The Origin Story
Long ago in cookie-land, animals didn’t stray too far from the herd. Camels stuck with camels. Lions with lions. Unicorns with unicorns. Day after day, the same routine. Then one morning, a volcano erupted shooting sprinkles out into the sky, and sending rivers of frosting flowing through the lands. By the next morning, every creature under the sun was polka-dotted and bright. The animals thought, well this is weird. But it was also pretty sweet and delicious. The frosted animals became instant friends. And from that day on, cookie-land became infinitely more fun. Kids have been delighting in Mother’s Cookies ever since.

Who We Are
It all started in 1914 at a newspaper stand in Oakland, California. N.M. Wheatley, a newspaper vendor, purchased the rights of some unusually delicious home-baked cookies from a customer. N.M. named the cookies Mother's in honor of the brand new holiday, Mother's Day! These are the iconic Circus Animal Cookies you know and love, and soon they became a hit. Within a year, he sold the newspaper stand and began baking two thousand cookies a day in a small bakeshop.
Today, Mother’s Circus Animal Cookies are enjoyed by playful, imaginative children all over the world.
