  • Oh Mother!

    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.

          This is so sad... My favorite kind was the Mother's Iced Raisin Cookies. I loved them growing up. Also the circus animal cookies. I used to buy them for my kids, too. You can order some of the cookies from this web site, but my faves have been discontinued already! Wahhhhhh!!!
