Yes, Lisa...I so remember the French pastry. They were the best ever.I would get them at Piggly Wiggly's and 7-11.
Koogle Flavored Peanut Butters, Kelloggs , Comment by Rico 44 on January 31, 2015 - Report this comment
Super 2 commercials...all girls under age of 16, so there were serious legal ramifications, resulting in death of advertising (print and. T.v.) I drank this stuff all the time..at age 9
Baby Ruth Ice Cream Bars, Comment by Carol AKA Neacie on January 31, 2015 - Report this comment
Wow! I loved Baby Ruth Ice Cream Bars. As a young girl living in the country in Arkansas, one of my favourite summer past-times was taking a short cut through the cotton fields to get to Ms Lucy's corner store to buy a Baby Ruth Ice Cream Bar. It was so good, I didn't wait until I got home, but ate it right there, savouring every morsel of the best Dessert ever. Fond and delicious memories of my childhood. I could use one right night -LOL
Banana Dreamboats, Comment by MissingAnOldie on January 30, 2015 - Report this comment
I remeber Grandma going to the Hostess outlet and bringing us 10 grandchildren boxes of snacks that were on clearance. My absolute FAVORITE was the SPICED APPLE or RAISIN cake. They were dense and sweet. I have not seen them anywhere for decades. Anyone seen anything close to them????
Fruit Float, Comment by Lindy on January 30, 2015 - Report this comment
Remember the tv commercial for fruit float? "I bet ya love fruit float but I bet ya can't say it three times".
Cheez Wiz, Comment by Lindy on January 30, 2015 - Report this comment
Kraft had another cheese spread in a smaller jar that could be reused as a juice glass. It wasn't as soft & runny as Cheez Wiz and came in a few flavors.
McDLT, Comment by Lindy on January 30, 2015 - Report this comment
I loved the McDLT. Just didn't care for the big honking container it came in.
Rice Krinkles, Comment by Rob Lambert on January 30, 2015 - Report this comment
On a recent antique junket, I found the cloth Jughead crown hat that was a Post mail-in premium in early 1970. You needed two dollars and a triangle-shaped proof-of-purchase seal found on side of box (Rice Krinkles, Honey Comb, Alpha Bits, Crispy Critters and Super Sugar Crisp).
Space Food Sticks, Comment by Brenda L. on January 30, 2015 - Report this comment
I do remember these! saw 'em advertised on TV and on the grocery store shelves but my mom didn't buy stuff like that. She didn't "believe in it". In 1989 when I was on my own in my early 20's I bought them a few times and liked them... but then they disappeared! I think Pillsbury should bring them back. They could create a gluten free and make them less sugar nutritionally complete and market them all over again!
Camp Steaks, Comment by Peter on January 29, 2015 - Report this comment
Found them at Marina Ralph's, thanks to one of the previous comments. Bought all they had, 5 packs but didn't realize there was a best by date of 3/15/15 till we cooked a package tonight so hopefully I remember to eat all by then. Must say, one of the few things that tasted like it did when I was a kid. As an adult, I find most things don't taste as good or like how I enjoyed it as a kid. People have told me my taste buds as an adult probably changed. If so, I'm so glad that the Camp's meat hasn't changed and brought back some great childhood memories and tastes.

Pringle and WISE chips are good too
Caravelle Candy Bar, Comment by Katrina on January 29, 2015 - Report this comment
Caravelle was the best! My all time favorite candy bar. I can remember just savoring the candy bar during high school. They need to bring it back - even if for a limited time! The 100,000 doesn't compare - not near as rich and creamy.
Sandy's Hamburgers, Comment by Leslie Owen on January 29, 2015 - Report this comment
So the Big Scott burgers were what compared to the Big Macs. I seem to have like it better.

Looking for a picture of the old fashioned jack cookies
Sundown Suppers TV Dinners, Comment by wanna on January 29, 2015 - Report this comment
Does anyone remember the old fashioned jack cookies? There was a man in the center and you could eat around and save the man for last.
Chocolate Soldier Soft Drink, Comment by Patrick G. on January 29, 2015 - Report this comment
My brothers and I would bug our dad to death for a dime to buy Chocolate Soldiers, in bottles, when we camped at Lake Tenkiller in Oklahoma back in the early sixties. We each could chug one in about 30 seconds...they were great!
Piccadilly Circles, Comment by annette on January 29, 2015 - Report this comment
Loved picadilly circles. I used to go with my girlfriend to stay with her grandma for two weeks out of the summer and we would always have them. Been trying to find them for years. Please someone bring them back!
Velamints, Comment by musky mushki on January 29, 2015 - Report this comment
I've never eaten a velamint in my life but I wanted to leave a comment. Actually got here because I was talking to a cartoon bumble bee about some velanint flavoured shampoo.

Sunshine Brand Marshmallow Cookies, Comment by Rob Lambert on January 28, 2015 - Report this comment
Sunshine Sprinkle Cookies were not around long (1977-86). Sunshine now is owned by Keebler, a subsidiary of Kellogg's. This treat sort of resembled Nabisco's Pinwheels, which has chocolate completely covering the marshmallow.
Chicken and Noodles In A Jar, Comment by wanda on January 28, 2015 - Report this comment
I too remember this from way back , as I am 73 years old and still miss finding it in stores and it was definitely College Inn brand in a glass jar.College Inn people...you're missing out on a goldmine here. Please make this product again!!!!!
Sara Lee Banana Cake, Comment by Mixer on January 28, 2015 - Report this comment
In reply to "Miriam".Ive been a mixer for 20 years for Sara Lee and i totally agree with her comment, the reason it is so dry now is because quite simply it comes down to money.Years ago the cakes were made with all butter recipes, then they became part margarine,then half, then full margarine now.Put simply if we kept those original ingredients in still the cake would be much more expensive and people just dont want to pay big bucks for a simple cake. And yes it is a shame.
Cream Of Wheat Banana Flavor, Comment by marlene on January 27, 2015 - Report this comment
I did they stop making banana cream of wheat? I liked that the best!! when people are buying it you stop making it.. When to the store and there must have been hundreds different kinds of Oatmeal but only one cream of wheat. And that was the original kind... I just don't understand?? Please bring it back!!!!!!
