We ate an entire box at one sitting recently. Someone gave it to our family as a "joke" present--we could not eat it fast enough!

Still available, and yummy....Captain Crunch, Crunchberries and Peanut Butter Captain Crunch cereals. They shred the top of your mouth eating them because of the rough texture, but we love them!

Peanut Butter Captain Crunch leaves that film of slick fattiness on the roof of your mouth that can soothe the torn up nature created by the rough texture.

For anyone in the Midwest, or close, HyVee sells their own brand of Cheez Balls. They are very close to Planter's, but are only available every once in a while.

I remember the Pop Shoppe. It was at our Farm and Home Supply store. My favorite was the Lime Rickey flavor.

I miss the old recipe Taco flavored Doritos (the new recipe is yuck), and every Christmas I crave Wink sour soda. I also miss Tangy Taffy flavors like chocolate and vanilla.

Does anyone remember PDQ? My gramma would by that instead of Nestle powder and I loved it. I used to sneak it and eat it by the spoonful instead of mixing in milk.

Yes, you sure can! I make a ton of popsicles in the summer, and once a month or so I make those.

I don't remember that stuff, but that reminded me that my mom use to buy grape Koolaid in the can. Yk, the sweetened stuff. I would eat it by the spoonful. Wow, that thought makes my teeth HURT now! Ick!

I had forgotten about the Magic Middles and the Clearly Canadian!

I used to love Shasta pop (soda). Its still around in the 2 liter size. But these were small glass bottles in lots of different flavors, my favorites were a black cherry and this neon green one, can't remember the flavor. OH, I almost forgot the pineapple was good too!

Maybe someone here will remember this candy, no one I mention it to ever does. A few times when I was very young(mid 70's) my mom bought me this candy. It was in a little toy skillet. Filled with candy shaped like a sunny side up egg. The texture is hard to describe. It was hard but easily broken. I loved it!

Oh, lord! I luuuuuurv Count Chocula. When I was pg with DD2 I had an unavoidable craving for it. I tried to rationalize it by having only one bowl a day (which was SO hard!), but DH ratted me out to the midwife.
She looked at me and said, "Really?" "Really?"
Yeah, that was shameful end of my CC fix.

Speaking of Captain Crunch and Peanut Butter Crunch... we used to eat chocolate ice cream topped with Peanut Butter Crunch and bananas... Gah! Yum!

I vaguely remember PDQ... I can picture the box in my head, but I can't remember the taste.

"Magic Middles" cookies
"Pizzeria" chips

They don't make Clearly Canadian anymore????

And, my all-time favorite that I am in permanent mourning over... JOSTA!!! It was a soft drink made by Pepsi (the only thing I will drink from Pepsi, too... gotta stay loyal to Coca-Cola, being from Atlanta! I literally drove to every store and contacted Pepsi, called the local bottling place, etc. when they were phasing it out in a desperate effort to find more. Josta, oh Josta, how I miss you!!

the original "vernors" soda-pop. used to be a regionally made product, but then it was bought by some big company and now it sucks.

we used to get a vernor's float.. made with vanilla custard ice cream.... YUM!

Undercover Bears Oatmeal
Oatmeal with packet of "fruit" gel for drawing on the oatmeal
Clearly Canadian (cherry)
Pizzeria chips (was so disappointed when those disappeared)
Sweet and sour suckers (delicious)
Hidden Valley Pizza Ranch Dressing
Crystal Pepsi

There are probably a few other things that I'm not remembering right now.


I remember New York Seltzer. My grandmother drank it all the time and would share it with me

Anyone remember Hidden Treasures cereal? Super Mario soda comes back to mind even though I only had it maybe two times.


Has anyone else noticed that the processed foods of the 80's (and earlier, I'm sure) seemed to be made with higher quality ingredients than the grossness that is the processed foods of today?

I would do just about anything for some more of those flour tortilla Keebler chips. Cheese or cinnamon sugar. So freakin' good.

Oh my gosh, yes. I haven't thought about that in years.

I didn't read the whole thread, so I'm not sure if someone already mentioned this product... New York Seltzer. They were similar to the Clearly Canadian drinks that others have mentioned. I especially liked the Cream Soda and the Raspberry ones.

I've heard that some people have found some in the last few years, but they are entirely different. Now they are bitter or something. Not really the same thing at all.

My brother and I bring up Choc-o-bliss by Hostess all them time... Those were the best... and New York Seltzer, YUM.
post #140 of 151
I remember Clearly Canadian! I was addicted to it for awhile when I was in my early teens or preteens. Hadn't thought about that stuff in years. I also haven't seen banana popsicles in at least twenty years and I LOVED those when I was a kid. Every time I lost a tooth, I got a banana popsicle. I used to pull and wiggle my teeth to try and hurry up the process because I liked those banana popsicles so much!
