Description
These came in a pink bag. There were two flavors, one row of each: one was a chocolate sandwich cookie with vanilla lemon creme and the other was a vanilla cookie with vanilla lemon creme. These were so awesome! I wanted some so bad that I even emailed Keebler to ask if they had any plans to bring them back. The answer was no. These were my absolute favorite cookies.

I really miss eating those opera creme cookies. Nabisco's bring back some of their cookies from the past. Keebler you all should do the same.

Best cookies ever. It would be foolish on Keebler"s part to not bring them back. The older generation was the one who bought them the most & we number in the millions now. Check the Social Security rolls

I remember these from long before the eightys -- I crave them all the time. I really wish that they would be reissued - even if just for a short while - so that I could enjoy them once more... and introduce them to my offspring.

Hi, My husband and I were talking about how good the Opera Cream cookies used to be and I started craving them. Please bring them back again. They would be well received. There is nothing like them on the market today that I have found. Thank You.

Opera Cremes were poor man's cocaine. I defy anyone to eat just one, not one bag, one cookie. No one cranks out a masterpiece like those elves did. Buckets and his Fudge stripes-meh, Sam and his peanutbutter cookies-#2 cookie, and the rest of those elves running around the tree factory...they can't crank out a couple bags of opera cremes? I mean, they bake the Girl Scouts cookies, intro operas as a new Girl Scout cookie, those kids would sell so many they would be going on trips to Hawaii. Now where are my Thin Mints(grasshoppers)!

If you are really interested in getting Keebler to make these delicious cookies again. Contact the company. There is a phone number and an address on their website. Personally I have been looking everywhere for them, I thought maybe it may have been a regional thing.

I miss those cookies soooo much... there are no really good and big lemon creme cookies out there anymore... the only way I've been able to satisfy my fix is with the Murray Lemon Cremes... which are okay but no where near as awesome as the Opera Cremes... Oh how I miss you my favorite cookies!!! Bring them back PLEASE!!!!

I can't agree more with the previously posted comments. These were my favorite cookie to. Not only did you get the lemon cream between the cookie but you also had a choice between the chocolate or vanilla cookie. These were delicious and enjoyed with a cold glass of milk. When I was a child I used to like separating the two cookie halves, licking the lemon cream and then pressing the lemon cream (that remained)through each of the holes. Oh, those childhood memories and how much they mean today. Please Keebler bring this cookie back. You had a great product and it would sell again with no problem.

I've never heard of these, or can't place them to the name anyway. It seems like chocolate and lemon would be a really yucky pairing. But I guess not?

Oh my gosh, I thought I was the only one that craved those cookies, I was on the website 2 years ago looking for those cookies. I even e-mailed the company asking where I could find them. Looks like I could not find them cause they were discontinued. Just talking about them I can still taste them.

Opera Cremes were also my favorite cookie growing up. My craving was so bad I kept a bag with me most of the time and would share only the chocolate cookies with my friends. I kept the vanilla ones which were my favorite for myself. Sometimes I'd buy the larger bag that contained 36 cookies--2 columns of chocolate and 1 column of vanilla. Sometimes I'd get really lucky and choose the bag with 2 columns of vanilla and 1 column of chocolate. Oh what a treat that was. I have never forgotten how much I loved those cookies many times searching for them in every city I've visited. They were my favorite!
Courtney - January 12, 2011 - Report this comment
Opera Cremes were the all time BEST cookie EVER!! Me, my mom & sisters were all addicted to them. They loved the chocolate & I loved the vanilla! I even remember the time they made a bag with only chocolate & my sisters went nuts! A bag never lasted a day in our home. Everytime I'm craving a cookie I think of these & reminded how great they were. We often tell stories to our kids & friends who never had a chance to try them about how great they were. I look for them everytime I visit a store for the first time & even in my hometown stores hoping I will catch them on the shelf for a limited time. I would buy all that my money would allow!!! Like the Girl Scout Cookie, I wish this cookie would be placed back on shelves in stores once or even twice a year to satisfy cravings. ( a win win situation) KEEBLER, if you wont bring Opera Cremes back into stores will you at least make them available to purchase online?

My goodness!!! I had no idea that so many other people missed this Opera Creme cookie as I have for so many years. My sisters and I would always purchase a batch of Opera Creme cookies when going on a trip enough to last the whole trip. As we always purchase them weekly just to eat and enjoy. My next sister and I often talk about how good these Opera Cremes were and still wish for them and still wondered for year what happen to our favorite cookie. Why was the best cookie ever was taken off the shelves at the grocery store? There has not been another cookie so good as the Opera Cremes. Please bring them back. My sisters and I would really love it. Please, Please, Please. Do it for all of us. We all will be so happy and will keep the business going. Please atleast put them in the stores at twice a year.

THERE IS NO OTHER COOKIE IN THE WORLD LIKE THE OPERA CREAM!!!!!!!! I CRAVE THEM ALL THE TIME. THE FIRST THING I WOULD BUY WHEN I ENTERED THE GROCERY STORE WAS MY BAG OF COOKIES. I INTRODUCE THEM TO MY DAUGHTER WHEN SHE A LITTLE GIRL AND SHE STILL REMEMBER HOW GOOD THEY WERE. SHE TELL HER FOUR CHILDREN ABOUT THEM BUT IT HARD TO DESCRIBE TO THEM HOW GOOD THEY WERE. BRING THEM BACK SO ALL THOSE 90 BABIES CAN UNDERSTAND WHAT ALL THE BIG FUSS IS ABOUT. I COULD NOT UNDERSTAND WHY THEY STOP MAKING THEM. IS THERE A STORY BEHIND THE OPERA CREAM COOKIE! I'VE READ SOME OF THE OTHER COMMENTS. THERE IS A BIG OPERA CREAM FAN BASE OUT THERE.

I keep looking for these cookies as if, somehow, they will re-appear on the shelves....like a dream. ): Why do they stop making the food items I love? I was thinking you could buy some lemon cream cookies at the store, remove the cookie part then take an oreo cookie, scrape that crap outta the middle and put the lemon stuff inside for an approximation of the same flavor?

I e-mailed the company about all the love people still have for the Opera Cremes and how they should consider bringing them back, this is their response: Thank you for contacting us regarding Keebler® Classic Opera Creme Cookies. It's always great to hear from consumers who are trying to find our products because it lets us know how much you enjoy them. We are sorry to tell you that this product was discontinued. We understand that you enjoyed this product but unfortunately stores only want to stock the fastest moving products. If the stores start to discontinue an item, we find we cannot produce the smaller volumes the business demands. It is always difficult for us to make the decision to discontinue a product, as we know it is always someone's favorite. At this time, there are no plans to reintroduce it. We know that it will be hard to find a replacement, but we are always developing new products so we are sure that you will soon find another favorite!

Those Opera Cremes were the absolute best cookies ever ever ever ever created. The chocalate and the vanilla cookies with the strong tart lemon creme in the middle. What a treat, especially with milk. Come on Keebler, bring them back. These is nothing like those on the market now nor ever been. And the people that loved them are now in their 40's 50's and 60's, and we can keep them on the shelves by buying them... You know what I mean.. Most companies just re-make something old and call it something new nowadays. Why not bring them back, and you can even call them something else, just bring back the lemon creme with choc / vanilla cookies... And I may even start back drinking milk again...

I am so dissapointed to know that KEEBLER OPERA CREAME has been discontinued.I grew in the 80's eating these cookies and there is no other cookie on the market today, that would ever compare to Opera Creme. I have traveled many states in the past few years searching for these cookies. It is SOOOOO unfortunate to know tha Opera Creame is DICONTINUE, it is the best cookies ever made. I thought i was the only one that still remember and crave these cookies, but i now have discovered there are more people. Keebler please consider all of your comments that you have recieved. You will not regret bringing OPERA CREAME BACK.

Please bring these cookies back Keebler. They are better than any other cookie you have on the market today. All the cookies are so boring because all you do is change the size of the cookie or make it soft or chewy.

Of all the foods from years back, Opera Creams are what I miss most. There has never been another cookie like them. I wrote Keebler when I first had trouble finding them way back when but they never responded. I can't believe the crummy things that persist on the market --and come and go--that these can't be made in even limited editions for those of us who still crave them.
Rodney - April 16, 2012 - Report this comment
Opera Cream Cookies are (were) hands down the best cookie ever made. I have very fond memories of the tart, sweet taste of the Lemon flavor and the dusky taste of the chocolate ones. There now, I've worked myself up again. Please KEEBLER, for the love of everything righteous and fair, bring back my cookies. I am begging. I am a 57 year old man, so I realize my begging might come off as rather shameful, but I really want those cookies again.

I love these cookies, my dad and I used to go down to the Pooles grocery in the town where i live and get these all the time. It was our thing . That is one of my fondest memories of my dad sharing those cookies with him (He has passed away now and having those cookies would be a great walk down memory lane). When my husband started dating around the time they discontinued them 93' and he went to all the grocery stores in our area and bought them all for me. That is how much I love these cookies. Murray lemon cookies are the closest thing I have found to them. I used to break them apart lick the center out and then poke the yellow in the holes out with my tongue. I would eat one chocolate and then one vanilla ( I could eat the whole bag in one sitting). I am really craving these cookies now!!!!

This is going to sound made up but it is a true story. I haven't thought about these cookies in a long time, but I awoke this morning having dremped that I was telling someone about these opera creme cookies. At the time I could not even remember the name, but the there really has not been a sandwich cookie ever made that I know of that good. So I decicded to google the subject and to my suprise I found this blog. I remember my Grandmother always keeping a bag of them, and I could only get a couple. If they produced these cookies again, I would buy a good supply and probably would eat a whole pack before I stoped! I really hope someone from Kebler reads these posts.

I always knew Opera Creme Cookies as "Grandma's Cookies." When I was a little kid, we would visit her and she always had a cookie jar with those cookies in it. She would put a piece of sandwich bread in the cookie jar with them and the moisture in the bread would transfer to the cookies and make them just a little bit soft. They were the best store bought cookies ever made.

Boo Hoo! I knew Keebler had sold the opera creme cookie years ago. They probably left the USA with their Swiss Crackers that are now sold in Canada under a company named Christie. Went to Canada just to purchase these. So what country is the opera creme cookie residing in? Actually I just came here looking for an image of them because my family thinks I am crazy! I am about these cookies. Only one I would buy on "treat" day.

I would carefully lift the top offmof a cookie somthenlittle bumps of icing that went intomthenholes on the top would still be there. Then imwould lick the icing off the other side. Sometimes we would do that to several cookies and put the filling into a spoon and lick it. We NEVER just bit right into the cookie. We would savor every portion of it til gone!

DON'T KNOW WHEN YOU STARTED MAKING OPERA CREAM COOKIES, BUT MY DAD BOUGHT A PACKAGE EVERY WEEK EVEN THOUGH WE WEREN'T ALLOWED SNACKS, [WE DECIDED LATER ON THAT HE LIKED THEM] EACH CHILD WAS ALLOWED TWO COOKIES, ALL 6 OF US LOVED THEM AND CONTINUED TO BUY THEM FOR OUR FAMILIES UNTIL WE COULD BUY THEM NO MORE, I'M THINKING MY CHILDREN WERE TEENAGERS. ANYHOW, I'M 73, AND STILL THINK IT WAS A PERFECT COOKIE. SO DO MY SIBLINGS, AND THE CHILDREN

After the chocolate chip cookies my mother made and baked,Opera Cremes were her favorites. Needless to say my sisters and brothers loved them too. After all of these years they are still talked about in our households. Sometimes we use to slowly twist them apart and lick the creme and then eat the cookie. Oh Man they were delicious. All these years and we still talk about the taste of the Opera Creme. If we are lucky enough to have them brought back, please let them taste the same.

Please, Please bring back the opera cream cookies. Those were the best cookies on the market and I miss them. I can't find any cookies that even come close to those delicious cookies. Please consider bringing them back or for a limited time at least.

I received Opera Creme Cookies as a Valentine's Day gift in 1992. With sincere, upmost respect - PLEASE bring them back. No other cookie tastes as good!

OMG I think about Opera Cremes everytime I am in the cookie aisle at the grocery. I don't half believe that stores didn't order them cause they seemed to fly off the shelf when they were available. If they don't want to make them they should sell the recipe and rights to someone who will. All we want is a classic and some of our past back. If Coca-Cola can do it I would surely think Keebler could too. They need to drop some of those yucky new concoctions they keep trying to force on everyone. I always see plenty of those left on the shelf.

Opera Cremes were my all time favorite cookies. They were my husband's also. He liked the chocolate cookies with lemon creme centers and I liked the vanilla cookies with the lemon creme centers. It made sharing so much fun and we each got our favorites. Please consider bringing them back. They were awesome...

I too haves loved these cookies since I was a child. I don't understand why your company won't reintroduce these cookies. You have several potential buyers of this product. Your answer was that the stores only order the fastest moving products. Why don't you tell the show the stores these comments or do a contest like m&m did when they allowed the public to choose the color. You tell us what we as customers need to do to get you all to at least bring this cookie back for a short time. My a back by popular demand. Advertise this on tv,newspapers, radio, etc. Give the public what they want bring back opera creme!!!from the comments I have read just on this page there wouldn't be a pack left on the shelf. We will be glad, more than glad to do what ever we need to do to get this cookie back on the shelf. Your sales would go up tremendously. We promise. Just long enough for us to experience that taste once more. You owe the public that much. Don,t you?

I, too, miss the Opera Creams. They were my favorite store bought cookie. I use to take them apart and lick the icing off and never forgot to get the icing out of the small holes. Loved the icing. I understand that they won't bring them back, but with so many wanting them back you would think they would at least consider it.

Oreo came out a few months ago with a lemon cream cookie that is golden on the outside. Buy them, unscrew it and add a chocolate cookie without the side with the cream, try an oreo original, or other brand of chocolate sandwich cookie. I am going to try this.

So many times I have thought about Keebler's delicious Opera Creme cookies. My mouth begins to water and I can hardly stand the thought of not being able to purchase them -anywhere! Since you won't be making them any more, please give the recipe so I can make them at home! I doubt they would taste the same, but I can try. Loved them soooo much. Nothing out there today like the Opera Creme cookies.

I had forgot about the opera creme. We had them as kids. I remember my mother giving us opera creme when were able to have a cookie. My siblings and I had a tough time deciding on the vanilla or the chocolate. They were awesome. Please bring them back. Nothing is the same anymore. I do like the coconut chocate drop as well. the oprea creme should be again and on every shelf. Every child needs to experience the taste of the great cookie.

I loved the opera cookies. I used to just eat the chocolate row and give the vanilla to my brother because I loved chocolate. Then I one day tried the vanilla and realized the vanilla was even better tasting than the chocolate, sorry to say I never shared with my brother again. Recently bought golden oreo with lemon creme thinking it would taste like opera cookies. Not even close. Please. Please bring back.

Totally agree, no cookie has ever surpassed the Opera Cremes. I would eat a few from the dark side and conclude the darks were the best. After eating a few of the lights, I decided they were the best. Back and forth I would go till the bag was empty. Never could decide which color was the best.

Recently, while looking for them yet again,to no avail,I discovered the Lemon Creme Oreo.While it's not an Opera Cream, it causes the taste buds to teeter on the sweet edge of recollecting half of the Opera Cream experience. Try some!See what you think.
