How about the bubble gum albums in the late 70's or early 80'2? They had grooves and everything just like an album, but it was bubble gum and it came in a small cardboard case, just like an album cover. I think they were either a little pricey or weren't around long - The one & only I remember I had was, The Knack "My Sharona".

For Cali and Dee....the pudding you're talking about Cali was called "Spoon Candy". It was the best! The 1-2-3 that Dee is talking about was called "Jello 1-2-3" and had 3 layers of jello. The first layer (bottom) looked like regular jello, then the second layer was a bit lighter (don't remember what was added to that layer) and the third layer was even lighter. The spoon candy was a mousse like pudding and the chocolate that you pour on top hardened. Just like what we know today as "Magic Shell". I miss "Spoon Candy"!

FOOD STICKS!! Yes, I remember them as part of the Carnation breakfast line. THere were breakfast bars, instant breakfast and food sticks. They were the first to go then breakfast bars and now only instant breakfast still sees shelf space. I remember them as sort of pasty, gritty sort of tootsie rollesque.

About the drink pouches that AmyT was asking about, it might be a product i remember from the early 70s called "Super Sip"?? Several clear bags of juice came packaged in a dark blue cardboard box. I think the little pointed straws were glued to the sides of the pouches so you had to be careful when you pulled them off before you jabbed the pouch with them. I think they came into different flavors, like grape, fruit punch, and orange-pineapple. Hope that helps.

During the late 70s and early 80s, my grandmother used to serve us kids cheese doodles, but not any cheese doodle, nope, these were hollow, more the size of a thumb than a pinky finger, and slightly squished in appearance. They were much 'softer' to the touch, to the tongue and on the palate. They kinda melted in your mouth to a degree, and didn't yellow the fingers half as much! I loved those, the last bag I bought was around 1986-7, never saw them again, anywhere... :(

* I'm trying to remember the name of the chewing gum that was marketed to kids in the early 1970s, whose gimmick was: "IT TASTES LIKE ICE CREAM!" And @ "nerfy" - yeah, I occasionally find myself wondering about "Chipos" myself... I'd liked the "gimmick" (sold in "boxes" instead of bags, with the cartoon of the "cook" on the back of the package working an processing line where the chips were being "flash fried" with "lightning bolts"), but even more surprising I'd liked those funky chips themselves, which were truly horrid, but perhaps the "newness" and quirkiness is more of what got me hooked.

YES! YES! YES! Pat from Philly wrote a comment on 6/14/2010 about the orange/lemon fruit drink named "BLEND". I too am from Philly and have been searching the net and the stores. I even drove to the store we use to get it from--Acme Market at Sedgewick St. and Germantown Ave. On a hot summer day there was nothing like ice cold BLEND. Would LOVE to find it. If anyone knows where to get it let know at tweetybirds@comcast.net

I love this message board. Does anyone remember chicken salad in a can? This was mid 70s/ early 80s. It was sold in the grocery store by the deviled ham, and it sounds so gross but I loved it. There was chicken or tuna salad in a silver can with a pull off lid. We ate it at picnics. Thanks so much.

Yes! I remember BLEND although no one in my family remembers it. I thought I was nuts. WE used to have it in the fridge all the time.

Does anyone know the name/brand of a yellow rectangular-shaped snake cake with a banana cream filling? Was my favorite in the late 60s-70s, sold in the Seattle-Tacoma area. These aren't the twin spice cakes with banana cream. Help!?!

How about Nabisco Yum-yums? (They are like the Girl Scouts Caramel deLites) Or the Chung King dinners (the 2 cans taped together). Loma Linda Ruskets cereal. There was also a frozen milk shake concentrate in a plastic tub, about the size of a plastic glass. You scoop some out, and mix with milk for a milk shake.

Does anyone remember a candy from the late 80's or early 90's that came in a small square container, when you pulled back the top, there was a creamy candy with like a chocolate hazelnut on one side and a vanilla on the other?? It also came with a little spoon.

There was a pudding in the 70's from the refrigerated section that was in a paper container that you ripped open and basically squeezed into your mouth. I remember my favorite was butterscotch. Anyone know the name of it?

Does anyone remember a chicken and noodle dinner that came in a box. I think it was made by Kraft. It had rectangular noodles and little bits of chicken and the noodles and it had sauce with little bits of red in it. We had it about once a week and now I can't remember the name.

Does anyone remember breakfast squares that came in different flavors? They were like a cake, covered in icing--they were a bit chalky in texture, if I recall. I can actually still taste the chocolate if I concentrate hard. Amy, THANK YOU for asking about the drinks in a clear plastic bag! I've been thinking of those a lot lately and thought maybe I just imagined them. I loved the red.

Traci, this morning the product Carnation Breakfast Bars came into my head. I Googled around. Then, through this site, I was told that there were also Carnation Breakfast Squares. The box looks like I remember, http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3233/2999975591_c967eb1f5e_z.jpg ,but I don't remember the middle layer. The box also says "MOIST". I don't remember it being too moist.

I believe the name of the pink frosted animal cookie from the 60-70 era was Party Time Frosted Animal Cookies. They came in a resealable flip top box. I do not know who the manufacturer was but I have been searching for years..loved them, my childhood favorite ( I also having been searching for Piccadilly cookies- can't find those either so they were probably made by the same company

OMG so many memories I had long forgotten! I'm trying to find out about a popsicle that's been eluding me for so long. My family used to buy them at Safeway here in Alberta. They were HUGE (really tall skinny ones, single stick). I don't think they were the Big Stick Popsicle brand ones because from the very rare photos I have seen, they seem too short(unless I find better photos of actual 70s versions LOL... but I don't recall them being swirled or anything, just solid flavours). Any ideas? I swear I'm not imagining them! LOL

Do you remember around 1978-1982 they sold these disks of processed cheese to melt on bread and they had pizza ones that were mozzarella with bits of pepperoni in them and they had taco ones that were cheddar with bits of ground beef maybe? I'm trying to remember what they were called. This is driving me crazy. Help! :)

Trying to see if ANYONE, remembers the Tripple Whipple Ice Cream Cone, sold by McDonald's, I guess in the mid-70s. No one else seems to remember this. It was pre-made and wrapped, like a Nutty Buddy is wrapped, (if I recall correctly). It was a small scoop of chocolate/strawberry and vanilla ice cream, altogether.

My favorite candy was sour bytes as a kid!! I wish they still made them! They were like pill shapped pastel colored sweet tarts with a different animal stamped on each one.the package was shiny gold foil with a pastel striped tiger on the front! I think it was a tiger lol! I miss the carnation breakfast squares the most and wish they would bring them back! They had choc, peanutbutter, and a cinnamon vanilla type flavor! Each had a real thin layer of icing on top and I can still remember exactly how they taste!once I signed a petition to bring them back! I have never been close to finding a breakfast square with the texture or taste of the breakfast squares. Everything I see is loaded with knoby crunchy hard crap! Why won't anyone make a smooth textured protein breakfast bar again! I also loved space sticks,fizzies that you dropped in water and it made a drink.I loved shake a pudding too!there were these yummy tart apple pop tarts with white squiggly icing in 3 rows on top of the pop tarts, and they were so fresh tasting.I can't remember who made them.they were like tart apple but without the cinnamon.
