These cookies must be made by the Devil himself (so addicting).

Mother's Circus Animal Cookies are a frosted cookie that has been my favorite since I could remember.  These frosted lil' devils are my Achilles Heel.  I used to eat these (along with Mr. Pibb) when I was in college.  I surprised I never keeled over from excessive sugar abuse.  Oh, these things will be the death of me.  I have tried other brands but nothing comes close to Mother's,  Once you eat one of these little animals you'll be hooked, mark way words.  Whenever I feel nostalgic I pick up a bag (just one mind you).
During the summer time they make a patriotic version (red, white & blue).  Unlike the other knockoff brands, the frosting on these cookies will hold up.
These cookies must be made by the Devil himself (so addicting).

Uggggh, I can't believe you just reviewed this.  In fact, I can't believe any of the stuff that you've been reviewing tonight, but these animal cookies take the cake!  Darn it, Captain, now I need to buy a bag! ;P

Those cookies are something else. My grandfather used to buy them and I would always sneak into his cookie jar and swipe a handful.

Even if these cookies aren't the best tasting cookies off the shelf, they hold a place in my heart and stomach. I rate them a 5 for cuteness and for nostalgia. I remember these when I was growing up and my dad would tuck them into my lunch box along with a jam sandwich on Wonderbread.

Yum yum! Nothing better than these cookies with a cold glass of milk!

About this food


Mother's Cookies
is a brand that originally had a bakery based in Oakland, California that operated from 1914 to 2008.[1][2] A sister company, Archway Cookies of Battle Creek, Michigan, was founded in 1936. Both Mother's Cookies and Archway declared bankruptcy in 2008.[3] At its height, the company distributed cookies throughout the United States, and was one of the leading cookie makers in the country.[4] The Kellogg Company acquired the Mother's Cookies trademark and recipes in December 2008 and brought the brand back to West Coast grocery store shelves on May 14, 2009.[5][6]

Mother's is known for pink and white iced "Circus Animal Cookies".  On holidays (Christmas and Fourth of July) Mother's makes colored variations of the animal cookies (red & green or red, white & blue).
