Mother’s Cookies, an institution of American childhood, shuttered its doors abrubtly, filing for bankruptcy protection. The company, in business since 1914, has ceased production of its products, including the iconic Original Circus Animal Cookies.
How sad is that!?!
No more Frosted Circus Animals … not even the extra yummy yellow ones at Easter.
The end of an era.
More on this topic later.
