Oh, pre-packaged cookies, you beautiful discs of sugar, carbs, and preservatives. We don't deserve you. You're too good for this world; yet, here you've been, lining grocery store aisles since the early 20th century, ready to comfort us, soothe us, and spike our blood sugar.

Certainly, cookie packaging and boxes have changed over the course of the last century. Beautiful photos of vintage Mallomar packaging prove it, as does the visual evolution of Oreo history. Like cereal boxes and chip bags, before-and-after pictures of cookie boxes take us on a historical journey. In their case, it's a very sweet - and sometimes vegan (looking at you, Oreos) - ride.
