Ex-famous Amos offers new cookie
The man once famous for his chocolate chip cookies is back with a new chocolate chip cookie, a new name and his usual enthusiasm. Wally Amos (shown above with Radio One owner Cathy Hughes) was nibbling "Uncle Noname" cookies and exhorting passers-by to sample them at a sidewalk event last week sponsored by Baltimore's Radio One and 7-Eleven's Southland Corp., whose stores will carry the cookies. Mr. Amos lost his "Famous Amos" empire, and the right to use his name on food products, a few years ago. A 2-ounce bag of his new cookies costs 69 cents.
