Hearing about the closing of the Mother’s Cake & Cookie Co. in California just a few weeks ago was devastating to fans of their excellent and unique cookies. News that their beloved Circus Animal Cookies wouldn’t be on shelves for much longer actually caused something of a rush on them in some markets. Fortunately, Kellogg’s has just purchased the Mother’s recipes and trademark to their cookie line, and plans to reintroduce their most popular cookies asap.
I found some Circus Animal Cookies at Target this weekend, still bearing the marks of the original Mother’s brand. Hopefully, there won’t be too much of a gap in availability after Kellogg’s takes over production.
