    In Baltimore besides the cookies you can get at local deli's, (ribbon cookies) the local treat you can get in the grocery stores are Berger cookies. Every week flying out of BWI I'll see folks carrying their packages of Berger cookies.

      About 10 years ago, my local Acme in Union County NJ carried a brand called Marietta cookies. The Oatmeal Raisin cookie was about the best store bought cookie I've ever had. In fact, it briefly elevated Acme from our 4th or 5th choice in Supermarkets to #1. Then they stopped carrying them. Been looking for them ever since.

      They were made at the Marietta bakery in Marietta Oklahoma. I did a web search and I've sort of been able to determine that over the ensuing years they were bought out by Keebler and then by some other conglomerate, so the cookies probably suck by now, but I'd sure like to know if they are still available. ---Ken.

          Famous Amos is my favorite. I remember when they first came out about 20 some years ago. The cookies were all different shapes instead of uniform shape like they are now.

          I do not like soft cookies at all though.

            Albertson's in house made brand. It's the only thing their bakery here does well..everything else from their bakery is pretty poor.

              Pepperidge Farm

              Milano
              Mint Milano
              Brussels
              The whole line is pretty good. I don't eat cookies anymore but I do buy the Pepperidge Farm Sesame Sticks and could pretty much consume the entire box.

                I always enjoyed Costco's bakery cookies, in particular, the white chocolate chunk ones. Then again, I prefer softer, chewier cookies.

                  It is true that Marietta Cookies were really good. A couple of years ago the plant shutdown due to bankruptcy of the corporate owners. They have restarted the plant now but I'm not sure under what brand. Here is a link to the local newspaper's story of the restarting. http://ardmoreite.com/stories/121704/mon_1217040021.shtml

                    Although I'm not sure if these cookies fit into this category, I have to say that the Doubletree Hotel cookies are YUUUUUUUUUMY!

                      180 degrees the other way. I just got a package of Kebbler soft Chocolate chip cookies free with a coupon. They are the worst packagaed cookies I have ever had. My wife each had one and tossed the bag out. They have no taste at all.
