RC Cola, Comment by Bean on November 17, 2019 - Report this comment
I think I am the only person who thought this soda was foul. Our local pizza shop had RC in the fountain soda machine and I would get orange instead. GROSS!!!

Ive been looking for Soup Starter for years. Where did it go? My mother made it and now me and my sister would love to get our hands on some. It was the best.

I sure hope someone in the food industry is reading these comments. Our family LOVED soup starter! I used the flavor packet to make the BEST vegetable soup! NOTHING has been the same since this is off the market. Please BRING IT BACK !!!! Even if it's just the flavor packet.

I from Jacksonville FL and my mom used to buy koko blanco from Jax Liquors I was addicted to them. I drank one every day that was in the 70’s and 80’s I wish they would bring them back if only for a limited time they would sell out. I’m even searching amazon to see If I can fine them. Please please please bring them back.

Zingers, Comment by David C. on November 13, 2019 - Report this comment
I only had the chocolate Zingers and I loved them a lot. I never tried the other kinds, but it seems that Raspberry was rather popular with many people. If it was so good, then I'm sorry I missed out on that kind.

I never tried any other flavor other than the Cheddar Cheese Pretzel Combos. I loved these snacks a LOT when I was younger. I understand that there are flavors like Cheddar Cheese Cracker and, I think, Cheese Pizza or Pizza Cheese something. But, I only had the CCP Combos. I miss them so much.
O Boise's, Comment by David C. on November 13, 2019 - Report this comment
These, I don't actually remember, but they closely resemble snack chips that I was hooked on...Tato Skins.
Velveeta Shells & Cheese , Comment by David C. on November 13, 2019 - Report this comment
Boy, do I miss this kind of mac & cheese. While I occasionally still have mac & cheese, it's primarily the small Kraft boxes (the ones with the powder "cheese") I eat now. These are nowhere near as good as Velveeta was. I wish I had a time machine to transport me back to the good old days again.
Keebler Tater Skins, Comment by David C. on November 13, 2019 - Report this comment
Whoops...typo. I meant TATO SKINS, not Tater Skins.
Keebler Tater Skins, Comment by David C. on November 13, 2019 - Report this comment
I was practically addicted to these snacks when I was young. These were insanely good (not that other snack foods from the 1980s weren't good, of course). I miss Tater Skins.
McDonald's Chicken McNuggets, Comment by David C. on November 13, 2019 - Report this comment
I think one of my fondest memories of having chicken nuggets at McDonald's (along with a burger and fries, of course) was when they advertised a 50-piece. That's right...50 pieces of chicken nuggets! Of course, I could never eat that many in one sitting, but I did order a 20 pieces. My favorite dipping sauce was always sweet & sour, but I also enjoyed BBQ, honey mustard, and another kind that I don't remember. It wasn't ranch or anything like that. I'll try and Google the different dipping sauces that McDonald's used to have and see if the one I'm thinking of (but can't remember the name of) pops up.
Candy Cigarettes, Comment by David C. on November 13, 2019 - Report this comment
I occasionally had these "cigarettes" when I was young. I used to pretend to "smoke" them. Luckily, I never developed the habit of smoking real cigarettes.
Skittles, Comment by David C. on November 13, 2019 - Report this comment
I remember lime Skittles. I don't hate green apple Skittles, but I miss the lime ones as they were much more iconic than their modern counterparts. I wish the Skittles company would bring back the original lime Skittles again.
Kraft Toffee's, Comment by Aviva on November 12, 2019 - Report this comment
I tried to describe these to a couple of co workers but yup they are all way to young to remember I used to eat them (except the coffee ) and I miss them tons too its crazy what we remember:)
