  1. They're marketed as Danish, right? (They're made by an American company, though.) Some are pretzel shapes, some little ridged rectangles, two sizes of rounds, etc. If those are the ones you mean, I think I saw them at Super Walmart. Walmart's product mix varies widely by region, but it might be worth a try.

      I believe they were all one shape in a tall coffee type can. But I am going to look at Wally world. Thanks....

    2. Assuming you mean these...

      They're available all over the place all the time... Don't know what drug stores you've got available near you, but here in Los Angeles, Rite-Aid, CVS, and Walgreen's all carry them. Even Staples.com has 'em.

          Those aren't the ones. I'm trying really hard to remember these cookies, and I do have a vague recollection of them. Shaylala, is there anything else you remember that might jog my memory?

            Hmm it was the swirl type cookie and I think it had the word Dutch or a lady on the can?.

        2. Hi! I remember those cookies too and also have been trying to find them with no luck. I think they are made by a Seattle company called Baders. As far as I know though, they do not have a website and I haven't found anyone online that carries them. Hope that helps and maybe someone will be able to find them!

          1. I found a phone #, but it's VM is full. I will HAVE to track down this Seattle baker. Those cookies were delicious. Wonder why all the posts looking for them are from P.R. Must be the only place they sold them. Good luck, and will post again if I have any success. Where is my glass of milk???

                Hi! Did you find them? I'm looking for these cookies since 20 years ago. I tried them in Puerto Rico. I think that we are talking about the same cookies. Tall light blue can with a dutch girl, four or five layers of cookies and we had to use a can opener. Please, could you share with us more information?

                  My brother and sisters and I have been craving them for many years. Our grandmother used to buy them here in Puerto Rico. The were exactly in the can you describe with the dutch girl and the just crumbled in your mouth, are they still making them?
