The Return of Mother’s
Back in October, I posted about Mother’s Cookies going away after the company closed it’s doors. There was much sadness [and much purchasing of the remaining stock of Circus Animal Cookies] and I feared it would be the last time I would ever taste those frosted little treats.
Is That You, Mother’s?
Then in March, while at the grocery store, I saw something that got me excited…
*sniff… sniff* can it be? or is it an impostor?
I had to buy them, wondering if Nabsico was going to revive an old favorite. Taking them home, ripping open the bag and shoving several cookies in my mouth, I began to chew…
*** BLECH ***
WTF, Nabisco?? Trying to pull a fast one on us Mother’s lovers. Fuckers. I quickly expelled any remaining cookies I was chewing. [I’ll spare you the photo of the train wreck] The bag is now sitting the cupboard, still very full of bland and tasteless cookies. Once again, I thought my beloved Circus Animal cookies were gone forever, until two days ago….
The Real Deal
I was having an extra shitty day, thanks in large part to many bad things going on in a short period of time. My wife sent me to the store to pick up a few things. Turning the corner towards the checkstands, I looked over and saw something very familiar….
Oh my precious cookies, how I’ve missed you…
OMG… there they were. In all of their pink and white colored glory. Thanks to the Kellogg’s Corporation and Keebler [who is owned by Kellogg’s], they purchased the rights to the original recipes of all the Mother’s brands and brought them back on Mother’s Day [sly marketing people] to the delight of Mother’s Lovers everywhere.
Opening the bag as fast as I can, I immediately
crammed placed several cookies into my mouth for consumption.
*** YUUUUMMMMM ***
They are exactly as I remember them. So good. No more rationing or placing the remaining stash into locked and hidden areas.
So if you are a fan, rejoice and go spend all of your remaining cash to purchase your favorite type of Mother’s Cookies. And to help you out, they’ve even provided a 55-cent off coupon to help get you started back into the savory goodness known as Mother’s.

The last ones I purchased were “Spring” versions… where the white animals were frosted yellow. They look peed on, which made them a little difficult to eat. 🙂
I’ve never been a fan of the iced ones (though, perhaps I’ve only had crappy Nabiso-type animal crackers) but we get cinnamon coated ones at work once in a great while. Those are a winner.
I hadn’t even noticed they went away…
I loved the taffy cookies growing up but haven’t had them in a while – I’ll have to look for them next time I venture out
I am not a huge cookie person, but I seriously love those things. Haven’t had them in years!! Yum!
dave2 – Yellow is a spring color, but maybe not for cookies.
delmer – I don’t know if I’ve had the cinnamon ones before. I know I like the iced oatmeal and the iced lemon cookies. I may have to find those in the stores here.
alex – Yeah, they were gone and back in a matter of months.
sybil law – They are good, aren’t they. Tasty and easy to keep eating.
kristi – Now I know what to bring for the next party at your house. 😉
Ok so now my mouth is watering. Must go get cookies immediately.
I couldn’t help but giggle every time I read “Mother’s lovers”.
Does your Mother’s Lovers reference have anything to do with the SNL skit? LOL! You are too clever 😉
I hope these don’t set back your fitness plans (like cookies do for me!)… when are we going to hear about those again? 🙂
kevin – Your stores should have them there.
brandon – Yes, I giggled a bit too when I proofread this post.
kilax – I don’t think I’m familiar with that SNL skit. Just me being clever. 🙂
As for the fitness plan, there will be an update here soon. It’s been too long. And so far, the cookies haven’t set anything back yet.
I LOVE circus animal cookies! And I haven’t had them in ages – now that I know they were just saved from an early death, I may need to buy some tonight!
jenny – They are so good. Must buy another bag here for the holiday weekend.
