Does anyone remember Burry's Cookies? Wed, 03/24/04 10:18 AM (permalink)
As a kid, my grandmother would take me to the Burry's Cookie factory in Elizabeth, NJ.

The cookie I loved most from them were Fudge Towns. Two vanilla cookies sandwiching chocalte fudge cream that squirted out a litte from a hole in the middle. Man I am craving them somthing fierce.

Burry's used to also produce Girl Scout cookies i remember. Not sure for how big an area. But I do remember them being better than they are now.

Burry's is gone for sure, and so are Fudge Towns I think. Just wondering if anyone remembers this wonderful cookie company?

    While I'm not much of a cookie eater, I was not aware of Burry's being out of business.

      Burry's has been out of business for 20 years or so now. Have you seen products under that name?

        I recall that they also made fudgetown and scooter pies. I'm trying to remember the jingle. Meanwhile:

          Burry's Best chocolate chip cookies were a favorite of mine. And yes, Girl Scout Cookies were so much better when Burry made them. I miss them, too. But yes, I think they must be gone. I haven't seen any of their products for years.

              ah Burry's were the deal when I was living in Union,NJ, a stones throw(or these days,a AK47 round)from Elizabeth....these cookies were delightful and as someone said,when they made the girl scout cookies,it was another bit of heaven.

                Best darned cookies in the neighborhood.

                    I really liked a peanut butter filled Burry cookie sort of like a peanut cake cookie on the outsides and peanut butter type filling.
                    They were good. We used to get them from the old A & P in Troy N.Y.

                      Their Girl Scout cookies were much much better than the current producer's (baker's?).

                        Did Burry's produce all the Girl Scout cookies across the country? Oir was it simply an east coast thing?

                          I remember the fudgetown cookies. They were a scalloped shaped chocolate cookie with fudge in the middle. They were my favorite. Keebler had made one that was close to the fudgetown, but the cookie part wasn't as good. I had forgotten about the puppets though.

                                  Each Girl Scout council chooses which baker will supply its cookies, so Burry could have sold nationwide. I know we sold their cookies in Indiana for a while. I didn't know they were out of business, either.

                                    I agree that when Burry's made the GS cookies they were awesome. Unfortunately, that is no longer the case

                                        I remember that part of the song went..."they're baked, they're baked by brry's, so they're burry, burry good". I can hear the music in my head...but I guess that is an issue for another forum. I used to love to poke my pinky through the hole in the fudgetown cookies and push out the little chocolate cream piece, then chase my sister with it and tell her it was poop.

                                        Yes, I was a joy as a child

                                          yse i remember them-- but had forgotten about them till reading this thread... guess that's part of the reason i enjoy reading threads on here so much-- they bring back a lot of childhood (pleasant) memories and that's always a good thing.. unfortunately- some of the food that is being remembered (especially the food that's being FONDLY remembered) is no longer around... oh well-- time moves on ..

                                          loved the puppet!! cute! :)

                                            I remember Fudgetown cookies well. I have looked for them often over the year. I remember them made with 2 fudge flower shaped cooked with the fudge filling. I use to poke the icing out the center through the hole and eat that first as a kid. I really miss them too and yes the girlscout cookies were much better when made by Burry's. I am sorry to hear they are out of business. :(

                                              I don't know if anyone is still posting on the subject of Burry's cookies - but I just thought of them today - and decided to see if I could find any info on them.

                                              Mr. Chip Chocolate Chip cookies were my favorite and my brother loved Fudgetown! I'd forgotten about them until I read this. The jingle goes like this:

                                              "They're mixed and they're baked by Burry's so they're burry burry good!"

                                              I wondered if they were bought out by Nabisco? Or if they just went out of business!

                                              It was fun reading everyone's messages!! Thanks for the memories!

                                                I remember them too! Wow- I hadn't thought of them in years- they were good! The peanut butter cookies were called Gauchos. They must've gone out of business.

                                                  If my memory serves me correctly, Burry's was bought by a British or Canadian baking company and became Burry-Lu. Their cookies were never as good as the Burry's I remember as a kid. I don't think I've seen Burry-Lu for a while, though. My favorites were Scooter Pies.

                                                      Burry's made the cookies for Southern California when I was a GS in the '70s. The thins mints were different then and the trefoils had large sugar crystals on them.
                                                      What Burry called Gauchos for general sale were Savannahs (sp?) for Girl Scouts.

                                                        I did that with a lemon filled cookie. No idea what it was called. Haven't seen them in years...

                                                          Does anyone remember the Burry's Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies?? Everytime I open a package of Keebler cookies I think of Burry's and when i was a kid my mom would buy me a package of Burry's Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies every week when we went shopping. They were the best ever and second to none!!!!!! And fresh beyond belief too not the crap we have today. We grew up in an awesome time when things just tasted great. I remember when soda was made in a paper wedgie cup at the soda fountain with syrup and it tasted good too. And a 5 cent candy bar was a bar not a snack. Things sure has changed thru the years.
