Symbols engraved on the exterior of Oreo biscuits connect the product to the purported conspiracy operations of the Knights Templar and Freemasons. The Ornate pattern on every Oreo cookie is a mystery wrapped in an enigma between two chocolate wafers and a delectable cream filling.
A circle with a two-bar cross is a Nabisco logo and that stands for a European symbol of quality. The geometric pattern of a dot and four triangles radiating outward is a symbol that once again connects Oreos with the history of the First Crusade. The circle has many mystical meanings including a circle of life, creation, infinity, power, love, and most importantly, change. So, Oreo is not just a tasty round cookie, it’s also a friendly reminder that the power of changing your life is all in your hands.
The wafer’s decorative design, on the other hand, is the Oreo’s visual hallmark. The design is stamped out by brass rollers running over sheets of chocolate dough and consists of a succession of four-leaf clovers surrounding the word “OREO,” which is put within Nabisco’s conventional logo, a horizontal oval with what seems to be a television antenna reaching up from it. A broken (cut) line produces a broken circle around the clovers. Beyond that, the cookie’s edges are somewhat ridged, acting as a visual framing for the ornate center as well as a manner to grab the cookie with relative ease.
Over the last 105 years, the Oreo has gone through several name changes. When they were initially released in 1912, they were known as the Oreo Biscuit (we’ll explain why in a moment). The cookie then accepted its form and was called the Oreo Sandwich in 1921. The name was altered once again in 1937. They took a high-brow approach this time, adopting the moniker Oreo Crème Sandwich. They surely sound finer, don’t they? The cookie’s last (for the time being) name change occurred in 1974, when it was renamed the Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookie, or Oreo for short.
The legendary brand’s inconsistent name changes aren’t its only flaw. The rumor’s around the specific name are likewise a mess. According to a Time article, the name Oreo may have sprung from “or,” the French word for gold, which was also the original box color. Thought Co also provides insight into the naming process. They claim that the name “Oreo” is derived from Greek meaning “mountain,” the original form of the cookie, or that it is as easy as combining “re” from cream and hence the two “os” in chocolate.
