Coming in hot with strange news.
So, there’s a vault in Norway called the Svaldbard Global Seed Vault. It’s been there since 2008. Its purpose is to be one of the last lines of defense against the annihilation of plant life here on Earth.
This fancy vault is built into the side of a mountain, holding over a million seed samples.
If you make your way down the road from the seed vault, you’ll find the Global Oreo Vault standing.
The Oreo vault is smaller but real. he cookie brand says this Oreo-focused facility holds just “the Oreo recipe and a large stockpile of cookies.”
The coordinates for one of the world’s best-selling cookies is 78° 08’ 58.1” N, 16° 01’ 59.7” E.

“As an added precaution, the Oreo packs are wrapped in mylar, which can withstand temperatures from -80 degrees to 300 degrees Fahrenheit and is impervious to chemical reactions, moisture and air, keeping the cookies fresh and protected for years to come,” Oreo announced.
Will there be milk in the Global Oreo Vault for dipping?
