What Are Some of the Cookies Discontinued by Nabisco?
Some cookies that were discontinued by Nabisco include Butter Cookies, Mystic Mints and Marshmallow Sandwiches. An assortment box containing the Kettle Cookie was also discontinued.
Nabisco Marshmallow Sandwiches were popular in the 1940s through the 1960s. Marshmallow Sandwiches were cookies with marshmallow sandwiched in the middle of cake-like cookies that many describe as having a marzipan flavor. Nabisco discontinued the cookies sometime in the 1970s and replaced them with the more popular Mallomars cookie.
Another cookie discontinued by Nabisco is Mystic Mints. These cookies were popular in the 1970s and were an Oreo-style cookie with softer cookie pieces and cream in the middle. The entire cookie was coated in chocolate mint icing. The flavor of the Mystic Mints is often compared to a Girl Scout Thin Mint or a mint flavored Oreo.
Nabisco also discontinued Butter Cookies, which had a round, flower shape with a hole in the middle. These cookies were similar to Danish butter cookies. Nabisco reportedly discontinued the cookies because they often broke in the packaging and were too expensive to produce.
Nabisco also used to sell assortment packages that are no longer produced. The assortment packs included several types of cookies and were marketed for families or parties because of the variety they offered. The packs included Oreos, Butter Cookies, Sugar Wafers and Kettle Cookies. The Kettle Cookie was only available in this assortment package, so it was no longer on sale at all after Nabisco discontinued the assortment pack.
