Ice Cubes (small chocolate candies), Comment by Frank L. on December 18, 2014 - Report this comment
Hershey's had a similar candy bar. It may still be available, called Hershey's Whipped. I remembered the original from way back but did not remember the name until I came across this posting.
Fluffernutter, Comment by Frank L. on December 18, 2014 - Report this comment
Marshmello Fluff is still made by the Durkee- Mower Co. in Lynn, MA (I believe it's Lynn) This product sponsored lots of kiddie TV programs in the Boston area in the 70s and before.

Rondo Soda, Comment by Tim from Montana on December 18, 2014 - Report this comment
When we were in grade school, my buddy and I would hit the QuikWay down the road two or three times a week to buy Rondos. We'd sit on our bikes and drink two each in the parking lot. We had this perverse joy in the thought that people driving by would think we were two bad kids drinking beer. The cans looked like no other soda can on earth. I love that memory.

Kentucky Fried Chicken's Ribs, Comment by ED L on December 16, 2014 - Report this comment
I had these ribs as a young boy in the 1970's in Gloversville NY. I will forever remember these amazing beef ribs sold by KFC. My older brother would treat me to these ribs from time to time, and now at 52 years old,I can still remember the taste, texture etc.By far the best ribs I have ever had.I think KFC would have no problem selling these again regardless of price.

Caravelle Candy Bar, Comment by John Cannon on December 16, 2014 - Report this comment
I could have sworn there was a malt flavor in these, as if there were small malted milk balls inside with everything else. the wrapper says that there is some artificial flavor...maybe to taste like malt?
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Comment by Rob Lambert on December 16, 2014 - Report this comment
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups actually go back to the 1940s. Hershey bought out the Reese Company in 1963, acquiring the rights to use that brand name. The concept of combining chocolate and peanut butter developed around 1942, as confectioners were trying to produce treats that required less sugar, which was rationed during World War Two. The trick was making that combination taste right. Reese did that. However, Reese was only known around the New York/New England area in the early years. Everyone, of course, remembers the TV commercial series that Hershey made starting in 1970 for Reese's. A businessman, eating a Hershey bar, drops it down an open manhole. The sewer worker emerges, holding a peanut butter jar with candy bar in it. You know the rest.

As I opened a box of "zesty cheddar ranch cheese-it grooves,"all I can think about is Dip in a Chip crackers. Please bring them back in their full trans fat glory! Swiss Cheese crackers too.

Kellogs Caramel Stars, Comment by Rob Lambert on December 15, 2014 - Report this comment
This was really a sixties product. Originally named Kellogg's Sugar Stars. First came out in 1966, and Huckleberry Hound first appeared on the box. In 1967, Huck introduced a Billy Goat character, in a TV commercial, as the new pitchman. The cereal was caramel flavored, and quite good! Sugar/Caramel Stars disappeared before 1968 ended. The commercial with Huck and Billy Goat first aired in Feb., 1967 on the "Mighty Heroes" cartoon show, among others on Saturday morning. 1967 was also the year that Kellogg's and Hanna-Barbera ended the cross-promotion after nine years. H-B characters were replaced by ones created by Kellogg's, such as Ogg the Caveman and the Smackin' Brothers.
Oh Boy Submarine Sandwiches, Comment by Mike Wolf on December 15, 2014 - Report this comment
Where I worked, you couldn't go out and buy lunch. I would buy a box of these Oh Boy Sub Sandwiches, leave them wrapped in foil, on either the dashboard or back ledge of the car (when they had back ledges,) and by time lunch came, the sun would have heated these enough so that the cheese had melted. If it were particularly cold, I open the hood, set them on the top of the intake manifold, and let the engine run until it warmed up. That would be enough to finish defrosting the sandwiches, and melt the cheese. They were cheap, substantial, and well worth the money. I cannot imagine why some frozen food company hasn't paid attention to these posts, and duplicated this product. It would be a great seller. I'd still buy them today.
Koogle, Comment by Mike Lai on December 15, 2014 - Report this comment
Wow!....I so remember this stuff, and about two years ago I think the smell of Nutella made me think of it RIGHT away. Nutella is a bit strong on the chocolate, but it's pretty good. I did try a chocolate peanut butter from...I think "peanut butter company" or somesuch. That one is actually pretty good. I think as a kid I only ever got to taste the chocolate one, but I remember shopping trips where I would see there was a vanilla and banana (that cinnamon one sounds like it would be AWESOME on toast, English muffins,etc) I wish Kraft WOULD consider this product again...even if they had to rework it just a bit (I DO remember it was WAY too sweet). There are now a few "chocolate spreads" by Hershey I have not tried, but I think those will just taste like chocolate and NOT like Koogle. I'm 48 I think I was probly around 11 or 12 when I remember this, AND the TV commercial during Saturday morning cartoons (Another childhood memory that was recently discontinued as well).
Fizzers, Comment by Sandra H on December 15, 2014 - Report this comment
Nan they still make fizzers you can order them on-line on although the shipping may be as much as the item. To me it's worth it though to go back in time You can also get Zotz at novelty candy stores. I have bought them in Kemah, TX and in Missouri.
