I loved these. I can still remember how they taste. Oh the yummy foods of my childhood.
Swiss cheese flavored crackers, Comment by Sandy and Cindy on October 22, 2014 - Report this comment
I have looked for the Swiss Cheese crackers for years and while I have accepted that they are no longer made, I will still look in hopes! My sister and I loved these and would giggle and laugh because we called them "fart crackers". I remember my grandma calling us silly girls because we giggled so much about them but they were delicious!
Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Mr. & Mrs. Maples of the Heathers! on October 22, 2014 - Report this comment
Great thoughts guys, but a little over my head with the wars, dragon teeth and gassed with mustard and gravy. What Dragon teeth, that like Harry Potter or something. But I'd love to cook up about 250 pounds of pound cakes! Little sad many old friends and even foes have not come back. And Doughboy1917, please understand we can even have the "funny people" back, too. I know folks like you and Donut Man EM obviously have class and intellect, but even the weird one's can help our overall cause. I mean, "come on man," even you can admit the "donuts" out there now a not second, but third rate. How do you feel when you see a box of Tasty Cakes instead of Dutch Mills? It's OK to be angry.
Magic Middles, Comment by Xione on October 21, 2014 - Report this comment
I loved these cookies. I bought them 3 and 4 packages at a time. I still reminiss* to co-workers and friends about them. They also brought out mini-middles too. The Pepperidge Farms Milano Melts cookies are pretty good. Not quite the same as the Magic Middles, but close enough. I hope they bring these back in my life time. I would like to taste them just once more before i die lol.
microwave cakes, Comment by Ana on October 21, 2014 - Report this comment
I had them much earlier than 1986!!! We had them back in 1980-1983. My sister used to make them for us in our playroom and it was always the carrot cake with white icing of some sort. We were on an Air Force base in Germany but we'd buy them in American stores. I've been looking for these. Nobody knows the name?
Twix with Peanut Butter, Comment by cynthia on October 21, 2014 - Report this comment
The new PB Twix sucks. The Pb is different and the chocolate cookie part is just not good to me. Please bring back the original peanut butter Twix.
Magic Pan crepes, Comment by Carol on October 21, 2014 - Report this comment
Magic Pan in Paramus NJ. It was our date night place. Friday night, I'd meet my hubby at the bus stop as he arrived from NYC. The kids with their grandma, and the night was ours. Loved their food and our special time. It's been 45 years of wedded bliss and I can still taste those magic cheese balls. Sure wish they'd come back!

These were undoubtedly the best chips ever! I talk about them all the time. I do wish they would make a comeback.
Le Menu Microwave TV Dinners, Comment by Beverly on October 20, 2014 - Report this comment
I used to save these plates and my husband threw most of them away. I've used the one remaining until it is cracked. Wish I could find a few myself. I heat a lot of things in the microwave using the plate. We too loved the meals!!!!

Banquet Boiling Bags, Comment by Lisa Vee on October 18, 2014 - Report this comment
I long for the Chicken a la king! I remember the little package it came in was shaped like an envelope. We would put the frozen bag on a plate, poke it with a knife and microwave it. So convenient and delicious.
Air Bons, Comment by Casnbella on October 18, 2014 - Report this comment
WOW! I thought I was crazy and am so glad I found people looking for this peppermint ball as well. I was only 4 yrs old in 1991 and my mother's friend had the peppermint ones. They were in a jar or tin and they were shiny ping pong ball like. Very thin and light outer shell that crunched and then melted in your mouth instantly. I have been looking ever since then and am so glad to know I am not alone. I vow to make them for everyone to enjoy in every flavor if I ever make millions of dollars! I wish in the meantime someone else would make them for us. By the way, like everyone said it is not the puffed powdery ones like Bob's and king Leo and Russell Stover puff balls. The ones we are asking about are perfect round balls. I love you all and thank you so much for all your help and stories/memories of these balls of heaven.

Creamy Burger, Comment by Karen B. on October 18, 2014 - Report this comment
For years I have been trying to find this delicious ice cream burger I enjoyed as a kid. I began to think I had dreamed it all up because no one around me knew what I was talking about! I can't believe there are others just like me! I remember the box and even though you all have described it perfectly I still want to see one and eat it!!! I'm emailing any and all ice cream companies to bring back the Creamy Burger!! Thank guys, we all can't be crazy! :)
