Flaky Flix in LA?

Hey, fellow chowhounds!
I am pretty sure this is a lost cause, but it is worth one last shot.
From what I've gathered, based on searching online, the Mother's Cookie Company has either gone under, been bought out, or has somehow changed in a way I don't understand. But that isn't really the point.
The thing that pains me about this is that they used to have a product called "Flaky Flix" and no matter where I search in Los Angeles, I simply cannot find these things. These were a special kind of cookie- light, flaky and sinfully sweet. I think they are just out of production, but if ANYONE knows of a place where they are still being sold in the Southern California area, PLEASE share the info!!! I'm begging you! I'd be thrilled to get my hands on a remaining box of these bad boys! Thank you!!!

  1. Holy Cow, ilovegobo,
    I was craving Flaky Flix about 3 months ago...went to Ralphs, no luck. Went to Target...no luck. Asked some people...they had no clue what I was talking about.
    Thanks for keeping me from thinking I was crazy.
    I LOVE Flaky Fix but can't find them either...hopefully a CHer will be able to help us.

      Aw. It is good to know I'm not the only one who has been missing these guys. You are absolutely not crazy! I'm with ya...
      And if you ever find anything that even approximates Flaky Flix, please let me know. Those goofy generic fudge layer cookies that they are trying to pass off as a substitute in stores are kind of ridiculous. I had a grocery clerk try to tell me that these were the same things as Flaky Flix! That is just silly talk in my book. :)

    2. Sorry for the bad news: "...both flavors of Flaky Flix are completely gone. Anything you may find now, from even the last production runs, will be well past the expiration date."

        NOOOOOOOOooooooooooo!
        SAy it ain't so!
        Yeiks!
        I LOVED those guys!

      2. God I miss Flaky Flix. My friend's mom used to keep them in the fridge for us, both vanilla and chocolate flavors. Still love Mother's Cookies though. Mmmm... taffy or iced raisin. Yum!

        1. I used to eat Flaky Flix by the whole plastic container full. I never found them to be sinfully sweet, but loved the "flaky" part, with the cornflake-like flakes. Hadn't had them in years and never noticed they disappeared. That is really too bad.

          1. I really don't mean to hijack your post but does anyone remember Yum Yums? Better yet, does anyone know if they're still available and where?

              Hijack away. :) That's what the board is here for.
              Unfortunately, I don't remember Yum Yums. Good luck with your search, though!

                ooooo with the gooey caramel and chocolate and coconut? sweet city, I'm sure my dentist is glad they're gone! They were more like a crispy candy than a cookie!
