The End is Near

Nov 24, 2008 by Jared Smith

The end of the world is near! It was recently announced that Mother’s, the company that makes those pink and white animal cookies, has gone out of business. Call this downturn what you want, but my only indicator of a recession is when I can’t find my favorite foods on store shelves.

I swear, if Obama’s “Change I Can Believe In” doesn’t involve bringing back Circus Animal Cookies, I’m gunna be pissed. If the government can give brazilians of dollars to those bastages on Wall Street, they can certainly give us heaven in the form of 1.2 grams of fat per pink or white delectable, frosting covered, sprinkle laden, leaves a coat of wax on the top of your mouth, can’t stop eating them, leave them in your mouth until they dissolve, it’s cool when two or three stick together, can’t stop sniffing the bag, enough MSG to stay fresh through millenium, is that a bear or a camel, the only cookies that get HARDER in milk, middle school kids make animal love scenes with them (I’ll bet), the Chinese imitation brands have lead paint, eat the sprinkles out of the bottom of the bag, they can’t possible be gone forever cookies.

At least we still have Thin Mints, don’t we? If not, then my will to live has been destroyed.

  2. I’m with you on the Thin Mints. They NEED to remain a staple in our diet around February and March.

  4. Amen brother!!! that is unfortunate that moms across America couldn’t come up with some sort of a bailout to save the Mothers company. i don’t know what i will do without those cookies in the middle of summer…. you know when the frosting melts and you get to lick it off the whole inside of the bag and you can lick your fingers all day and still taste it. mmm. they will be missed:(

  5. At least we still have Zingers. And I resemble the bastage remark.

  6. just the thought of the layer of…whatever..left on my tongue makes me vomit a little in my mouth. There is something about this Smith family and their love of “what’s in that” food items… “iced” animal cookies, chicken in a biskit, and spray cheese from a can. Ugh. Funny story – I was looking for the cheese in a can in Winnipeg one Christmas so Mark could have it, the guy at the srote told me he hadn’t seen cheese in a can in over 20 years. I told him they sold it in every grocery type store in the US, he said that didn’t surprise him! :o)

    I’m surprised you didn’t mention Cap’n Crunch.

  8. I hope you don’t mind my looking at your website, but I am personally devastated that these animal crackers will no longer be hidden in my drawer at work. I know that the end is coming soon.
