Wampum Corn Chips, Comment by MIke on May 30, 2023 - Report this comment
Wampums were the best and so far unequaled. Yeah I remember the Trader Joes bbq corn chips and they were a runner up. Too bad they don't make them anymore as of 5-2023. Fritos BBQ appear once in a while where I live now, but very unsatisfying even if you've never tried Wampums. It's amazing how varied the chip isle is nowadays, and how bbq flavor is more popular than ever, but you can't find a bbq corn chip. What made Wampums so good was that they were slightly thicker than Fritos and had a heavy layer of a deep brownish red bbq spice that coated the chip like sand. And their square shape was better suited to laying that flavor on your tongue than a curly Frito. I most always chose a bag of Wampums to go with my Gaetano from Giuliano's (for any South Bay people.)
Hoffman's sodas, Comment by Marie Campus on May 29, 2023 - Report this comment
For special occasions we would get a half glass of the Raspberry soda with wine. I'm Italian and was thinking of it when I had a glass of wine with dinner tonight. We all loved it and felt growth up because of the wine added to the soda
Pizza Spread, Comment by Sherri on May 28, 2023 - Report this comment
Thank you to Mike for remembering Spread A Pizza. I write poetry and recently made a reference to Spread A Pizza in my poem. No one in my writing group had heard of it. I couldn’t find anything online about it, but now I have the confidence to keep it in the poem. That stuff was addictive. I ate it every day for a year on English muffins when I was a kid.
Corn Suckers, Comment by Debby on May 28, 2023 - Report this comment
I remember the corn sucker candy as well and loved finding money in them! Does anyone have a picture of them?
Prontos, Comment by Bruce on May 27, 2023 - Report this comment
We well fondly remember Prontos ca. 1977-1978 while residing in Keene, Texas and were disappointed when we could find them no longer at the grocery store. While we don’t have as colorful an experience to share as a number of posts here, we certainly bought lots of them—-healthy, great taste and novel shape. In 1991, we were having dinner at someone’s house and were startled and gleefully surprised to see a bowl of them served at the table. We couldn’t believe our eyes. After first taste, we immediately called them Prontos! The hosts corrected us, saying they were Sun chips and at our request, they showed us the bag. We depleted the bowl’s contents and seconds. Next day we went in search at our local grocer, picked up a bag to sample and were gloriously reunited with our favorite chip of yesteryear.
