Not many other news breakthroughs would make me this happy. Kellogg's isn't letting Mother's Cookies fall by the wayside. Mother's Cookies—which has a huge West Coast fanbase due to its Oakland roots—filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in October, but this week, Kellogg's announced it would acquire trademarks and recipes to the famous Circus Animal cookies, as well as the sandwich cookies and wire-cut cookies.

Will the pink-frosted lions and elephants get along with the Keebler Elf and Snap, Crackle, and Pop trio? This sounds like the beginning of a wonderful new snack family.
