Ack, no more pink & white animal cookies! The 92 year old company that makes these abruptly shut down today.

I have a serious addiction to these cookies. Despite being reasonably careful about what I eat, I can mow through a bag of these in a half-day. I even fancy that the special edition colors that come out at Halloween and July 4th have faint added flavoring (mmmm orangeHalloweenanimalcookies).

The Keebler knockoffs are not the same! I must stockpile.
I smell a bailout baking.

Ohhhh! That is so so sad! I love Mother's. And they're local, too- I didn't even know.

These remind me of Vacation Bible School and sin.

Awwwww, that is no good. We once actually survived most of a camping trip on those cookies, and then had to avoid them for several months.

Am I the only one who liked Mothers Cookies other than the Circus Animals? Flaky Flix chocolate-coated wafers? Taffy rectangular sandwich cookies? Maybe that's a reason they're belly-up. I have seriously cut down my cookie consumption lately.

This sucks, I adore those cookies.

I do like the Circus Animals every once in a while, but it's their Iced Oatmeal cookies I will truly miss. Time to buy some cookies!

I just got back from picking my son up from school and we dropped by a Target on the way home. They had one pink & white bag left. Fortunately, I was able to stock up on some bags of the halloween varients. Guess I'll find out if they freeze well.

Same company makes Archway cookies too: I looooove their soft molasses cookies. And the soft lemon frosted ones.

Wahh, I just realized all of the processed/commercial brands of cookies I adore are from Mothers.

Iced oatmeal and the "english tea cookies" are what I loved, though eating the animal cookies still feels like I'm getting away with something- we didn't those too often because our church didn't have them at the coffee hour.

Someone make some into fridge magnets?
Coat them with sealant and dig a magnet n back.

It's the little things that drive things home.
Unexpected home invasion by little things is to be avoided.
Stupid holes!

I bought a bag of these tonight. In memoriam.

Turns out the Tea Cookies are so good because they're chock full of transfats.

Yup- they're the cookies of my childhood alright.
