Kind of like chex mix, but in a blue box. They weren't as salty and they didn't have any rye chips in them.

DooDads were a favorite of my family growing up. We played monopoly and ate DooDads that were heated up in the oven every Saturday night. Now that I have a family of my own I wish to start this tradition but NO DOODADS!!! WHY?!

yeah, we liked doodads much better. well, except for the cheesy things...
Christopher - April 24, 2009 - Report this comment
the cheese tidbits were the best part of Doo-dads... except the cheese tidbits ued in doo-dads were a slight bit smaller than the regular ones... you can pretty close to re-make doo-dads by making chex party mix.. add about 20% more of the liquids (butter and worc. sauce) and then add a little extra onion powder and a bit of garlic powder.. and add about 20% less salt...use no corn chex and much less rice chex and double the wheat chex.. use cheez-its.. and for a neat flavor add bugles.. slightly under-bake the chex mix and then take the pan right out of the oven and straight into the freezer.. let it freeze then bag it and store it at room temp - you will have doo-dads..

I remember the boxes of doodads. They were bettern than chex mix or the ritz bits mix. I loved the Cheese tidbits, peanuts, & cereal squares-I picked out the pretzels & gave them to my little sister.

Wasn't there an SNL skit that had boxes of Doo Dads on the shelves upside down? Since the letters were all lower case, it was "spap oop"

Oh My Word....Talk about a great snack with a cold, glass bottled pop. That was the bomb.

I never thought doodads would go away. They were my favorite snack of all time. (And it was Rich Hall on Not Necessarily the News who had the upside down box. In fact, the whole store was upside down.) Bring back doodads, Nabisco!

Man I miss Doo Dads...such a better flavor than the bland Chex mix BS they sell now.
Zane - May 06, 2010 - Report this comment
Our grocery one time stocked the boxes upside down on the shelf, and because of the funky lower case font, my mom thought the box read: spep oop

OMG!!!!! I remember Doo Dads growing up and I miss them! Chex Mix is NOT the same. I can not understand why companies discontinue all the good sh*t! There is such garbage out there on the shelves! AND when you go to Nabisco's site, there is no "contact us" link. All I want to do is tell them they should bring them back for a one more go around to see if they can make a hit. Bast*rds

Anyone out there no where i can get some Doo Dads, i am missing them
Debra - March 16, 2011 - Report this comment
I called nabisco, they discontinued them because noone was buying them. I told them they were charging 2.99 a box when everything else at the time was 1.99. That is why they weren't as popular. I ate them all the time.

This was my favorite snack EVER! I had forgotten about them til 2005 when I was pregnant and had the biggest craving for them. Chex Mix is ok but can never live up to Doo Dads. If anyone from Nabisco reads this: PLEASE bring Doo Dads back!!!!

Doodads were sold in store? I didn't know that (throw in the fact that I just turned 15 on December 6). My mom makes Doodads sometimes. I love them

My mom, dad, grandma and myself would all love it if Doo Dads were brought back. If anyone ever starts a petition, I'm in.

I used to eat these all the tme. It was my go to snack when watching the incredible hulk and dukes of hazard. PLEASE bring thee back exactly as they were. Chex mix doesn't even come close.

I always bought my own boxes & put them away. Couldn't get enough. Especially when pregnant. They would sell really good. Bring them back!

I WANT DOO DAD"S!!!!! I have tried Cheez-It snack mix and other snack mixes trying to fill the flavor of the Doo Dad's and nothing touches them. :( Please bring them back.I have had my craving for them for years and it stinks cause I can't buy some.

When I could no longer find them in my local Midwest grocery store I asked my sister to look for them in Florida. She hunted them down and bought every box she could find for me. I can still taste them in my mind. Umami at its bet!
