Oreo Is Releasing The First-ever Left-handed Pack Of Oreo Cookies

If you happen to be part of the 10 percent of the population that’s left-handed, you know you’re pretty unique. There are, of course, disadvantages to living in a world made for the 90 percent of the population that’s right-handed. But there are also some pretty awesome advantages.

Science has proven that lefties are pretty darn exceptional. For instance, they are more likely to be good at sports and also known to be better problem solvers. Not only that, but left-handed people are also in a select group of notable names. Famous lefties include Albert Einstein, President Barack Obama, Bill Gates and Neil Armstrong.

There are also some creative products made especially for lefties and, now, in honor of International Lefthanders Day on Monday, Aug. 13, even Oreo is spreading some love for their left-handed fans.


Left-handed Oreo fans have likely noticed that the package always opens on the left, which is more convenient for right-handers. Now, however, lefties can sign up to receive a limited-edition Oreo pack that opens on the right instead!

All you have to do for your chance to score one for $3 (which is actually just the shipping cost) is visit Oreo’s website and fill out the form.

Lefties have not had it easy. So this International Left-Handers Day, we created a limited-edition Left-Handed OREO cookie package. Sign up so you can twist, lick, and dunk the left way at lefthandedoreo.com.

Know a lefty who would love a pack of left-handed Oreos? You can send them to someone you know as a surprise gift! Just put their address on the form instead of yours and they’ll get a sweet surprise in about eight weeks.

But you’ll need to order them before they disappear on Aug. 30. Though you should probably just place your order now because the offer is only available while supplies last.
