I love Pepperidge Farm products. The frozen cakes and cookies...yum.
Chessmen are a scam! A set of chessmen is 32 pieces, yet there are only 24 cookies in the package.
"Dry as the pope''s butthole."\
Bad as analogy. The pope''s butthole is kept well-lubricated at all times with a special lube made from the tears of deaf boys.
OP, it''s obvious you''ve been outvoted here.

The horsehead drives me wild!!!
Uh, thanks for making me think of the pope''s butthole, OP. And connecting it with Pepperidge Farm goodies. Why, dear God, why?
The Verona cookies are good, but everything they make is horribly overpriced.
That old New Englander who did the Pepperidge Farm commercials was gay. A friend did work on his house and his manager lived together and there was only one QUEEN sized bed in the house! I joke you not...\
The Tim Tams from Australia are great cookies(now being imported by sister company Pepperidge Farms into the US) for all of you who haven''t tried them yet.
is it still around? I haven''t seen it in years.
What are some other good brands?
This recipe is the best and highest use of Chessman cookies.
Ummm, love their coconut cake too. Another favorite (discontinued) was Nassau, a chocolate/peanut butter cookie.
I love their milk chocolate Milano cookies, can eat an entire package in one sitting. No, I''m not fat. I buy them every few months.
Mint Milanos. Mmmmm.
I love the entire Milano line.\
And I grew up on those delicious Ginger Man cookies.

They kill people in their sleep, you know.
More on the molasses cookies.
Obvious pr trolls. I wonder how many people with dry mouth have choked to death trying to eat a Pepperidge farm sandwich.
Molasses Crisp were the best cookies ever but they were discontinued years ago.

Discontinued? I heard it was suicide.
Milanos dipped in champagne, ahhh. I love their Milanos.
Does anyone know what happened to these cookies I don''t know what they were called but they were basically rolled up Milano cookies like tubes with nothing in them? I can''t find them anywhere now except in that giant package of assorted cookies but I could''ve sworn they used to be sold just by themselves at one point.
R27, were they sold in round tin cans? I seem to recall my mom having some.
R28, no, I don''t mean the pirouettes (sp?), I mean the rolled-up cookie in this photo. I think either I''m remembering wrong and they were never available by themselves or they''ve been discontinued.
Although I did hear that they came with something ''extra special'' which sent some people to the hospital.
R29, I remember those types of cookies(don''t know if they were PF or not), but I haven''t seen them in years.
The recipe in R16 is indeed very, very good. It''s actually the only Paula Deen recipe I consider successful. \
However, I suggest making it a day before you''re going to eat it because it tastes much better if it sits at least overnight. If you mix it all up and eat it right away, you often get an overwhelming taste of the cream cheese, which will put you off of trying it again later.\
Oh, and whip your own cream instead of using Cool Whip. I mean, you can use Cool Whip and it''s ok, but why not make your own?
I agree - dry, crumbly, overpriced crap. Even Girl Scout cookies are better and I hate those too.\
But does anyone remember their diet bread from the 70s/80s? It was 40 calories a slice and each slice was about a third the thickness of regular bread. It tended to be dry too, but I liked the thinness.
Goldfish are not wet. Goldfish are as dry as sandpaper.
Pass by the PF cookies and go straight for the LU section. Less Frankeningredients than PF.\
The Petit Ecoliers are very good, but the Petite Madeleines are divine. Divine, I tell you!
What brand is LU?
LU is an old French brand but was bought out by Kraft a couple of years ago. They haven''t fucked up the brand as of yet.
The only PF cookies I like are the ones called Sausalito. I could eat my weight in those.
Ooh, the LU Petit Ecoliers are super-yummy - and cute too! Haven''t tried Petit Madeleines before.
Decades ago, Pepperidge Farm baked cookies and cakes with real butter, eggs and other fresh ingredients. Sometimes in the 1960s, the company was sold to Campbell Soups. The decline in quality stared at that time.
Stared at what? Their newfound profits?
R27, if you don''t mind spending a lot of money for those plain rolled wafer cookies, check out Yoku Moku, a Japanese cookie company. Their stuff is made to be given as gifts so it''s pricey. Good stuff, though and no "frankeningredients" as a previous poster cleverly named them.\
Check out the listing of stores selling their stuff in the U.S.
Our store only carries Petit Ecolier. I love some with strong coffee. We also get Waffeletten wafers, and I have made people mad by openly referring to them as "Luft Wafer Cookies".
I remember eating PF apple turnovers when I was a kid. My dad had a weak spot for them. I always enjoyed it when he brought a box home from the grocery store. Haven''t had them in years now.
I love Pepperidge Farms cookies.\
I would sell my would sell my soul for a giant bag of Chessmen and Dark Chocolate Orange Milanos.\
However, I do thing their breads always seem stale and dry when compared to other items in the same price range. Especially their superthin sliced white or wheat. Just dry as all get out.
Binky, the "Lost" Von Trapp
When I was a kid I liked those turnovers too, R47. I was always burning my mouth on the super-hot filling because I wanted to eat them right out of the oven while they were still very puffy and crispy.
The bread is dry because it''s baked in central locations then shipped out frozen. It is by no means fresh like even the crappy french loaves baked in house by supermarkets.
No love for PF''s Bordeaux cookies? I would think they''d get a vote for the name alone. Not to mention their deliciousness.\
I grew up on LU Petite Beurres and still love them.
Thanks for the info R45 but oriental-made desserts always taste kind of funky to me. I''ll stick with the Milanos, but thanks anyway.
Does Pepperidge Farms make Madeleines?
Nothing like the smell of freshly baked cookies!
My parents bought Pepperidge Farms frozen turnovers when I was a kid. I loved those things when I was a kid, so tried them again as an adult. No joy.
There were never enough cookies in those sealed bags with the crinkly paper cups in them.
[quote]Our store only carries Petit Ecolier.
You only have one store available to you, R46?
I love anything made on a farm. It just tastes fresher.
Are their Pirouettes still around? Used to love those things with ice cream. Their Veri-Thin sliced white bread makes great bread pudding(thank you Maida Heatter) Hard to find though, I always have to ask the store to get the delivery guy to bring in a few loaves for me. I make a BIG bread pudding.
