bubble gum flavored now and laters, Comment by Rashell Gunter on October 25, 2014 - Report this comment
Bubblegum flavored Now&Laters were my absolute favorite. I must have eaten about 1,000 packs or more as a kid. Oh how I miss them.
Rock'N'Roll Cookies, Comment by Lonnie on October 24, 2014 - Report this comment
I remember back in the 50's and 60's in texas they were called bear tracks. Made by Malrays in Monroe La. Later came stage planks. A very sad replacement, Malrays went out of business. Sure wish for the original.

For some reason I had a craving for this product just the other day and was really checking to see if I could find it anywhere. LOL Oh well. Loved all the comments:))
Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Donut Man EM on October 24, 2014 - Report this comment
White Flag over my door Mr & Mrs Maples....To Quote WC " We will never surrender.....whatever the cost may be" And I fear the cost grows year by year. For future reference and possible future dining room small talk "Dragon's Teeth" were 3 ft high concrete pyramid looking structures that were lined up several feet apart and many rows deep over many, many miles to thwart allied tank advantages. If only that diligent preparation and foresight were used today.... Anyway try 1. 10.5 lbs BREAD FLOUR 2. 17.50 lbs CAKE FLOUR 3. 20.50 lbs BUTTER (Blend then add) 4. 29.15 lbs GRAN. SUGAR 5. 0.65 lbs BAKING POWDER 6. 0.10 lbs SALT 7. 10.30 lbs MILK 8. 0.90 lbs VANILLA 7. 0.05 lbs ORANGE EXTRACT 9. 0.05 lbs ALMOND EXTRACT (Blend again then add) 10. 17.90 lbs WHOLE EGGS and finally 4.75 lbs MILK. You could probably scale down accordingly but ENJOY TASTING THE PAST!!!!

Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Mr. & Mrs. Maples of the Heather: God Bless Ottawa! on October 23, 2014 - Report this comment
Please all say a prayer for our brave city of Ottawa and this sad time. Found out only minutes after yesterday's post and have been in tears ever since. And to be political, wake up Canada and U.S.A. and protect our borders!

Swiss cheese flavored crackers, Comment by Sandy and Cindy on October 22, 2014 - Report this comment
I have looked for the Swiss Cheese crackers for years and while I have accepted that they are no longer made, I will still look in hopes! My sister and I loved these and would giggle and laugh because we called them "fart crackers". I remember my grandma calling us silly girls because we giggled so much about them but they were delicious!
Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Mr. & Mrs. Maples of the Heathers! on October 22, 2014 - Report this comment
Great thoughts guys, but a little over my head with the wars, dragon teeth and gassed with mustard and gravy. What Dragon teeth, that like Harry Potter or something. But I'd love to cook up about 250 pounds of pound cakes! Little sad many old friends and even foes have not come back. And Doughboy1917, please understand we can even have the "funny people" back, too. I know folks like you and Donut Man EM obviously have class and intellect, but even the weird one's can help our overall cause. I mean, "come on man," even you can admit the "donuts" out there now a not second, but third rate. How do you feel when you see a box of Tasty Cakes instead of Dutch Mills? It's OK to be angry.
Magic Middles, Comment by Xione on October 21, 2014 - Report this comment
I loved these cookies. I bought them 3 and 4 packages at a time. I still reminiss* to co-workers and friends about them. They also brought out mini-middles too. The Pepperidge Farms Milano Melts cookies are pretty good. Not quite the same as the Magic Middles, but close enough. I hope they bring these back in my life time. I would like to taste them just once more before i die lol.
microwave cakes, Comment by Ana on October 21, 2014 - Report this comment
I had them much earlier than 1986!!! We had them back in 1980-1983. My sister used to make them for us in our playroom and it was always the carrot cake with white icing of some sort. We were on an Air Force base in Germany but we'd buy them in American stores. I've been looking for these. Nobody knows the name?
Twix with Peanut Butter, Comment by cynthia on October 21, 2014 - Report this comment
The new PB Twix sucks. The Pb is different and the chocolate cookie part is just not good to me. Please bring back the original peanut butter Twix.
Magic Pan crepes, Comment by Carol on October 21, 2014 - Report this comment
Magic Pan in Paramus NJ. It was our date night place. Friday night, I'd meet my hubby at the bus stop as he arrived from NYC. The kids with their grandma, and the night was ours. Loved their food and our special time. It's been 45 years of wedded bliss and I can still taste those magic cheese balls. Sure wish they'd come back!
