Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Donut Man E.M. on July 29, 2014 - Report this comment
WOW, my son just found this site and I was astonished Dutch Mill wasn't only and still is a big part of my life but also all of you. Not only was it a GREAT/FUN place to work but I met my lovely wife there in '87 and now have a tremendous family due to that encounter at DM. I met my best friend Walt of some 31 years there whom over the years has surpassed me as a golfer.... but he is in FL. so he has an advantage there. My house is Dutch Mill Blue (280 C I believe on Dutch's PMS color chart....freak :),) and my old car was blue. Still have the old DM mugs in use and and other items as well. Haven't talked to Dutch in 15 years or so but regarding his demise not buying it yet... but there was that time back in '86 when Walt and I laid down 10 ft of skid marks from the forklift then next to the forks drew a white chalk outline of a body and stratigically placed a pair of glasses (Dutch wore glasses back then) a briefcase and loose papers all of which was roped off by yellow police tape. Maybe that was Dutch's demise???...... BUT he did walk into the warehouse several minutes later with a funny/inquisitive/puzzled look on his face trying to determine if in fact it was him who met his maker and he was simply a ghostly spirit. He pinched himself and walked away so I guess he convinced himself all was well. Like I said, a great place work with plenty of great people and plenty of great funny stories.....except for the "HAUNTED" one's.... they were just creepy along with the next tennent having a "Shooting Star's" dance company....again just creepy. MISS the factory,MISS the stories, MISS the DONUTS but mostly MISS the PEOPLE. Oh, "Dutch" forgot the Honey Almond, Strwberry, lemon and Orange donuts as well as the blueberry donut holes that smelled up the entire aisle in Shop Rite.
Old London's Cheese Waffle Snacks, Comment by Fla Bob on July 29, 2014 - Report this comment
Just finished my 2 oz bag of wffle snack and could not believe it was not the Old London product, so googled the manufacturer, Silk City Snacks and discovered this company in NJ purchased the New London product, including the machinery, from New London's Bronx location, and is now remaking our popular snack. Wish them well!

Buried Treasure, Comment by Chris Hillier on July 29, 2014 - Report this comment
I used to live in Sydney, NS and remember these. I thought they were "treasure sticks" but I see its buried treasure. I remember they were orange like freezies and vanilla ice-cream swirled in. I used to get these from Dowey's store on Cabot street just down from my house. Sure miss those days...going down to the Fun Villa...:(

Keebler Opera Cremes Cookies, Comment by DEborrah Williams on July 28, 2014 - Report this comment
This cookie should have never been stopped being made. I used to crave for this cookie when I was a teenager. Please make again. The store that sold them in our neighborhood is no longer there. This cookie was part of my childhood. I can still taste the taste in my mind. Please make it again.
Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Taylor by Jose on July 28, 2014 - Report this comment
Kinks and Horey for this wonderful new found page and who'd like a picture of my Uncle that worked in the New York Yankees club house in at about the years 1981, 1983 & 1983? My uncle was head of visitors uniforms and helped the Yanks with any minor task and was very trusted. He was sort of friends especially with Oscar Gamble. Oscar Gamble lived in Little Ferry, New Jersey and my uncle, who Oscar nicknamed Jose, lived a little about ten miles away in Jersey. My Uncle would often pick Oscar Gamble up and take him to Yankee Stadium which Oscar called The Big Ballpark in the Bronx. But get this, I looked up the Dutch Mill page because I have a picture of my uncle and Oscar with a Dutch Mill Donuts box. Do you guys want it for this page? Please tell me how to send it. Oscar, I mean, Mr. Gamble would always stop with my Uncle to get some treats before home gamers. Gum and Dutch Mill donuts were his favorit. The picture shows him with a box. The press loved Oscar, Mr. Gamble because he had the best personality despite being a small town boy from Montgomery, Alabama. Oscar was some kind of guy and not changed by the money like many of today's atheletes feets. Think with autograph show and appearences he'd make around half million a year. But he always had money for Dutch Mill Donuts.

OMG. If I was facing a firing squad and had one last request, it would be for a Cup O'Custard cookie. These were wonderful and eating them are among my favorite childhood memories. BRING 'EM BACK!!!

Koala Springs Cola, Comment by Biggs on July 26, 2014 - Report this comment
To the comments regarding western Canada, the product you are talking about is a rip off of the original. Notice it is Koala, not Koala springs, but they take a remarkably similar image of a koala. The original a Koala springs just went on sale again in The Pacific Northwest as an all natural drink.
Matilda Bay Wine Coolers, Comment by Paul & Beth P. on July 26, 2014 - Report this comment
Please Miller... Bring the Matilda Bay Coolers back! There are SO many of us late baby boomers that would drink ourselves silly on these for the rest of eternity! Our friends and us would throw parties and this would be the ONLY drink available! We covered an 8x10 foot wall of a room floor to ceiling, with the bottles, from 1 weekend! There is STILL no beverage that compares!

Franco American Macaroni and Cheese, Comment by Eric on July 24, 2014 - Report this comment
Bring back this Mac ASAP, the fact that this product was discontinued is a travesty. What's the hold up. I'll pay cash.
