Mrs. Grass's Soup , Comment by christine chmielewski on May 24, 2016 - Report this comment
bought today the double box of Mrs grass chicken noodle soup, and there was no little yellow egg in the boxes. Are you doing something different now?
Mister Misty, Comment by Barbara on May 24, 2016 - Report this comment
Mr. Mistys were for sale in the 1960's in Manchester, NH. My grandfather would hand me a quarter to get a Dilly Bar or a Buster Bar (round cup shaped with nuts and caramel and vanilla ice cream with a chocolate coating). Dilly Bars were 10 cents.
Alba 77, Comment by Rosa lopez on May 23, 2016 - Report this comment
I am looking for a old Weight Watchers recipe for corn muffins using 2 packs of vanilla Alba, crushed pineapple, corn meal, baking powder or baking soda( don't know which) butter substitute & 1 pack of sugar substitute. Everything went into a blender & poured in a muffin tin. Don't know any of the measurements. This was my breakfast. My leader was Debbie Hochrad in Queens NY in 1985.
Figurines, Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
My stepmother used to buy these, but she wouldn't let me have them because they were just for her. My late mom gave me these to eat with my school lunch, but they weren't all that great.
Cheese Whiz, Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
IMHO, Velveeta tastes much better. I mixed it in with salsa, and it tasted pretty awful. (By the way, it's Cheez Whiz, not Cheese Whiz).
Chef Boyardee Pizza Kit, Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
I am SO over Chef Boyardee Pizza Maker. The sauce doesn't keep very long. It grows mold and smells nasty over time. Plus, the crust is pretty awful.
York Peppermint Patties, Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
I'm not a peppermint fan per se.
Whoppers, Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
These kind of have a metallic flavor.
Whatchamacallit, Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
I thought these tasted kinda like Slender Bars.
Wax Lips, Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
WHY did they put these things on the market? I mean, come on! Who in their right mind would want to chew wax?
Velveeta , Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
Velveeta makes a good topping for steamed broccoli. IMO, Velveeta tastes better than Cheez Whiz. I always thought Cheez Whiz had a weird flavor.
Vienetta, Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
I LOVED Vienetta. The commercial said that "one slice is never enough" and I agreed, but I was only allowed one slice.
Priazzo, Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
I remember when they had these at Pizza Hut. The commercial said that "it's not a pizza." It's more of a pizza pie.
I'm partial to Pop-Secret myself. (BTW, the correct spelling is Redenbacher's, not Reddenbockers).
Microwave Popcorn, Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
I didn't care much for the Zesty Butter flavor. It always smelled rather garlicky, and it was rather spicy.
Microwave Popcorn, Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
My personal favorite is Pop-Secret. I don't care much for Act II.
Mc Chicken sandwich, Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
I've never tried a McChicken sandwich and I have no desire to do so. They're not as good as the Crispy Chicken sandwiches.
LUNCH BUCKET, Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
The thing I don't like about Lunch Bucket or anything of that nature is that when you heat them in the microwave, they tip and spill, and make a mess.
Hot Tamales , Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
I tried the Super Hot Hot Tamales, but they were way too hot for me.
Dynamints, Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
I remember the commercial from the 70s that featured couples kissing each other on the lips. Very maddening, IMO.
Chocolate Coins, Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
I remember getting these for Christmas when I was 5 or 6. I loved them as a kid and to this day I still love them. Sure brings back memories.
Nestle Qwik, Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
I don't care much for chocolate Nesquik, let alone strawberry Nesquik.
Giggles Cookies, Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
I liked the funny faces on the cookies, and I though they were pretty good. But IMHO, the TV commercials were silly and stupid.
Jujyfruits, Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
These are anything but awesome. They are delicious, but they stick to my teeth.
Pop Secret Popcorn, Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
I like Pop-Secret better than I do Act II Microwave Popcorn and better than I do Orville Redenbacher's. I don't like the kettle corn because it's so sugary.
Pop Secret Pop Chips, Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
I remember when Pop-Secret Pop Chips first came out (I think it was in 1994), I tried one chip as a free sample and it tasted exactly like Pop-Secret Popcorn.
Taco flavored doritos, Comment by Isac on May 22, 2016 - Report this comment
These were my absolute favorite, with Cool Ranch being my second favorite. I hate Nacho Cheese Doritos with a passion.

Carnation Breakfast Bars, Comment by Mia on May 21, 2016 - Report this comment
Miss them so much! I cannot find a replacement for them no matter how much I try. I, like everyone else here, hope for their comeback
Dannon Yogurt Bars, Comment by PatsMom on May 20, 2016 - Report this comment
I lost so much weight eating these in the 70's for lunch or instead of any kind of fast food treat. Raspberry and strawberry were awesome.
