Mother, come back!

I was shocked and saddened to hear that the maker of our favorite cookies, those pink and white sprinkly Circus Animals went suddenly out of business. I woke up early the next morning, and thinking there would be a run on Mother's cookies, went to the grocery store to "pick up a few things" (cookies). I got other stuff too, honest.

My husband's all time favorite cookie is the Iced Oatmeal, also made by Mother's, so I had to buy some of those too.

While I was in the cookie aisle, a delivery man from another cookie company assured me that someone will buy the Mother's company. I sure hope he is right. I hate to see more people losing their jobs, and us without our favorite cookies.

Do you think we could make our own Circus Animals by putting icing and sprinkles on regular animal crackers? I have a feeling it wouldn't be the same.

I just heard about Mother's this afternoon and my hubby ran to the store and bought the last 4 bags! I am so sad about this.

I hope someone buys them! I'm gonna email Oprah. She can afford it!

Ack this is very bad news. I love those animal cookies and the iced oatmeal and the taffy and oatmeal and those white ones with filling - oh, no.
Somebody save Mother's!!!
