Has anyone else enjoyed the delicious albeit mysterious three-pack of either the oatmeal or "choco-chip" cookies made by Peggy Lawton?



No. Not the "Mod Squad's" Peggy Lipton...



...but Peggy Lawton as in Peggy Lawton Kitchens in Walpole, Massachusetts. In addition to being downright cheap (@ 50-cents for a three-pack), they're visually a fairly ubiquitous snack and often available in vending machines as well as pretty much a staple via Washington, D.C.'s street vendors but, boy, are they good!

The oatmeal cookies are more like a spice cookie with just the right amount of salt. The Massachusetts company does not have a website and a web search revealed only two things: (1) Peggy Lawton Kitchens is a frequently cited business on the subject of trade secret law; (2) and there's a fair amount of people whom are equally fans of this fine fare.

Anyone else out there?

No, but that packaging looks like it could have been on the Mod Squad set...

I grew up in Newton, Mass (many, many years ago). I loved the Peggy Lawton Chocolate Chip cookies, but when I moved to NJ about 30 years ago I could not find them anywhere here. A few years ago I discovered that the closest place to here to get them is the Mobil station on the Merritt Parkway in Greenwich, CT. Now, whenever we go to New England, I stock up on the way home just before entering NY. One time, we bought 20 packages, cleaning them out. My friends know to stop and get them when they are in the area.

I don't know if I like them because they are good, or just nostalgia, but I do.

Does anyone know if they are available by mail through any website? I haven't located any such sites.

Thanks,
Stan

I work in downtown Philadelphia, PA. I have the advantage of having
sidewalk vendors on practically every corner. Many of them carry
these cookies! So if you want to come over the bridge, you won't be disappointed. The vendors usually leave by 2PM.

Also, I've heard that BJ's Wholesale Club carries the cookies. Good luck!

I work in center city Philadelphia as well, and eys, evey street cart here has these cookies. they are misterious in origin and the marketing appears to be from 20 years ago at least, but hte aotmeal ones are GOOOOOOOOOOOOD....


My question is this: HOW MANY CALORIES DO THEY HAVE??? there is no nutritional info on them (isn't that illegal these days?) and since i love to torture myself with guilt after downing 304 packages, i would like to know how many caloreis that is.

Other forums that I have visited allow the author of a post to edit an entry for a limited amount of time. After that time, it becomes read only. Maybe this forum is the same.

I work in NY, so getting to a street vendor by 2:00 will be a challenge. However, I believe there is a BJ's a few miles away (we normally use Sam's Club), so that is a possibility.

I have been eating Peggy Lawton chocolate chip cookies in the cellophane 3-packs all my life, except when living in an area that doesn't have them (Florida, Texas). I grew up in and around Boston mostly, and they are still available practically everywhere. 304 packages may have been a typo to ivelina, but I'd bet I've eaten at least that many over the years.

With much anticipation, we went over to the local BJs (Hamilton, NJ) the other day. I couldn't find them anywhere and was very disappointed. I asked a few different employees and they didn't think they carried them, either.

We have a friend who goes up to Connecticut frequently. We gave her $20 and told her to stock up whenever she has a chance. We'll treat it like EZPASS; when the account is depleted we'll replenish it with her!

This is so funny - I'm also a Peggy Lawton cookie addict. When I was going to UMass-Boston, I used to have a Peggy Lawton cookie pack after lunch every day. But near San Francisco I can't get them, so every time I fly east to visit my family south of Boston, I stock up with several dozen of the oatmeal cookie packs. I even tried contacting the company to see if they would ship me a case to California, with no success. If there is any place that would ship a carton out here I'd order a box!

I was saddened to read that Lawton Wolf, founder of Peggy Lawton Kitchens, died last week at 93. Following is his obiturary from the Boston Globe.


THE BOSTON GLOBE SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2004
Obituaries

Lawton D. Wolf, at 93; owner of baked-goods company
By Tom Long
Globe Staff

Lawton D. Wolf was a man who knew a good thing then he saw it: First when he met and married Peggy Hannah and then when he tasted her fudge brownies.

The couple parlayed those home-baked goodies into Peggy Lawton Kitchens and a line of cellophane-wrapped treats that are convenience store staples from Maine to Washington, D.C., and comfort foods to many.

Mr. Wolf, 93, who died Wednesday in his home in Needham, was the businessman behind Peggy Lawton Kitchens, a line that now includes brownies, oatmeal cookies, chocolate chip cookies, and several other snacks.

The company, which he founded in 1949, employs about 40 and produces as many as 200,000 cookies and 200,000 brownies each day at its Walpole plant.

Mr. Wolf had a paternal relationship with employees, many of whom worked for him for decades.

‘Everyone loved him;’ Robert Willis, office manager of Lawton Kitchens, said yesterday. “He was very gentle in his approach to everyone and very caring. It was always a joy to see him."

Peggy Lawton baked goods are comfort food to many who remember the confections from childhood.

Willis said dozens have arranged to have the baked goods shipped to soldiers in Iraq to remind them of home.

A series of postings on the Roadfood.com website attest to their popularity.

One displaced New Englander wrote of stopping at a gas station on the Merritt Parkway in Connecticut and buying 20 packages of the chocolate chip cookies to take home.

Another wrote of visiting Boston from San Francisco and returning with several dozen packages of the oatmeal cookies.

In the beginning, there was the fudge brownie and a luncheonette in Dedham operated by Mr. and Mrs. Wolf for several years in the 1940s. It was called The Sampler and business was up and down, but one constant was the popularity of Mrs. Wolf’s brownies.

The couple decided to close the restaurant and open a commercial bakery in 1949.

“With Lawton’s business sense and Peggy’s recipe, it was a joint endeavor from the beginning," the couples son, William of Walpole, said yesterday.

They joined their first names to name the company, which is now operated by their son.

A sharp dresser with an ever-present ascot, Mr. Wolf was the only child of a steam locomotive mechanic and a homemaker who raised him in Trenton, N.J.

He graduated from Ryder University in Lawrenceville, N.J., in 1932.

He met Peggy Hannah at a meeting of the Plymouth Brethren, an evangelical Christian group. The couple married in 1935 at the height of the Great Depress ion and took a steamboat up the Hudson River to Vermont for their honeymoon.

Mr. Wolf did editorial work for Reader’s Digest before becoming a production supervisor at the Wright Aeronautical Co. in Cincinnati and at later Holtzer-Cabot Electric Co. in Boston.

Mr. Wolf was fond of big-band music and spent several months each winter at the Lawrence Welk resort in Escondido, Calif.

“He was a very kind man who was very strong in his convictions;’ his daughter, Kathleen of Hoover, Ala. said yesterday. “He worked hard every day to his promises to my mother and provide a living for my family to build a business, and to be a witness for his religion.

In addition to his wife, son, and daughter, he leaves six grand children.

A funeral service will be held today [9/25/2004] at 10:30 am, in Dover Church in Dover, He will be buried in Highland Cemetery in Dover.

Thanks for the post, rosest. How sad. However, it was interesting to read the specific RoadFood.com mentions in the middle of the Globe's obituary, above.

Hello folks.

I'm new to Roadfood.com. Actually I was just doing a Google search for Peggy Lawton and up came this forum with this interesting discussion about the company. I am a big fan of the cookies and brownies and also a friend of Bill Wolf, son and owner of the company. The company has always been very quality conscious. Products are made without preservatives. The oatmeal cookie is my own favorite.

I know it would please Bill that Peggy Lawton has many old fans. It would do his heart good, if anyone wanted to write or call him, to tell him how much you enjoy his stuff.

Here's the address:

Peggy Lawton Kitchens Inc., PO Box 33, East Walpole, MA 02032-0033, Phone: 508-668-1215

First, you're the first person to ever label a discussion on this board "interesting."

Secondly, please pass on all of the above posters' (and many others) condolences to the Wolf family.

Thirdly, let the family also know, by sharing this thread perhaps, as to just how many diehard Peggy Lawton fans are out there.



A great product with a great following!

WOW I am so grateful to this discussion board as I was able to locate and contact Peggy Lawton Kitchens and I will now be able to buy these great cookies. I was raised in the Philadelphia suburbs and whenever I was not prepared for school lunch for many reasons I usually got a quarter from somewhere and either got a soft pretzel or Peggy Lawton cookies. These cookies (chocolate chip) are so much a part of history that it would be traumatic if I could never find them. Luckily I just found a gas station on my way home from Delaware in Philadelphia that had them and I bought them out. I ate the last cookie and started to panic and searched the internet that is what brought me here. I got the 800 phone number fans............

I would add that this is an 'interesting' discussion. I grew up in Walpole, MA where the Peggy Lawton cookies are made. That said, I would consider them a 'quiet' company as they were really never in the news or advertised or anything. All I really know is that their facility is in an old movie theatre - at least that's what I've heard.
I love their choc and double chocolate chip cookies. If anyone is interested, I could probably buy some cookies etc in bulk from them or elsewhere and ship them to desperate folks :)
I dunno...just trying to help! :))
(my parents still live in Walpole.)

I live in central MA but I had forgotten about Peggy Lawtons until this thread got me thinking about them....so today I happened to see some and I picked up a brownie and a pack of chocolate chip cookies....both were AWESOME....the cookies were MUCH tastier than chips ahoy or other packaged cookies....I found myself liking them more than even "upscale" packaged choc chip cookies like Fiels and Amos...


Does anyone know what all different products Peggy LAwton produces?

And are there any MA chains that carry them? I only see them in sub/pizza shops, but its hit or miss...

I am an addict for over 20 years. There have been times when the craving overpowered the need for calmness in order to open the package and has resulted in broken cookies on the floor. If only the company would incorporate a plastic rip cord around the circumference to facilitate opening, there would be less cookies eaten off the floor.

Hi again. Good to see fans of Peggy Lawton still posting.

I am now munching on a package of the Choco-Chips ones. Most excellent but I still think my favorite are the Oatmeal. To answer someone's question of what they carry:

Oatmeal Cookies
Chocolate Chip Cookies
Butter Crunch Cookies
Date Delight (not sure if this a cookie or what)
Fudge Brownies

Great stuff. Now I wish I had bought another package.

Good munchings to you,

I pretend to buy them for my kids but my husband and I eat many of them. They are sooooooooo good!

Luckily I live close enough to find them, although some markets are no longer carrying them. The prices have gone up as well but they are definitely worth it. I was told they don't want to work with the little guy! I hope they never go out of business.

Just in case anyone is wondering...the Fudge Brownies have 250 calories, 11 grams of fat and 1 gram of fiber in them, which equals 6 points if you are doing weight watchers. YIKES!!! Too bad I ate the brownie first and then inquired about the nutritional info

I love the choc-chip. You can buy 12 3 packs of the choco-chip in Costco for around $4 and change. Bakery quality,consistent and delicious. Also try the Butter Crunch 3 packs. Always a bargain at 75 cents or less a pack.

Hi,
I've been eating Peggy Lawton Chocolate Chip Cookies since high school back in 1968. I'd always eat a package in either "study-hall" or just before my "track meets". They were $0.15 a package then. I think they changed the recipe since then.....they are still delicious but taste different than they did back in the 60's. I was wondering if anyone knows if they changed the recipe. When I was in the Army stationed at Ft. Benning, I wrote the company and they sent me a case for free. I buy them now at BJ's.

My Uncle and Grandfather as well as myself and various other members of my family have also worked there over the years. So it is so incredibly wonderful to hear there are people out there enjoying what this small local business has to offer!

Having said that, I would be more than happy to take any orders from anyone for various products. It would be my pleasure to keep the tradition going!

Hi everyone, I grew up in Braintree Mass. and I LOVED the choco chip cookies ! I now live in Atlanta and I cannot buy them here.
I went home for a family reunion a few weeks ago and I stocked up.

Somehow I found this website and someone out there gave a 1-800 # for the Peggy Lawton Kitchens in Walpole, MA.
Well, I called and 3 days later I had 2 12 packs of Chocolate Chip cookies at my door !!!!

The # is: 1-800-843-7325.

Two 12 packs with shipping is only $18.00. I am so thrilled that they offer home delivery. Thank-you Ellen at P.L. Kitchens, You are awesome !!!!!

I didn't know the name of them when I used to occassionally get the chocolate chip cookies at suburban Phila. college in the early '70's. I just knew I liked them. When I transferred to Syracuse U., I don't remember if I could find them there.

Fast-forward to two years ago during a vacation on Cape Cod and I found a package of the 3 chocolate chip cookies at the "Brewster Store". I sure did enjoy stepping back in time as I savored those cookies with a cup of coffee and pondered how fast thirty years had flown by.

OK,

This is great! I have also looked for a place on the web to find out more about Peggy Lawton products, and here it is.

I grew up on Cape Cod in the 60s and my dad ran the beach stands in Falmouth. He was always well stocked with Peggy Lawton cookies, oatmeal and chocolate chip, brownies and a not too often seen date macaroon square. I still see the date squares every once in awhile and when I do I pick up 4 or 5. For those of you who have not tried these, let me tell you they are as good as the cookies (If you like date squares)

I would like to see a full list of the products they make. I know there are some products that show up infrequently. I will try and get a complete list of their products and post them here. Or perhaps someone from the company will read this and post a complete list.

I, like many of you am frustrated that I cannot find the product as easy as I have in the past. It does seem at least in my area there are fewer and fewer vendors. Too bad because it is truly a great product that more people need to try…

I was browsing for Peggy Lawton cookies because I just downed my 4th package - they sell them in the vending machine at work in Charlestown, MA. I took for granted that these were available everywhere but after reading the posts, I'm glad I haven't moved out of New England!

So, I was looking for nutrition info (because of the 4 pkg problem) and was soooo thrilled to see that they're only 200 cal a package. That's nothin'!

I don't know how they get the recipe just right of sweet with just a touch of noticeable saltiness (could that be?).

I loved the fudge brownies when I was little, they sold them at school, but haven't had one in years, I'll have to get a couple and see if they still do it for me.

I just came back from 8 days on Cape Cod and I looked for Peggy Lawton cookies at the Brewster Store where I'd bought them in the past but none were to be found. I searched in the 3 large supermarkets in Orleans where we stayed, but no dice.

I figured I might have better luck at some of the small markets at gas stations or the "Superettes" (sp?)-- little stores we passed on routes 6 and 6A. It began to be a joke as I'd ask my husband to pull in to a market that looked promising only to return to the car empty-handed. And it began to appear that this vacation would forever be labeled "The Great Peggy Lawton Cookies Search". I almost gave up until I asked him to pull into a little market in Brewster. I had looked all through the store and was about to leave when I spied a coffee urn with goodies stacked nearby.

And there they were. Stacks of Peggy Lawton's cellophaned goodness! I bought two packages each: chocolate chip, oatmeal, and buttercrunch, and hoisted the bag HIGH in triumph as I walked to the car, with Mr. D-L shaking his head and rolling his eyes as he laughed. I finished the last package of oatmeal cookies today, dunked in milk and savored until our next trek to the Cape.

I grew up in Billerica, MA. These cookies were my daily lunch ritual!! Thank goodness for this forum, because I've ordered them twice since finding the 800 number here! They deliver super-fast, too.

Thanks


The Market Basket at the intersection of Princeton Blvd and Route 3A in Lowell has the Peggy Lawton cookies and brownies on sale: 3 packages for 99 cents!

Rosest--when you mentioned Hamilton, I looked at your profile and I see you live in Lawrenceville. I think I may have some good news for you! A few months ago, I was taking a training class for work at the Mercer County Community College Center for Development. Since we only had 30 min for lunch, we ran over to the student cafeteria. Guess what they had at the register?? Yup--Peggy Lawton cookies. Believe you me, I bought plenty (though my co-workers thought it was pretty odd). Let me know if you get to go!

Ah!! Choco-Chip cookies - and Oatmeal, yummy and Buttercrunch....But wait, they no longer make the Peanut Butter!!! Say it ain't so...I am also a former Newton resident....And now live in Delaware..I don't get back very often but when I do, I drag my friend around and we try to find the cookies!! If you saw "Over the Hedge" remember Hammy and his comment "I love the cookie"...well...that's how I am about these...I have a BJ's near me in New Castle, and I haven't seen them there..but, I will see about asking at the desk for them. Since BJ's is based in the Boston area, who knows?? Maybe by asking we can get them....So, BJ members plan of attack across the country, go to your BJ's and ask, no demand that they get Peggy Lawton cookies!!I got some at Thanksgiving and just ate the last package today!!!" /> So, I'm going to be on a withdrawal if I can't find any!!
And rosest - I wonder if you are the Stan I knew from Newton South?!?!?!
Later!!!
