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

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!!
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.

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 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.

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.

|Kelilah||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!|

|Jgitsch357||My brother and I bring up Choc-o-bliss by Hostess all them time... Those were the best... and New York Seltzer, YUM.|
|03-16-2010 06:00 PM|
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.

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

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
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?

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!

"Magic Middles" cookies
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!!

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 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!

|Honey693||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.|

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.

|redhotmama||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.|
|01-04-2010 02:12 AM|
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!
