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.

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...

One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
