2 days before the greatest day of my life...my 6th birthday party at Showbiz Pizza in Joliet!! WOW! I'm not sure they're the best store cookie in Chicago or not but it's hard to argue with a newspaper article with no other proof than the name of the paper and it's type

Matt's Cookies were sold at one point by the Aldi grocery store chain,
but now they sell their own cookies through the Grandessa label.

that's right WGN9. My Grandfather a hardcore Aldi shopper often had a bag or two lying around. They weren't bad at all but I've had better cookies

Cookies so big, you have to grab them with your entire hand !
(note to self: give marketing another bushel of cash as a bonus)

I once received a pack of Matt's Cookie's as giveaway after being in the audience of the Bozo show. They are the best store bought chocolate cookies around. They even taste better after ten seconds in the Mircowave. Yum!

They still are the best cookies now.

I love those kind of cookies! My mom buys them for me whenever she goes to the store.

I remember Lou Antonio from an awful Monkees-inspired movie "The Phynx." Odd 'comedy' film with an all-star cast, including Richard Pryor, Colonel Sanders, the Bowery Boys, James Brown, Dick Clark, Ed Sullivan, the Lone Ranger and Tonto, and several others, mostly from the old days of Hollywood.

Actually, I don't recall seeing this package on KABC. A few other markets that did use it though include stations in Philadelphia (WPVI-TV) and Baltimore (WJZ-TV). Some of you might also remember seeing the first 5 seconds of this clip as part of Entertainment Tonight's opening intro back in 1982.

I never, in my life, saw a Farrell's, let alone ever been in one (especially when I was in the age range cited in this ad). Were there any in the New York metro area?

He was also "Little Earl" on "What's Happening?" and had a role in the Academy Awards sweeping "Meatballs Part 2".

Some of the "Old Time Movie" footage is from the 1926 Billy Bevan comedy HOBOKEN TO HOLLYWOOD...the clip also features Three Stooges nemesis Vernon Dent.

We had several Farrell's here in the Houston area; my sister worked at one near NASA. Nonstop noise and fun for everyone - she loved every minute of it!

There were also Farrell's Ice Cream Parlor locations in the state of Illinois besides North Riverside, IL.:
Woodfield Mall (Schaumburg, IL.)
Ford City Mall (Chicago, IL.)
Northwoods Mall (Peoria, IL.)

Rick: The photos on http://www.boonsborovillage.com/ look like the place was built in the late 1960s, early 1970s. According to apartments.com, it was built in 1970.

Szake - Yes, but were those apartment buildings there 39 years ago? That's long ago enough that you have to at least ask the question. :-)
