Archway Cookies Are Back!

Iced Oatmeal and Dutch Cocoa Archway cookies.

I don’t remember the first time I had Archway cookies, but I really really love the plain oatmeal flavored ones.  They were, and probably still are, my dad’s favorite cookies too.  That’s how I first tried them.  Sometime after getting back to the US last year, I found out that Archway had gone out of business and I was really upset by it.  It sounds ridiculous to get upset over cookies, but they’re just that good!

I searched around to see if any stores still had packages of the plain oatmeal cookies in stock, but I didn’t have any luck.  Today on my way home I stopped in A&P on 14th street and saw Archway cookies on the shelf.  They didn’t have plain oatmeal, so I got the ones pictured above instead.  On the way out, I stopped to talk to the store manager and he told me that Weiz had bought them and was distributing the cookies again.  I asked him if he could get in some of the plain oatmeal cookies and he said he would talk to the distributor about getting some.

Life just got better.

  1. TheHOchieS: Glad I could help. If you can't find them anywhere else, I got these at the A&P on 14th Street and 1st Ave. Get off the train at Union Square, then take the 14a or 14d heading east on 14th street. =)

  4. I've had gingersnaps before. I have to be in a certain mood to eat them and I can only have a few at a time.Archways are the best cookies I've ever had. I felt like I'd lost an old friend when I was told they were going out of business. I'm so glad they're back. =)

  5. Classic.I have never seen the iced oatmeal pictured above, but that looks too awesome. You also can't go wrong with the Dutch Cocoa, perfect with cold milk.When I was younger, for some odd reason and due to the lack of my purchasing power as a child, there were always the Gingersnap flavored Archway cookies in the house. I only resorted to those when there was no alternatives.
