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?

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.

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.

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 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

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!

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.

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.

We often had Burry's cookies in the house and I can still remember where I was when I tasted my first Fudgetown cookie: on summer vacation, sitting at a picnic table, near Lake Ontario-- I was probably in 4th or 5th grade! We had seen the commercials and begged Mom to buy them and when she relented, I'd hurried through my lunch so I'd finally get to taste them. I also remember when my Mom later had them in the house, my sister would scrape out the chocolate icing, roll them into balls, put them in the fridge, and dab peanut butter on them for her own home-made PB cups. I hated that she could delay gratification that way! In later years, I preferred Keebler's chocolate fudge creme sandwich cookies to Fudgetown.

I remember liking those peanut butter Gauchos that someone mentioned. And since I was a Girl Scout in the '60's I remember selling their cookies way back then. And we sometimes persuaded Mom to buy Scooter Pies, too-- loved 'em.

Dearfolk,
Strikes me that Burry's was family-owned and had a caveat that when they ran out of family willing to run the business that they had to sell to whoever the highest bidder was and turn around and walk away.
It will be interesting to find out the entire truth. Their products were excellent.

Burry's. I'm sure i remember them and ate them because I have been on a quest to find an image of a package. Somehow the name crept out from the shadow of my youth and wanted to be remembered. I'm 40 and live in Columbus, OH. Here is what comes to mind.

The Burry's logo. I have seen 2 Burry's package images and they don't ring a bell. The word Burry's I recall was in a paisley shaped outline. Maybe I did have the Girl Scout Cookies because after reading the posts here the name Gauchos also rings a bell.

As cookies/cereal/tv were a great part of mine/ours? childhood this has stayed with me and demands to be solved.

Any input?

Thanks!

I have seen that one and do not recall it. I know the Burry's I had had a different font and the logo / name Burry's was in some sort of paisley shap like outline. Perhaps it was th Gauchos as that name sounds familiar. Never had those fudge ones. The ones I da were either Peanut Butter or Chocolate with Choclate icing but round.

The name of that cookie reminds me of one of the lines that Mae West was able to sneak past the censors. In one of her films, this bit of humor was even more risque than usual, and it was also racist--but the fact that it made it past the censors is the most amazing thing of all.

Ready?

Mae is on the phone with her Chinese Laundryman. She inquires about when he is coming over to pick up the dirty laundry. He answers, "Okay Miss West, I be at your house lickety-split". (I told you that it was racist!) Mae's answer was, "Never mind doing that, just come over and pick up the laundry". Amazing, from several perspectives.

I LOVED Fudgetowns. I also remember poking out the fudge in the center and eating it first. My brothers and I talk about those frequently. We all loved 'em. You would think that since Burry went out of business some other cookie company would have bought the rights/recipe for them. Many people fondly recall Burry's Best cookies

I grew up on Fudgetowns, Gauchos, Mr. Chips, and later, Burry's Best. Keebler makes a version of the Fudgetown, but, to my absolute horror, I can no longer find the fudge cookie/fudge cream combo. They have awful butter and peanut butter products. How cruel! Gawd, do I miss those Fudgetowns! Brown box, cowboy with lasso drawing.

I remember Fudgetown and Gauchos real well, growing up in NJ in the 60's. I also remember the first Burry's chocolate chip cookies (before Mr. Chips) coming in 4 small sleeves per box -- crunchy, not chewy, cookies....mmmmmm!! I think the box depicted loads of chocolate chips on it. Your history of Burry's to Burry-Lu then to Salerno sounds right to me. The current Girl Scout peanut butter sandwich cookies are the Gauchos, with much less of the taste.

OK, how about Nabisco's Melody Cookies and Marshmallow Sandwiches? Melody Cookies were like chocolate snaps with sugar crystals and the Marshmallow Sandwiches were two Nilla wafers with a sticky marshmallow filling. Blue box with paper cover that you sliced open to get to the two rows of cookies. Sort of a Mallomar without the chocolate.

I grew up eating Fudgetown cookies, and ate them as an adult too, until one day they disappeared. (I used to like to push the chocolate circle in the middle out with my tongue.) I have tried eating chocolate-filled Oreos, but they just aren't the same. The chocolate cream in the Fudgetown cookies was so, so, ....I can't describe the texture. Maybe something like spackle?

I was in Canada about 10 years ago and bought some cookies made by Dare:

http://www.darefoods.com/Products/Cookies/Ultimate/ultimate_milk_chocolate_fudge.aspx

I don't remember if they really tasted like Fudgetown cookies, but if you're desperate, they're worth a true. Perhaps one of our Canadian friends can send some across the boarder! You'll note that Dare also makes something that looks suspiciously like a Mallomar....

I loved Scooter Pies too. Mmmmmm. I have tried Moon Pies, but they just aren't the same....

Burry chocolate chip, those in the longer white package, were the absolute best growing up in NJ. When I used to return to NJ in the 80's, and looked for the stuff you could not find in the South at the time (Taylor Ham, Tastee Cakes, Drakes,...), I would look for Burry cookies - - never found them again. When I first saw Moon Pies in Georgia, I matter-of-factly said, "scooter pies". I loved those things (Moon Pies are not bad either).

We always used to buy Burry's Assortment, which had six kinds of cookies in it. I now only remember three -- Gaucho, Mr. Chips, and Fudge Town. I think one was a lemon sandwich, but still don't remember more yet. Any ideas
