Pronounced 'TOO-kees' they were similar to today's Little Debbie Nutty Bars except Twookies did not have peanut butter in them. Just flavored wafers covered in chocolate.

This was one of my favorite snacks as a child. I was reminded of them the other day when my son was eating a sugar wafer. I miss them they were great. If anyone knows how to get some please let us know.

Just get a Twix bar... toss it in the fridge for a few hours then eat off the top gooey stuff. There you have a good ole Twookie again!

I searched and searched and could not find much on twookies. It appears though they were made by Intersweet Inc, which has long gone bankrupt. i would just like to see a picture of the wrapper.

I remember those, I loved them, they came in a plastic wrap of two and they were really long and super cheap! I've been looking for them too for the last 15 years!

I was president and major shareholder of Intersweet. Started company when in my teens.I came up with the idea while sitting at my desk thinking of how to stimulate business. Yes Twookies was a very special product. It was unique in packaging and offered great consumer value. The product actually lasted for almost twenty years. However never sustaining the incredible 5 year run for a candy/cookie product from a small manufacturer. Lot's of memories. Thanks for remembering.

A website said a small company named Cookie Club out of 7301 Ridgeway Skokie, IL 60076, made twookies now.
Richelle - August 02, 2009 - Report this comment
They absolutely came in Peanut Butter, with no chocolate coating, just the long wafers with layers of peanut butter. That's the way I ate them in 4-6th grade, late 80's...Those were my favorite!!!

My grampa always used to buy them for me when I was a little kid, thinking that I loved them. They were Okay, but I would have rather had money or some beer.

Are you interested in buying coin operated horses or spring rocking horses??? They are sold on Ebay. Most spring horses are made by Blazon, Wonder, Flexible Flyer, and Radio Flyer. Feel free to buy as many as you like. Good luck!!! :) Ebay account required.

I loved Twookies!! I've asked everyone if they remember Twookies and everyone thinks I'm crazy and say they didn't exist. They came in 3 flavors. Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry. I wish I could find a picture of them.

I had twookies as kid also. Had the peanut butter which was my favorite also. I have searched for these on the internet also with no luck, but would be more than happy to drive all the way to Illinois to experience them one more time.

I just read the case argument against intersweet inc. and how when their workers tried to unionize they fired the whole workforce and shut the doors on the plant. Reopening and hiring back a limited staff, they were brought up on charges by the labor board in which they were found guilty of a number of infractions… although a huge fan of the Twookie line of snacks, I think you shot yourself in the foot there John…
