yay, kellogg's!

some of you may have heard me lamenting lately about the shutting down of Mother's Cookies (http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2008/10/08/BU6413DQQO.DTL). Now, don't get me wrong - I am not a frequent cookie-eater. I just have many memories of eating those little pink and white sprinkled animal cookies as a child, and was really sad to see them go away forever. I even went out and bought a bag for Aidan's potty-training treats (the halloween colors). Also, it's always sad to witness the demise of a company that has been around for almost 100 years (since 1914)! I couldn't believe that no one had bought out the name, as it is so highly recognized. Today, I read that Kellogg's has bought all of Mother's recipes (http://money.cnn.com/news/newsfeeds/articles/apwire/7c84002e7eac3242c6f1c45795919ccd.htm), and plans to reintroduce their cookies soon. Hallelujah! While I don't know if they will carry Mother's name, I'm still happy to see that the cookies will live on!! Good ol' Kellogg's. Way to go.
