Another day, another strange thing that starts trending on social media. This time, it’s a limited edition Oreo-Spam burger at select McDonalds China locations. Fortunately (or unfortunately), this salty and sweet concoction will be limited to just 400,000 sandwiches when it becomes available starting tomorrow, December 21. Spam was first introduced by Hormel on July 5, 1937 and was originally intended to increase the sale of pork shoulder, which was not a very popular cut at the time.

Now that you know how Spam originated, the “Oreo Biscuit” was first developed and produced by the National Biscuit Company (Nabisco) in 1912 at its Chelsea, New York City factory in the present-day Chelsea Market complex. The name Oreo was officially trademarked on March 14, 1912 and launched as an imitation of the Hydrox cookie manufactured by Sunshine company, which was introduced in 1908. As for how this new burger tastes, we’ll have to just wait and see.
