Funky Food Friday: Almost Home Cookies

Oh man, saw these Almost Home packaged chocolate-chip cookies on Hillary's I'm Remembering and about fell over.

I am not a big cookie fan (I know! Sacrilege! Not a big pizza person either!), but Almost Home, with their sampler-designed bag, totally stuck in my head.

They were a Nabisco product, and from the commercial below I guess they weren't those big soft cookies, but they look like they were.

(Also, how awesome is this 1987 commercial? And SNOOPY'S GETTING MARRIED? What what what?)

Do you remember these cookies? Or the name of the soft packaged cookies that is totally escaping me now, but that came in blue and red packages?

"Pudding Pops" got a mention on the Retroist website! http://www.retroist.com/2011/06/09/more-retro-writings/

Just got my copy yesterday and am already 1/2 way through it. Thanks for the memories. I'm embarrassed to say how much I remember. . .

I remember Chip-A-Roos were big, soft chocolate chip cookies. I wish they still made them.

I loved Keebler Chocolate Fudge sandwich cookies. Why oh why did they stop making them :(

I think I remember "Almost Home" cookies. They were basically Chips Ahoys with slightly bigger chips...

I still have the Snoopy's Getting Married animated special on VHS from childhood!

I'm extremely late to this party, but could you be thinking of "Grandma's" cookies, I can only remember those coming in 2 packs... or maybe Archway cookies? I miss them so much, the only gingersnappy cookies I would eat as a child. : ) Dawn
