    Default Mother's Cookies are Back!

    Well... For aficionados in the West, it could be a big deal. In my case,
    it is. Kellog bought the bankrupt company and revived the best of
    Mother's in original packaging. I've bought Cocadas and Macaroons so
    far. My wife's favorite, Iced Raisin Cookies, are not in the mix yet.
    But Iced Animal Crackers are. I found them at Raley's the other day.
    They are even reclaiming shelf space.
    I know. I know. Most posters don't even know what they are.

    I only heard of them when the company went out of business. I wonder
    if they'll go nationwide and I can get my hands on some of those
    animal crackers.

    YAY Leo!!!! I bought the Iced Animal Cookies a week or so ago at
    Raley's. I was impressed that they kept the recipes and packaging true
    to the original.

    I'm not crazy about -all- of Mother's Cookies, but the ones I like are
    pretty awesome. The IAC's take me back .... Kids love 'em for sure.

    Mother's was an old Oakland, California company with some great cookies.
    They probably didn't think nationwide but Kellog probably will. Mother's
    was/is my favorite. "You don't know what you got 'til it's gone."

    Even though I haven't bought any of that crap
    in 30 years, I'm glad to know it is surviving.

    Every child should know what Mother's cookies are
    like, just as they should know what Crackerjack is.
    Losing Crackerjack would be a much greater tragedy,
    but losing Mother's would also be a significant loss.
    About on par with discovering that Gilligan's Island
    would never be rerun on TV again.

    LOL! I haven't seen a Gilligan's Island rerun in years. Where might they
    be airing? And, pray tell, Ginger or Mary Anne? ;-)

    I gave up on Cracker Jacks eons ago. They cut way back on the peanuts,
    and the prizes were lame.

    This bag of Mother's Iced Circus Animals was an impulse buy -- I have my
    granddaughter with me and I wanted her to have a little something that I
    enjoyed in my youth. At seven grams of waxy fat per six little cookies
    they aren't part of my diet, but a cookie or two sure was worth the
    nostalgia value.

    I do! I do! One of my favorites was also the Iced Raisin Cookies, so I hope
    they do bring them back. The iced animal crackers are good, too.

    Netflix. Great old TV there. We watched an episode of Leave It to
    Beaver on Netflix earlier this evening.
    "Ginger or Mary Anne?" I'd take Barbara Eden or Eva Gabor, both of
    whom were on TV back then, or even Wrangler Jane from F-Troop.
    Just noticed today that my local Sam's Club had Seasons I and II of
    Roswell for $14.9x each. Isabel or Liz? makes "Ginger or Mary Anne?"
    seem quaint and silly.

    The prizes were always lame.

    I enjoyed my childhood in a house painted with lead paint. I wanted
    to share that with my child. Maybe I should have him bite the fishing
    sinkers too, just like I did when I was a boy.

    Food/obesity are the one permissible form of child abuse/neglect.

    Be happy though. The shining white knight (Blake) might come to your
    rescue, telling you that you're such a classy woman that you need not
    pay any mind to my words. He seems to have a grandmother thing going
    on, and will totally back you up in your trans-fats-for-children
    nostalgic romp.

    Oh no! You just aren't old enough. My grandma saved the prizes in a
    jar and we loved to play with them when we visited. Little metal
    animals and such. Everything was metal.

    Now the prizes are stupid tatoos and other paper ick.

    YES! Also the ones with the Spanish peanuts on/in 'em. Or were those
    Archway . . . ?

    You can blame the lawyers for this one.
    Chocking hazard. It's all stickers and crap
    like that nowdays.

    Same for the Botan rice candy in Japan.
    Used to be metal whistles and the like.
