Oh no! The end of an era.

Mother's Cookies abruptly shut down

Quote:
(10-0 17:21 PDT -- Mother's Cookies, an Oakland institution for 92 years, has been shuttered, its owner seeking bankruptcy protection for the company. The ending was abrupt: Workers for the company, which shifted its baking and distribution operations to plants in Ohio and Canada in 2006, told workers Friday that operations would cease and cookies would no longer be made as of Monday.

The company cited rising prices for raw materials and fuel, and on Monday filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.

I get home from the gym, sit down with a bowl of spinach, and find get a craving for a Mother Taffy cookie, and this is what I find out. Whew, it's a sad day America. We couldn't get them in PA anyway. But when I lived in CA, they were on the top of my list. And Svenhard's Danish's. Trying to find those online too. I can have one treat a week, and i want it to be a GOOD ONE!
