So as everyone and their mother (pun intended) knows, Mother's Cookies has gone belly up (although I suspect it's a matter of time before someone else buys them post mortem and the cookies are saved). I've never particularly given a rat's ass about Mother's Cookies, as most of them have seemed like a waste of time to me since they tend to contain little or no chocolate, which is my dessert of preference.
But people are going really crazy about Mother's going out of business. Come on people. If you loved them so much why weren't you buying the damn cookies? I'll tell you: Because they're not that great. Even my own hubs is all boohoo about Mother's croaking.
So we went to a friend's home for dinner last night, and piled neatly near the dining room table were about 30 bags of Mother's cookies. Upon hearing of Mother's demise, she'd promptly run out to three grocery stores. The first two had already been cleaned out. The last one had about 30 bags. Which she bought. She tells us bags of Mother's cookies are selling for $10 on ebay, plus shipping and handling.
