|Almost Home cookies from the '80s.|
Does anyone remember Almost Home cookies by Nabisco?
I've already reminisced about yummy long-gone 1980s foods like TEAM Flakes, Better Cheddars and Pudding Pops. I want to dedicate this post my favorite cookies from the '80s -- Almost Home. These soft cookies truly rocked. I think I first had them at my grandma's house. She probably bought them on sale or with a coupon. I sorta remember my grandparents saying they didn't like them because of their chewy consistency. Most adults prefer crunchy cookies.
Nabisco was one of the first companies to introduce SOFT and chewy cookies. However, soft and chewy obviously don't always sell well and Almost Home cookies faded into the woodwork along with foods like Chicken Tonight and JELL-O 123.
About a year ago, I picked up a box of Chewy Chips Ahoy! and was shocked to taste a big difference in their chewiness. They were rubbery and nothing like they once were. This made me realize that if Almost Home cookies were available today, they too would most likely taste rubbery -- they're both made by Nabisco.
Here's a cool retro commercial from 1983 for Nabisco's Almost Home cookies.
