Can anyone provide me with the lyrics to that Oreo TV ad which sings "Oh, oh, oh ice cold milk and an oreo cookie; the taste that forever goes together with that chocolately sensation...a creamy oreo filling of an "O" - O-r-e-o!"

Anyone remember this catchy jingle?

You can listen to the entire commercial at the 80s TV Themes website for commercials. I can't believe I'm about to transcribe this ...

OREO commercial 1983
narrator: What's so special about an OREO cookie?
singer: It's a creamy lickin' chocolate sensation!
chorus: Oh. O-R-E-O!
singer: It's a creamy lickin' chocolate sensation!
chorus: Oh. O-R-E-O!
narrator: There's only ONE OREO cookie. Creamy luscious inside, real chocolate cookies outside.
chorus: It's a creamy lickin' chocolate sensation!
chorus: Oh. O-R-E-O!
narrator: OREO cookies. From Nabisco.
chorus: Oh. O-R-E-O!
chorus: America's cookie jar!

*ding!*


That's it. Really. Another jingle was as follows:

"Ice cold milk and an oreo cookie,
they forever go together in a classic combination
like the one and only creamy milk chocolate
O-R-E-O... Na-bis-co! *ding*"

I guess my favorite version of that commercial wasn't up:

It's hard to hide the kid inside when you're eating ...
An O-R-E-O! Keeps your milk from getting lonely!

Can I do my favorite Oreo song? I can, huh? Please? Thanks!

There was a hand clapping game that went with it.


Do you know exactly how to eat an Oreo?
Well to do it
You unscrew it
Very fast.

'Cause a kid'll eat the middle of an Oreo first
And save the chocolate cookie outside for last.





I'm here all week, folks.

Little girls
have pretty curls,
But I like Oreos.
Oreos the best because,
It's the very best cookie, ever was.

Girls are nice,
But Oh what Ice-
ing comes with Oreos.


I don't remember the rest.

I never even really liked the cookies.

There was another one with the same tune that was
Icecream and an oreo cookie,
they forever go together in a classic combination
when the dark delicious cookie meets an icy cold sensation
like the one and only, creamy, crunchy chocolate O-R-E-O

either that, or i dreamed oreo jingles and missed my calling to a life of marketing.
