Oreo, a chocolate flavoured biscuit with a vanilla creme centre, were originally made in New York and became known by their slogan “America’s Favorite Cookie”. Oreo biscuits are now sold around the world courtesy of Kraft Foods, making their debut in the UK in May 2008.
If you like Oreo biscuits, you can now find a new addition to the Oreo range. Mini Oreo biscuits are cute, miniature versions of the regular variety Oreos and are slightly bigger than a pound coin. They’re available in a 115g tub with resealable lid or a 150g bag containing six snack packs of mini Oreos.
As a cream filled biscuit, Oreos aren’t too bad in the calorie stakes. Regular Oreos have 52 calories each or the new Double Stuff Oreo Cookies have 71 calories. But if you just want a tiny treat to keep the calories down, each Mini Oreo biscuit has just under 16 calories each.
