What was the name of this now defunct cookie?

Asked by Kingkamandi (149points) April 21st, 2009

When I was a kid growing up in the 1970s there was a chocolate cookie that my whole family absolutely loved but none of us can remember the name of it.

Here is what I remember: first off, according to my mother they only sold the cookies in fall, winter and spring since in summer the cookies melted all over the place. The cookies were about two inches long, a half an inch across and about a third of an inch thick. They seemed to be covered in real chocolate, not that waxy chocolate we all know from modern “chocolate” cookies. The inside was crunchy, but sort of crumbly. The chocolate exterior was smooth and not dusted with chips or anything like Flaky Flix. The cookies came lined up about twenty to a box. The box was a tray with a partially clear cellophane wrapping. I believe the rest of the wrapper was orange and brown.

It is not Twix, it is not Flakey Flix.

Many people, my family included, kept them in the freezer for extra deliciousness.

Are you sure it wasn’t a giant box of Kit Kats?

Are you an American? I think that’s the first question because my instinct was to answer to British cookies that I doubt were just common in the states in the 1970’s.

They were not malomars, they were not Kit Kats and we used to buy them in Southern California at pretty much any old supermarket.

We have a winner: Ideal Cookies. I was surprised that they were made by Nabisco.

Thanks for answering.

I just did a Google search, and found that site. Glad I could help!

I actually had visited that site and somehow missed it!

Here’s an ad for Nabisco cookies. The ideal bar is on the right page, on the far left of the right page.

The package is in the bottom row, third from the right (the orange one.)
