Archway Cookies Makes a Comeback, Too

The economy continues to tumble, yet there's no end in sight when it comes to the pattern of reviving extinguished store-bought cookie brands. Following the rebirth of Mother's cookies by Kellogg's, snack company Lance is bailing out Archway, the sister company to Mother's that also collapsed this October. Before its demise, Archway was known nationwide for its soft-batch cookies in various flavors such as oatmeal and nougat. When Archway filed for Chapter 11, nearly 300 workers were left displaced and without jobs. Last week, Lance stunned former employees by giving many of them their old jobs back and presenting each full-time employee with a $1,500 gift card. The Charlotte, NC-based company resumed operations at Archway this week.

I'm glad to hear that these cookies are coming back, and even more thrilled to hear of people getting their jobs back. At a time when layoffs seem to be the only news making headlines, I'm relieved that at least some people are happily returning to their jobs. Are you excited for the return of Archway cookies?

Tried frantically to find Archways wonderful soft Pfefferniisse Cookies for x-mas to no avail. Found at Krogers food store the Pfefferniise cookies direct from Germany but they had hard sugar coating not like powdered sugar cookies from Archway. Hopefully Archway's recipe of the cookies will be retained for the new provider.

My mom loves the Mexican Wedding Cakes that Archway makes. I remember when I was a mom would load up on those at Christmastime. We used to love eating them and getting powdered sugar everywhere.
