Maybe it’s the abundance of candy that is sure to send us straight to the dentist, but Halloween has a way of making everyone feel like a kid again. You’re about to feel even more like a kid now, because Mother’s Circus Animal Cookies now come in a Halloween version. And you don’t even need to go trick-or-treating to get them.

It appears that Mother’s had released Halloween cookies over 10 years ago. The orange and white frosted cookies, however, were in the shape of regular circus animals. The new and improved version features cat- and bat-shaped cookies that are covered in orange and white frosting and circular rainbow sprinkles.

Instagram account and blog The Impulsive Buy recently posted a picture of the Mother’s Halloween Circus Animal Cookies at Dollar General. They’re also listed on Dollar General’s website, but it doesn’t appear like they’re store-exclusive, since 30-pouch box is also listed at

BevMo!, a liquor store in California, Washington, and Arizona. Now that’s the ultimate treat to hand out on Halloween.

Although we don’t have any reason to believe that the orange frosting tastes any different from the typical pink, you know we can’t resist a festive snack. And who are we kidding? Any reason to eat cookies is good with us.
