Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by HG0645 on January 26, 2015 - Report this comment
Dear Maples People, No idea what you're talking about. I got an e-mail from Donald, a friend from a collecting club. But you guys seem cool and know you're donuts. In fact, it seems this page has quite a lot of real Dutch Mill PRODUCTS fans. ha ha Maples. Had my fist Dutch Mill around 1984 or 1985. Kept eating them till the bitter end. Bring them back!!

In Europe in the 80ies it wasn't a TWIX it was a Raider's. They changed the name in the 90ies.
Air Bons, Comment by Lee on January 26, 2015 - Report this comment
Got really excited thinking I had found the originals. Bought 5 bags from Whittman the week before Christmas. Big disappointment - not the originals. Definitely not making the originals any longer.
Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Angelina on January 25, 2015 - Report this comment
I think about these doughnuts all the time. There was/is nothing like them. Just delicious. I had my first Dutch Mill doughnut in Paterson, NJ, '88 or '89. Bring back Dutch Mill doughnuts!
Burger King Whaler Sandwich, Comment by Mik Wyatt on January 25, 2015 - Report this comment
The Big Fish is nothing compared to the original Whaler! Is there any way to get Burger King to consider bringing it back? It was the standard for ALL fast food chain's fish sandwiches! I would pay extra if that was the deciding factor in bringing it back!
Franco American Macaroni and Cheese, Comment by JohnnyB on January 25, 2015 - Report this comment
I loved this product! When I was in Germany as a GI, we used to bring a case of this when we were in the field- you could eat hot, warm, or cold! Later I turned my bride on to this and it became our favorite dish. It was always tough to find since it was sold out moe often than not. Why did the bail out with a best selling item?

Here it is January 2015 and people still interested in the LeMenu meals and plates. I too would love to see the meals back in the stores. Also would like to find the plates. I have 2 of them and one is cracked. I will keep searching for them, like a lot of others.

Tuna Twist, Comment by jamiesarah on January 23, 2015 - Report this comment
I WANT TUNA TWIST BACK!!! I was a little kid and I remember this stuff. My mother tries to make it (celery, carrots, onions and parsley), but even she says its not the same. Heres ny thing, if there was something in it that caused problems, why not remove that ingredient?? Im calling Nabisco.

Good Humor Fat Frog, Comment by Alex S. on January 22, 2015 - Report this comment
Amazingly, the local ice cream truck by my neighborhood in NJ had these for a couple of months back in 2013. Then they came around again and told me they were discontinued suddenly. I actually still have the wrapper. I loved these as a kid and couldn't find them. So to find them again after all this time only to watch them vanish once more just hurts. Fat Frog is love, people. And I love Fat Frogs.
