Did your mother keep a stocked cookie jar when you were growing up?

We usually had cookies around, either oreos or the chips ahoy with the 3 m&m's on top ---> those were my favorite! I'm definitely a cookie monster, but I'll be pretty strict with what my kids eat. But, I'll probably have my own cookie stash hidden somewhere.

Growing up we had cookies and other stuff quite a bit. I like to bake so my kids get cookies whenever we're in the mood for them. I do try not to make them too often so they aren't eating sweets all the time but at the same time I don't make a big deal out of limiting it.

We talk alot about portion control and that they can eat whatever they want as long as they don't over do it. As parents today, we have so many more things to think about than our parents did.

We always had a cookie jar sitting on the kitchen counter.

HaHa!!! Yes we had one. It was a pink tupperware set of canisters. Why would anyone choose rose! tupperware?? Mostly we had the big packs of cream filled ones. Like cheap Oreos in vanilla & chocolate ones. I tried to get as many of the chocolates as I could. Yes we have a cookie jar & it has fudge striped ones in there now.

I have some of the old Tupperware canisters. I got them on Ebay, I love them! I had a few other sets over the years but these just are the best I've found.
