oreos, released in 2000.
Double Delight Oreo: Introduced way back in 1987, this version features chocolate cookies with two fillings, notably, peanut butter and chocolate; mint and cream; or coffee and cream.
Crushed oreo cookies
The biscuits are crushed either by hand or by placing them in a cloth and pounding with a hammer for a few seconds. The latter procedure tends to give a finer crushed product than the former.
Powdered oreo cookies
Grind the cookies in a food processor, or place them between sheets of cloth or plastic and smash them with a pestle. The powder can be used as a topping for cakes and desserts.

How to store

• Oreo cookies are a quick source of carbohydrate, and help keep hunger away.
• Since these biscuits are high in sugar and fat content, have them in limited amounts only.
