Aspen Apple Soda, Comment by 40 sumthin dood on October 24, 2014 - Report this comment
And there was Diet Aspen too! (or was it called Aspen Lite?) Both were available at the liquor store on the corner when I was in Jr. High and it was my fave. Light and crisp with a Granny Smith (Green) apple bite. The apple on the can was red for some reason.

Stroehmann Applesauce Cups, Comment by Carlene on October 23, 2014 - Report this comment
i really liked the applesauce bars,wish they still made them. i remember going to the bread thrift store,where they had bread and goodies that were day old stuff. beings that they were really reasonable,you could get a cupcake for 25 cents back then. that was way cool. nowadays,i've heard some people take the day olds or more and put them in a freezer,not stroemans either, and bring them out later and they taste yuh. how i long for those day but unfortunatly,thing don't stay the same,i will try making these cupcakes though,thank you for posting.

Bar 6, Comment by Dede on October 22, 2014 - Report this comment
I loved Bar six when I was little, what I remember most is the super thin tinfoil not always coming off the bar and getting zinged in the fillings!
Choco-lite Candy Bar, Comment by Mary Ann on October 22, 2014 - Report this comment
Lord a Mercy I thought I'd died and gone to heaven the first time I tried the Choco-lite. Why oh why did it go away?? I've wondered about it for years. Didn't know anyone else remembered it. It's good to be be in such wonderful company. So sad all good things come to an end. O well :)
Lemon Thin/cookie, Comment by Starr on October 22, 2014 - Report this comment
It was Jack's Lemon Thins, evidently baked in NC They were the best ever. They were nice lemony yellow and with a slight brown edge. I tried to locate last year and they were on a NC grocery site but discontinued. I found something about a lawsuit filed but could not make since of it. Could be people were fighting about the recipe. Is there still a Jacks company for cookies?
Pomac, Comment by Greg Crow on October 22, 2014 - Report this comment
I remember Pomac from the mid to late 60's we would buy it from a vending machine at Novy's service station in Ennis Texas. It tasted horrible, the only reason we bought it was because it came in a clear bottle and looked like beer.
Sugar'n Cinnamon Shaker, Comment by Eric on October 22, 2014 - Report this comment
I was given one of these at my friends 5th birthday party, in 1965, and I still have it. My mom hid it from me for years, knowing I would have lost it in my travels.

When I was growing up in the 80's my mom worked at McD's to help out. I remember begging my dad to take us there and eat almost every night just so I could get a McSteak sandwich. They were the best!!!

Tried to upload a picture of a couple of those whistles but I got a message the file was too large. Tried different formats of lesser size but nothing worked. Sorry.
Bit-O-Honey/$1000,000 Bar, Comment by Rob Lambert on October 21, 2014 - Report this comment
The starting description may be a little off. Appears that Chuck is describing the Nestle $100,000/100 Grand candy bar. Nestle began producing these in 1965, and the name was shortened to 100 Grand in 1972. A German puppet character named Little Hans pushed these in TV commercials for about four years, until 1970. My earliest references on Bit O Honey go back to 1946, when it was made in St. Louis by the Schuster Candy Company.

Triple Triangle Hamburgers, Comment by D.A. on October 20, 2014 - Report this comment
To answer the question from Ronnie, the Dixie site was at Dixie and Nelson Avenue across from the Ranch House. There's now a Dollar General Store on the block where the Triple T and Harley's Service Station was in the 60's and 70's. I worked at TT for awhile. I still have some little plastic whistles with their logo they gave away. They were the first place I know of to have combo meals. The red triangle was a burger, fry and drink. Yellow was a cheeseburger, fry and drink and the white was a fish sandwich fry etc. I was recently told there was a TT on Bardstown and Watterson trail, next to the Collier Court Motel, which coincidently was the last name of the owner of the Triple Triangles. That's why I started researching it. I'm glad I found this place.
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 ( 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 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
