Remember these cookies?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hi all!

I just posted this topic in the recipe request forum and thought I should post it here too.

I'm in my early 40's. Remember the animal cracker cookies that Nabisco made in the horizontal circus theme box with the string carry handle? When I was a kid, Nabisco also made 3 cookies in the same size box as the animal crackere but the box was vertical. The 3 flavors came in boxes that were the same design but different colors. There was the lemon/lime cookies in a lime green and white box, the chocolate cookies were in a brown and white box and the chocolate chipe were in a red and white box. The boxes had the cookie on it with whiskers and triangle ears (like a cats face). The cookies were flat and about 1 to 1 1/2" rounds. The lemon/lime was a pale yellow, the chocolate were dark (brown/black) and the chocolate chips were light brown (like light brown sugar) and the chips looked like it was swirled in.

To me, these were the BEST cookies in the world! Does anyone remember them? I haven't contacted Nabisco yet. I NEED these recipes! Anyone have one; maybe from grandma or an aunt? TIA!

I found something on Google Images. Is this the box for the chocolate ones?

I found it on the Cookie Madness blog where she tries to re-create the recipe:

It's funny, I'm feeling all meloncholy just seeing the box. I knew that they were called snaps. I wonder why I forgot that piece of info when I posted.

Antonia, I know right?

Labella, If I didn't, you guys probably would have figured it out anyway. Those cookies go way back.

Berla weren't they just scrumptious. I loved them all but those chocolate chips, OH MY GOODNESS!!! Although now my favorite chocolate chip cookie is chips ahoy (the original hard ones in the blue package), if Nabisco brings the snaps back or I find the recipe chips ahoy can forget it.

Ok ladies, why am I getting misty eyed all over again reading the new responses. It's good to know that I'm not the only one who remembers. I'm in hot pursuit now girls. Wish me luck; I'm going in!
