SALT LAKE CITY — Flash mob dancers strutted their stuff — and Double Stuf — at Gallivan Plaza in honor of Oreo cookies' 100th birthday on Tuesday.

Local, sweet-toothed consumers also enjoyed Oreo-themed games and plenty of the celebrated cookie at the event.

Oreos originated in 1912 in a New York City Nabisco factory.
