Oreo gives cookies and solar penguin cam to Palmer Station to celebrate its 100th Birthday
2012 marks the 100th anniversary of Oreo cookies as well as Scott reaching the South Pole (it was not discovered the same year as Oreos were first made, as this article states, as Amundsen reached it first/discovered the South Pole in December 1911). To celebrate the centennial, Oreo recently delivered 5,000 cookies to those working at Palmer Station on the Antarctic Peninsula. Oreo also donated a solar Penguin Cam, which is the first of its kind in Antarctica.
