Mother's Cookies Circus Animals to Return

Like Oreos, Mother's Circus Animal cookies are a staple of my childhood and of my parenting years. So sad to read in early October that Mother's Cookies closed abruptly and filed for bankruptcy. Although it's been years years since I bought these cookies, they were always there on the shelf just in case.
Anyways, Bonnie spotted some bags at a Grocery Outlet (she calls it "the used foods store") and bought some for me. Nom nom yum!

Good news for Mother's cookies fans: in early December Kellogg announced that they have acquired the trademark and recipes from Mother's Cookies. We could be seeing these little pinks and whites back on the shelves later this year. Yay!
Check your used food store in the meantime, or get this t-shirt to let the world know about your cookie love.

C is for cookie, that's good enough for me,
Oh, cookie, cookie, cookie starts with C!

That's not a coincidence!
