because apparently the rest of the world ONLY LOVES THE CIRCUS ANIMALS

So. Yesterday I was all, I MISS THE MOTHER'S SUGAR COOKIES SOOOOO MUCH, and you guys were all ARE YOU SAYING THAT THE CIRCUS ANIMAL COOKIES ARE GONE GONE GONE??? And as I read your adorable comments (and emails! hee!), I was all, BUT WHAT ABOUT THE SUGAR COOKIES??????

Anyway. Because THE REST OF THE WORLD listens to y'all. And because I'm just that nice of a person, I have a couple of gifts for you.

1.) Look here to find some of those darn pink and white frosted jerknecks THAT ARE THE ONLY THING THAT THE ENTIRE WORLD WIDE WEB IS MISSING FROM THE COOKIE PARADE BAG, LIKE THERE WEREN'T THREE OTHER WELL-DESERVING COOKIE TYPES IN THERE. You have to be willing to pay through the nose, like OVER TEN DOLLARS A BAG, but hey, if the fancy really strikes you...

and
2.) Yeah. So the headline is Kellogg's Saves Mother's Cookies - but really it should be "Kellogg's Certainly Doesn't Actually SAVE An Entire Company, It Just Saves The Cookies That The Rest of the World -NOT WHIMSY- Loves And While We're At It Whimsy Can Just Take A Hike With Her Beloved Sugar Cookies Cuz We're Sure Not Going To Be Making Them For Her". Yeah, I guess that second headline is a little on the long side. Bottom line? Kellogg's is going to be making your circus animal cookies. As well as a few more. Just NOT MY SUGARS.

Enjoy your cookies.
I'm not bitter.




Edited to add...
Okay, okay. I need a freaking FACT CHECKER here at The Creamery, because upon further detailed investigation (read: I entered a new string of words into Google: Kellogg's mother's cookies)-- I found out that Kellogg's is actually going to "reintroduce" -whatever that means- a whole bunch of Mother's cookies to the West Coast (so sorry, REST OF THE COUNTRY - you're going to have to have your West Coast blogging buddies ship them to you? Or something??? I think you should call your local Kellogg's representative to comment about the injustice, and while you're at it ASK FOR THE SUGAR COOKIES) by June 2009, including what they are calling "Mother's Parade Animal cookies" - which, I have my doubts that they are talking about my beloved mixture, but a girl can HOPE. Here's what they told Serious Eats in January:

Kellogg Company plans on reintroducing many of Mother's Cookies back into stores on the West coast by June, 2009. While we may not have all varieties of Mother's Cookies available at that time, we are working on some of your favorites like Mother's circus Animals, Mother's Iced Oatmeal cookies, Mother's Parade Animal cookies, Mother's Chocolate Chip, Mother's Coconut Cocadas, Mother's Macaroons, Mother's Taffy Sandwich cookies, Mother's English Tea cookies, Mother's Double Fudge Sandwich cookies, Mother's Vanilla Creme Sandwich cookies, and Mother's Iced Lemon cookies.

So, there you go. The latest and greatest of Mother's Cookies information, right here at The Creamery. Don't ever tell me that I didn't do anything for you.

am i the only one who had no idea what these mother's cookies even are?? are the animal crackers the regular ones in the box with the little elastic strap? why did i grow up under a rock??

Thank you Investigative Reporter Whimsy. I got sidetracked on our trip to the store and forgot to check the cookie aisle! Whew, now I'll just have to wait until the circus animals come marching back. I'll admit, I've never given the sugar cookies a fair and unbiased bite. How can one resist the other cookies with the chocolate chips, sprinkles and/or frosting?!? I couldn't possibly be distracted by a mere sugar cookie.

Oh, HA HA HA HA!! Too funny. Sorry.

Taffy Sandwich cookies? What? I am thinking sugar cookies would be better...

I know where you all can get some lovely pink and white circus cookies! Granted they are imitation circus cookies but non the less they still might be worth trying. I have seen them at the bread store "Franz" There is a store on 164th in lynnwood just past walmart. Also there is another store in downtown Everett.
