Happy birthday to a very old cookie

Oreo cookies.

From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s three things coming up on Thursday, March 6th:

In Washington, the Commerce Department reports on factory orders for January.

Chain stores are scheduled to report sales data for February.

And the Oreo turns 102. The crème filled cookie can be found in more than 100 countries. Doesn’t look a day over 25, we think.
