Nabisco Mallomars Cookies

Mallomars CookiesMallomars are wonderful, delicious, almost too good to be true cookies that I can’t buy in Seattle. On top of that, Mallomars aren’t sold year round. They’s only available in the cooler months. What’s a guy to do?

When I visit my Mom in OH I now where to buy Mallomars near her house. And I do. On one trip when I purchased 4 boxes, and nothing else, the cashier looked up at me and asked “These a gift for someone” Yep, Christmas presents for my 3 sons and 1 box extra for me. (They were a huge hit!)

The truly motivated DIYer can make counterfeit homemade Mallomars. Still not convinced these are a cult fave? Read the New York Times piece about mallomars.

Mallomar trivia: first made in 1913, the same year as the Moon Pie, in New Jersey. Available Oct-Apr an amazing 70% are sold in metropolitan New York. Which kinda sucks for me here in Seattle.

update Good news, Mallomars have been sited here in Seattle at Metropolitan Market in right here in West Seattle. Meanwhile they’re sold as Dream Puffs in Canada though I’ve never seen them when I’m in Vancouver.
