Kellogg’s Brings Mother’s Cookies Back To Life

May 5th, 2009 · 181 Comments

By a Staff Reporter

mothers cookiesBATTLE CREEKΒ  – Just as Kellogg’s brought back Hydrox, it has now brought back the Mother’s Cookies brand.

With the same taste , Mother’s cookies made their highly anticipated return to store shelves in the Western region of the United States starting on May 4 – just in time for the 95th anniversary of Mother’s Day as well as the Mother’s brand.

Since 1914, Mother’s cookies have been delighting generations with favorites like the pink and white sprinkled Circus Animal cookies and the rich, creme-filled Taffysandwich cookies. When the iconic brand ceased production in late 2008, cookie lovers lost not only a delicious snack, but a closely held family tradition. In December 2008, Kellogg Company acquired the trademarks and original recipes, ensuring that the cookies will continue.

“We’re thrilled to bring back a classic, beloved brand that calls to mind such strong feelings of nostalgia and happy childhood memories that parents want to pass down to their children,” said Doug VanDeVelde, senior vice president, marketing and innovation, U.S. snacks, Kellogg Company, in a press release to BrandlandUSA.

The Mother’s cookies returning to the Western region of the United States include:

  • Chocolate Chip
  • Circus Animal
  • Cocadas
  • Double Fudge
  • English Tea
  • Iced Lemonade
  • Iced Oatmeal
  • Macaroons
  • Oatmeal
  • Taffy
  • Vanilla Creme

Mother’s Milestones

Here are some memorable Mother’s cookies milestones from the last 95 years:

1914 – N.M. (Noah) Wheatley runs a newspaper stand on the corner of San Francisco’s Market and Kearney Streets and decides to purchase the rights to a recipe of some home-baked cookies from one of his customers.

Circa 1915 – Wheatley trades in his corner stand and relocates to a small, one-person operation on 12th Avenue in Oakland, Calif. where he bakes about 2,000 cookies each day and night. His cookies sold for $1 a box, and his vanilla cookies were an overnight hit.

Circa 1920 – With help from a young woman named Leopoldine, the bakery grows and a romance begins. Noah and Leopoldine marry and together run the company until their son, Floyd Wheatley, is old enough to take over.

1922 – The bakery needs more space and moves to 18th Street, forcing the Wheatleys to sell their home and even their piano to pay for the move.

1949 – Success is sweet, and the bakery moves to 810 81st Avenue in Oakland, Calif. and grows to employ more than 750 people across several Western states.

1952 – Mother’s cookies launches a unique promotion involving baseball player cards inserted in packages of cookies and continues to give them away as promotions at games until 1998.

1983 – Mother’s cookies moves to the big screen in the movie Scarface.

2002 – Mother’s cookies bakes more than 17 million cookies a day to keep up with demand.

2006 – Tough times force the company to close its operation in Oakland, Calif. and shift production to plants in Canada and Ohio.

2008 – Mother’s cookies closes its doors

2009 – Mother’s cookies return and fans everywhere rejoice.

    I’m excited!

    When the Hydrox cookies came back, it was a fun retro delight!

  • 2 Andy // May 7, 2009 at 6:49 pm

    Thank You “Kellogg’s” For bringing back an American Tradition. I hope the recipes are the same as I tried Nabisco’s attempt at “Mothers Cookies”(Their versions Of pink and white iced and Iced Oatmeal” wasn’t even near the great taste “Mothers” cookies had. I will certainly continue to buy “Mothers cookies” for now on, next to Oreo or Hydrox, the best store bought cookie out there.

    where are the iced rasins?

  • 4 Luke // Jun 22, 2009 at 8:43 pm

    I have enjoyed Mother’s Cookies for as long as I can remember, my favorite the “Double Fudge” has no competion anywhere, ever! It was a dark day when Mother’s closed their doors… I chased down every bag of “Double Fudge” I could find (which didn’t amount to many) and savored every last one. I’ve tried every brand but no one can match Mother’s.
    Today, my sweetheart phoned me with an unbelievable discovery, Mother’s were back in the store! Miracles do exist!
    Thanks Kellogs for bringing back the joy of Mothers!

  • 11 Garland Pollard // Sep 8, 2009 at 2:58 pm

    Seems like alot of you all miss the iced raisins. I don’t know what to do about it but Kellogg’s is definitely responsive to market, as it brought the cookie brand back in the first place.

It’s apart of my “childhood” past that I still remember and I am now 42yrs old. That should tell you something about this cookie. You should have NEVER stopped making them πŸ™ Please even if for a limited time only, BRING THEM BACK, so my girls can taste a piece of my childhood as they do now when I have on “The Christmas Story” all day long on Christmas Day. A favorite movie of mine at Christmas time. Here’s an idea, bring the Iced Oatmeal Raisin cookies back just for the Christmas Holiday!!!!!

  • 108 Dan Eads // Apr 6, 2012 at 7:49 pm

  • 109 Catherine Collins // Apr 7, 2012 at 2:43 pm

    I loved Mother’s cookies when I was a little girl, and when I had children they loved them also. I am so happy to see the cookies in the store, but where is the iced raisin cookie? I just can’t believe that the iced raisin cookie was the best selling cookie of the Mother’s brand. Please bring back the iced raisin cookie, even if it is for a limited time only. Thanks

  • 110 Catherine Collins // Apr 7, 2012 at 2:57 pm

    I just love Mother’s cookies.

  • 111 D's Mom // May 26, 2012 at 6:49 pm

    Another vote for iced raisin, please!! Email me when they come out and I will immediately stock up!! (but I don’t remember them having stripes.. just a rectangle raisin shortbread with a very unique taste and then dipped in a thin coating of clear white icing. Raisins make the cookie have a perfect chewy-but-crunchy texture. Oh wish I was crunching one right now!

  • 112 Jennifer // May 28, 2012 at 9:58 am

    I so miss the Iced Raisin Cookie!!! Please bring it back.

  • 113 Alana // May 31, 2012 at 9:08 pm

    You need to bring back the Iced Raisin Cookies!! My son and husband loved them. Sorry to see they aren’t on the grocery shelf anywhere,. Let us know when this might happen so we won’t miss out when you do bring them back, because I am sure you will not have enough to go around!!

  • 114 Cathy Powers // Jun 11, 2012 at 9:55 am

  • 116 Andrea // Jul 3, 2012 at 11:05 am

    My mother, who salved her wounds with Mother’s Iced Raisin cookies after a bitter divorce, has now reached her twilight years. Before she bids a fond farewell to this world, her last wish is to savor a bag or two of Mother’s Iced Raisin cookies. It is obvious from the plethora of comments that people across these United States are pleading for the return of Mother’s Iced Raisin cookies. Why does Mother continue to turn her back on her longstanding, loyal customers as if they’re ugly stepchildren? Is it, as Hillary Clinton professes, a vast right-wing conspiracy? Could you at least inform us, your public, as to the reason Mother’s Iced Raisin cookies no longer grace the shelves of our grocery stores? Or for the sake of my mother, Mother, could you just whip up a vat or two for you many fans? (dictated by my 70-year-old mother!)

  • 117 Mary Elizabeth // Jul 27, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    Where are the Iced Raisin Cookies? Please tell us why they are not being reproduced. Friends and Family from out of state constantly asked me to ship the Iced Raisins to their home because Mother’s Cookies were not available in their area. Please, please, please – My life will be easier if the Iced Raisin Cookies are available again!

    […] So news was all over this morning about Hostess Brands is closing.Β  Hostess has asked a federal bankruptcy judge for permission to close it’s operations.Β Β  The decision comes after one of the company’s biggest unions went on strike to protest a labor contract.Β Β  It’s hard to imagine no Twinkies and Wonder Bread, but there are a ton of copycat recipes for Hostess products floating around.Β Β  I’d also place a bet that someone will buy up at least some of the brand products, much like what happened with Mother’s Cookies and our beloved pink and white Circus Animal Cookies.
