Phoood Hall of Fame: Motherís Circus Animal Cookies

mothers.jpgEvery since I can remember, my favorite cookies have been Motherís Circus Animal Cookies. To this day, my mouth still waters every time I see a bag of them as I walk down the cookie and cracker aisle. These pink and white-frosted cookies with sprinkles are probably aimed at the 10-and-under market, but I donít care Ė I love them anyway. Iím donít know if Motherís cookies are available in all states. If theyíre not, then I feel sorry for those of you that canít get them. You are really missing out. Keebler makes a similar cookie, and Iím sure other cookie makers do to. But Iíve never tried these others Ė it would be like cheating on a girlfriend. Did you know that you can improve the taste of these cookies by putting them in the freezer? Itís the only way I eat them. For some reason (maybe a scientist could explain in to meÖ), they just taste better when frozen. Try it and I bet youíll agree.

Man I eat like two small bags of these a night at work. My work's vending machine is the only place I can find them around here (Janesville, WI)which ticks me off cause I want some at home.

I can get these at my local publix and they are soooo good. My kids love them but I think its just way to much sugar (so I keep them just for me) but they are really great.

man, when I saw your site I just had to see if you had included mother's animal cookies. It was the first thing I thought of ... these things are sooo good. I've never tried them frozen, though, they don't last that long! I haven't had any in a long time, I'll have to go buy some and put them in the freezer tonight! Thanks for the suggestion.

jim, you sure brought back some mighty good childhood memories when i saw the pix of these cookies. unfortunately i live in israel and we don't have them (and even if we did, they probably aren't kosher so they would be even harder to find.) good job posting the pix though, made my mouth water in memory or the better days...

These are awesome! I recently re-discovered them in the aisle of Kroger. First I bought the Archway brand and they were very good, yesterday I saw that Keebler has them too and they were even better, a little thinner, crisper.

I LOVE these cookies! They're the greatest thing to ever happen to me since the days of Crystal Pepsi. I usually eat them with milk, and I recently tried your idea of freezing them, which, I must say, is DELICIOUS!
