Does Nabisco still make Lemon Coolers cookies? (The ones covered in powdered sugar that had a light lemon taste.) My mom tried to find them after my dad requested them, but none of our stores have them anymore! Does anyone know a recipe for something similar? Thanks!
I finally found them. If you have a dollar general store in your area, they just started stocking them, the originals, too.
I just bought some very similar cookies today at Wal-Mart. They're called Lemon Cookies and are from Niche Foods. I too was looking for Lemon Coolers about a month ago and was so surprised to find these (made a little scene when I excitedly grabbed the only box). They're smaller but taste just about the same. A favorite from childhood. :)
Im looking for the Lemon Coolers why would they stop making those!
Sunshine Lemon Coolers ceased to exist when Keebler acquired Sunshine Bakery, as most of us know.
I think that all Keebler products should be dropped from our shopping list. It's time to put a stop to corporate greed
controlling what we want or need. A boycott, blackmail if will, until they return Lemon Coolers and Hydrox.
Revolt, it has to start somewhere, the time is now. We are all the consumers after all!

This is one of my favorite cookies. Sometimes I add some of the
lemonade powder to the cookie dough and add more to the powdered
sugar to make them very lemony.

Vermont Country Store sometimes finds old recipes for things we
had as kids. They have a web site and an 800 number.
recipe.html">bigoven.com This is a good site for similar taste, but nothing beats the
original for sure. I miss them. (07/10/2008)
They were made by Sunshine which was bought by Keebler. Keebler
then decided to discontinue them. Darn those elves! (08/25/2008)
I found something that's almost a dead ringer for lemon coolers.
They're called Lemon Cookie Straws, made by Archer Farms. They
can only be found at Target. But just thought I'd throw that out
Archway now makes a really close resemblance, called Iced
Lemonade. They have a that really great flavor, only in a much
more "crispy" cookie, rather than the familiar vanilla wafer

My husband and I found Key Lime Coolers on the internet
available from the Byrd Cookie Company, Inc. in Savannah,
Georgia and they are delicious. We ate 6 ounces in nothing flat
and another, bigger order is on the way as I type this! byrdcookiecompany.com (09/26/2008)
Best recipe I have found yet:
Sunshine Lemon Coolers
and continue mixing until dough forms a ball.
lemonade drink mix in a large plastic bag and shake thoroughly
are hot, add 4 or 5 at a time to the bag and shake it until the
cookies are well coated. Repeat with the remaining cookies.
Loved those Sunshine lemon coolers. I found a cookie that is
almost as good.

OK guys! I found a cookie which immediately made me feel like i
was eating our old favorite, the Lemon Cooler. They are called
Lemon Tea Cookies and are available at Costco. They are made by
Sweet Williams. They are in a dark sage green bag. Man O man!
Delicious. Go get them. You have to pick up two bags. One for
in the car for the ride home and one for when you recover from
sheer bliss! Post your take on them. (12/20/2009)
Love the Lemon Coolers - reminds me of childhood and eating way
I have tried the Sweet William lemon cookies and they are
really divine! They're more crumbly and tea cookie like than
the LCs. No crunchy lemon bits, but I still couldn't help myself
and had to have my folks hide them so I wouldn't eat their
entire bag (and I'm not a food addict).
They bought theirs over the holidays at a SoCal Costco store,
but my mom thinks they were a Christmas item. I concur since I
haven't seen them in mine in NoCal. Supposedly Whole Foods might
be carrying them depending on your area.
Enjoy! I'm off to Google them and see what happens.
I have found that the Niche Foods brand Lemon Cooler cookies are
a very close second to the ones we know and love! I found them
at Dollar General for two dollars a box! The only real
difference that I can tell is that they don't have the same
coolness factor as the Sunshine ones. But I'm satisfied to have
finally found something that is close! (08/23/2010)
I do love those Lemon Coolers. Found the Archway Iced Lemonade
cookies just today and I am eating them right now as I type.
Very good stand-in for the LC's. However, those little bits of
tart lemon were just heaven and I miss the true Lemon Coolers
and the frosted white fingertips after eating them! :o)
