Interestingly, when the Oreo was first introduced by Nabisco in 1912, it used a much more organic wreath for its emboss, later augmented with two pairs of turtledoves in a 1924 redesign.

    J’ai découvert ces biscuits lors d’un séjour aux USA. Ce qui m’a le plus intrigué, c’est leur couleur. Presque noire. Ce qui n’est pas du tout courant en Europe.
    Maintenant, on en trouve également en Suisse, à la Coop ainsi qu’à la Migros sous un autre nom.
    Bonne soirée

    Thanks to Oreo I’ve discovered your site, is gorgeous!
    I also written article about oreo history and I’ve read that emblem is somehow connected with Maltan Cross and Christianity.

    Here is my post (it is in Polish, but google translator attached). Maybe you will find it interesting:
