I loved Koogle Banana Peanut Butter so much as a kid, and am so sad that it's disappeared! I remember coming home from 7th grade, famished, and eating an entire jar with a spoon! I never liked the chocolate or cinnamon flavor very much. How fun to see it featured on your site...can I buy it anywhere?

my husband to be has shared some of his most memerable moments as a child. When he shared this particular story his excitement prompted me to research "Koogle" and I am so surprised to see that he was not the only one to share the sove for this peanut butter spread. So I wonder why they don't still sell this peanut butter spread anymore.

I remember Koogle very well , as a part of a child's unnecessary nutritional needs... Cinnamon was very amazing on toast ( i can smell it now..or can i just smell burnt toast ? lol ) And the commercial ? Kind of like a Kool-Ade character , with the lines " Here comes Koogle, with the Koog-koog-koogley EYES !" Bring back this stuff , so kids of this generation can have something to fondly wax nostalgic about , instead of 9,000 chemical food additives we suffer with today !!!!

I loved Koogle as a kid. When it disappeared off the shelves, I always wondered what happened to the best peanut butter spread. I remember seeing it on the shelves in the local "mayflower grocery store". Anyway, I've told the wife about this stuff and she does not remember it. Nice to see other people remember this stuff too. :)

I did a web search because for some reason I couldn't get the jingle out of my head. The cinnamon was my favorite - on toast, of course, or graham crackers. The banana and vanilla were good too. The chocolate wasn't quite up to the same standard - it's hard to make a decent chocolate spread. I wish I could share some of it with my 3 boys now. My oldest is about made of peanut butter. I'd love to see Kraft reintroduce it too.

Any Koogle fans remember the jingle that went "Here's looking at You-gle Koo-gle?" That's the part I remember. Banana was the ULTIMATE. Wish I had a glob of it right now. And whoever said it did have a taste like nothing else was absolutely right. I'll sign that petition any day.

I was ADDICTED to this stuff when I was a kid in the 70's. I couldn't get enough of it, especially the chocolate. I would beg my mom to buy it for me and bug other neighborhood kids if they had it. I can't remember what I put it on, though, probably ate it right out of the jar. What store carries a chocolate peanut butter in Canada? I live there now so I would go grab it in a heartbeat!

I lived on the Banana Koogle. I actually forgot about it through my adult years, but had a garage sale last year and found a Koogle LID in the pocket of an old coat I was selling! And my husband actually ate it as a kid also! Anyhow, the closest I've come to a similar taste is using regular peanut butter, and then spreading Nutella on top of the peanut butter - when the two are mixed together, it has a similar taste to the chocolate Koogle.

I grew up in a military family of 7. We shopped at the base commissary and Koogle was a staple AND a treat in our household. It was great on just about anything! Man, what a great food thing... Kraft would be foolish not to bring it back. They have a built-in fan base, ready to introduce it to a new generation (our kids)! My siblings and I actually still use "koogle" in our speech, 30-some years later. (It means someone with crazy eyes). Koogle eyes! I loved the stuff.

Peanut butter was a pretty great invention and it was a popular staple at my house growing up. Although, peanut butter was enjoyed for years as a youngster, peanut butter sandwiches could get boring at times just from the same old flavor. Then, it happenned, peanut butter with assorted flavors is available at your local supermarket! It's Koogle! You got to love those TV commercials - "Here comes Koogle, with the Koo-Koo Koogley Eyes" I think I tried all the flavors, but my favorite was the banana flavor. And then sadly, one day it was gone, and then it was back to ol' boring peanut butter again.

Ah, Koogle, the survival food for any childs fort in the back yard. My mother could never figure out why she could not keep it in the cabinet. I remember sleeping out in the back yard as my first camp outs, for survival rations, Dr. Pepper, Bananna Koogle, and a spoon.
Shawn - July 01, 2008 - Report this comment
Listen, Koogle was very expensive compared to regular peanut butter. Most mothers would not splurge for it and this is why most people did not remember it. Also I do not think it was as healthy for kids, back when people really cared about eating good. The other thing to remember is the jar was very small. I had 4 sisters and we only got it a couple times. There was another copy cat brand that came out and put swirls of jelly in the peanut butter as well. If it was still around it would not be as special of a memory.

I too remember koogle from my childhood. There is a product called Nutella that my son has on his sandwiches that reminded me so much of the chocolate Koogle that we used to have the first time I caught a smell of it, although Nutella is a chocolate/hazelnut spread. Try that if you can get it, it might just do the trick :o)

Man, this stuff was horrible. My stepmother was an executive assistant to one of the top guys at the local Kraft factory (in Atlanta) and when they discontinued this product, she got cases of Koogle. We poor kids were then told that no more peanut butter would be bought until the Koogle was eaten. (BTW, Jif Creamy is one of my 5 Desert Island foods, so I especially hated, loathed, and despised Koogle). When my father divorced her 1.5 years later, I celebrated as it meant that REAL peanut butter would be allowed back in the house! Happy day! Chocolate was the worst. The cinnamon was... palatable. Banana was almost as bad as chocolate.

Just like some of you, I had a hard time convincing co-workers Koogle even existed. I had to print it out. I remember the Chocolate and Cinnamon flavors. Even to this day, I put p.butter on bread then sprinkle with cinnamon on top, cover with jelly and devour with a glass of milk. After 30 years since its disappearance, you'd think I'd forget about it. Koogle lovers will never forget this childhood food.

A group of us were sitting around the table talking about this peanut butter and singing that jingle this past weekend.

Guys, there's a Fans of Koogle group on Facebook! You should join: http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/group.php?gid=58348436432 My parents sold their house in the mid-eighties, and moved with the jar of Koogle that had found it's way to the back of the cabinet, because none of us wanted them to throw it away. It has since become a treasured family heirloom. However, we would accept bids if they are high enough.

It's great to hear from consumers who are looking for our products because it lets us know how much you enjoy them. As you already know, the product you're trying to find has been discontinued. If products don't seem to be popular with our consumers, and demand starts to drop, a decision is made to discontinue the item. Once this decision is made, we stop making the product and the remaining supply is shipped from our warehouse to the grocery stores. At this time there are no plans to bring back our discontinued products, but we are always cooking up something new to help you live and eat better so you may discover a new favorite!

I loved the chocolate flavor when I was a kid. I would spread it on saltine crackers and go through almost a whole jar watching Saturday morning cartoons if mom didn't stop me..haha. Nutella is not even a close comparison (yuck). Bummer when some pencil-pusher decides that a product is no longer wanted or selling like they think it should. It seems like whenever I really like something, they quit making it...aarggh.

When I was in fifth grade, Koogle had already been discontinued for probably five or six years. My class was sitting on the floor of the classroom, listening to the teacher read. I was leaning back against a shelf that had a bunch of recycled jars with craft supplies in them. I was stunned to see one was an empty Koogle jar. I whispered to my friends, "Oh my God! Remember this stuff?!" No one else did. And this was back then! I'm heartened to see there are others that remember it thirty-plus years later!

I don't think I had any other flavor besides banana, but I still remember how good it tasted. I recently searched for another brand of banana peanut butter and found P.B. Loco. Unfortunately, it just isn't the same, even though it contains real bananas. Maybe that's the problem... Koogle probably had some sort of artificial flavor that is no longer used.

The year,1972. Atlanta,-I was a 9 year old koogle-junkie! We kept 3 jars in the pantry; banana, cinnamon, and chocolate. Now I live in Germany and make my own swirling Nutella and PB, or Schoko Mac and PB. Also Kaba Banana Powder and PB. But nothing will replace the real taste of Koogle. Thanks for memories. Auf Wiedersehen. Heidelberg,Teresa

It's been about 30 years since I heard that Koogle jingle, but it's still with me, sort of like a fungal infection that won't go away. What exactly are Koogely eyes and why would "the Koogle" having Koogely eyes make anyone want to buy the peanuty product? Anyway, despite the absurd (but remarkably memorable) advertising, the product wasn't too bad. It probably wouldn't be hard to reproduce most of the Koogle variants in the kitchen. Hey, maybe the absurd (but very memorable) Koogle advertising actually killed the market for Koogle?

Elias - February 04, 2009 - Report this comment
Koogle was designed to not stick to the roof of kids' mouths, (the oil/grease probably helped make that possible). I think they were criticized for having a very low peanut content. As a kid I loved it anyway.

Although I'm in TN, I grew up in New Jersey. I was recently trying to tell someone here about Koogle they were close to my age 42 and I thought that they would've remembered but they didn't so of course like many others on here you start to wonder if you are crazy, then I wondered if maybe it wasn't sold in the South? But I sang them the jingle and no memory they just laughed at me. Now I feel better finding this. In the mid 70's my sis and I saw it on tv and bugged mom constantly until she bought it, chocolate for my sister and banana for me. We ate it and went crazy on it for a month or so, then we tired of it and mom asked us,"are you kids gonna eat this stuff anymore or do I have to throw it away?" I think it got pitched. Wouldn't mind trying it again as an adult to see if the lure is still there.

I loved Koogles as well. It seems very few people remember this peanut butter mix. It was soooo good! I wrote Kraft around six months ago and ask why did they stop making this and if they ever plan on re-introducing it again. To my surprise Kraft did write back and indicated (bad news) the market wasn't their for Koogles and they regret to say this product would not be coming back. Well at least we'll have it in our memories.

The reason I "Googled" Koogle today is because I was doing some decluttering and came across a jar(empty of course) & 6 lids from Koogle. As you can guess I'm a bit of a packrat. My kids loved Koogle in the 70's. Favorites were banana and the chocolate. One of the lids I have here has an original price sticker of 71 cents. Unfortunately the label from the jar has long since been washed off. They were great jars for storing buttons and whatever.

I have a sad story about Koogle. I always wanted to try it when I was a kid, but my mom said it looked disgusting and so we settled for regular peanut butter (Skippy). Then I went on a ski trip with my friend Penny to Wisp resort to her parent's lodge and they had a jar in their cupboard. I was only a kid and didn't want to ask to try it. So I never got to try Koogle! I'm glad other people remember it too. And I love also that people are bringing up Kimba, Speed Racer (Racer X was my first crush when I was 5 lol) and Quisp. Love them! Does anyone remember that "groovy" (and hideously colored) cereal Fruit Brute? It ruled. It was the short lived werewolf cereal in the monster cereal group

Would this be a great time to bring back Koogle or what? I have contacted Kraft several times. The first time I was told that Kraft never made this product. The second time, The nice lady said she would pass it on to their marketing department. I encouraged them to go online and see all the talk about it. I remember Koogle as one of the best things about my childhood and would love to be able to share that with my daughter. In a time when alot of Americans are probably eating alot of peanut butter sandwiches, Kraft is missing out on some serious revenue. Apparently, Kraft quit making it because of declining interest--isn't that what happens with all fads? The funny thing is, all the old fads have been coming back around. So why not Koogle, too?

OMG. I was just sitting here and thinking back as to some of the cool stuff we had to eat back in the day and so, I did a simple google search for Koogle peanutbutter. As I said, OMG. I am 45 years old and I could never get enough of Koogle chocolate or banana. With all the products making a comeback today, I for the life of me can't understand why a company as big as Kraft would not at least try to make a comeback with, Koogle ? makes no since to me. Not only that, but look at the way things are today with a weak economy. More and more people are going back to oldtime favorites like chocolate etc. Their is no better time for Kraft to reintroduce a product like, Koogle. I for one would buy this product. Thanks to all of you posters for sharing your stories of Koogle. Nothing like a walk down memorylane. Life sure was much simpler back in the 70's. Sure, things were tough back then as they are today and maybe even tougher by todays standards. But I think a lot of yous that well remember the 70's know ware I'm coming from.

I have thought about that cinnamon peanut butter a million times growing up and no one ever knew what I was talking about with the "eyes". If anyone wants to try an incredible likeness, go to P B Loco. It is a peanut butter sandwich cafe in Scottsdale, AZ. I found it accidentaly with my 4 year old twins about a week ago and immedietely thought of the "eyes". I bought the jungle banana, the Sumatra cinnamon and raisin and the chocolate chip cookie dough. All are amazing and totally worth the effort to try. From what I understand, the specialty is White Chocolate Raspberry. Give them a try. You will be happy you did. By the way, bu sure to stir immediately after opening to mix all the good stuff in.

These companies are missing out on a lot of 40-50 year olds that would love a chance to buy them all. They could even go retro, and use the old packaging, like some of the candy companies have done.

I've been wondering for DECADES if they still made Koogle and it just wasn't available where I live now - kinda like not being able to get Krystal hamburgers in some states but you still had White Castle if you wanted a bunch of little square burgers! I still can't understand why they took it off the shelves, EVERY kid I knew back then loved and ate it like it was "Soylent Green" or something, so it had to be making some big bucks! I used to make "triple decker" toasted bread sandwiches - chocolate with strawberry in the middle and vanilla on the other end using 4 slices of bread and about a quarter jar of Koogle between each slice - and "Koogle and 'nanner' (banana for you non-southerners!)" fried sandwiches a la Elvis style! Any flavor of Koogle with sliced bananas cooked up in some butter in a frying pan - good and golden brown and warm enough so that the 'nanners turn almost to mush and the Koogle (or p-nut butter) is dripping down the sides...UMMM, UMMM, GOOD! Kraft would be complete idiots not to bring this potential multi-million seller - even if it was for short periods of time now and then, like Mickey D does with the McRib - I know I'd buy a few cases at a time...just to be on the safe side ;p!

Oh YES! I remember Koogle. I remember banana and chocolate for definite. And maybe a vanilla and strawberry were out there (Mom never bought those to my reckoning) Also remember that Mom had to hide it or it would disappear way before grocery day. Don't remember there being a cinnamon though (maybe that was a regional thing) I would buy some of it if it was brought back, but they'd probably come out with flavors to appeal to the kids now - watermelon, blue razberry, ikky stuff like that, not the old standards! Nutella is NOTHING like koogle - it's made from hazelnuts. Oh and I also remember Quisp and Quake cereals, Fruit Brute AND Booberry, Fizzies, and a peanut butter/jelly stripe combo (don't remember the name) in both grape and strawberry (don't think they were by the same company as the grape stripe that's available now).

Koogle toasts was my favorite breakfast but do you also remember the original Map-O-Spead? The one that tasted like real maple syrup? At some point in time, they changed the receipe and it didn't taste the same at all. The texture had also changed. Ah! good memories!

A co-worker brought some home-made peanut butter fudge to work -- I told her it tasted like Koogle. She didn't remember Koogle, neither did my mom (who bought it for me) or my husband. The fudge is peanut butter, cream cheese, and confectioners sugar with a little vanilla. If Kraft won't make any more if it, maybe we should!

Just yesterday I was talking with a co-worker who is about my age (I'm 49). She told me how she has craved peanut butter all her life. I asked if she remembered a product by the name of Koogle, which seemed to be around in my early teen years. I wasn't even sure if that was the exact name of it, but I had it right. She did remember and mentioned how she loved the banana flavor. I only recall the chocolate one. Once I Googled Koogle, voila! It was great finding this page. Hopefully Kraft or some other company will bring it back.

A close approximation of Koogle is the Peanut Butter & Co products. You can order them online or find them in better grocery stores. To recreate the Banana Koogle mix the Peanut Butter & Co White Chocolate Dreams with some banana extract. Delicious! I love PB&Co White Chocolate Dreams flavor on Banana Bread or Peanute Butter and Banana Sandwiches.

Every now and again I think about Koogle peanut butter and how much I loved it when I was a kid. It is a travestry it didn't catch on then and an even bigger travestry that Kraft Foods won't even consider bring back this phenomenal product. OK Kraft let's get with the program. Surely you cannot ignore the desires of hundreds if not thousands of persons who genuinely want to see the return of this product. As one person in an earlier comment stated at least try a limited run and see how it does. It won't bankrupt Kraft to at least try.

My brother and sister and I loved this stuff! I liked the chocolate, my brother the banana, and my sister the cinnamon. We had to take turns getting our flavor when my mom went to grocery shopping. Nutella and regular peanut butter together is the closest I've come, but I wonder if perhaps my adult palate has idealized childhood flavors? I recently found "Fizzies" and the taste is just not the same as I remember ... Still, I wish they'd bring Koogle back. We didn't even need bread, jsut scoop it with a spoon and enjoy.

I gave Koogle to my children back in the 70s. It went over great, especially the chocolate. Since it went out of production at Kraft, I make it myself.

At first, I didn't remember this product. At least not by its name. Now little by little, a hazy memory comes back into focus and I now recall this awful tasting stuff! Although it was like peanut butter, it did not have the same taste. You know how peanut butter has a fresh roasted peanutty smell? Well this stuff smelled more like Silly Putty. It wasn't sweet enough and everything about the flavor was very artificial and nasty tasting. It smelled and tasted like peanut butter that had gone bad, like moldy. It was awful.

Koogle was about 10 years ahead of it's time. I think Kraft has forgotten all about it now. I think It would do great now if they could use less hydrogenated Vegetable oil. I have made some peanut butter myself. We made an organic peanut butter with Molasses and Coconut oil, and we added raw cacao beens for chocolate flavor to try to get the Koogle thing going. The parents wouldn't buy it because it was too expensive. Chocolate costs a lot. Peanuts have gone up now also, maybe it is time to bring back Koogle?

I have loved this peanut butter so much and was so bummed when they stopped making it. I have recently found one at World Plus Market and HOPED it would be similar, nope, not even close. Back to the drawing board til just the other day, was at Meijer, why I always look I have no idea. Well I am so glad I did, they have a brand called Sundland natural Peanut Butter and Banana Spread and I had to try it, well it is awesome! Unless my tastebuds aren't like they were back then, its nearly perfect! Love it!!!!

My mom bought me my very own Koogle Banana PB in the early 70's and I had to hide from 5 siblings. Not an easy task. They always wanted to know what my mom was doing when she was sneaking me a Koogle PB san. So anywho, where in the heck can I buy some nowadays in WA state? Holler back if you can help a Koogle sister out. Seriously...

All of the kids in my neighborhood loved Koogle, we never put it on anything, just opened the jars, sat out on the curb, and used a spoon to eat it before jumping on our skateboards and riding around to burn off all of that sugar. Chocolate, Vanilla, Banana, and Cinnamon were the flavors, probably wouldn't fall under the "peanut butter" catagory today but whatever it was it was good. Wish I had all of those jars to prove this stuff existed, the people I meet today think I am crazy when I tell them about Koogle and that song "Here comes Koogle with the Koo-Koo-Koogley eyes", great childhood memory.

Like most of these other comments, I loved and missed Koogle when it was mysteriously yanked from the shelves. Less that 1 in 20 seem to remember it.

I sang the Koogle jingle to my kids & of course, I got the eye roll. Yet, some years back Jif made their version, I bought it & the kids & I loved it. Chocolate was the best. Unfortunately, it is gone now too, & yet they still make that nasty Goober PB/jelly in 1 jar. Ugh!

Yes, Koogle ROCKS!! Remembering that wonderful Bicentennial Summer of '76, and mom and I were at the grocery store. I was ten years old at the time, and I saw the Vanilla-flavored Koogle. Like all ten year-olds, I wanted it, and she picked it up for me. Thanks MOM!! She would buy Koogle nonstop until 1979 when I think it was discontinued. Just like all good things-that's when the '70s had to end

Loved Koogle as a kid. I'd dip vanilla wafers right in the jar and just loved it. I'd love to have a jar right now.

I loved the Dark Chocolate Koogle. Funny thing is that I sent an e-mail to Kraft (the manufacturer) to ask if they still made it and received a response from their customer service department that they weren't the manufacturer of Koogle. I had to scan a picture I had of a Koogle jar with the "Kraft" logo in plain view to prove it to them. Then I told them that they should learn a little about their historical brands...

I lived in Boston MA when my mom bought this Koogle peanut butter and banana spread for myself and my two siblings. We were picky eaters back then and she would give us anything to make us eat. Koogle Peanut butter was GREAT!!! The song would roll around my head each time I'd take a bite of that absolutely delicious Peanut butter and Banana sandwich, nothing else could compare to it. Can still remember the jingle and the closest I've gotten to imitating the flavor is by using peanut butter and real bananas spread on a sandwich. I would love to find a jar to eat up, maybe buy the whole shelf, yum yum. Please Kraft bring back this product it will fly off the shelves by not only us who first had it but by our children and grandchilren too. BRING BACK KOOGLE!!!!

I don't know about anyone else but just reading about Koogle still makes me smile, I get excited like I am a little kid again. I am just like the others, when I talk about this "chocolate peanut butter wonder" no one remembers it, how is that possible!!!?? we lived in the same town together. My mom bought it for me because I have never liked peanut butter but could stand or should I say LOVED the Chocolate Koogle. My husband is only 3 years older then me and he does not remember it. I also remember "Kaboom" cereal with the clown on the front. Thanks whoever started this blog.

i was truly hoping to find a koogle frozen in a block of ice somewhere. the cinnamon was delicious and for the life of me i cant figure out why no food manufacturer produces a cinnamon flavored peanut butter spread. anyone wanna go into business?

Ok I found at Walmart the closest thing to Koogle's chocolate peanut butter, it is "Jiff to Go". There are 8 small to go packs. it is called "chocolate silk" i brought it to work and let everyone have a taste. I told them this is what i remember best from my childhood.

"Koogle comes in vanilla, banana, and cinnamon too. But CHOCOLATE KOOGLE? Shabop Dat Wah!Peanutty Koogle with the Koo-Koo-Kooglie Eyes!" Yes, I too loved Koogle. Vanilla was my favorite. Loved to spread it on bread and put King Vitamin cereal on it for extra crunch!

I shared a jar of my Koogle with a young man then hitch-hiking to college one fall way back then. Our family was headed North the same as him. He rode in the back of the camper on the back of the truck with me and we ate Koogle, talked, and slept all the way North. I'd buy a jar!

Oh I miss Koogle!!! The Nutella & Jif's chocolate spread does not measure up at all. They both have a funky taste. I'd love to see Koogle make a come back but I read an earlier post from someone who called Kraft & Kraft told them that they will not bring back discontinued items. Why Kraft? It looks like Koogle was & still is popular & would probably be a money maker. Bring it back!

I remember Koogle from the early 70's or so. Loved the banana, chocolate and cinnamon flavors, but wasn't too crazy for the vanilla. I'll toast bread, spread some Jif peanut butter on it and sprinkle some cinnamon on it to have a similar flavor.

I made koogle for my children when they were small & they stopped making it i made up a recipe of my own using peanut butter butter & icing powder not too much butter or margarine just enough to soften p butter so that it can be mixed w icing, to make strawberry add str quick ( the kind you mix in milk) for other flavors use bananna or choc my children,now adults still ask for it

I have searched high and low to find proof that this stuff ever existed!Everyone thinks I'm nuts! I wondered if it was just an east-coast thing, as out here in Washington, no one seems to have heard of it. So...does anyone remember a commercial that went "Coffee beans and human beings were meant to be the best of friends!"? That's another one that eveyone thinks I made up!

Wow,how awesome! I really thought I might be one of only a handful of people that might remember Koogle. ILÔVED the PB &banana like crazy. I don't remember the others but I love Nutella and PB. If this many people not only remember but loved it, they ought to bring it back!!

By the way...while we are at it...does anyone remember a particular Pillsbury Dough product that was bacon flavored dough squares you fit into greased-up muffin tins and cracked an egg into them? The dough would bake into like a bacon flavored pizza dough and the egg would cook PERFECT and when you cut into it the egg would break and the yolk would mix with the dough and...Mmmmmmmmm! Does anyone remember that???

Used to buy koogle for my kids. We all loved it. Just talking about it with my 45 year old daughter the other day. She noticed I still had some empty jars in my workshop holding nails. And to those of you who do not like Nutella, that is because you are eating that crummy Canadian stuff, which is what is sold in the grocery stores in the United States. Nutella is not made in America. Try to get some Belgian, French, or Italian Nutella. Then you will really love the stuff

Oh, I absolutely remember this stuff and could sing the jingle that went along with the commercial. I was probably 6 or 7 when I saw commercials for Koogle and I just had to have the chocolate flavor. Unfortunately, I know why they stopped making the stuff. It was gross! Even as a chocolate loving child, I thought it didn't taste very good.

I adored "Koogle", especially chocolate. I've told many people over the years about it. Nobody ever knows what I'm talking about. Doesn't matter, I remember it! And Nutella is not as good. Another prdouct I miss from the seventies that nobody seems to remember is "Suddenly Spaghetti". Man I loved it, too! Nice seeing everybody here.

Well I also loved Koogle, but as indicated on wikipedia, the second ingredient was "partially hardened vegetable oil"... You know what that means? Lol! Makes sense to me that the product disappeared.

Yeah! Koogle and Saturday morning cartoons! This is one of the few "fad" food items my mom actually allowed me to have! My favorite flavor was chocolate and I loved to eat it on warm toast. My friends liked vanilla. I wish I could find the "Koogly Eyes" commercial on YouTube, but the only one available is the first one w/ Alice Playten. Jif and Skippy came close w/ their chocolate flavors, and I would always mention to people that it reminded me of Koogle. I try making my own w/ chocolate syrup and peanut butter, but it's just not the same. BRING BACK KOOGLE!!
