Oreo Encourages Global Fans To Make The World's Favorite Cookie
The World's "Most Liked" Cookie

TORONTO, Feb. 14 /CNW/ - Oreo, the World's Favorite Cookie, is asking fans around the world to join in its attempt to set the Guinness World Records® mark for the "Most 'likes' on a Facebook post in 24 hours."

The record attempt will begin on Tuesday, February 15 at 9 a.m. EST, when the Oreo Facebook community of 16 million fans from around the world will have 24-hours to "like" a post from the iconic cookie brand. Per Guinness World Records rules established for this category, Oreo fans will have to rally a minimum of 45,000 "likes" to earn the title and become the World's "Most Liked" Cookie. If successful, Oreo will become the first brand to hold a Facebook Guinness World Records title.

Oreo is beloved the world over and attracts fans not only because of its delicious taste but for its unique twist, lick and dunk ritual - a special moment of childlike delight enjoyed over an Oreo cookie and milk that translates into any language or culture. This Guinness World Records attempt aims to bring to life the brand's ability to bring families worldwide together in new, contemporary ways…all for the shared love of an Oreo cookie.
