Oreo Proves You Don't Need To Spend Millions To Win Super Bowl

A March 7, 2012 photo shows a plate of Oreo cookies in Washington, DC. Technically they're 'chocolate sandwich cookies,' a baked concoction of sugar, vitamin-enriched flour, canola oil, high-fructose corn syrup and, at the bottom of the list of ingredients, chocolate. But the Oreo cookie -- first baked in New York city 100 years ago on March 6, 2012 -- is much more than that. It's an American icon, the best-selling cookie in the nation, with plenty of fans around the world to boot. AFP PHOTO/Ma | MANDEL NGAN via Getty Images

During last year's Super Bowl, Oreo totally stole the show with a tweet that went viral just after the Superdome lost power. This year, Oreo's social media team nailed it once again. (These guys seriously deserve a raise.)
