imagining my shopping cart full of dark leafy greens, organic eggs, lentils, avocadoes, whole wheat pasta and an entire CASE of Planter's Cheez Balls
DUDE. Me, too. I have like a hundred pics of me as a toddler munching on those things and can still remember them. I miss their chemical goodness so much.

I'm in Southern IL and have been to like a million Rural Kings and never seen them at any. Now I am just dying to cross the border to find cheese balls at a Rural King. Can you tell I'm pg?

Haven't read the rest of this thread, but there was a candy bar in probably the early 90s called "PB Max"

OMG it was so good. Peanut butter and chocolate is my favorite combo, and this was a shortbread type cookie with PILES of CREAMY peanut butter on top, and then these little crunchy balls of cookie, and all dipped in chocolate.

It was FANFREAKINTASTIC.

OMG, there is a wikipedia page about it.

It talks about the Mars family's hatred of peanut butter. Huh? Who hates peanut butter? I mean, I can see avoiding it if you have peanut allergies, but hate it? That seems uncalled for.

It's really hard to find but I loved Dunkaroos as a kid...I found a dollar general that sold them while I was pregnant and bought two boxes.

OMG! Really?!

I LOVED dunkaroos!

And Koala Yummies...but I think maybe you can still find those if you know where to look?

ETA: I just realized I've said "OMG!" three times in two posts on this thread. I obviously get too excited about out-dated candy.

I clearly remember the specialty beverages that kids drank when I was in Elementary:

Clearly Canadian at St Louis Bread Co
Fruitopia at school from the vending machine
Sobe when your aunt let you and your cousins get it at the gas station
and... Orbitz. Disgusting beverage with floating bits of goo. Does anyone remember this? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orbitz_%28soft_drink%29

I saw that other people posted a lot fo my similar things.

O'boises potato chips were so good. i think about them all the time. They were so crunchy and delicious and VERY salty.

Jello pudding pops were one of my favorite things about vacation.

New York Seltzer water. I LOVED this stuff!!

Crystal Pepsi

And of course, Clearly Canadian. My sister and I came across this several months ago, so you can have itg mailed to your house. I always loved the black cherry.

coconut cakes, but I think they still sell those at the hostess store. They are round chocolate cakes with a white filling inside covered in marshmallow and colored coconut. Just loved those as a kid but I think I've had them within the last 5-10 years

Also remember "push-ups" and I have no idea if they still make them or not (frozen popsickle thing) it was orange and you peeled the top paper off then pushed up the little plastic stick in the center. Havent seen them but then again, haven't looked.

I had no idea they didnt make jello pudding pops anymore, oh I'm so behind the times... but I am quite sure we bought a huge canister of cheez balls a few years ago because I bought it just for the container lol so they must make them somewhere.. they do make cheese curls which are almost the same just different shape right?

I loved Wacky Wafers (sweetheart like candy, came like 10 to a pack all dif flavors in wrapped a clear freezepop type of plastic tube thing)

Remember the Kaboom cereal too that someone mentioned. Have no idea why that has stood out for me all these years but I loved it.

Thank Goodness they still make Capt'n Crunch. I still indulge every now and then.

I also loved the grape Hubba Bubba bubblegum... do they still make it? And then the Big Red (sticks of cinnamon gum) ... havent seen them but it could be where I shop nowadays

Hostess Snowballs - yep, they still make those. Mmmm....
