Used to frequent the one on Northern Blvd. in Roslyn on L.I. Liked their food better than Micky D's. Also remember they were regular donors on Jerry Lewis' MD marathon while they were in business.

Sour Bites, Comment by Wax Frog on March 29, 2015 - Report this comment
One of the good things about getting older is that maybe we'll start taking over as customer base for throwback-candy sellers. Maybe Sour Bites will be resurrected almost by default. Dare I hope?
Moon Sticks, Comment by Tom on March 29, 2015 - Report this comment
My family too thinks I am crazy! However, if you google "space food sticks" you will find great pictures of original packaging. they were mad by Pillsbury. We called them moon sticks but they were sold as "food" and "space food" sticks.
Kellogg's Danish-Go-Rounds, Comment by Sonny King on March 29, 2015 - Report this comment
I was in grade school when these came out but I remember the commercial which, if I recall correctly, included a merry-go-round. They were great. It seems everything was great at that time, compared to today.

OMG! I was starting to think I had imagined those cookies. I have been looking for those things for over 40 years!!!! Whose idea was it to stop making those? Obviously I am still looking....I'm on this site :-(.
Honey Comb Cereal, Comment by Rob Lambert on March 29, 2015 - Report this comment
From the "Pink Panther" cartoon show, 4/11/70 on NBC-TV, another Honey Comb commercial for Archie records. Several kids are dressed hippie style. A dog and costumed gorilla also appear. Archie and Sabrina are pictured on box back surrounding record. Serving as background music: "Catching Up on Fun." On the same show, Sugar Bear, having become an ecology nut, stops The Blob (his thuggish human adversary) from burning trash in his back yard. Sugar Bear's girlfriend, Honey Bear, accompanies him.

These were a staple when i was growing up - I missed them alot once I grew up, but I found that Schwans have them now, or atleast pretty darn close to it! When I first got them, they made me think I was a kid again on a saturday morning!

Milky Bites, Comment by Ali D. LeMort on March 28, 2015 - Report this comment
Be still my dark choc raspberry jelly heart !!!!! Have long fantasized of these memorable delights. 2cts a piece at Irv Silvermans newsstand in E. Rutherford circa 1960's - 1973 prior to my having moved out of state. NOTHING has quite replaced such a taste sensation. NOT even my own attempts at recreation has slaked my desire !!!!! Tis unfair
King Cole BBQ Potato Chips, Comment by Mike Vanidestine on March 28, 2015 - Report this comment
My dad worked for King Cole in the 60's and early 70's. He was their regional number one salesman for several years. He would bring his truck home and pass out free bags to the neighborhood kids where we lived in Winter port Maine. To this day the now adult kids talk about the neighborhood chip man. Miss those chips.

Yes, I used to buy Circus Time Potato Chips in the 60's for a nickel, also haven't heard of them since. They were delicious and today to me the brand that rivals Circus Time are Utz. Cannot find a pic of the package anywhere

I mentioned this chocolate bar to my husband awhile ago, he also remembers it very well. I remember it was shared with family / friends. So many flavors in one chocolate bar! I know many who would love to have this one back!
Sport Cola, Comment by Mike Holland on March 26, 2015 - Report this comment
I remember seeing this commercial in 1966-67. Very catchy and funny. Laugh In was popular on TV. The novelty songs "I Love Onions" and "They're Coming To Take Me Away HA HA" was ringing in my young little ears. What I remember remember about this commercial ad... A football field, Wally Cox, slapstick stuff. The music reminded me of the fifty's TV show 'Car 54'and the Texaco jingle. A male vocal chorus backed with parade music. I remember the lyrics as "How would you like a good swift kick? That's what you get from Sport today. Sport Cola's taste is clicky and clean. They don't add that extra caffine. How would you like a good swift kick? That's what you get from Sport today. Sport Cola's the one. Sport is fun. Why not be a sport today?"
Keebler's German Chocolate Cookies, Comment by Lambikins on March 26, 2015 - Report this comment
I thought these cookies were some childhood delusion. I absolutely loved these. These were the best store bought cookies EVER. I can remember eating them with my mom. I wish they would make them again...

Tang, Comment by Rob Lambert on March 26, 2015 - Report this comment
Lisa: The Tang commercial I mentioned on March 7, I saw on a stream, searching different sites for any Saturday morning memorabilia. I only saw it once, then moved on. It appeared to be on old film. The cartoon funhouse from the Archie show appeared a moment, then went black. It was a weird moment, like I was in second grade again, watching it. I had scanned nearly three dozen sites in the process, I forgot which one the commercial was on. However, I do have, obtained through a private collector, the complete "Heckle & Jeckle" cartoon show from 1/31/70, with the first Tang/Moonwalk ad. The kids are shown, in ordinary clothes, moonwalking on a grassy surface. Ron Dante/Archies sing the jingle. There are private collectors who obtain old TV shows on film (kinescopes) with original network commercials, which are in public domain. Shows are reproduced on VHS or DVD and sold. I am only a collector, not a seller. Unfortunately, YouTube does not have these, and I don't have equipment to do it. Sorry.
