A Love Letter to Oreo on National Oreo Day

It’s no secret that we at Boxed are obsessed with Oreo cookies. And on National Oreo Cookie Day, we thought we’d look back at all the beautiful times we’ve shared together. Whether it’s sharing Oreo recipes, Oreo hacks, or building a living room set out of 100,000 Oreos (yep, we did that), our devotion runs deep.

Oreo, we love you. Let us count the ways.

1. Together, we built the world’s most delicious living room

All we ever wanted was to build a home together. So we built the world’s first and largest Oreo living room out of over 100,000 cookies and broadcast it on Facebook Live. We didn’t know how good life could be until we sat on a couch made out of Oreo cookies by an Oreo fireplace complete with red velvet Oreo “flames.”

Nothing can hold a candle to the torch we bear for you, Oreo.

2. We smothered you… in peanut butter

Unfortunately for jelly, we found peanut butter a new partner. Yep, we coated you in a layer of Peanut Butter & Co. Smooth Operator Peanut Butter. If that was wrong, we don’t want to be right.

3. We pulled a disappearing act

We’re sorry. Sometimes, we just can’t help ourselves. This time, we posted the evidence to Instagram because we want the world to know how irresistible you are.

4. We got naughty… then made nice

We partnered with Andie Mitchell, New York Times bestselling author of It Was Me All Along: A Memoir, to create all kinds of gooey Oreo recipes we knew our family and friends couldn’t resist. Sharing is caring… and what better way to show you care than by baking together?

5. We made you our date for Hollywood’s biggest award night

You were the best date EVER for the red carpet. While we live-tweeted the show (and that best film gaffe), you kept us company and reminded us just how dashing you can be.

Oreo, every day with you is a slam dunk. So on National Oreo Cookie Day, we raise our glass of milk to you. We can’t wait to see what the future holds and know that, with you involved, it will be far from black and white. Here’s looking at you, gorgeous.
