Black Cat Bubble Gum, Comment by Deevo on October 20, 2014 - Report this comment
LOVE black cat, I tell my wife and kids about it but they don't like licorice. Every once in a while at Christmas a kiosk will open in the mall selling retro candy (Licorice Fountain etc.) but never found Black Cat gum. Where have all the good times gone!!
Chew Chew Cookies, Comment by Deevo on October 20, 2014 - Report this comment
Agreed, Sneeking into the pantry without mom catching me was worth the risk for Chew Chew's. Need to start a campaign to bring them back.

Shake And Bake For Hamburgers, Comment by jimmy on October 20, 2014 - Report this comment
contacted kraft and explained the situation to see what they would do. heres reply: Re: Your Comment/Question Case ID: 25777547 canada.kitchens@casupport.com (canada.kitchens@casupport.com) General Foods - Good Seasons - Shake 'n Bake Hamburger - NEW! - mix box - 1970's General Foods - Good Seasons - Shake 'n Bake Hamburger - NEW! - mix box - 1970's View slide show (1) View on Flickr [Go to Flickr] Hi Jimmy, Thank you for visiting http://www.kraftcanada.com and for your interest in our Shake 'N Bake products. It's great to hear from consumers who are looking for our products because it lets us know how much you enjoy them. If products don't seem to be popular with our consumers, and demand starts to drop, a decision is made to discontinue the item. Once this decision is made, we stop making the product and the remaining supply is shipped from our warehouse to the grocery stores. At this time there are no plans to bring back our discontinued products, but we are always cooking up something new to help you live and eat better so you may discover a new favourite! Because we have so many different products introduced over the years, as they become discontinued after a long time it becomes difficult to maintain records of every product we've created. I will be sure to let our team know of your interest in having it make a comeback. Again, thanks for contacting us, and I hope you'll continue to enjoy our products. Kim McMiller Associate Director, Consumer Relations
Pizza Spins, Comment by Wayne Russell on October 20, 2014 - Report this comment
Pizza Spins bring back memories of sitting around the TV with Mom and Dad and watching the greatest TV shows ever eating the greatest chip/snack ever made. The flavor was so awesome I'd be sure to lap up the leftover spice crumbs and sides of the package!
Mars Bar (original), Comment by dsindm on October 19, 2014 - Report this comment
This wasn't unique to the Mars Bar, but the other thing about it was that it was very BIG compared to the standard sized bars today. Thanks to those above who reminded me that the other difference between the original Mars and the almond Snickers was that the original didn't have caramel.

Aspen, Comment by shera on October 18, 2014 - Report this comment
Loved it!!! Used to have it with cheese puff and watch The Incredible Hulk with Bill Bixby. The really should market it again. It was amazing.
Giant Sweet Tarts (not chewy), Comment by tjsstory on October 18, 2014 - Report this comment
I loved those giant cherry sweet tarts! The chewy ones are not good, IMHO. I also agree with a previous comment about flavor changes from lime to green apple (not a fan!) and the old original Taco Doritos. The Midnight Taco flavor was close, but of course, that was for a limited time and now no longer available. :( Does anyone remember a roll candy like Smarties that were fizzy? I have searched and searched the internet and all I can find are the drink tablets, not the candy. I also remember a roll candy (again, like smarties) where the candies were all different colors like Life Savers without the hole. I grew up in Little Rock, Ark in the 1960s and The Mousetrap Candy Shop was THE BEST. Now that's something I wish would come back...
Norman Cereal, Comment by Sharon L. on October 18, 2014 - Report this comment
Oh how I loved Norman cereal. It was the best! Loved the stickers and had them plastered all over my bedroom door.
Wigwag Chocolate Bar, Comment by beth on October 17, 2014 - Report this comment
Just spoke about the wigwams today during a meeting at work. Grew up in the seventies and dipped into himy Hallowe'en bag to find those first. Had to trade at least two other chocolate bars for one wigwam.

i've been doing some reading and it seems to maybe of been a health issue. i remember it calling for regular ground beef. i don't see why you can't just use a leaner burg if your worried.

Bell Burger, Comment by Julie K on October 17, 2014 - Report this comment
In the early 70's the Bell Burgers were so simple but so good. Hamburger bun, taco meat, grated cheese and mild taco sauce between the buns. The taste changed when they added the Bell Beefer. Taco Bell Bring Back The BELL BURGERS
Winner Suckers, Comment by Barry Pearson on October 16, 2014 - Report this comment
We sold the Pearson Candy Co. and stopped making the Grape Suckers and It's-a-Winners about 1973. We were located in Culver City, California. I've considered producing them again but, the cost of specialized machinery is very high. Sincerely B W Pearson Questions: barrywpearson@yahoo.com

Giant Sweet Tarts (not chewy), Comment by Joseph on October 16, 2014 - Report this comment
I keep reading about three in a pack but when I was a kid in the sixties they use to come one to a pack and they were true giants about 1" thick and 2" diameter
Go Ahead Candy Bars, Comment by Cory on October 16, 2014 - Report this comment
I was the product manager at Nestle responsible for Go Ahead in the late '70's. A great product! The reason it didn't succeed was two-fold: 1) consumers didn't think a product that was somewhat good for you, i.e. nutritional, could also taste great (which it did), and 2) it was priced higher than other chocolate bars because manufacturing costs were higher. Too bad...wonderful product.

Wrapples, Comment by AnonPerson9 on October 15, 2014 - Report this comment
Take an apple, and a wrapple, wrap the wrapple round the apple, add a stick, heat it quick, that's how you make, carmel apples, with wrapples from Kraft! *kid giggles* thanks, mom! Do they still make these? Did we get an answer?
