Cup Custard Cookies, Comment by Karen on October 31, 2014 - Report this comment
I am so glad others remember these. I still peruse the cookie aisle just in case. They had a scalloped edge and the filling was custard color and flavored. There are other cookies that are somewhat lose, but even after all these years I can close my eyes and reminisce about them. Whoever made them, please bring them back!
Zero Candy Bars, Comment by Jon on October 30, 2014 - Report this comment
WHAT EVEN IS THIS WEBSITE WHY AM I SEARCHING FOR ZERO BARS Well, you're thinking the same things, so welcome aboard I love Zero bars because of the memories they bring back of my dad and I, and I like to grab one for a midnight snack at a gas station. Really unique candy bar and would definitely recommend.

Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Mr. & Mrs. Maple of the Heathers! on October 30, 2014 - Report this comment
I believe "Mapes" & I just received a Doctorate in "Donutology" as well as history from individuals infinitely smarter than us. Thank you doughman1917 for you kind thoughts regarding Mapes home town. And he said the memorial is for all of Canada's wars, but started for world war one. And thank you donutmanEM for a recipe we'll be bathing in tonight! Actually wish we could. Can't believe we're talking to the man that made the magic, donutmanEM! You guys totally rule and give grace to the old Dutch Mill and donut lovers everywhere. Have a very happy Halloween! Obviously we'd all love bags filled with Dutch Mill, but in our dreams. White Flag Dreams and as the late KC said: Keep you feet on the ground, but keep reaching for the stars ... "Shooting Stars" that is! LOL

Powerhouse Candy Bars, Comment by Barb on October 29, 2014 - Report this comment
I worked at an amusement park in the summer of 1967 and didn't appreciate the food in the employees' dining room. So I practically lived on Power House bars and Coca Cola. What a match! I really miss the Power House bar.
Hardee's Big Deluxe, Comment by Gerry on October 29, 2014 - Report this comment
The Big Deluxe was the best burger...EVER! The regular hamburger was outstanding also. I would just buy a sackfull and eat them until I couldn't take another bite. Why do the good things always go away?

I can't add much more to this except I feel the same way about wanting it back. There just isn't anything else in the stores that compare to Soup Starter.
Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Arthur17 on October 28, 2014 - Report this comment
Glad to see I'm not the only one looking into Dutch Mills of the 1980's. Crazy how passionate you followers get. But I guess this is something from our past that's worth remembering. Hey, and I'm on, too.

Mc DLT, Comment by Beckie on October 27, 2014 - Report this comment
With McDonalds 30% decline in sales this would be a great way to boost them up. Fresh produce and we put it together our selves. Even now when you get a burger made to order by the time you bring it home or sit down to eat it the produce side is warm, lettuce not crunchy at all. This is what is lacking in fast food, quality. Thay should bring it back, it would be a welcome relief to the current choices!
Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Doughboy1917 on October 27, 2014 - Report this comment
Sir Winston shall not be forgotten. And please Mr/Mrs Maples, listen to the wise Donut Man EM; A.K.A. "General EM." He's correct regarding the "Dragon's Teeth," which were indeed pyramidal fortifications made of constructed reinforced concrete. In other words, they tasted like TastyCake products then and now! See, I can learn to take a shot when we must! Did you know Donut Man EM that Switzerland still uses dragon's teeth to this day?! They nicknamed them "Toblerone Lines," after the chocolate bars. Naturally, the Swiss are ahead of us once again. And what good are any type of defense line when our enemies are welcomed with open arms within our precious boarders in this day and age. And sorry dear Mr/Mrs Maples regarding the cowardly attack on your National War Memorial in Canada. I've seen that memorial in Ottawa back in the 1990's. Do you know it was built for the Canadians that fought in WWI? Because of Canada's relationship with England, you honorable Maple Leafs mobilized some 620,000 fighting boys from 1914-18. 67,000 were killed and over 250,000 wounded. Our American Yanks, "Doughboys" sent some 1,000,000 from 1917-18. If not for both our sides, the Brits did not have a chance. The U.S.A. had over 200,000 of our boys wounded and close to 53,000 gave their lives to our cause. And God Bless Canada's Billy Bishop for his 72 victories. The great Baron had 80 and was a man of honor, as well. I shall mobilize my forces and attempt the above recipe General EM has so generously posted. We shall fight in the kitchens, we shall fight in the grocery store aisles, we shall defend our Dutch Mill traditions, whatever the coast may be.
