I've told my kids about those before. They were SO yummy! I'm sure they were totally bad for you, too.

I also remember that Popsicle made vanilla ones for a while. They were white and tasted sort of like frozen cream soda.

Yeah, but this was the *powder*.

I also liked Clearly Canadian (peach). And I loved the breakfast bars mentioned--were they Carnation? I liked the chocolate chip version.

Planter's Cheez Balls...I bet they stopped making them because they were making people grow extra heads or something but I don't care, I would buy them in a SECOND if I saw them again...
Not that I could eat them now, but . My grandmother would always bring those with her when she came to visit.

I also LOVED crystal pepsi.

And I have no idea why, but Mother's Cookies - the circus ones with that waxy frosting on them. But I just googled it and it looks like they are back! Still can't eat them though.

Powdered egg nog mix. I've only ever had it at my grandma's. I think it came in a jar and you added a couple of teaspoons to milk and you could have "egg nog" any time of year.

When I was PG with DD2, I *craved* Jello Pudding Pops and Bonkers candy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3o9Cnvgqnqs

Neither were available

When I was growing up, the soda pop was in these metal coolers and the bottles (yes, real glass bottles) hung from this grid. You put in your coin (a dime, I think) and it would release this lever and you could pull your bottle through. The front of the case had the bottle opener. I really miss vended soda in a bottle. Yeah, you can get a few of them in specialty stores, but they're not all available and none are vended this way any more.

I miss the lunch counter at the local pharmacy where I grew up. There was a real soda jerk and I would be able to ask for extra syrup in my sodas. The ice cream was real and homemade. I could get all sorts of creamy and cold desserts made to order right in front of me. Root beer was the best. A cold root beer with an extra shot of syrup. So sweet!

ETA: Oh, another store in town (the Murphy's Five and Dime, I think) had an AUTOMAT. It was left over from the 50's, I think, because I never saw them any other place. They weren't popular anymore, I don't think. I loved it, though. It makes me long for those earlier days.

(I guess these aren't actual foods, but are food related. Sorry.)

Crystal pepsi
Jumping jack doritoes

schwan's breaded vegetbles- They looked kind of like mozzerela sticks from the out side but instead of cheese inside they had different vegetables- corn, and okra are the two I remember well.

Kinder eggs- Love them.
Real european fanta

That was my favorite too! I didn't realize they had actually completely stopped making it I just thought it was hard to find And I wasn't really a kid when I was eating it, I was in college.

I don't remember either of these but they are both cracking me up

I miss Marathon bars. They were candy bars made of a long braid of caramel covered in chocolate. YUM!

Hmm also for you Californians: Naugles which Del Taco bought out. They had a CHEESE BURRITO....just cheese and a touch of red sauce, like a quesadilla but rolled up like a burrito and much much more cheese. The cheese wasn't even melted but that is part of what made it good. I got those all the time until I was about 6 and Del Taco bought them out.

Then Del Taco had a "deli style burrito" when I was around 10. Wraps weren't in vogue 18 years ago so I just loved getting turkey, ham, cheese, lettuce, tomato and secret sauce rolled up in a tortilla!

Both of those things would make me sick now but I loved them then!

Do they still have Flaky Flix, Dunkaroos? Loved those, too.

OMG, I usually HATE packaged cookies, but I would kill for some Magic Middles!!! Maybe I shouldn't read this thread, I'd forgotten about those and now I really want them

I LOVED Clearly Canadian and Crystal Pepsi! We would have dates with our grandparents and I remember loving Chicken Little sandwiches from KFC and Burger Buddies from Burger King. Liked the little sandwiches, I guess LOL.

Is anyone else seriously upset with Chick-fil-a for changing the chicken salad sandwich? It was awesome chicken salad on perfectly toasted white bread and I'd dip it in the yummy but horribly unhealthy barbeque sauce.

I don't like the new one. While it is good, it's just not the same. It has fancier bread and lettuce, which is fine. But they changed the actual chicken salad recipe and it sucks now. Maybe it is a little healthier, but I didn't go to chick-fil-a for healthy food. I don't eat fast food much, but that used to be my standby. It had been ever since my grandmother introduced me to it as a kid. I can't believe they don't have it anymore.

There was this breakfast cereal- I think it was called "Crazy Cow" or something? It came in either chocolate or strawberry flavor and looked like Coco Puffs. The idea was that it turned the milk into chocolate or strawberry milk after the cereal was gone. Must have been coated in Quik!

Actually I was probably in my early 20s when I ate it(I'm 36 now)...but still...I miss it! A lot!

I sometimes find those at those little regional grocers. I have seen them at a Middle Eastern grocer here as well as a European.

I remember Dunkaroos. I can't remember if I liked them or not though.

The thing I miss was this breakfast bread that my mom used to buy. It was like a cinnamon raisin swirl bread with a thick layer of SUPER sugary frosting on the top. Pre-sliced and everything. It was awesome. I don't even remember who made it.
