I have been trying to find the name of a marshmallow sandwich cookie from the 70s or 80s that was two "nilla" wafers with a puffy marshmallow in the middle. The cookies were kind of soft. Can anyone email me with the name?

We had a discussion in my family about a year ago regarding exactly that cookie. Nabisco used to make them, but they don't any longer. The cookies were small enough that you could pop one whole in your mouth. They came in a double box wrapped in blue paper. I can still taste them. They were delicious! I don't think they ever had a catchy name. Just something like Nabisco Marshmallow Sandwich cookies.

We were just discussing these at work. I remember the boxes lined with wax paper, and that little bit of apricot jam that held the marshmellow to the cookie. I'm glad to see they were't called anything other than Marshmellow sandwiches, since that is what we always called them. They were a favorite of my fathers. Sometimes we would leave the box open and let them get a little hard. Definately one of those tates that stays in you memory.

I have found a rather useful link with a picture of the cookie's box. The name was, in fact, simple Marshmallow Sandwiches! Here's the link: Unfortunately, they are not being produced anymore.

The web site picture brought back some fond memories of childhood. We should start a PETITION to Nabisco to bring the Marshmallow Cookie back!!!!!!

These cookies where my absolute favorite. I was so upset when the supermarket stopped selling them. I was all of five.

I was just reading a blog about these cookies which did have a thin layer of apricot jelly between the cookie and the marshmellow, nobody seemed to remember this over there, i think because the jelly used to blend in with the cookie, but delicious! had fond memories of these in the 70's after school.

My sister and I have been talking about these cookies for years. I keep wishing that someone will make them again. Hey they now make astro pops again, so maybe there's still hope!!!!!!

There was 100% no layer of jelly or jam. This cookie was semi-firm marshmellow between two Very soft vanilla wafers. It came in a blue box and was sold in NYC buy i dont remember the name.
