BATTLE CREEK – Mother’s cookies are available in stores throughout the greater Kansas City area, a key market for one of the brand’s first expansions outside of the Western United States in 96 years.
“Bringing the Mother’s cookies brand to Kansas City is one of our first brand expansions outside of the western region of the country,” says Jane Ghosh, marketing director for Mother’s cookies, in a press release. “We chose Kansas City because it is an important central gateway from the Western states where the brand traditionally has had a very strong presence.
Mother’s Cookies, a Brief History
Iconic cookies? Yes. Mother’s cookies have amassed a devoted following throughout the years. 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 Taffy sandwich cookies, among others. When the brand ceased production in late 2008, cookie lovers bid farewell to a favorite. In December 2008, Kellogg Company acquired the trademarks and original recipes, and in May 2009, the cookies were back on shelves and cookie lovers were overjoyed.
The Mother’s cookies coming to Kansas City include:
- Chocolate Chip
- Circus Animal
- Coconut Cocadas
- English Tea
- Iced Lemonade
- Iced Oatmeal
