Butternut Candy Bar, Comment by Lau on October 22, 2017 - Report this comment
I love the butter and I know you tried to replace it with snicker extra peanut bar but all your candy is too Sweet, the butter nut was more nuts than candy that that gave it the right amount of sweetness. Pleas bring the butternut bar back for a littler time just for Christmas so we can give them out as gift to our old time friends that would make a American great again.
Wigwag Chocolate Bar, Comment by Leela on October 22, 2017 - Report this comment
I also Loved the Wigwam bars, they were soooo good! I just saw they are selling The Curly Wurly bars at Walmart in the international food section and they are exactly the same just a different name. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Mortons Mini Sugar & Spice Doughnuts, Comment by Misty on October 21, 2017 - Report this comment
The only time I ever had these was at spend-the-night parties at a friend's house. I LOVED them! I recently found a donut that took me right back to those days - Duck Donuts! They make vanilla cake donuts fresh as you order them, and you can top them in a multitude of ways. But it was the one simply coated with cinnamon sugar, still quite warm from the fryer, that hit me in the heart with the taste from my childhood!
Sunshine Brand Marshmallow Cookies, Comment by Bonnie Biancardi on October 21, 2017 - Report this comment
I would make them myself too if I had the cookie recipe. I loved those cookies with the chocolate sprinkles on the soft chocolate cookie and that mound of marshmallow was sooo good!
Carnation Breakfast Squares, Comment by Tim E on October 20, 2017 - Report this comment
I feel the same as all of you- i can still taste those chocolate squares. Over the past 4 decades, i have bought and tried every chocolate breakfast bar i could get my hands on- none ever tasted one bit like the GM Breakfast Squares. But i have found something recently that is really as close as i think we'll ever get to that exquisite taste. Think Thin High Protein Bar: chocolate fudge. OMG it's so close- not too sweet or dense, brownie like feel, mildly chalky center. The first bite sent me reeling from the similarities. Try it and see for yourself.
Banana Flip, Comment by Dave Hauer on October 20, 2017 - Report this comment
When I was a kid I had a paper route in salem, Ohio. After I finished my route I would stop at Lawson's and have a Mickey Bannana Flip and 16oz. pepsi in a glass bottle, did this every day! Never made much money, cuz all spent on this!
Great Shake, Comment by Rob Lambert on October 20, 2017 - Report this comment
Forgot to mention that the Great Shakes radio ad with Happenings aired in August, 1967, on WLS. Still looking for an airing of the Dusty Springfield commercial.
Mcdonalds Golden Nuggets, Comment by Rob Lambert on October 19, 2017 - Report this comment
These were originally called Onion Nuggets (1974), changed to Golden Nuggets. Found no TV commercials, but I did find ads for these and the NEW McBreakfast on flyers by Chicago radio station WCFL, the Top Ten Hits and Albums, from early 1975. Also, a photo of Super CFL's new morning DJs, Dick Saint and Doug Dahlgren. They are shown walking a tightrope which connects the two high-rise buildings which form Marina City (WCFL's home, 300 N. State). A year later, WCFL converted from top 10 to elevator music. In the process, Saint, Dahlgren (and Larry Lujack) were fired, and they reacted outlandishly over the air, as written by Chicago Tribune columnist Gary Deeb. Afterward, Saint and Dahlgren found work at WFLD-TV (same building), recording announcements for the station's blocks of children's/cartoon shows. Dahlgren worked briefly at WRKR in Racine, WI, in 1978.
Great Shake, Comment by Rob Lambert on October 19, 2017 - Report this comment
Another celebrity Great Shakes radio commercial, courtesy of WLS in Chicago. This featured The Happenings (best known for "I've Got Rhythm"), with lead singer Bob Miranda reading from script, and group singing jingle. This was on a Saturday night airing, and the DJ was Ron Riley. While Riley was not as charismatic as Dick Biondi or Ron Britain, he garnered much respect over a career which began in the late 1950s, but faded from the scene by 1970.

I enjoyed the Ribs when when I was growing up in eastern Ohio (mid 70's)....hated it when they stopped having them....wish KFC would bring them back.
