Today (December 4) is National Cookie Day. It's one of those holidays that gives us a legitimate excuse to eat several of America's favorite snacks. Here's a list of the most popular cookies to help get you started on your Cookie Day indulgence.

According to WRCH these are the top selling cookies in the US.

  1. Nabisco Oreo
  2. Nabisco Chips Ahoy!
  3. Nabisco Oreo Double Stuff
  4. Pepperidge Farm Milano
  5. Private Label Chocolate Chip
  6. Little Debbie Nutty Bar
  7. Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream
  8. Nabisco Chips Ahoy Chewy
  9. Nabisco Vanilla Wafers
  10. Private Label Sandwich Cookies

The number one seller and also my favorite store bought cookie, Oreo, has been around since 1912. Number two, Chips Ahoy! didn't show up on store shelves until 1963.

Both Pepperidge Farm and Little Debbie didn't start making cookies until the 1950s and 1960s, so not only is Oreo the top seller, but it's also the cookie with the most years being enjoyed by cookie lovers.
