Our long National West Coast nightmare is over!
Kelloggs came through as promised and have reintroduced Mother’s Cookies back into stores in Western States. According to their press release:
Crestfallen cookie lovers once again can enjoy the sweet symbols of so many fond memories. Mother’s(R) cookies, the long-time family favorite, are making a comeback. With the same great taste fans remember, Mother’s(R) cookies made their highly anticipated return to store shelves in the Western region ofÂ the United States starting on May 4 – just in time for the 95th anniversary of Mother’s Day as well as the Mother’s(R) brand.
The Mother’s(R) cookies returning to the Western region of the United States include:
- Chocolate Chip
- Circus Animal(R)
- Double Fudge
- English Tea(R)
- Iced Lemonade
- Iced Oatmeal
- Vanilla Creme
I have given the new cookies a taste taste and I’m very pleased to report that these are the genuine article. They taste exactly the same as the Mother’s Circus Animals we’ve loved over the years. The packaging of the Mother’s brand is basically intact as well, with the addition of the call-out “Your Favorites are Back!” Indeed they are!
Nabisco tried to get onto the “iced animal” bandwagon with their sub-par Nabisco Classics Iced Animal Cookies but failed miserably. Now, there’s no reason at all to purchase the inferior brand! So, get a bag of Circus Animals or whatever your favorite Mother’s Cookie is, and support this brand so they never disappear from store shelves again.
