Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by K-Town on December 08, 2016 - Report this comment
Bring back lots of eighties stuff starting w dutch mill and whacky packs. Remember them boys? Girls, too. My cousin's friend wanted Bank Aid from me. That was one of the hardest to get.
Nabisco Marshmallow Sandwich, Comment by Sherry on December 08, 2016 - Report this comment
I loved them in NY where I was born and then in CA where I moved at 4. I remember they were harder to find here than in NY but could be found at some stores in LA. I loved these marshmallow sandwich cookies so much! I was not a kid who liked sweets in general but these were the exception, I could eat a whole box at a time. After they were discontinued you could occasionally find them on a shelf at a second tier grocery store but that stopped too. I wish Nabisco would at least do a focus group on them to gage the interest in bringing them back because I'd buy a gross just to keep on hand for my grandchildren.

Christie Mini Chips, Comment by Ilona Guerra on December 07, 2016 - Report this comment
Omg reading all these comments, I found my people lol I love mini chips, everyone who knows me all my life knows my obsession, i too have tried everything similar but I'm not happy ! I too bought them abundance when I found in the Maritimes and Quebec, i too bugged Mr. Christie to bring back to no avail, when they were considered only a regional produce, hence finding in the east , i tried to get a friend who owned a store to get me a carton lol. Oh Mr,. Christie, hear our prayers, demands, cries, just please listen to the folks....

Please make the marshmallow sandwich cookie again or at least give the recipe away.
Magic Pan crepes, Comment by Chester on December 07, 2016 - Report this comment
I worked at the Magic Pan in Washington, DC from 1976 to 1979. It is one of the best places I have ever worked. Everyone treated each other like family. We partied together, relationships were formed, some that turned into marriage. We were one big fraternity/sorority. Days gone but never forgotten.
Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by GM BoBoyz on December 07, 2016 - Report this comment
Holy Crap-on-a-Stick, Batman!! This is incredible. First, and foremost, Sorry, Sweet Gloria, The Honorable Doughboy1917 is not in the best of health. Please give him our most profound greetings and honors. And, is this, Dutch, correspondence for real?! I thought he passed on to that great donut shop in the sky. And, where are the Mapos?! So much so soon. Now with Dutch (If it's for real) and DonutHead EM this following has no limits. I, the Great GM BoBoy will begin a Christmas Mailing and not stop till mid-2017. God Bless you all; especially Doughboy1917 and Sir Dutch of Donutville, if this is for real.
Tostitos, Comment by Heather on December 06, 2016 - Report this comment
So happy to find this thread! The nacho cheese flavored Tostitos were the only chips my mom would buy (early 80's). I still remember their fabulousness. So tasty! Please bring them back, original recipe!!
Yoplait Dessert Yogurt, Comment by Robin Huff on December 06, 2016 - Report this comment
I loved the Breakfast yogurt as well, and was aghast when they discontinued it. I've tried to recreate it for years, but never knew the grain was "wheat berries". So glad I found this stream!!! Already on the shopping list, as well as barley someone else suggested. I often put fresh fruit or white raisins or dried cranberries/cran-raisins, & slivered almonds or pecans in my yogurt. Giving something good to chew makes it much more satisfying & enough to pass for a meal. the pre-made was just so convenient, plus there were several great flavors. I bet sales would be much higher now than they were in the 80's if Yoplait would do a trial. It really was delicious!!

Anyone tried Cracker Barrel Country Store, they sell old fashion stuff.
Rondo Citrus Soda, Comment by Tony on December 05, 2016 - Report this comment
Wasn't one of the last commercials for Rondo(after the Sippin' a Rondo commercials) a father trying to make sense of his son's slang speech? He was alone on a plain set talking to the camera and at one point describes how his son says that Rondo "is pretty bad, but I'd say it was pretty good." He stresses the words pretty bad and pretty good like he is Bill Murray saying them. He also gives several other examples of how his son's slang has the opposite meaning from his own literal interpretations. Of course, I'm going off of a third-of-a-century old memory, but I think I've got it right. Anyone else remember this? We can only hope someone will find more commercials on ancient VHS tapes. Sippin' a Rondo is like watchin the clouds go by...
