OMG!! I was just in the kitchen area with a co-worker and she was talking about how much she would buy oreo's if they didn't come with the creme filling and I said they used to have these cookies in the 90's that I ABSOLUTELY LOVED that were either all chocolate like the oreo or the chocolate chip one's but I just didn't know the name..if anyone finds out who sells them please let me know!

OMGosh.. YES I have been TRYING to track down those CHOCOLATE Cookies for a while now. Trader Joes sold a version of them called "Brownie Crips" but they no longer carry them. Can't track down the supplier. Hey Nabisco- Animal Crackers are 100 yrs old, WHY NOT BRING BACK THE CHOCOLATE ONES with the cat face drawn on them??? Pleaseohpleaseohpleaseohplease!

I was thinking about these, specifically the "Ginger Snaps" boxed cookies.

I'm trying to figure out if they still sell those little peanut butter stars. They came in a white box with a cellophane front (like Xmas ornaments come in). The box had red writing on it, and I seem to remember the name Ferrera Pan. Hard to tell, since I was 5! Anyone know what I'm talking about?

My absolute fave when I was a kid outside of Boston. I loved the red box (choc chip), with the cat drawn on the cookie, and the brown/black box (chcoclate), with the mouse face. Oh, where is this good stuff with all the real sugar and no HFCS, which tastes like crap!!! Love this site

What an interesting email thread! I grew up in Stamford, CT and my favorite ones were the chocolate ones that came in the brown box. Foods were delectable back in the 70s compared to what we have today.

Gosh so miss those box of chocolate chip cookies with the cat ears and whiskers drawn over the cookie on the box. I'm craving them as type. How they come to such an idiot decision to discontinue the sale of these cookies. I love some other Nabisco cookies but have been completely satisfied wit Nabisco since I ate my last bite of these super delicious cookies. Being a nurse student I find my self snacking more these cookies would be so great right now.

It's too funny, my baby sister was just asking me about these mini chocolate chip cookies she remembered eating as a young girl, it came in a box similar in size to the animal crackers. Well, she googled it and it was called "Chocolate chip snaps" 2 3/4 oz box. Made by Nabisco. The box was red with white. Also the cookie had a cat face drawn on it. Let's all write to the company and ask of they will bring them back. Power in number folks! Do it now. Thanks all.

WOW!! I have been asking EVERYONE for YEARS if they remembered these cookies with the Cat's Face on the Cookie!! They had Chocolate Chip and Chocolate CHOCOLATE Chip!! One Box was Red and White and I believe the other one was Goldish and White. My Mama's brother used to bring me and my brother those every time he came to visit!! This was the 70's Early 80's!! I hope someone finds the picture..They should bring those back I LOVED those cookies!

I've been trying to find the cookies called Choco Chip for a long time. They use to come in a box. I use to go down to the corner store as a young girl and get a box just about every day because they were not only my favorite they were so good. I believe they were made by Nabisco and they use to have a cat face on them. Please Please Please bring them back.

Rob Lambert - June 08, 2012 - Report this comment
Nabisco Chocolate Chip Cookies in the smaller box which sold for twenty cents. The oddity of this is: Why Nabisco did a self-compete against its own (more popular) Chips Ahoy? These did taste a bit different, were textured differently, and had fewer chips that Chips Ahoy. I recall seeing these between 1975 and 1980, then Nabisco moved on to new products. For cookie buffs, I don't have any TV commercials for the 1970s Chocolate Chip small boxes. However, I have an early Chips Ahoy ad, featuring Cookie Man fighting a weird sea monster, from an episode of the "Road Runner" cartoon show (1/14/67, CBS). Charles should have a Chips Ahoy page here.

Please.... bring back the chocolate dark brown box and the chocolate chips with the cat face on it from back in the day, around 1970's and 1980's. They were nothing but the truth and I honestly believe Nabisco lost a fortune discontinuing them. They were my best friends until the end. Please know I'm someone who was truly disappointed when they were discontinue.

It would be fantastic if Nabisco brought these cookies back. They were my favotite..my mom always bought me a box when we went food shopping. My favorite was the chocolate cookie but I loved the chocolate chip as well. It has to be the original receipe though if Nabisco brings it back.
John - October 11, 2012 - Report this comment
If you want to taste the old chocolate cookie snap in the square little box all you have to do is buy a box of the Nabisco chocolate wafers (used to make like ice box cake) in the yellow box. The recipe is so close you think your eating your childhood cookies again. It even has bits of coconut in them just like the chocolate snaps.

People ur girl has done a lil homework for those of us who want to find these cookies. They were originally under Nabisco now Kraft and were called Nabisco chocolate snap and chocolate chip cookies. They were discontinued due to low demand if you can believe that. I'm still searching and if I find any I'll be sure to tell. Smooches!

I remember these cookies from the 80s. You could only buy them from the corner store by the high school. I sure would like to have some of those chocolate chip cookies now. I miss the snacks and foods of my child hood. Please Nabisco give the children of he 70s & 80s a piece of their childhood back. Please don't change the recipe.

A: We still carry a wide variety of cookie products that were originally under the Nabisco label. There are some types of cookies that have been discontinued. There were not enough consumers buying the products to support its continued production. The following is a list of cookies that we most commonly receive questions about, and have been discontinued: FANCY CRESTS NABISCO MARSHMALLOW SANDWICH SWEET CRISPERS NABISCO BUTTER COOKIE NABISCO CHOCOLATE AND CHOCOLATE CHIP SNAPS NABISCO CHOCOLATE MELODIES COOKIE NABISCO DEVIL'S FOOD CAKES NABISCO GAIETY FUDGE CHOCOLATE SANDWICHES COOKIES NABISCO GIGGLES SANDWICH COOKIES NABISCO KETTLE COOKIES NABISCO MELODY COOKIES NABISCO SWISS CRÈME COOKIES NABISCO T.J.

Love the chocolate chip cookies in the little red box with the cookie cat face. Nabisco had them in the 70's. Loved the snap when you bit them. Also the flavor. Maybe a little espresso in them?...

Does anyone remember the commercials that guarantees more than 16 chocolate chips, in every Chips Ahoy cookie. . .'been counting more than 45 years
Rob Lambert - May 24, 2014 - Report this comment
Craig: YES!! Especially the ads with Cookie Man from the Saturday morning cartoon shows (circa 1967), including "Road Runner" and "Super President/Spy Shadow." Cookie Man emerged from a phone booth, floating in a bay, and fought oversized (costumed) sea monsters and the like. A W.C. Fields impersonator narrated each adventure.

Please bring back the chocolate chip snaps, chocolate snaps, ginger snaps, & Marshmallow cookies (begging) ,you still have the animal cookies out & we the public are grateful. There are other imitations out there, but, they will never beat a Nabisco made cookie never!!! @ least for those of us that remember them & can show our children, our children's children etc. Thanking you in advance!!

Diva E: You need to contact Kraft Foods. That company now carries Nabisco products. The toll-free number is: 1-800-431-1003. Direct questions to Consumer Products,or possibly, Product Development. You may have better luck convincing them to revive Chocolate Chip, Ginger Snaps and the like, than some of us had trying to revive Great Shakes.
