Although I don't really remember my first time biting into an OREO cookie (I'm old, okay?) carefully twisting and pulling the chocolate cookies apart, then licking off ALL the creme (from both sides, even) before dunking them into a tall glass of icy-cold milk was most likely involved.
However, I can still picture my much younger self, sitting on the floor next to my twin brother and waaaaay to close to my grandmother's Zenith console (look it up, youngsters!) watching one of our favorite cartoons (Underdog, no doubt) passing the cellophane sleeve back and forth, while indulging in a little after school snack or twenty.
Even today, all grown up (mostly) with mostly-grown up kids of my own (SOB!) I still pull apart my OREO cookies and, although I've since lost my taste for milk [shiver] a little piece of me travels back to my grandmother's parlor and the singing of The OREO Song may or may not be involved.
Now, it's your turn:
