I am firmly in the iced animal cookiesl and iced oatmeal camp. They are what I grew up on. No one in my house cooked, these were a staple. I am glad to hear they got rescued.

Another Iced Oatmeal lover. A favorite snack with sliced apples and wedges of Cheddar cheese.


I don't understand why rappers have to hunch over while they stomp around the stage hollering.  It hurts my back to watch them. On the other hand, I've been thinking that perhaps I should start a rap group here at the Old Folks' Home.  Most of us already walk like that.

They also make good icecream sandwiches.

Thanks for being the bearer of good news! I will stop by the grocery store this evening to see if they've found their way here.

Spotted Iced Animals and a few others (oatmeals, I think?) in Foster City, CA!

Hoping, hoping, hoping that they bring back the "mixed bag" with the iced animals, chocolate sandwich cookies, and mini chocolate chip and sugar cookies...

Woo-Hoo! I saw them yesterday.

Some, not all, of the sandwich type of cookies were there. While I did see the larger bags of iced animal cookies, chocolate chip cookies, iced oatmeal, etc, I didn't see the mixed bag, either.

I also didn't see the iced raisin cookies. :sad:

So now I am wondering if they're only bringing back certain kinds/flavors but not all of them.

Still, I guess am happy with what I found. :smile:

Has anyone found Archway cookies? Target used to carry that brand and I will be there on Sunday so I can look for myself. Just curious if that line has been resurrected...

Mother's Cookies has added a new cookie...Jungle Animals iced cookies. They taste the same as the Iced Circus Animals but have green and white icing and the shapes are all jungle-related animals.

I still miss their iced raisin cookies. :sad:

I love the Taffy cookies, but they are hard to find.

How am I supposed to make my Sauerbratten without Archway Gingersnaps?????

Would Trader Joe's ginger snaps work? Their triple ginger snaps are super, but are they acceptable for Sauerbratten?

I'm giving Mother's Cookies the side-eye this morning. 

I recently bought a package of their Taffy sandwich cookies. There was a blurb on the label stating "New Shape but with the same flavor" (or something to that effect).

The new shapes are longer and the cookies tend to come apart a lot more easily.

Then I noticed this morning that the Taffy package with the new cookie shape now contains 2 cookies less than they did before. At the same price. ¬¬

Really, Mother's? Did you think people wouldn't notice?

Greedy corporate rat bastards. A pox on your house!

But sizes are decreasing all the time on practically every product.

It seems that canned foods are the worst.  They started at 16 oz. and now some are 13.5.

At this rate thety'll soon disappear.

Kellogg's screwed up a good thing and lost a lot of customers.

 

I haven't bought Taffy cookies since they changed the recipe to some nasty little piece of disappointment.

 

Good news might be in store though, Kelloggs is selling off their cookie line. 

Hopefully the new owners of Mother's brand cookies will go back to the tried-and-true original recipes.

Those taffy cookies used to be my go-to when I packed a lunch for work many years ago.  I haven't bought commercially produced cookies in a very long time.  Now I either bake my own, buy Schwan's cookie dough or go for the bakery cookies.

i do remember those taffy cookies were pretty good in their day.  Too bad now.
