Darryl Strawberry: 1993 Mother's Cookies

I like Darryl Strawberry. And I like cookies. But I have no idea how good or bad Mother's Cookies are. I know Nick V has memories of these cards, which were a west coast thing, but I'd still like to taste test them. 

My favorite cookies are chocolate chip. I prefer plain chocolate chip because why mess with perfection?  But if they are homemade, or Doubletree Hotel brand, I'm ok with having nuts in them. But I'm generally an equal opportunity cookie eater. Anything with mint or raisins can pointedly fuck off. I love black-n-whites, Nilla wafers, ginger snaps, Italian sandwich cookies with jam or chocolate, M&M, etc. etc. etc. Oatlmeal cookies are fine but please use nuts or chocolate chips. Cookies as big as or bigger than my head are a joy to eat. 

Mother's Cookies was founded in Oakland in 1914 and was in operation until 2008. Kellogg's bought them when they were in bankruptcy and brought them back to shelves in 2009. Shame that they couldn't get to the century mark. They are or were connected to Archway Cookies, which I have had. 

What kind of cookies do you like?

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. My favorite cookies are the ones my sister-in-law bakes for me every Christmas. But I'll eat almost any you put in front of me. I was fortunate enough to grow up eating Mother's Cookies. I think their Circus Animals cookies were the ones I consumed the most of... although I haven't bought them in quite some time.
