OREO Built a Post-Apocalypse Vault to Protect OREO Cookies in Case Asteroid Hits Earth

On November 2, Asteroid 2018VP1 will fly by Earth, just a day before the elections in the US. And even though it has virtually no chance of hitting our planet (1 in 240), the folks from Oreo wanted to make sure we still get to eat their wonderful cookies if an apocalyptic event ever occurs. That’s why they had a vault built especially for the occasion. If you’re worried about the asteroid ending civilization, don’t be, the thing is roughtly the size of a refrigirator and will likely desintegrate in the atmosphere before hitting the ground.

“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.”

In case of an apocalypse, head over to these coordinates: ma. This is just down the road after the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, halfway between mainland Norway and the North Pole.
