Pepperidge Farm

Everything they do is dry dry dry. Dry as the pope's butthole.

The frozen coconut cake is my kryptonite.

They make great Gingerman cookies and Molasses cookies. Oh and their Chessmen.

OP is Donna Mills.

I love Pepperidge Farm. I miss the Capri and Lido cookies.

by Anonymousreply 304/25/2010

Their 'Chessmen' cookies are a better than decent shortbread cookie, and not 'dry' -- there are better certainly, but of the Pepperidge Farm cornucopia of products, I'll stick by these.

by Anonymousreply 404/25/2010

The bread is dry and crumbly.

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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 1204/25/2010

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.

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.

And I grew up on those delicious Ginger Man 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.

Milanos dipped in champagne, ahhh. I love their Milanos.

by Anonymousreply 2604/25/2010

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.

by Anonymousreply 2704/25/2010

R27, were they sold in round tin cans? I seem to recall my mom having some.

by Anonymousreply 2804/25/2010

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.

by Anonymousreply 2904/25/2010

I love their Alyssa Milano cookies.

by Anonymousreply 3004/25/2010

W&W r30!

Although I did hear that they came with something 'extra special' which sent some people to the hospital.

by Anonymousreply 3104/25/2010

R29, I remember those types of cookies(don't know if they were PF or not), but I haven't seen them in years.

by Anonymousreply 3204/25/2010

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?

by Anonymousreply 3304/25/2010

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.

by Anonymousreply 3404/25/2010

Ahem. WET!

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!

by Anonymousreply 3704/25/2010

What brand is LU?

by Anonymousreply 3804/25/2010

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.

by Anonymousreply 3904/25/2010

Thank you, those cookies look good.

by Anonymousreply 4004/25/2010

The only PF cookies I like are the ones called Sausalito. I could eat my weight in those.

by Anonymousreply 4104/25/2010

Ooh, the LU Petit Ecoliers are super-yummy - and cute too! Haven't tried Petit Madeleines before.

by Anonymousreply 4204/25/2010

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.

by Anonymousreply 4304/25/2010

Stared at what? Their newfound profits?

by Anonymousreply 4404/25/2010

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.

by Anonymousreply 4504/25/2010

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.

by Anonymousreply 4704/26/2010

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.

by Anonymousreply 4804/26/2010

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.

by Anonymousreply 4904/26/2010

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.

by Anonymousreply 5004/26/2010

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.

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.

I'm sure they spend more on the puffy packaging than those sawdust things they crank out. It makes fraus think they're eating something 'exclusive', a cut above the rest.

by Anonymousreply 6212/02/2012

I have been eating these pastries for years. I have noticed in the last 3-4 years that the pastry is not as flaky or tasty. Has there been change in the recipe?

Of all the Pepperidge Farms cookies (current and discontinued) the best of all-time were the Nassau's...hands-down, second-to-none and bar-none!

OP needs to slapped across his rude face with a bag of their delicious Raisin Swirl Bread. It is like crack.

by Anonymousreply 6607/12/2013

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.
