Corn Quistos , Comment by Satic Acar on February 14, 2016 - Report this comment
My favorite was the picante flavored. Combos don't come close.
Mrs. Grass's Soup , Comment by Neil on February 13, 2016 - Report this comment
Sadly, it no longer has the Golden Nugget. the box size has been reduced from 5 oz. to 4.2 oz. When I tried to leave product feedback at Wyler's website (which still shows the old box with the Golden Egg), I got a mailbox full message from H.J. Heinz. I usually buy it at WalMart.

Corn Pringles, Comment by bobo on February 13, 2016 - Report this comment
Is it just me or do the "original" pringles taste like crap these days??/ I haven't bought them in many years but they were a staple back in the 80's... now they are horrible things which leave a nasty film in the mouth... not at all like I remember... perhaps it is the trans fats that used to be allowed to be used... not sure.. the new ones actually irritate my mouth and seem more chemical based... I can say I loved them in the past but after trying them recently, I won't be buying them again... they are worse than even bargain brand chips in the supermarket... yuck... kind of like music.. the stuff these days pales in comparison to the stuff of the past... now it is about money and marketing.. not content
carnation breakfast squares, Comment by Leslie on February 12, 2016 - Report this comment
I have tried hundreds of protein type bars and I always hope they would taste like the Carbation Breakfast squares I had as a kid. I dream about these and I see a lot of other people feel the same 30+ years later! Hello carnation?!?!? Perhaps you can bring these back adding whey protein which would have the same taste.

I'm not crazy - thank you so much. I loved and miss them too.
M & M Royals, Comment by DTroppens on February 12, 2016 - Report this comment
Royals were the greatest. Like others said, I used to buy them for a period of time. And then one day they just disappeared. I can still hear the jingle. "Guess what happened to chocolate. Chocolate got a whisper of mint."

Cheesy criss cross, Comment by Elaine on February 12, 2016 - Report this comment
I loved cheesy criss cross and ate loads. I really wish they would bring them back as they were the best snack ever.
Mrs. Grass's Soup , Comment by Jerry on February 12, 2016 - Report this comment
yep, just picked up a box at our local grocery store since the family all have colds, and the golden nugget is gone. I was really disappointed! That's what made Mrs. Grass's stand out.

Used Alba everyday for six months to make this delicious bowl of pudding topped with one fourth cup of cool whip and lost a lot of weight.You can still find it at kROGER grocery stores in Houston,Tx.I used the vanilla to make all flavors of pudding.It was a great aid in my weight loss.

Whitney's Yogurt, Comment by Mike on February 10, 2016 - Report this comment
Whitney's was made with whole milk and cream. Apparently they stopped production when companies started pushing low fat yogurts made with skim milk and peoples trend toward healthier eating took over, which resulted in lower sales. I recently discovered Noosa Yoghurt which is made with whole milk and cane sugar. So while it's higher in fat and calories, it tastes much better. It is very similar to the old Whitney's. Google Noosa Yoghurt to find out where you can buy it.
Air Bons, Comment by David T on February 10, 2016 - Report this comment
My brother is looking for those as well as a host of other snacks. Why does it seem like they always discontinue the "good stuff"? I do remember them and am not sure if the new ones at Russell stover are the genuine item. As has been remarked they came in several different flavors. I'm having a hard time getting thru by phone-close to valentine's day, I guess :)
Chewy Chalk, Comment by Edward on February 09, 2016 - Report this comment
if you mix cherry twizzler bites and cherry sours, you almost get the same texture and flavor as chewy chalk!
