When do they find time to bake? Keebler has created yet another new cookie: Raisin Ruckus - plump raisins in a chewy oatmeal cookie and a chocolate-covered raisin version. The 16-ounce package retails for $2.55.
Don Russell (married, five children at home, ages 14-4): "We enjoyed Keebler's new cookies, which Keebler claimed were drenched in chocolate. We found the cookies to be moist, flavorful and tasty, but had very little chocolate to them. These cookies should likely please most anyone except those who don't like raisins. Just don't expect too much of a chocolate taste."Edyth Jensen (married, two children and two grandchildren at home): "These are great. I even have a child that doesn't like raisins that ate some. We really enjoyed them. The chocolate makes a difference on the raisins, of course, but they are really a chewy, good cookie."
Nihla Lake (married, four children at home): "These cookies reminded us of Saturday matinee at the movies when we would buy and share a big box of Raisinettes. This latest Keebler creation was good - with the oatmeal just spicy enough to make it interesting; and, of course, oatmeal cookies aren't authentic without raisins. The extra chocolate coating made them extra special."
Linda C. Tingey (single mother, four teenage boys at home): "This is a great cookie. They're so much like homemade that I'd take them to a potluck for dessert. I'll be buying these again."
Rich Firmage (married, three children, oldest 8 years old): "We tested the `plump raisins in chewy oatmeal.' They were great. They tasted good, they were really soft and my kids liked them, too. There are so many kinds of cookies these days - whether I actually buy these again will be just dumb luck."
Conclusion: With Bill Allred off to Europe for X-96 Radio, we had five testers to try Keebler's new cookies. They all raised a ruckus for raisins!
