My favorite store bought cookies are...dead.

I went to the store yesterday, and the shelves that held Mother's Circus Animal Cookies looked like locusts had come through. There was not even a single bag left.

I called Wayne, and he stopped by another store on his way home and bought SIX bags of the Halloween Circus Animal Cookies, which aren't quite as good as the pink and white version, but it will do.

Today I checked eBay just for the heck of it, and there are a lot of Mother's Circus Animal Cookies listed.
Check it out.

There's a bag of the Halloween cookies going for $20/bag. I think we might sell our unopened 5 bags on eBay and make some money!! The profits could pay for a date night!

It makes me, sad, though that the pink and white cookies, which I always thought were so pretty, are going to be non-existent. There are cheap imitations, but they just aren't the same.

You're kidding, right? Isn't that one of the most popular cookies for kids ever? They have the best frosting and sprinkles. I'm sad.

BTW-- I LOVE squash soup. I'm sorry I missed it.

Our grocery store had signs up saying that Mother's cookies had gone out of business. I'm googling this right now. Are Franz cheap imititations? Who will fill the frosted cookie void????
