Pitter Patter Cookies

Pitter Patter cookies used to be one of my favorite after-school snacks. Here is a photo of a package of these cookies, which were made by Keebler.

Pitter Patter cookies were sandwich cookies filled with peanut butter creme. The cookies themselves were crunchy and made with oats. I liked to take them apart, eat one of the hard cookies, and then eat the remaining one with the peanut butter creme.

These were similar to Do-Si-Dos, the Girl Scout version of a peanut butter sandwich cookie. The main difference was that Pitter Patters were much harder and crunchier, whereas Do-Si-Dos tend to be crumbly and somewhat easier on the teeth.

Prontos Chips

In the mid-1970s, Frito Lay mailed out samples of Prontos chips in little boxes, and they were really good. I found a reference to the commercial from 1976.

Prontos were similar to the Sun Chips that are available now; they had the same shape, and I'm pretty sure they were also multigrain chips. They were very salty, and if I remember correctly, they were thicker and crunchier than Sun Chips. When looking up this product, I found that some people say they tasted like bacon. I never noticed that, so I can't say one way or the other, although I doubt I would have liked them if they had. I do like bacon but tend not to like meat-flavored products.

I like Sun Chips but would really like to see Prontos being manufactured again.

About Diary of a Non-Person

Dedicated to the canceled shows "nobody" watched, the discontinued products "no one" was buying, and the restaurants that closed down because "people" didn't eat there. Why? Because it happens to so many of my favorites.

About Me

My photo
My earliest memory of a career aspiration was to be a writer. My hobbies and interests include dogs, music, and spending time with my husband. I watch far too much television and seem to specialize in shows that don't get the ratings needed to stay on the air. An avid reader, I've been known to read several books a week.
