Kraft’s facebook.com/nabiscocookies promotion
The facebook.com/nabiscocookies promotion will last only 24 hours.

The larger umbrella company for Nabisco cookies, though, is Kraft foods company. The conglomerate is owned, ultimately, by Phillip Morris. In total, 88.1 percent of Kraft Foods stock is owned by the tobacco and general holdings company. Over the past five years, the coonglomerate has bought and sold dozens of brands. Most recently, Kraft Foods purchased Cadbury confection company. In the last year, Kraft Foods has gained 8.11 percent in value.
Miss out on facebook.com/nabiscocookies?
Because the facebook.com/nabiscocookies promotion is offering less than a half a million coupons, you may not get one. Plus, using the coupon requires a purchase that could easily add up to $10 or more before you get your “free” cookies. This doesn’t mean you have to miss out, though. You can easily make your own Nabisco-style cookies at home. Rather than using vegetable shortening and sugar as filling in your Oreo-style cookies, you could use buttercream frosting or ice cream. Oreos always sound tasty, but fresh out of the oven, they’re even better. There are entire websites dedicated to re-creating the recipes of commercial products; try this homemade Oreo recipe to get you started.
