As grocery lists across the U.S. get filled each and everyday, cookies always sneak their way into the grocery cart, and list somehow. After all how could we survive without cookies. As kids, it was a must in my home and neighborhood. From the good old home-made cookie to great brand names like Nabisco. Nabisco has been baking goodness into cookies since 1898. The location of that goodness is East Hanover, NJ.
The Nabisco company parted ways with Kraft Foods in 2012 and now the art of cookie making and baking the very best in cookies belongs to Mondelez International. This company was known as National Dairy Products since 1923 and they are established in Deerfield, Illinois. So many people ask why would Kraft part with Nabisco? After all this is one of the more noticed brands in grocery stores all across the U.S. The main reason is, it was an attempt to split into two companies for Kraft. Plus having been purchased by Phillip Morris, the parent company of Kraft for $14.9 million in the year 2000. The upside of this business venture was huge. But all the loyal Nabisco fans can rest assured that the company was only moved for those purposes in 2012 and nothing else. There won't be a Twinkie situation here!
So having given you the history of the Nabisco company along with the movement and shifts within the Kraft Foods network, now we can move along into the tops 5 cookies on the planet. Gourmet cookies aside of course. We will keep these to mass- produced cookies. Here is my list of the top five:
The Oreo (most will not disagree!)
The Fig Newton
Fudge Stripes (Keebler)
In my book 4 of the top 5 are made by Nabisco products or Mondelez International. Keebler cookies have long been favorites as well and have an extensive collection of cookies, but I think most people will agree that The Oreo is the top cookie. Milk and cookies are a strong household bonding tradition for many families mine included. So if you have not yet started a Milk and cookies tradition in your home, get going and try some of the top 5 cookies in this article today.
