Baby Ruth Ice Cream Bars, Comment by Qt Pie on April 23, 2014 - Report this comment
I finally found the ice cream minus the stick, lol. Kroger's store brand ice cream makes it. All you need is Hershey's chocolate syrup. Delish!

I remember eating these when I lived in Germany in the early 80's. I was reminded by these because the other day I tried Pringles in the pizza flavor and it brought back Pizza Spins!!

Treasures Chocolate Bar, Comment by Debby on April 23, 2014 - Report this comment
I remember the treasure bar and they also had a bar called the virgina bar that was a jersey milk with peanuts. If I recall correctly the four flavor bar was dark chocolate.
Wetson's , Comment by PM7 on April 23, 2014 - Report this comment
I loved Wetson's food yes. And also that it was my very first place of Employment. It is just too bad they had dirty little secrets regarding the Management in certain B'klyn locations, Don't worry it had nothing to do with the food. Let's just say it was the change of times for women in the work industry.

Butternut Candy Bar, Comment by earl mccain on April 21, 2014 - Report this comment
If you saw a Butternut candy bar in a Dollar Tree store in Alabama then it would be about 20 years old.The company has been out of business a long time.Wish it was true though.
Tuna Twist, Comment by Dan Smith on April 21, 2014 - Report this comment
The Onion Twist was my families favorite. I am also surprised to know many people remember this and miss it. Maybe they will bring it back??? I hope it won't be "New & Improved"!
Hunt's Skillet Dinners, Comment by Dianna on April 21, 2014 - Report this comment
I absolutely loved the skillet Oriental. That was my fav. There is nothing even close to it out there on the market. Never tried the Lasagna but after reading all these comments, I sure would if you would bring them back!!!!

Hunt's Skillet Dinners, Comment by Steve on April 20, 2014 - Report this comment
We also lived on this stuff, especially the lasagna, after we got married in 1972. It's the only thing I have ever grieved for this long. We still call it the "skillet lasagna effect" when any item we really like is removed from the market.
