I always dance like this when eating “Mambo” cookies! This is a fabulous old cookie tin I found here on Cape Cod. Made by the Atlas Biscuit Corporation. Exotic Coconut, Exhilarating Rum, and Exciting Taste!

    Absolutely stunning tin. I would’ve killed to have tasted the cookies, coconut and being my favorite taste of all. Not so nuts about rum but love that these were liquor cookies.

    What are the dimensions of the tin?

    Graphic is fantastic. Love the bamboo product name font. And I like that a coconut makes them so happy.

    I too love coconut but Rum makes me heave. Love, love, love the bamboo font as well but what really got me were the 3 states of bliss on the tin: exotic, exhilarating, exciting, that’s what kitsch is all about!. I love the pointy palm tree leaves too!

    Hot huh? I am still in awe over the fruit in her hat, none of it has fallen out! I especially like the green bands around her ankle!
