Hi there! I am looking for well known cookie people/figures/characters.

Here is what I have so far:
Cookie Monster
Famous Amos
Mrs. Fields
Keebler elves

Any other suggestions?

      Well, I am not certain whether these folks would be famous in all circles, but back in the 50's a very popular cookie treat was the Playbox. It had iced cookies with nursery rhyme themes.It was the subject of a nostalgic thread not too long ago. Apparently, the boxes go for big bucks.

      And, of course, there is always Thje Gingerbread Man

        As much as it frightens me to think I actually remembered this, there's the Eatin' Park Smiley cookie.


        I'm only submitting this in the name of research. This better be for a good cause!

            Oh...and Santa Claus, duh! He may not make 'em, but he sure does eat 'em. (I may be Jewish but I at least know that much.=)

              Back in the day, before Burry's was bought out by LU, they made (in addition to the much missed FudgeTown cookies, see other threads) a cookie called Mr. Chips. As I recall, he was a silhouetted figure in a Trenchcoat, but I could be wrong.. Happy searching! Adam
