“Just heard a British person call Oreos “chocolate sandwich biscuits‘“

Oreos are a trademarked brand of sandwich cookies that were invented in the United States. British call cookies “biscuits.”

“Just heard a British person call Oreos ‘chocolate sandwich biscuits’ and I finally understand why the Revolutionary War had to happen” was posted on Twitter by Reagan Rose on March 9, 2020.


Wikipedia: Oreo
Oreo (/ˈɔːrioʊ/) is a brand of creme-filled sandwich cookie consisting of two (usually chocolate) wafers with a sweet crème filling. It was introduced by Nabisco on March 6, 1912, and through a series of corporate acquisitions, mergers and splits both Nabisco and the Oreo brand have been owned by Mondelez International since 2012.
