Go look at the box - it now has "natural tara gum" whatever that is. They can still say they are all natural and I guess it's more pronouncable than other ingredients they could have chosen. Wonder if they still air those old commercials with the little kids reading the label - somehow I doubt it.

ohhh I forgot about Magic Middles!

DH remembers an ice cream sandwich called a Creamy Burger from middle school lunch - it was neopolitan ice cream in between two round cookies, dipped in chocolate shell, so when you bit into it you didn't know which flavor you'd get. Anyone know anything about those?

Me too! Still the best store bought ice cream around.

There was something called "Pizza Spins". As I remember, they were crunchy spicy cracker-like things. I remember having a huge fight with my cousin because she finished off the box when I was out of the room.

I think I remember these. Soooo good.

In preschool i used to have pink pudding in a can. i have no idea the brand, but i remember it had a tab top and I'd always break the tab off and they'd have to get a can opener to open it.

This thread is so bad, but oh so good

1. jello 123-I think there's a recipe on regular jello boxes to mix with cool whip and it sounds like it may approximate 1-2-3

2. New York Seltzer- peach all the way (liked clearly canadian too but not as good as ny)

3. Magic middles

4. Jello pudding pops- though I have been able to find these just in different packaging (and not quite as good as I remember)

5, Anybody remember when McD's ran an Asian chicken nugget special- there were like 3 different Asian dipping sauces- they were so GOOD.

Might have cheez waffies where I live- they look familiar but I've never tried them, now I want to but perhaps its better if I let sleeping dogs lie.

They sure do. DH & I devoured a bag last week.

Not from my childhood, but last spring, Trader Joe's had some cereal that was like mini wheats with strawberry filling. It was good. But even better was the cocoa variant that had nutella filling in it. OMG. It was divine. I loved it. My kids loved it. So did all our friends who were lucky enough to try it. And then of course they discontinued it. Wish I'd known, I'd have bought a couple of cases. I haven't found anything similar, but it was imported from Germany.

They have these at a European deli near us. So cute!

I totally second the Clearly Canadian. I had completely forgotten about those. There was some kind of blackberry flavor that I LOVED. The new packaging looks terrible--too bad they changed it.

I remember these - SO GOOD! Wow, now I really want one of these

Also, Bar None candy bars. They were my absolute favs. I had almost forgotten about them until someone else mentioned them. And Orange flavored bubble gum, like Bubblicious or Hubba Bubba. I've looked for this on and off for years and have yet to find orange anywhere.

I haven't seen Count Chocula cereal in a while. That stuff has been around forever and now suddenly I can't find it. It's soooo good too, I can easily eat an entire box at one time when I have a craving for it. (Which fortunately is only about once a year! LOL)

I miss 7-Up Gold. And I don't know if I ever drank banana quik or if my Dad used to wax on about it. But it sounds good, not that I'd buy Nestle now.
I remember banana quik! It was my favorite of all the flavors . I used to walk over to Kroger to buy it during my break from Revco (now CVS) when I was in high school in the late 90s. I guess it didn't sell very well because I haven't seen it in at least 10 years now.

Depends on where you live. Some States get it year round, some only get it around Halloween. We never used to get it until we got our second Target store, and now we get it for Halloween there and I saw it at Red Apple this year too.

Target and Wal-Mart are among the stores that have been known to carry these more scarce cereals during October in time for Halloween. They can be found year-round in the Midwest at Wal-Mart Supercenters and on Amazon.com, and in the Southeast in many stores. In addition, they have been spotted year-round in some Wal-Mart Supercenters in the East.
Monster cereals are a pop culture icon, though.

Last year I found a lady on ebay that sells them year round.. I bought 6 boxes.

I clearly do not live near a tractor supply store because I find it a bit strange that they would sell cheese balls...

Pop Shop

We used to have this place called the Pop Shoppe and you would get a crate and then pick different flavoured pops that came in glass bottles, they still sell the pop at certain stores but I think the best part was going and picking out the different flavours in that little red crate!
