When I was a kid, in the early nineties, late eighties, there was this cookie my grandma always had. It was like a little cookie dome, with chocolate fudge on the outside, and cookie crust, and one variety had like a chocolate cookie crust. i'm pretty sure keebler made it. does anyone remember this cookie, what it was called, and why it is no more? man i loved those frickin' things...

I remember the cookies,called Magic Middles.I guess they quit selling them due to a lessing demand for them.Years ago Keebler made tortilla chips ,made from thin flour tortillas that were good.But they stopped making them because of a decreasing demand.
Happens to a lot of products as consumers tates change.

Nope, magic middles looked like a regular cookie on the outside.
I absolutely know the ones you're talking about.
They looked like this one but had a kind-of star or pinwheel swirl on the top.


They were awesome.

These sound like Pinwheels to me. The stores still carry them, at least where I am, Connecticut. They are made by Nabisco. http://unbecominglevity.blogharbor.com/blog/_archives/2005/12/3/1432779.html

There are also the similar Mallomars, with a plain dome, and a graham/vanilla cookie base. Also made by Nabisco. http://www.nabisco.com/Brands/brandlist.aspx?SiteId=1&CatalogType=1&BrandKey=mallomars&BrandLink=/&BrandId=73&PageNo=1

For some reason, Nabisco only makes Pinwheels and Mallomars in the cooler months

And also limited distribution on Mallomars - mainly in the Northeast, like the
soup crackers that a few years ago were taken off the market, to a storm of
protests & brought back.

The reason they're only available in the cooler months is that the chocolate will melt. I had forgotten about these; better put them on my grocery list, now that I'm hungry for them.
