I received a lot of sympathetic responses to my Mother's Cookies demise post. And one of my photos was used on Serious Eats! (how cool is that?!)
On the Serious Eats post and from commentator Jess, I discovered there is a cool new shirt honoring my childhood (and adulthood!) favorite packaged cookie.
This shirt, by Cloth Moth has twelve of Circus Animals and the poetic words:
The shirt is only $25 and will have to tide us Mother's Cookies lovers over until perhaps someone rescues the company from bankruptcy...Hint, Hint to those dolling out the $700 billion dollar bailout package!
Here's the link for ordering the shirt!
By the way, I discovered Mother's Cookies might be a West Coast thing...as my Los Angeles ex-pat friend Jennie in Kentucky discovered. She says, "I was going on and on about Mother's at work and they just looked at me." Well, if you don't know Mother's cookies, imagine THAT cookie. Yes, THAT cookie you had at every Brownie or Cub Scout meeting, during snack time at pre-school, at the PTA meeting, Tupperwear party, and perhaps the church social. Or, it's 2 am and you need a sugar fix...and you go to the dorm vending machine and there is a little packet of goodness just wanting to say "Hi and good luck on that exam." Believe me, Mother's is THAT cookie.
