Round yellow cakes with cream filling. Covered in beige colored icing, and little crumbs on top. I believe that Snoopy was on the package, when Dolly Madison was using the Peanuts characters for their advertising.

Oh man, wish they'd bring these back. They sold them in the two-pack but also in a 9-pack or some such multi-pack. I remember the Peanuts characters as well but can't remember if it was Snoopy. Seems like the cakes had bits of coconut on them as well.

I remember watching the Peanut's cartoon specials in the evenings in the 70's. That was back in the day before VCR's and cable, where if you missed watching the program, you were out of luck until it aired again the next year, if at all. I lived in Michigan and could never find the Dolly Madison brand in stores. I thought I was missing something special because we only saw those commercials during the Peanuts specials. I was ripped off I think! lol

Koo-koos were ny favorite thing that Dolly Madison made. I even liked them better than Zingers! That rich moist cake with cream filling and delicious icing on top was the greatest! I'm another one that wishes they'd bring the original Koo-koo back on the market!

I was just telling my husband about these the other night! I told him when I was good my Dad use to buy them for me, he said, I guess you didn'g get them too often lol. I so wish they'd bring them back too. The outer icing was the best! I do believe it was coconut on top but that was so long ago, can't be sure. I wish I could find a picture to bring back even more memories.

I have a craving for a Koo Koo now and then but the people I know haven't heard of it! I recall a vanilla cake with white cream filling, and vanilla icing with specks of vanilla bean. Of course, that was 30 or so yrs ago. My family would certainly like them. I've found nothing similar, so it would be wonderful to see them again.

I remember them in the mid 80's, and they where not round but shaped more like a rectangular block. Linus and Charlie Brown were on the package. I have not seen one since 1987. 'Sigh!'

I think I had a package every day! I remember it had so much filling - not like the Ding Dongs of today... PS: I am not fat! 6'1 200 but I would still eat them!

These are my all-time favorite and I wish Dolly Madison would bring them back. Who do I need to talk to and/or bribe?

They need to bring back Koo Koos, Great Shakes, and Space Food Sticks! They were ALL the bomb! ;)

They were incredible. I just remembered them the other day. I have not had one in years. They are not Heaven but they are close. Maybe I will e-mail Dolly Madison and see if they will bring them back!

finally someone that actually remembers Koo-kos. I used to buy them from local grocery store would buy all they had.I would take high school then resale them along with Now or Laters and chick o sticks. Sucks now than hostess just went under no will never see them again. just in case if anyone can link a picture of them it would be great.

Yes....I sure loved these cakes as well. Why do they quit making the GOOD stuff? Now Hostess has gone south. What a drag for us Americans!

Used to eat KooKoos several times a week, along with Mickey's Devil Delight cakes. Anyone have a recipe? I would try to make them myself, I'm so desperate for both of them!!! I can't even find Susie-Q's any more.

I remember Googles, KooKoos, Razzies, and Pupcakes by Dolly Madison. Advertised with Peanuts characters, late '60s/early '70s. Also, Mickey's Banana Flips... yum!

Before Koo Koos there was the same cake in a larger version. Package of one and about twice as big as the smaller koo koos. Anyone remember. About the same time as Banana Flip.

I don't know why some of these companies don't pick up on and remake some of these older candy or cup cake versions. Many of them were REALLY REALLY good! I loved Koo Koos & Milkshake bars!

The first TV commercial for Koo Koos aired on the "Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" in 1970 over CBS. In the very first Peanuts (Christmas, 1965) special, Coca-Cola was the lone sponsor. Dolly Madison (Continental) became a co-sponsor starting with "Charlie Brown's All-Stars" in June, 1966, and maintained sponsorship for 22 years. In 1971, McDonald's replaced Coca-Cola as the alternate sponsor.
