they’re still on select shelves in chicago. there is no other taste like them. salerno butter cookies and milk or coffee? the best!

Im from Chicago, but living in LA now. Is that the problem? Are they only available in certain parts of the US? If so…can you send me some?! I have been craving the mini ones daily now!

Yep that’s the deal!

We have em here in WI, too.

How could they do that?!!! Why would they want to deprive whole cities of such wonderful buttery tastiness?!

“Mommy?” “What is it dear?” “I wanna a Salerno butter cookie!” I miss those old jingles.

Does anyone have the actual words and medley from the Salerno butter cookies jingle?

ValerieJBaker's avatar

Here it goes….Mommy? What is it dear? I want a Salerno butter cookie. Mommy, I heard you dear, Salerno cookie coming right up; you can lookie, lookie, lookie, but you’ll never find a cookie, like Salerno butter cookie.

Ok, I have been reading your posts & now I’m upset. I’m originally a Chicago girl that moved to timbuktu (North Carolina). I had such a craving for Salerno Butter Cookies & I must have went up & down that cookie/cracker aisle about 6X before I asked not only another customer & employee. They looked at me like I was crazy when I asked for Salerno Butter Cookies. Now I know why…..either Chicago thing or midwestern thing. Now I am sad. : (
I ended up buying some cheap generic version…..yuk!

And I have had the same problem with Jay’s Potato Chips! And pizza…..Pizza Hut is the best we can do around here. I miss Chicago Style Pizza…..real pizza!

I think I’m going to be sad the rest of the day. : (

..slight correction to the jingle:
“you can lookie lookie lookie but you’ll never find a cookie with a better butter batter than Salerno. Salerno butter Cookies.
