(Unaudited)

(1) Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by Mrs. Fields' Original Cookies, Inc. and subsidiaries ("Mrs. Fields") in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission for Form 10-Q, and accordingly, do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. In the opinion of management, these condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, which consist only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly the financial position of Mrs. Fields as of July 1, 2000 and January 1, 2000, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the periods presented herein. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the fiscal year ended January 1, 2000 contained in Mrs. Fields' Annual Report on Form 10-K.

The results of operations for the 13 and 26 weeks ended July 1, 2000 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the remainder of the fiscal year ending December 30, 2000. Loss per share information is not presented as Mrs. Fields is wholly owned by Mrs. Fields' Holding Company, Inc. ("Mrs. Fields' Holding") and therefore, its shares are not publicly traded. All dollar amounts presented are stated in thousands.

(2) RECLASSIFICATIONS

Certain reclassifications have been made to the prior periods' condensed consolidated financial statements to conform with the current periods' presentation.

(3) STORE CLOSURE AND PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT IMPAIRMENT RESERVES

Mrs. Fields' management reviews the historical and projected operating performance of its stores on a periodic basis to identify underperforming stores for impairment of net property investment or for targeted closing. Mrs. Fields' policy is to recognize a loss for that portion of the net property investment determined to be impaired. Additionally, when a store is identified for targeted closing, Mrs. Fields' accrues the costs of closing the store, which are predominantly estimated lease termination costs. Lease termination costs include both one-time settlement payments and continued contractual payments over time under the original lease agreements where no settlement can be reached with the landlord. As a result, although all stores under the current exit plans will be exited by at least the end of fiscal year 2000, a portion of the store closure reserve will remain until all cash payments have been made. No operating losses have been accrued. The classification of some stores to be closed or franchised may be changed and the store removed from the exit plan if that store's operations change positively, or if the Company is unable to negotiate a settlement with the landlord. If and when a reserve that was established as part of purchase accounting is not fully utilized, Mrs. Fields reduces the reserve to zero and goodwill is adjusted for the corresponding amount. Any excess reserve that was not established as part of purchase accounting is adjusted through the income statement.

In connection with the TCBY Transaction, on June 1, 2000, Mrs. Fields entered into a Management Agreement (the "TCBY Management Agreement") with TCBY Holding Company, Inc., the parent company of TCBY, and TCBY Systems, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of TCBY, pursuant to which the corporate and administrative functions of TCBY were transferred to Mrs. Fields. Under the TCBY Management Agreement, Mrs. Fields has agreed to manage and operate TCBY's business, and pay specified operating and other costs of TCBY (including specified costs associated with the transfer of the management function from Little Rock, Arkansas to Salt Lake City, Utah), in exchange for a management fee that will be paid by TCBY semi-monthly. Revenue generated from the management fee is reported under the caption "Management fee revenue" on the income statement. Mrs. Fields does not separate the costs incurred under the management agreement from costs of operating Mrs. Fields, as most of Mrs. Fields' employees support both companies, therefore the activity for managing TCBY is not reported as a separate segment.

In accordance with the terms and conditions of the TCBY Management Agreement, Mrs. Fields and TCBY will share cost savings that may be obtained through the joint purchase of ingredients, supplies and services and Mrs. Fields will be eligible to receive a portion of the anticipated cost savings in connection with the expected outsourcing of TCBY's yogurt and ice cream manufacturing requirements. The TCBY Transaction will also provide the opportunity for Mrs. Fields and its eligible franchisees to become TCBY franchisees and for eligible TCBY franchisees to become franchisees of Mrs. Fields or its subsidiaries.

In connection with the TCBY Transaction, Mrs. Fields received a $300,000 acquisition advisory fee for its services rendered in connection with the acquisition and for partial reimbursement of out-of-pocket costs and expenses totaling approximately $725,000 incurred by Mrs. Fields in connection with its performance of acquisition advisory services. Mrs. Fields will receive a fee of up to $1.5 million from TCBY when TCBY is successful in selling its existing dairy processing plant for net proceeds sufficient to retire debt associated with the plant. Mrs. Fields' management expects that the revenues from the TCBY Management Fee and any fees earned in connection with a sale of the TCBY dairy processing plant will exceed any costs not fully reimbursed by the acquisition advisory fee and related reimbursement.

(5) REPORTABLE SEGMENTS

Management evaluates performance at Mrs. Fields using two reportable operating segments; namely, (1) company-owned stores and related activity and
(2) franchising and licensing activity. The segments are determined by revenue source; direct sales or royalties and license fees. The company-owned stores segment consists of both cookie and pretzel stores owned and operated by Mrs. Fields and sales of its mail order business. The franchising and licensing segment consists of cookie and pretzel stores, which are owned and operated by third parties who pay Mrs. Fields an initial franchise fee and monthly royalties based on a percentage of gross sales, sales of cookie dough manufactured by the Company to its franchisees and other licensing activity not related to cookie or pretzel stores. Sales and transfers between segments are eliminated in consolidation.

Mrs. Fields evaluates performance of each segment based on contribution margin. Contribution margin is computed as the difference between the revenues generated by a reportable segment and the selling and store occupancy costs and cost of sales related to that reportable segment. It is used as a measure of the operating performance of an operating segment. Mrs. Fields does not allocate any revenue generated from the TCBY management fee, general and administrative expense, other income (expense), interest expense, depreciation and amortization of assets to its reportable operating segments. Segment revenue and contribution margin are presented in the following table (in thousands).

Revenues from international franchising and licensing are generated from Canada and Australia with no other countries having material representation. During the year ended January 1, 2000 all remaining international company-owned stores were closed.

Mrs. Fields primarily operates and franchises retail stores, which sell freshly baked cookies, brownies, pretzels and other food products through six specialty retail chains. As of July 1, 2000, Mrs. Fields owned and operated 126 Mrs. Fields Cookies stores, 89 Original Cookie Company stores, 91 Great American Cookies stores, 47 Hot Sam Pretzels stores, 77 Pretzel Time stores and 4 Pretzelmaker stores in the United States.

Revenues

Net Store and Food Sales. Total net store sales decreased $2,147, or 6.2 percent, from $34,786 to $32,639 for the 13 weeks ended July 1, 2000 compared to the 13 weeks ended July 3, 1999. The decrease was due primarily to 58, or 11.8 percent, fewer stores open at July 1, 2000 compared to July 3, 1999. Sales were flat for mall stores that had been open one year or more when compared to the same period in the prior year. Mail order sales for the 13 weeks ended July 1, 2000 increased $871, or 77 percent, compared to the 13 weeks ended July 3, 1999. The increase was due to increased mail order sales and the direct sales of frozen cookie dough in supermarkets that in the prior year had been marketed by an outside licensee.

Franchising Revenues. Franchising revenues increased $951, or 18.5 percent, from $5,146 to $6,097 for the 13 weeks ended July 1, 2000 compared to the 13 weeks ended July 3, 1999. Franchising revenues were positively impacted by the Easter holiday occurring in the second quarter in fiscal 2000 compared to Easter occurring in the first quarter in 1999. Sales of cookie dough to our Great American franchisees also increased $166 during the 13 weeks ended July 1, 2000, compared to the 13 weeks ended July 3, 1999.

Management Fee Revenue. The Company received management fee revenue of $1,033 in June of 2000 to manage TCBY, which was acquired by an affiliate of the Company's parent on June 1, 2000. The Company also received a $300 acquisition advisory fee as part of the acquisition. Under the terms of the management agreement, the Company will receive monthly payments of $1,033 for managing and operating TCBY's business.

Licensing Revenues. Licensing revenues decreased $40, or 16.6 percent, from $241 to $201 for the 13 weeks ended July 1, 2000 compared to the 13 weeks ended July 3, 1999. The decrease in licensing revenues for the 13 weeks ended July 1, 2000 was primarily attributable to a decrease in the number of licensees with agreements in effect during the current quarter compared to 1999.

Operating Costs and Expenses

Selling and Store Occupancy Costs. Total selling and store occupancy costs decreased $1,338, or 6.8 percent, from $19,725 to $18,387 for the 13 weeks ended July 1, 2000 compared to the 13 weeks ended July 3, 1999. The decrease is attributable to 58, or 11.8 percent, fewer stores open at July 1, 2000 compared to July 3, 1999, and to cost cutting efforts.

Cost of Sales. Total food cost of sales increased $1,109, or 11.2 percent, from $9,925 to $11,034 for the 13 weeks ended July 1, 2000 compared to the 13 weeks ended July 3, 1999. This increase was primarily the result of increased mail order and batter facility sales and sales of frozen cookie dough to retail outlets in 2000 compared to 1999. These sales have a lower gross profit percentage than regular food store sales and the mail order business incurred large advertising costs that negatively impacted its contribution in the 13 weeks ended July 1, 2000 compared with the prior year period. Cost of goods sold for mall stores decreased $1,120 or 14.0 percent due to fewer stores open during the 13 weeks ended July 1, 2000, compared to the prior period. Cost of sales as percentage of sales for mall stores decreased from 25.6 percent for the 13 weeks ended July 3, 1999, to 24.0 percent for the 13 weeks ended July 1, 2000.

24

General and Administrative Expenses. General and administrative expenses increased $790, or 14.2 percent, from $5,549 to $6,339 for the 13 weeks ended July 1, 2000 compared to the 13 weeks ended July 3, 1999. The increase in general and administrative expenses was primarily attributable to one-time costs incurred by the Company in conjunction with Capricorn Investors III, L.P.'s acquisition of TCBY. These costs were offset by the $300 acquisition advisory fee and the $1,033 management fee revenue discussed above. This increase was partially offset by lower legal and risk management insurance expenditures in the current period. The Company expects general and administrative costs to continue at increased levels in the future as it manages and operates TCBY's business. However, these increased costs will be offset by the management fee revenue received from TCBY.

Store Closure Benefit. The Company recorded a $200 store closure benefit in the current period. The Company was able to close certain stores at a cost less than what had been provided for in the plan. There was no comparable benefit or provision in 1999. See Note 3 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for a detailed explanation of the store closure reserve.

Depreciation and Amortization. Total depreciation and amortization expense increased by $464, or 7.9 percent, from $5,867 to $6,331 for the 13 weeks ended July 1, 2000 compared to the 13 weeks ended July 3, 1999. The increase is primarily due to depreciation on the newly installed point of sale and other computer equipment, depreciation of new equipment installed in continuing stores and the acceleration of depreciation on stores in the process of being closed.

Total Other Income (Expense). Total other income (expense) decreased by $104, or 2.3 percent, from $4,532 to $4,428 for the 13 weeks ended July 1, 2000 compared to the 13 weeks ended July 3, 1999. The decrease resulted primarily from higher interest expense resulting from higher interest rates, partially offset by a lower tax provision and no preferred stock dividends in the current quarter.

Net Loss. The net loss increased by $624, or 11.5 percent, from $5,425 to $6,049 for the 13 weeks ended July 1, 2000 compared to the 13 weeks ended July 3, 1999 due to the combination of factors described above.

26 Weeks Ended July 1, 2000 Compared to the 26 Weeks Ended July 3, 1999

As of July 1, 2000, there were 434 Company-owned stores and 967 franchised or licensed stores in operation. The store activity for the 26 weeks ended July 1, 2000 and July 3, 1999 is summarized as follows:

Revenues

Net Store and Food Sales. Total net store sales decreased $5,480, or 7.6 percent, from $71,915 to $66,435 for the 26 weeks ended July 1, 2000 compared to the 26 weeks ended July 3, 1999. The decrease was due primarily to 58, or 11.8 percent, fewer stores open at July 1, 2000 compared to July 3, 1999. For stores that had been open one year or more, mall store sales decreased .8 percent when compared to the same period in the prior year. Mail order sales for the 26 weeks ended July 1, 2000 increased $1,786, or 80 percent, compared to the 26 weeks ended July 3, 1999. The increase was due to increased mail order sales and the direct sales of frozen cookie dough in supermarkets that in the prior year had been marketed by an outside licensee.

Franchising Revenues. Franchising revenues increased $481, or 4.2 percent, from $11,562 to $12,043 for the 26 weeks ended July 1, 2000 compared to the 26 weeks ended July 3, 1999. The increase was primarily from the sales of cookie dough to our Great American franchisees during the 26 weeks ended July 1, 2000, compared to the 26 weeks ended July 3, 1999.

25

Management Fee Revenue. The Company received management fee revenue of $1,033 in June of 2000 to manage TCBY, which was acquired by an affiliate of the Company's parent on June 1, 2000. The Company also received a $300 acquisition advisory fee as part of the acquisition. Under the terms of the management agreement, the Company will receive monthly payments of $1,033 for managing and operating TCBY's business.

Licensing Revenues. Licensing revenues decreased $327, or 47.5 percent, from $688 to $361 for the 26 weeks ended July 1, 2000 compared to the 26 weeks ended July 3, 1999. The decrease in licensing revenues for the 26 weeks ended July 1, 2000 was primarily attributable to a decrease in the number of licensees with agreements in effect during the first six months of 2000 compared to 1999. Also, the agreement with the licensee of frozen cookie dough for sale to supermarkets was in effect during the first six months of 1999, but not during 2000.

Operating Costs and Expenses

Selling and Store Occupancy Costs. Total selling and store occupancy costs decreased $4,411, or 10.7 percent, from $41,118 to $36,707 for the 26 weeks ended July 1, 2000 compared to the 26 weeks ended July 3, 1999. The decrease is primarily attributable to 58, or 11.8 percent, fewer stores open at July 1, 2000 compared to July 3, 1999, and to cost cutting efforts. Selling and store occupancy costs as a percentage of sales decreased from 57.2 percent in 1999 to 55.3 percent in 2000.

Cost of Sales. Total food cost of sales increased $145, or .7 percent, from $21,856 to $22,001 for the 26 weeks ended July 1, 2000 compared to the 26 weeks ended July 3, 1999. This increase was primarily the result of increased mail order and batter facility sales and sales of frozen cookie dough to retail outlets in 2000 compared to 1999. These sales have a lower gross profit percentage than regular food store sales and the mail order business incurred large advertising costs that negatively impacted its contribution in the 26 weeks ended July 1, 2000 compared with the prior period. Cost of goods sold for mall stores decreased $2,109 or 12.4 percent due to fewer stores open during the 26 weeks ended July 1, 2000, compared to the prior period. Cost of sales as percentage of sales for mall stores decreased from 25.2 percent for the 26 weeks ended July 3, 1999, to 24.7 percent for the 26 weeks ended July 1, 2000.

General and Administrative Expenses. General and administrative expenses increased $587, or 5.4 percent, from $10,873 to $11,460 for the 26 weeks ended July 1, 2000 compared to the 26 weeks ended July 3, 1999. The increase in general and administrative expenses was primarily attributable to one-time costs incurred by the Company in conjunction with Capricorn Investors III, L.P.'s acquisition of TCBY. These costs were offset by the $300 acquisition advisory fee and the $1,033 management fee revenue discussed above. This increase was partially offset by lower legal and risk management insurance expenditures in the current period. The Company expects general and administrative costs to continue at increased levels in the future as it manages and operates TCBY's business. However, these increased costs will be offset by the management fee revenue received from TCBY.

Store Closure Benefit. The Company recorded a $200 store closure benefit in the current period. The Company was able to close certain stores at a cost less than what had been provided for in the plan. There was no comparable benefit or provision in 1999. See Note 3 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for a detailed explanation of the store closure reserve.

Depreciation and Amortization. Total depreciation and amortization expense increased by $726, or 6.4 percent, from $11,263 to $11,989 for the 26 weeks ended July 1, 2000 compared to the 26 weeks ended July 3, 1999. The increase is primarily due to depreciation on the newly installed point of sale and other computer equipment, depreciation of new equipment installed in continuing stores and the acceleration of depreciation on stores in the process of being closed.

Total Other Income (Expense). Total Other income (expense) decreased by $108, or 1.2 percent, from $9,154 to $9,046 for the 26 weeks ended July 1, 2000 compared to the 26 weeks ended July 3, 1999. The decrease resulted primarily from higher interest expense resulting from higher interest rates, partially offset by a lower tax provision and no preferred stock dividends in the current period.

Net Loss. The net loss increased by $732, or 7.2 percent, from $10,099 to $10,831 for the 26 weeks ended July 1, 2000 compared to the 26 weeks ended July 3, 1999 due to the combination of factors described above.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

General

Mrs. Fields' principal sources of liquidity are cash flows from operating activities, cash on hand and available borrowings under Mrs. Fields' existing revolving credit facility. As of July 1, 2000, Mrs. Fields had $1,775 of cash and cash equivalents on hand and $4,366 additional borrowings available under its revolving credit facility. Mrs. Fields expects to use its existing cash, cash flows from operating activities and its credit facility to provide working capital, finance capital expenditures and to meet debt service requirements, including the December 1, 2000 interest payment. Based on current operations, Mrs. Fields believes that its sources of liquidity will be adequate to meet its anticipated requirements for working capital, capital expenditures, scheduled debt service requirements and other general corporate purposes on both a short and long-term basis. There can be no assurance, however, that Mrs. Fields' business will continue to generate cash flows at or above current levels.

July 1, 2000 Compared to January 1, 2000

As of July 1, 2000, Mrs. Fields had liquid assets (cash and cash equivalents and receivables) of $9,436, a decrease of 27.0 percent, or $3,486, from January 1, 2000 when liquid assets were $12,922. Cash decreased $3,144, or 63.9 percent, to $1,775 at July 1, 2000 from $4,919 at January 1, 2000. Cash decreased primarily from the retirement of the preferred stock of Pretzel Time, the purchase of capital assets with cash rather than using capital lease financing, and the payment of expenses incurred in 1999, but not due until 2000. Total receivables at July 1, 2000 were lower due to lower sales and improved cash collection procedures.

Mrs. Fields' working capital decreased by $2,446, or 64.6 percent, to a negative $6,232 at July 1, 2000 from a negative $3,786 at January 1, 1999. This decrease is due primarily to lower cash balances in the current period.

Long-term assets decreased $10,855 or 5.8 percent to $176,960 at July 1, 2000 from $187,815 at January 1, 2000. This decrease was primarily the result of scheduled depreciation and amortization of property and equipment, goodwill and deferred loan costs.

Mrs. Fields' operating activities used cash of $1,899 for the 26 weeks ended July 1, 2000, primarily due to lower accounts payable balances and for cash payments to close stores.

Mrs. Fields utilized $2,529 of cash in investing activities during the 26 weeks ended July 1, 2000, primarily for capital expenditures relating to store remodels and renovations.

Mrs. Fields received $1,359 in cash from financing activities during the 26 weeks ended July 1, 2000. The increase resulted from borrowings on the Company's bank line of credit. During the current period, the Preferred stock of Pretzel Time was redeemed in full.

The specialty cookie and pretzel businesses do not require the maintenance of significant receivables or inventories; however, Mrs. Fields continually invests in its business by upgrading and remodeling stores and adding new stores, carts, and kiosks as opportunities arise. Investments in these long-term assets, which are key to generating current sales, reduce Mrs. Fields' working capital. During the 26 weeks ended July 1, 2000 and July 3, 1999, Mrs. Fields expended $2,529 and $2,604, respectively, for capital assets and expects to expend a total of approximately $9,500 in 2000. Management anticipates that these expenditures will be funded with cash generated from operating activities and short-term borrowings under its credit facility as needed.

Inflation

The impact of inflation on the earnings of the business has not been significant in recent years. Most of Mrs. Fields' leases contain escalation clauses (however, such leases are accounted for on a straight-line basis as required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, which minimizes fluctuations in operating income) and many of Mrs. Fields' employees are paid hourly wages at the Federal minimum wage level. Minimum wage increases will negatively impact Mrs. Fields' payroll costs in the short term, but management believes such impact can be offset in the long term through operational efficiency gains and, if necessary, through product price increases.
