Cup O' Custard cookies; do they yet exist?

Several years ago, about ten, I began searching in the cookie aisles for a favorite cookie from my childhood. Cup O' Custard, a butter colored cookie, two cookies with a cream filling a' la Oreos.

Can't find them. I think the baker was Sunshine Bakery.

Any help will certainly get you into heaven.

  1. I've never heard of Cup O' Custard cookies.

    Sunshine Biscuit Co. was bought by Keebler in the 90's and most of their product offerings were discontinued or moved to the Keebler label.

      Thanks for the info re Sunshine. I'll try Keebler.

    2. I just wanted to add my two cents on Sunshine Cup of Custard cookies. This was my favorite, bar none, cookie, as I was growing up in the 50s and 60s. The last time I found them was in the 70s or 80s at a salvage food warehouse. I am pleased to see that Keebler bought them out. I also, will contact Keebler to see if these are available. I appreciate the information. I was just surfing the net for favorite foods I can't find any more.

        Thank you for responding. I've emailed Keebler on 9/02/06 but have as yet to receive a reply. There are some cookies that come a close second, Mother's Taffy and some general vanilla cookies, but nothing that resembles the Cup O' Custard. And yes, I find it hard to accept, but it was probably in the late 60's the last time I saw a package of Cup O' Custard in the store.

      2. I have researched this. Keebler is owned by the Kellogg Company. They no longer make Cup O'Custard cookies because there is not enough demand. I asked them how they know there is no demand if they are not on the market, but they didn't answer that.

        1. I don't think they do exist. They were WONDERFUL. My absolute favorite. I think I will spend the rest of my life yearning for them!!

          1. I cannot believe this... I did a search in Google and found this topic. I loved them too!!! The cookie always seemed softer than most sandwich cookies and the filling was so very yummy. What a shame that they seem to be gone forever. Ah well

            1. These cookies are/were great. Maybe we could get them restarted. I still look for them, but to no avail

                Absolutely a dessert cake cookie! Loved them. They came in vanilla and sometimes a mix of a chocolate version with vanilla iced centers I think down the middle. I always preferred the vanilla but the chocolate was good because it was sort of bittersweet.
                They were bigger than the Taffy cookie, great suggestion, but the cookie on the the outside was more tender and melted/crumbled in your mouth in your mouth because of the butter content. I still look too... Sunshine you need to get back in the saddle and re-release a new and healthier version of these and sell em in the health markets! Everybody loves a good cookie now and then.

              2. I miss these Cup O Custards and catch myself looking for them. EVERYWHERE! These were also my absolute favorite dessert cookie. I don't buy any other cookie except some chip dunkers at Trader Joe's, so, Keebler doesn't have me as a customer. I say any demand is better than me NEVER buying anything they make.
