Today is National Oreo Cookie Day!
How you eat an Oreo can say a lot about the type of person you are. Kraft took a survey of 2,000 Oreo lovers and concluded:
- Dunkers: tend to be energetic, adventurous, and social;
- Twisters: are sensitive, emotional, artistic, and trendy;
- Biters: are easy-going, self-confident, and optimistic.
More women dunk, while more men bite their Oreo Cookies.
