Foods you loved as a kid that are no longer sold - Page 3

Breyer's vanilla, before they started adding guar gum & whatever else is in there now. Ironic, since they used to have the commercial w/the little boy struggling to read the competitor's ingredients, but the Breyer's ingredients were something like "cream, sugar, vanilla beans".

I loved the oatmeal that came with the fruit sauce to draw with!
I used to love Jello 123, but they quit making it.
For the past couple weeks, I've been really missing this cereal I used to LOVE as a kid. I have no idea what it was called, but it was little mini-wheat type things with fruit filling inside. The best was the strawberry and the raspberry. I think they also had gross flavors like raisin. I have no idea why they stopped making it...it was so good!
I know there are probably tons more that I can't think of off the top of my head.

We used to get a ton of stuff from Schwann's. My mom still does occasionally. Their ice cream is the best non-homemade ice cream I've ever had. Their rainbow sherbert is so yummy!! And they have the best frozen chicken fingers ever. mmm.

Mmm, Cheez Waffies. Another benefit of growing up in NJ. Still available in this part of VA - maybe I'll get some today!

I had no idea they stopped making the instant breakfast bars!

Nah, I can't eat it anyway. But thanks! My grandmother used to get them just at Christmas so it was a treat.

I don't even look at those sections of the supermarket anymore since we can't eat them anyway. Glad to know some of it is still around.

There was a store I got a few things from a few years back for my brothers. It was like nostalgic candy store or something like that. I think they had marathon bars, and sky bars, and that gum that was shaped like little gold nuggets in a burlap bag....

Milk Break Bars. Supposedly high in calcium, really just a glorified chocolate bar. When we moved to a different state in 1985 and could not find these, my grandmother used to send them to us.

I also loved the oatmeal you could draw in.

Just thought of another one...O'Boise potato chips, gawd I loved those.

Crystal Pepsi! Loved that stuff.

I also loved Clearly Canadian - peach flavor was my fave but I also liked black raspberry or something like that. Mmmmm

There used to be a Raisin Squares/Wheats cereal, which was filled with raisin, but I distinctly remember an apple and a strawberry filled shredded wheat. I think it was called Fruit Wheats? I only remember that because I hate shredded wheat, so I'd just crack them in half with my teeth and scrape out the apple, like a poor-man's fig newton. Glad to see that cereal made someone happy out there as it was making me miserable. I swear I'll lose my mind if Cocoa Puffs ever leave the market.

I loved Quisp too! You can still buy it online from Quaker or from resellers, but it is kinda expensive for cereal.

I also loved the Carnation Instant Breakfast bars. I forgot about them until I saw this thread.

Immediately, my childhood favorite popped into my head. Jello Pudding Pops. I think maybe once in the last 4 years, my DH and I have found them in a grocery store during summer. they were not the same. smaller, and the icy coating on the outside wasn't thick enough to bite off.

How I miss those. Fudgecicles... just a sad second.

I'vebeen seeing Big Red in stores lately. IN fact I tend to bring it to Christmas Eve at my sister's house.

Yes!!!! Jello Pudding Pops were the absolute best. I wonder if you could make them yourself with pudding mix?? Wanna try? I think I might!

What else - oh does anyone remember somethign that was like a fruit roll-up, formed into a tube, with some ooey-gooey fruity stuff inside? It reminds me of taking those iowa basics tests. LOL

Teddy Grahams - the cereal, chocolate. They were the only cereal I would consider eating when soggy, they tasted just like soaked too long oreos.

I was just going through the thread to see if anyone was going to say Jello Pudding Pops. LOVED those!

Jello 123 is so good, i think i saw a generic version in the grocery the other day, but i don't eat gelatin anymore
I had completely forgot about the mini wheat cereal, it was so good. My mom wouldn't let me get any cereal that had like over 11 g of sugar or something, and this one was over. I would buy it when i had my own money to spend.

I am sure that there are others that I will spend the rest of the day longing for!!!
Yummy, chocolate pudding in a can. You had to be careful when you licked the lid, i was always scared i was going to slice off my tongue.

Raspberry cream, my favorite. I could only get it in ohio up until a few years ago, but here they still sell the blackberry but it's hard to find, and way more expensive now.

Thrifty's was bought by Rite Aid but it is still sold there.

Ha, I was just at big lots today and they had clearly canadian for .70! I thought of this thread and bought 3 they had one raspberry cream left and i snatched it up, and got a couple kiwi limes. Those were the only flavors.
