Oh, Happiness! Mother’s Cookies are Back!

Last winter I wrote with much sadness about the demise of Mother’s cookies. It was sometime in March that I finally cracked my last package ever of Mother’s Iced Oatmeal cookies–a bittersweet event indeed. Imagine my delight when Tracie came back from the grocery store the other day bearing two packages of Mother’s cookies!

Close examination of the bag revealed a mention of Kellogg’s, so I did a little googling and found the official announcement of Kellog’s acquisition of Mother’s trademarks and recipes.

Notice the little emblems that proudly proclaim “Your Favorites Are Back!” Kellogg’s knows their stuff when it comes to marketing, no doubt.

Go ahead, try to summarize yourself in a sentence or two.


  1. It was indeed a sad day when I found out that Mother’s iced animal cookies were no longer available. The creamy richness of the fractionated palm kernel oil-based coating was something to be savored. Nice to see that is one of the recipes they’re bringing back

  2. Yeah, the fat content of some Mother’s cookies puts them in the guilty-pleasure category these days. The Oatmeal and Iced Oatmeal aren’t that bad, though. OTOH if cookies are a big enough part of ones diet that their fat content is a concern, one has bigger issues with which to come to terms.
