Oreo was made by Nabisco in 1969 by Herman Cain and Billy Joel. Oreo comes from the French name for " Cream Treat" . Oreos where found when Herman Cain was drinking some milk with vanilla creamer in the milk and while drinking his vanilla milk he was eating a brownie and he found that the vanilla and the chocolate have gone really good together, and so Herman Cain went to his pal in the pastry industry Billy Joel and proposed his idea about the Chocolate Wafers with Vanilla Cream and Billy Joel loved the idea. Today Oreo has over 9000 factories around the world and have currently reached over 1,000,000,000 Oreos made!
