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.

SMACK ramin- i loved the stuff but cant find it anywhere!

Your life doesnât change by the man whos elected. If your loved by someone you can't be rejected... decide what to be and go be it! If your a caged bird brake in and demand that somebody free it.

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.)

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.

Happily married to DH for 6 years, in process to foster-adopt 3 children DD4, DS3 and DS2. We may be bringing half brother age 9 one day as well! We are not infertile, we just have decided that since there are precious children who need homes there is no need for us to have biological children.

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!

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.

How I miss those. Fudgecicles... just a sad second.
Funny story about jello pudding pops. My mom bought some for us once when
I was a kid. My dad was looking at the ingredients and the sell by date and said somehting like these things are so fake I bet they glow in the dark. My sisters and I ran in the bath room slammed the door and the freaking vanilla parts totally where glowing! Well we never got them again! And shortly after they vansihed from the market shelves!

I remember when Ding Dongs and Ho-Ho's were wrapped in aluminum foil. I loved playing with those foil squares when I was finished eating them. I haven't eaten those treats for over 20 years, probably. But more than the treats, I remember the foil. I'm told they don't package them that way any more.

Yes, yes, yes! Fanta Limon is my absolute favorite soda ever, and you can't get it here. And the Fanta Orange that you can get in the US is not as good as Fanta Orange in Europe - too sweet.

I remember loving Halfsies and McDonalds shakes (before they made them thicker).

I don't know how things are elsewhere, but it is a law where I live that restaurants can't sell foods with trans-fats in them. The restaurant where I work had to change a lot of their recipes because of that, and had to do away with other things altogether (couldn't reformulate the recipe to taste good).

Carnation Instant Breakfast Powder in coffee flavor.

Carnation Instant Breakfast bars

Grape creamsicles. I only ever see orange anymore. You used to be able to get a pack of grape, cherry & orange creamsicles.

Keebler had chocolate chocolate chip cookies. This was before the "soft" cookies took over and these disappeared. They were crunchy and so yummy.

Hubba bubba in chocolate. Not the chocolate mint, just plain chocolate. Circa 1984.
