I don’t remember the first time I had Archway cookies, but I really really love the plain oatmeal flavored ones. They were, and probably still are, my dad’s favorite cookies too. That’s how I first tried them. Sometime after getting back to the US last year, I found out that Archway had gone out of business and I was really upset by it. It sounds ridiculous to get upset over cookies, but they’re just that good!
I searched around to see if any stores still had packages of the plain oatmeal cookies in stock, but I didn’t have any luck. Today on my way home I stopped in A&P on 14th street and saw Archway cookies on the shelf. They didn’t have plain oatmeal, so I got the ones pictured above instead. On the way out, I stopped to talk to the store manager and he told me that Weiz had bought them and was distributing the cookies again. I asked him if he could get in some of the plain oatmeal cookies and he said he would talk to the distributor about getting some.
Life just got better.
