Le biscuit le plus prisé au monde couronne ses 100 ans en se rendant en Antarctique pour la première fois

- Une livraison exceptionnelle apporte la magie des biscuits OREO aux gens basés sur le septième continent

- ...et la magie de l'Antarctique au monde entier

DEERFIELD, Illinois, 14 décembre 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- OREO n'a jamais introduit le biscuit au chocolat le plus prisé de la planète sur le 7e continent. Du moins, c'était le cas jusqu'à maintenant. Comme événement ultime pour souligner les célébrations du 100e anniversaire, OREO a surpris aujourd'hui les scientifiques basés à la Station Palmer de la péninsule antarctique avec une livraison hors de l'ordinaire -- 5 000 biscuits OREO, permettant à tous ces gens d'ouvrir, de goûter et de tremper un des fameux biscuits.

Le moment était tout désigné. Cette livraison unique s'inscrit dans la foulée du 100e anniversaire du premier pas de l'homme sur le pôle Sud. OREO et l'Antarctique peuvent ainsi profiter des joyeuses festivités organisées par OREO, qui couronnent les célébrations de son centenaire.

Et ça ne s'arrête pas là – la marque a aussi fait un don qui permettra au monde entier de découvrir les merveilles du septième continent au cours des prochaines années. En effet, OREO a offert aux scientifiques et aux chercheurs de la Station Palmer le premier pingouin solaire de l'Antarctique muni d'une caméra, avec l'aide d'Abercrombie & Kent Philanthropie. Les scientifiques espèrent que la caméra permettra aux enfants de tous âges, à la manière de la magie qui s'installe lorsque vous ouvrez un biscuit OREO, de mieux connaître l'Antarctique en regardant la vie des pingouins dans leur habitat naturel. 

« Il s'agit du point d'exclamation qui met un terme à une merveilleuse année de célébrations », mentionne Cindy Chen, directrice marketing, OREO. « En mars, nous nous sommes donné la mission d'aider les gens de partout à retrouver leur cœur d'enfant et je crois qu'à la lumière de cette livraison, nous avons accompli notre mission! Aujourd'hui, les amateurs d'OREO de chaque continent peuvent ouvrir, goûter et tremper un de nos biscuits. » 

En route vers l'Amérique du Sud, les biscuits ont été acheminés par le navire d'exploration 'Le Boreal' sous la surveillance d'Abercrombie & Kent, le leader dans le tourisme d'aventure de luxe. Le Dr James McClintock, un professeur de biologie marine et polaire à la University of Alabama-Birmingham qui a mené des recherches en Antarctique pendant 30 ans, a accepté de servir à titre d'explorateur honorifique de l'Antarctique OREO et de prendre en charge la livraison que lui a confiée OREO Man au nom des « habitants » du continent.

« Le fait de savourer un biscuit OREO et un verre de lait ici dans la station nous rapproche de chez nous », soutient McClintock. « Nous ne pouvons remercier suffisamment OREO de nous avoir permis de nous joindre au reste du monde pour souligner un événement aussi spécial. »

Un biscuit et son passeport

Ce n'est pas la première fois qu'OREO repousse les frontières. Avant de s'attaquer à l'Antarctique, OREO a d'abord conquis le cœur des amateurs des six autres continents. Aujourd'hui, OREO demeure le biscuit le plus vendu et ses produits ont été adaptés pour développer de nouveaux marchés culturels : TRIPLE DOUBLE OREO (É.-U.), une adaptation du OREO x3 de l'Argentine, le OREO crème glacée au thé vert en Chine, le OREO crème glacée à l'orange en Indonésie et le OREO à saveur de dulce de leche en Colombie.  

« Le biscuit OREO est synonyme de délice pour les enfants de tous âges des États-Unis depuis 100 ans », ajoute Chen. « Rien ne nous rend plus heureux que d'apporter la joie, la fraîcheur et la nouveauté aux quatre coins de la planète. »

Des célébrations axées sur une mission

En lien avec la mission festive dont OREO s'est investi, les inconditionnels peuvent se rendre sur sa page Facebook (Facebook.com/OREO) pour publier des photos, des témoignages ou des vidéos dans la galerie des moments OREO pour faire connaître à tous l'enfant qui sommeille en eux. Jusqu'à maintenant, les amateurs d'OREO du monde entier ont partagé plus d'un million de moments cette année.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality.

Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs.

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices.

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
