Circus Animals… the cookies of youth, part II

I feel like a kid in a candy store! Earlier this month, I bemoaned the fact that I can’t get Mother’s Circus Animal Cookies in the lovely state of Maryland… well, I can get them, if I’m willing to pay outrageous prices to have them shipped here.

And then my wonderful hubby came home from the store with these…Cookies

And I had to smile…

Of course, the proof, as they say, is in the pudding. So a taste test ensued. And everyone in the house agreed… the Archway are almost exactly what we all remember and are close enough to be a reasonable substitute (and since they cost less than half of what shipping Mother’s would cost… ummm… can you say, “no brainer”?)

The HT brand didn’t come close. They brought on that “awww man! These aren’t right! Now I really want some of those cookies” reaction.

Meanwhile, I’ll be hoarding the other cookies, thank you.

Ah, nostalgia… ain’t it great!?
