  5. Oh, Lord, we had a chain of restaurants up here called Mother's that specialized in veal sandwiches .. and they are missed big time! One of the best sandwiches in this town!

    They were Rippin' Good Carosel Cookies in my youth, they still exist, but I do not know if it's still an independent company in a small WI town.

    Did they also make "Mother's Oats?" That was the oatmeal I ate as a kid. I wonder who made the Ginger Snaps that came in waxed paper bags. They make me think of Saturdays when we'd spend the day at my Grandmother's house in Oakland.

    I have a serious sweet tooth, and probably a desperate cookie addiction:lol:

    Those circus cookies look awesome, BUT the iced lemonade ones sound AMAZING. We don't have those cookies in the South. I feel like checking to see if they can be ordered on amazon. Yummy. Frosted oatmeal and frosted raisin also sound great.....and dangerous!!

    The only one I liked out of that bunch was the chocolate chip found in the "assortment package". Never could find them packaged by themselves. I didn't buy them too often because of that, and no one else around here liked the rest of the "assortment" either, so they ended up in the trash.

    Did Mother's Cookies have something to do with baseball cards??

    Last week's NY Times had an article about how they were mismanaged to the point of extinction.
    Let's show how we can not only bake cookies, but cook the books as well.

    They did put out a baseball card set every year. Once a year or so in my job as a sports photographer I'd run into their photographer at a game or two. I never actually saw the card sets though and don't know how exactly they distributed them, I assume in their cookie packaging. The guy always brought cookies though!

    Edit to add: Just did a google search and see that they distributed them for free at games, in the eighties and nineties. They also did sets from the Pacific Coast League in 1952 and 1953 that they put in with cookies.

    Those iced animal cookies are best when you put 'em in your mouth and let the frosting melt (takes a while,) before you chew them at all. You shouldn't eat more than 3,000 of them at a sitting; clogs your arteries.

    My fave was the "Chocolate Chip Assortment". Regular choc chip, choc choc chip, choc chip coconut, etc. When my daughter was about 5, we could put away the better part of a whole bag after dinner. She's 25 now, and eats about 2 cookies a year, I think.

    BTW, Getbent, I have a Mother's Cookies baseball card with Ken Griffey Jr and Sr, both as players for the Mariners. I think it was Jr's sophomore year.

    Those mothers iced circus cookies are DA BOMB!

    And thats coming from a guy that really aint into sweets that much (I'm more of a chip and dip kinda guy).

    I didnt know they Made macaroons. I had a serious addiction when I was 5 to about 14 years of age to Van de Kamps Macaroons, but I couldnt find em locally.

    Hmmmmm? Wonder if I could find em on the internet? If I do, I'm blaming all of you, because you were yakking about em in this thread......................
