Remember when SnackWell’s made their low-fat/fat free version of every single snack under the sun back in the mid 90s?
1. Fritz, Anne. “Food News.” Working Mother, January 1997, 65.
2. Dreisbach, Shaun. “Food News.” Working Mother, June/July 1996, 96.
3. New York Magazine, May 30, 1994, 38.
These and the vanilla sandwich cookies are the only original SnackWell’s products around. Anything else released in the 90s is loong gone.
Don’t forget the Cookie Man commercials, someone on YouTube was nice enough to create an anthology of the Cookie Man, they’re like a SnackWell’s product timeline.
The first commercial apologizes for the short supply of the Devil’s Food cookies. Look at the crackers in the background, too.
The chocolate sandwich cookies was a favorite of mine growing up. I’m not sure if they’re still around. I only saw one listing for them on amazon, but that doesn’t mean anything. I don’t see any pictures of them in the new packaging either.
I vaguely remember these being ok tasting. Probably ate gobs of boxes in middle school even if they just tasted “ok”.
Oh, these were butt. Moving on.
Oh, come on, SnackWell’s. This just seems to be a Devil’s Food version of the Double Fudge Cookie Cakes.
This commercial is only notable for NOT HAVING THE THREE STALKER LADIES IN IT. WHA’ HAPPENED, SNACKWELL’S?
I guess by then, SnackWell’s was trying to get on the Baked Lays train. Also, Cookie Man is married?
Oh, here we go. I feel like this spelled the beginning of the end of the SnackWell’s craze. I remember this yogurt, and how horrible it tasted. Maybe Nabisco overreached here.
There was a coffee one too, which gives me a headache just looking at this screenshot.
The yogurt tasted just like pudding, like pudding yogurt—-why make both. This commercial does bring back the three stalkers though.
These look dry as the Sahara.
I remember this grid pattern, these were in my lunchbag sometimes in middle school.
At one point, they wanted US to make our OWN SnackWell’s.
He even had SnackWell’s pajamas <3
