The Famous Amos Story Originally, Wally Amos, a true cookie lover, baked cookies in his home to share with his friends.

He then started his own company with the commitment to use only the best ingredients, like rich chocolate and flavorful nuts. Those homemade-tasting cookies were so special that they got famous just by word of mouth. Today, Famous Amos cookies still meet these high expectations and are enjoyed by all true cookie lovers.
