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 …

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).
