Otter Pops, Comment by Edward on May 02, 2016 - Report this comment
I miss the old recipe too!! The way it melted, it went from ice to slush to liquid. The ones today are just like ice cubes with no slushy goodness. Sigh... HFCSugar ruins everything

Malt Duck-Malt Liquor, Comment by Brent on May 01, 2016 - Report this comment
Wow! I just happened to look up Apple Malt Duck and found this page. I'm from NY. Went to college upstate in 1980. Me and my frat brothers loved it. I didn't know it was out of business. If anyone can find something that tastes similar to it, please bring some to an Average White Band concert and ask for the lead vocalist. I promise free tickets and a drunk singer!

I lost my anal virginity to a box of chocolate snaps back in the summer of '81. I still have a few crumbs wedged up there. What great memories, really takes me back.
Jolly Ranchers, Comment by erlenefromfrank&franks on May 01, 2016 - Report this comment
My father owned several grcery stores. Jolly Rancher made pink grapefruit stix, which were my favorite there were atleast a dozen flavors. Maybe they need to bring them back for a limited time and cll them "Retro Ranchers." I'm just saying!

For those who still insist these candies were not made by the M&M company. There is a picture of the packaging at the bottom of the following website. https://deepfriedhoodsiecups.wordpress.com/2011/12/28/dfhc-12282011/
Franco American Macaroni and Cheese, Comment by Brenda on April 30, 2016 - Report this comment
My brother and I used to eat this while my sister used to eat Spaghetti in a can. They still have the Spaghetti but not the Macaroni and Cheese. They make way too much junk now. I wish companies would learn that if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
Fun Fruits, Comment by Fun fruit fan! on April 29, 2016 - Report this comment
I've been searching and searching for my childhood favorite food... Soo sad they don't make them anymore :( :( BRING THEM BACK!! Gushers are the closes things I've found but nothing like the original fun fruit. Forget all those fruit funnies out there now - way too bland!
Matilda Bay Wine Coolers, Comment by Dave Belancsik on April 29, 2016 - Report this comment
I hate wine coolers. But loved Matilda Bay coolers. We drank them religiously for the short time they were available. I would love for someone, if not Miller, to bring them back. Even just seasonally in the spring,summer, autumn and ...
Carnation Breakfast Bars, Comment by Paolo on April 29, 2016 - Report this comment
The best times in my life were shared with these bars. If Carnation would bring them back...I would buy 2 boxes a week for the next 30 years...

You can buy it on line at wal mart and Amazon I just got a case it's good when your sick
Cheesy criss cross, Comment by Chris on April 28, 2016 - Report this comment
I can still taste these, even now. Remember buying my first one, getting home and eating it and then going straight back to the newsagent and buying my second, third and fourth. I ate as many of them as I could get my hands on - which coincided with my only period of childhood obesity as far as I can remember - but now as an adult of iron will I think I could just about trust myself if they were brought back so please, please can it happen? I've always vowed that if I win the Euromillions I'll buy the recipe, a factory and get them back out there.
