The best selling cookie of the 20th century, consisting of a white filling  (or cream) sandwiched between two black biscuits, has recently celebrated its centenary in US and four other countries, including China and Saudi Arabia. The origin of its name remains a mystery, but one theory suggests that the two “O” represent the cookies and the “re” in the middle stands for the cream.

If you want to eat them properly just follow the instructions.
