I believe these were called Mallow Puffs and were packaged in a box similar to Mallomars, only it was blue instead of yellow

You guys are not the only ones who miss these cookies. There are many of us out there. I loved these cookies. There's a company that make similar ones. They only have one cookie and a marshmellow top but they have toasted coconut on top. A bit of a variation but I like them as well. Mrs. Allisons Toasted Coconut Puffs. There are other variations from this company though the are not exactly the nabisco marshmellow sandwiches. But when I can find them (they're hard to come by, though they're still being made) I do enjoy them. Good luck and lets start a campaign started to bring them back.

I LOVED those cookies as a kid. Please Nabisco bring them back !!! I used to buy myself a whole damn box and just devour them. Funny thing is I was skinny as hell when I was a kid, so maybe there's a health benefit unbeknownst to Nabisco. Bring them back, we miss them !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am glad to see somebody remembers them from the 1980's. All over the inter are statements that they were discontinued in the 1970's. I remember eating them in Pennsylvania, a state I moved to in 1986.

My mother and sister remember those cookies with the marshmallow so well. I was just think about theme today when I saw the Nabisco Ginger Snaps. My mom would send my sister and me to the store to get them as a treat when I was a kid. I wish Nabisco would bring back those cookies.

I have also looked for Nabisco Marshmallow Sandwiches but they're no longer made. Nabisco probably wants a VERY large order to make them, but I think they would sell out quickly. They were the best...simple and good.

I AGREE. THE GIRLS I WORK WITH AGREE ALSO. WE WERE TRAVELING DOWN THE FOOD MEMORY LANE. WE ALL AGREE - WE WOULD BUY A CASE AND SPLIT THEM. AH, I CAN STILL TASTE THEM FROM MY CHILDHOOD. NABISCO, ARE YOU LISTENING TO ALL OF US?

My parents moved from NY to Boston in the 1960s. Everytime we went to visit relatives in NY, we would always go to a grocery store and empty the shelves of the Marshmallow Sandwiches! Those cookes would have rivaled Oreos if Nabisco only sold them nation-wide! Does anyone know of a good clone recipe?

I'm amazed so many people are looking for these cookies!The vanilla cookie had a smear of I think apricot jam to hold it together. What is the name,is it mallow puffs? I think they were in 2 little brown boxes wrapped in a blueish paper.I would love to see them back. Just could not believe i found this site all about the little mellow cookie!!!!! I'ts great.COME ON NABISCO BRING THE BACK!!!!!!!

I grew up in Queens and absolutely loved these cookies. I think the last time I had one was in the 1980s. It would be great if Nabisco brought them back - I know I would definitely buy them!

it's a shame such a great cookie. i even called nabisco and offered to buy a few cases..but it fell on deaf ears. I guess they are too busy...some customer service. Marshmallow Sandwich cookies sold well. I can't understand it.

I remember the cookie as having two soft cookies with small ridges across the top, and marshmallowand red jam inside. Please someone remember the name. I'm not sure they were Mine had red jam, not apricot. I had to stop eating them before I finished the whole box

WOW! I thought I was the only onw who remembered these cookies. This site is like a group therapy session for people with marshmallow sandwich cookie withdrawl. I'm one of them and was amazed to read all these comments that echo my sentiments. I loved those cookies and wish we ALL had them back. It would bring back such wonderful memories. Thanks to all of you who shared.

I spoke at length with a Nabisco representative and it is highly unlikely to come back factories have to be retooled etc...But what if we could come up with a formula and bring them to market. I grew up in Paterson NJ and those cookies in the 70s and early 80s were so so good.

I am from Flatbush Brooklyn and routinely went to the Key Food near Flatbush ave and Clarendon Road. Never once opened a box without the intention to eat every one of them. One day I made the mistake of tossing a box with one cookie left. From that point on I ran my finger along the wax paper to check. My last memory was the worst when I went down the aisle to blue box that were no longer there. If I had known production had stopped I would have spent everything I had on a stockpile. I question the retooling argument as why Nabisco won't go back into production... Perhaps the chemicals and processes back then might lead to major litigation today. I'd still eat a few. Wonder if some small business could go into limited production under license from Nabisco?

I used to buy the Nabisco marshmallow cookies that came in a blue box. 2 cartons in a box in a vanilla cookie. I would eat the whole box in a few days. My ex boyfriend was fond of those cookies also and for a long time I tried to find them. It always seems that good things don't last. Miss that blue box and those vanilla marshmallow cookies.

I am orginally from Brooklyn, New York. I am now a resident of Okland, CA. I have been searching high and low for these delicious cookies. As a child and young man, I would delight in purchasing a pack or two on a regular basis. Shame on you, Nabisco for discontinuing these well liked and very desired cookies. I am so happy to see that I am not alone in wanting the cookies back. Let's hope that our voices produces results.

Please, Nabisco, reconsider! There's so many people out there craving these cookies, including me and I'm in my 60's. Grandkids would love, love, love them. You sure could make a killing with a comeback!!!! Stocks would soar! Please????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PUFFS! I loved them.. still love them and would possibly love them even more now! I know Nabisco still makes Pinwheels, but they just are not the same, I think they are dark chocolate and less marshmellow. I guess the pinwheels were more successful so they ditched the good ones. I'm currently working on Ruby Red Squirt too.

My brothers and sister grew up in long island in the 60's. We all loved these cookies. Couldn't wait for mom to come back from the grocery store so we could dive into them. 2 cardboard boxes with wax paper inside. Wrapped in blue shiney like paper. Don't remember any jelly but the soft marshmallow left some kind of film on the cookie. Delicious!!! We would have them gone before mom put the rest of the groceries away. We still to this day talk about them. When we moved to NJ we would visit other family in ny and would always make sure we picked up a few boxes. Very disappointed when we couldn't find them anymore.YOU HAVE GOT TO BRING THEM BACK!!! Even for a short while for nostalgic reasons. WHEN THIS GENERATION DIES, NO ONE ELSE WILL EVER KNOW WHAT THESE WERE OR HOW GREAT THEY TASTED. You would be foolish not to bring them back. Easy money in your pocket.

I remember fighting with my brother over the last cookie. My mother used to buy these each time we went shopping at the Met supermarket and we couldn't wait to get home to eat them. I loved that they came in two boxes and once we ate the first box, we knew that we were in for more with the second box. I would love to suprise my brother one day with a box of these. Please, Please Nabisco BRING THESE COOKIES BACK, WE NEED LOVE THEM!

I have been thinking about these cookies for the last few years and I am glad I found some reference to them. My grandmother use to buy these for me when I was with her in a store called Florence and I would eat them at her house. I love them and miss them a great deal. They are from my child hood. Nabisco are you listening. Bring them back!!!!!!!

i have written to nabisco, i told them all i wanted for my birthday was a box of nabisco marshmallow sandwiches, and they replied, " these cookies were taken off the market because they were not in high demand, i cried when i got the email back from them telling that.....WE NEED THESE COOKIES BACK!!!! (i got over it), but i would love to see them back on the market... yours truly.
Brooklyn Kid - September 11, 2012 - Report this comment
I echo what others say above. I wrote to Nabisco - got the same story - that is, after they denied they ever made them! They make some abomination today called "Nilla Cakesters". When I first saw these in stores, I thought Marshmallow Sandwich was back - DO NOT BE FOOLED - "Nilla Cakesters" are awful - NOTHING like "Marshmallow Sandwich". You know the secret - the consistency and taste of the cookie, the marshmallow, and the most important - the apricot "glue" - amazing! Is this not the single most FRUSTRATING thing? - that Nabisco refuses to bring these back? It CANNOT be - I repeat CANNOT be due to lack of interest. If I new how to run a cookie business, I would make these cookies again and become independently wealthy on the sales in a matter of months. You all know - THEY WERE THAT GOOD!
Brooklyn Kid 2 - September 11, 2012 - Report this comment
I have a crackpot theory, actually. The cookies had to be taken off the market due to some weird way they affected people. Hey - look at as all - we're clearly addicted! The remnant cookies are probably all buried out west by Area 51. WHAT OTHER REASON CAN THERE BE? It is NOT due to lack of consumers wanting them - I GUARANTEE THAT! Hey, they did the same with the Chevy EV1 - destroyed all of them. Who knows why.

I remember these too and they were not pinwheels. They had marshmallow in the middle and were held together with a touch of honey on each side. I grew up in spanish harlem and ate them through out my childhood in the 70's and 80's. Would love to have another now and share them with my kids.

I loved these cookies when I was growing up in Queens. They must not have distributed them in Western New York, because nobody here remembers them at all. If Nabisco brings them back, I'm gonna have to beg someone to mail me a few cases to hold me over for a week or two. NABISCO: READ THESE COMMENTS, BRING THEM BACK!!!

I grew up in Florida in the 70s and I use to love these cookies. They did not have a layer of jelly, just vanilla wafers with the marshmallow in the middle. I always got these in the summer when school was out and I would accompany mom to the grocery store. I couldnt remember the name, but the blue box looks familiar. I wish they would bring these back!!

Does anyone know what cookie Nabisco used for these treats? i tried to recreate recently using two Nilla Wafers with a slice of a marshmallow inside, but the cookie was too hard. i remember it being soft
Dawn - November 02, 2014 - Report this comment
I think the apricot "glue" was there but easy to miss. Also I think it would work to recreate them using nia wafers but they have since changed the taste of a wafers (sad) and the marshmallow center was not. Dry sweet so that would need to be made rather than simply using a marshmallow. Then once you assemble it you would need to seal it in wax paper then in a cardboard box long enough for the moisture from the marshmallow to soften the cookie. Maybe a few weeks? I think it's do able !!
