The Origin of Mother’s® Cookies
It all started in 1914 at a newspaper stand in Oakland, California. Newspaper vendor N.M. Wheatley purchased the rights to some unusually delicious home-baked cookies from a customer. Interestingly, N.M. named the cookies Mother’s in honor of the brand-new holiday, Mother’s Day! The cookies soon they became a hit. Within a year, he sold the newspaper stand and began baking two thousand cookies a day in a small bakeshop. Of course, these are the iconic Circus Animal Cookies we know and love!
The iconic shapes inspire the imagination and creativity to help turn snack time into a three-ring circus.Frosted Animal Circus Cookies
Long ago in cookie-land, animals didn’t stray too far from the herd. Camels stuck with camels, lions with lions, and unicorns with unicorns. Day after day, they had the same routine. One morning a volcano erupted shooting sprinkles out into the sky and sending rivers of frosting flowing through the lands. By the next morning, every creature under the sun was full of polka-dots and bright. The animals thought, “well this is weird.” But, it was also pretty sweet and delicious. The frosted animals became instant friends. From that day on, cookie-land became infinitely more fun. Since then, kids have been delighting in Mother’s Cookies ever since.
Today, there are two types of Mother’s Frosted Animal Cookies, each with unique shapes and
personalities to create plenty of imagination in every bite.
- Original Circus Animal® Cookies are classic shortbread animal shaped cookies that are fully frosted in the iconic pink and white frosting, topped with rainbow sprinkles.
- Mythical Creature® Cookies are shortbread fairytale shaped cookies that are fully frosted in lavender and white frosting, topped with silver sprinkles.
