Re:Nabisco Deluxe Assortment
Hi, Chris. No, you are not insane. In fact, I've been bringing these cookies up for the past couple of years among my friends, and I seem to be the only one who remembers them! I am glad to know I am not alone! They were great cookies, and it was my late grandmother whou bought them regularly, back in the sixties and seventies. They came in the rectangular box you described, but there was a pink or fuchsia-colored outer wrapper that you had to cut, as indicated by a dotted line with a tiny image of scissors.
The assorted cookies were as follows: Cameos (sandwich cookie with creme center), Lorna Doone (shortbread), Kettle cookie (a square, spice cookie with an embedded imprint that I do recall being sold separately), a round butter daisy-like cookie with a hole in the center, wafers, Oreos, maybe a chocolate chip cookie, and a round sandwich creme centered cookie. I haven't seen them since the late seventies. I would buy them in a heartbeat if they would bring them back today.
