Apple Slice, Comment by Brian on September 18, 2021 - Report this comment
When I was in high school o bought a 2 liter of Apple Slice and left it in my truck! Over a period of time it fermented and seemed to turn to pure alcohol. My mom came and brought me a sandwich. We started drinking the apple slice and we both got lit! The best part is, my mom was a preachers wife. I told all of my friends and we all bought all we could and left it in our trucks until it was ready Lol Best soda I have had
Chewy Chalk, Comment by @BigLakeBullies on September 17, 2021 - Report this comment
I've been hunting Chewy Chalk for years. Used to ride my bike down to the store in Methuen Mass in late 87-88 and load up on those lil buggers. Will we even like 'em anymore? 35 years later. I want some Chewy Chalk! 🥺

I loved the steak fajita and you're right they were so popular just like the real pressure cooked pinto beans. Let not forget that SAUCE of they would've kept that? It was delicious!💕💕💕

Try the new thrashed Apple from mountain dew. Kroger exclusive, I can't remember perfectly but it tastes very similar to Apple slice.
carnation breakfast squares, Comment by Monica on September 15, 2021 - Report this comment
Carnation Instant Breakfast squares were a staple for me for many years! I had major stomach issues and for whatever reason these squares tasted great and didn’t hurt my stomach! I loved them!! I loved the chocolate a vanilla flavors! I pray that one day they will make a comeback. I miss my safe and delicious breakfast!!!!
