Mother’s Cookies

I remember that I loved animal cookies as a child. I had the opportunity recently to try Mother’s Cookies Circus Animal cookies. Since I am in the midwest, I had never seen that brand in the stores. Well, good news: they are coming to the midwest.

Although the brand was new to me, the animal cookies date back to 1914 when N.M. (Noah) Wheatley ran a newspaper stand on the corner of San Francisco’s Market and Kearney Streets and decided to purchase the rights to a recipe of some home-baked cookies from one of his customers.

I found a TV commercial from 1980 that featured real company employees singing and dancing while baking Mother’s® Cookies.

1983 – Mother’s® Cookies moved to the big screen and starred opposite Al Pacino in the movie Scarface

Compared to the animal cookies I had when I was a child, these were even better! They had a light coating of icing, so they were sweet and crunchy. My kid's really liked them too. I am excited that they are coming to the Midwest area.

You can see where you can buy them in your area. If they are not in your area, or you just perfer to buy online you can get them at Amazon.com.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Mother’s Cookies and received two bags of cookies and a $20 Amazon gift certificate to facilitate my review.
