I loved these cookies, They were big too. Came shaped like Vampire with purple Icing, they were like a cinnamon/graham flavor, Mummies had white icing and were like sugar cookies, Frankenstein had Orange Icing and they were peanut butter and witches were green and were choc chip. My fav's were the peanut butter and the cinnamon.

I think there was also a monster cookie that looked like a monster had taken a bite out it.

We used to have these after our cub scout meetings in the late 70's. On the inside back cover of one box I cut out the "Toy" which was a cardboard 45 record. Good times!

These were the best! I couldn't remember what they were called, only that they were monster-shaped cookies, and that they were big (I was only allowed to have one at a time instead of two, LOL). From the descriptions here these have to be it. I remember the cinnamon flavored vampires and the peanut butter Frankensteins. I think we only got these cookies one year at around Halloween... I guess they were a seasonal/limited edition. Oh man would I love to see these come back.

Thanks for validating my memory too!! I have looked for a pic of these several times, but still haven't been able to find one. I remember getting these at a little store where my mom would meet me when I got off the school bus. Had to be around 1975 or 1976.

I can now try and explain these cookies to family and friends without them looking at me like I need an intervention. Unless this was just a shared hallucination spurned by second hand pot smoke from our parent's disco themed parties. Aside from the previous comments, I would like to add my memories of the packaging. My memory is suggesting a pink box with graphics of the cookies on top. Also, I think they were sectioned off inside, with wax paper seperating the individual cookies so as not to get the icing stuck to the next cookie up the stack. And that's all I got.. Also wanted to mention that they were purchased from a small local store (Associated Grocery), mid to late 70's on Long Island, NY). Someone suggested they may have been regional, so any previous or future commentors please leave your location where you were when you were consuming these last. Any clues might help the search for an actual picture or product name. Think hard, people!

@Keith, I grew up in Staten Island, NY. You could be right about it being a regional thing. (I posted above you in July 2013. Just happened to drop by this thread again today!)
