I seem to remember that I loved the grape-flavored Bubble Yum most of all. It had a juicy quality when you chewed it--really good flavor. Thanks for the great memories!

Sour cream and onion Doritos, Comment by David in San Antonio Tx on June 24, 2016 - Report this comment
Way back in 1977, I used to save my bus money and walk home from Page Middle School just so I could have enough money to buy a bag of Sour Cream & Onion Doritos. I ate the whole bag by myself as I walked home and I didn't have to share because I was the only one in my family that liked them...which is an understatement because I could replace an entire meal if I had a bag of these amazingly delicious corn chips. They were real and they were the best flavor that Doritos ever made. They brought them back for awhile about a year or two ago but, we're back to having only the memory of our beloved Sour Cream & Onion Doritos.
Tostitos, Comment by Jodi on June 23, 2016 - Report this comment
Oh heck YES!! These rocked compared to Doritos and for some odd reason, you didn't haven't the same mess as Doritos left all over your fingers while eating them! This all came rushing back, I lost a dear friend way to young at only 45 years old, and one of the first things that came to mind was her love for Nacho Cheese Tostitos and Orange Crush that she would love about coming to my house. she had sort of rough time growing up, and didn't have things like this often at all, and I'll respect her and her Mom, and just leave at that. But I remember all of great memories we had making cookies and watching HBO when cable first was new, and HBO only had REAL movies like those that were in the Theaters only, and weren't the old ones either! We were dear friends from the time she moved into the neighborhood during Jr. High all through High School. I sort of get it, but not really... I was sort of her only best friend. She was very beautiful and tall, actually Modeled after her Dad paid for her Modeling school. She mostly did Teen types of magazines and catalogs for sears and JC Penny and a brand name Jean Co. (Gloria Vanderbilt) at a one time thing in High School, that money mostly went to add to her portfolio and to help her Mom with bills and her clothes ect... We lost touch when I was about 30, when I called one day and the phone was disconnected with no information at all. I am trying my best to think of all of the great memories we had. But am so, so sad!! I cried myself to sleep last night, she is just as beautiful as she always was. She had major lung issues due to her very heavy smoking since the age of only 13, when her Mom would even give her 2 packs per day! Those "More" Menthol's that were long and skinny in the brown paper all over. In the dark green pack. But there was no smoking at my house where she loved to spend a lot of time. My family sort of took her in and fed her, showed we all cared ect. I had talked to my Mon in confidence about the situation. She had a lot of empathy and even had a friend of mine move in when she turned 18 on her Birthday, due to her being abused sexually in her own home. The sad part is my dear old friend that had passed, did not have anything to do with ANYONE in High School at all! They didn't take the time to understand her like I had done, and YES! She was sure an original, very witty and a free spirit in more ways than just a few. But was a friend that cared and loved deeply for her true friends and family, probably more than herself sadly. But a friend that would stick by you no matter the circumstances, and both learn and share with so many things... She even showed me what type of make up to use as well as the right way to apply it correctly, while we were always munching on a bag of Tostitos and at that time (as it's still so vivid)I only had my 8 pack of the returnable bottles of Pepsi by then, that I became addicted to as well. They even had it at school! Heck, we even had a smoking area, could leave the campus by car during open hours and lunch to go to a fast food place or a park when it was nice out. I still can't believe we had that much freedom then. Then during my Sr. Year in the beginning, in October, I turned 18 and was on the emancipated list. I was JUST Grand Fathered into the 18 year old drinking age by only 13 days! And there were very few of us that had been, and that's when I met my Son's Father... But I didn't get pregnant until I was 20 years old. When I lost my virginity which I held onto like I had promised my Dad, until I knew it was the right time. But every single time through the 80's until they stopped making them :P . Which I do not understand why that was? Because even at school those were first to go in the vending machine before anything else! They should at least do a come back trial for them... That way, I could leave some flowers in a Tostitos bag when I go visit her. RIP my dear friend... So glad you found that happiness you deserved so much before we lost you to such a tragic mistake. I hope you heard my prayer or Jesus told you what I thought you needed to know. Love you always!

I am looking for these classic candies that melts in your mouth like cotton candy...when I was a child my grandmother and great aunts use to give these candies to my sisters and me.I can't find them anywhere..a name brand called brocks sold them...it were sold in tin cans and bags.there were various flavors such as, cherry,lemon.spearmint,peppermint,butterscotch,and orange...this was in the late 60's when i ate them..there are similar candies that don't come close enough to call soft candy..please help me to locate these old fashion candy so that I may order some by the case.
