Happy chocolate caramel day!
It’s the best day to put your diet on a hold and enjoy a bite of Millionaire Shortbread or other gooey caramel-infused cocoa goodness.
I was happily snacking on Belgian dark chocolate squares sans the caramel goodness, courtesy of my friend, M who had hand carried the artisanal Alex & Alex gems from Brussels — lucky me!
Separately, if you haven’t already tried Oreo’s twist, lick, dunk game — you should!
I’ve had it downloaded it on my iPad and it’s good fun with a simple premise… and you get to learn a little bit of trivia about the origins and history of Oreo flavours. (Though I can’t guarantee you won’t be craving cookies with a glass of milk soon…!)
… which brings to mind another great OREO creation in 2012: the Daily Twist — a 100-day log of OREO cookies in creative depictions to commemorate cultural events and milestones.
The campaign was developed to celebrate the 100th anniversary of our favourite chocolate-vanilla cookie!
I’ll leave you with a little trivia for today – did you know that NABISCO, the brand owner of the Oreo cookie brand, was actually the abbreviated form of the ‘National Biscuit Company’? I didn’t… till I read up a bit more on Oreos last year! : )
