I grew up in Baltimore and fondly remember getting a package of cookies from the school cafeterias in my youth. I got these cookies from elementary school, junior high and high school. They came in three flavors, 2 cookies to a pack. One was chocolate chip one was chocolate chocolate chip and the other was butter something, butterscotch chip?
I have been trying to find these cookies for many years.

Does this ring a bell with anyone? Your help is much appreciated.

FOUND: They were made by Linden's and they are still made!

      Funny! I was just about to post the same link! That's exactly what they were. Thanks for bringing back fond memories.

    2. I know exactly what you're talking about! I grew up in NJ in the 70s & 80s and we had them in my school too. The butter one was my favorite (I don't remember exactly what the chips were, but I don't think they were butterscotch) I distinctly remember the packages, they had big script writing on them and were clear and brown, I think. I still see them in delis from time to time....I'm going to think on it and see if I can remember what they were.
