general mills breakfast squares, Comment by Tony on February 16, 2019 - Report this comment
Leslie! I could just cut and paste your comment and put my name next to it. My favorite was the cinnamon bars. I’ll probably comment again in 2022.
Tiger Red Soda, Comment by Marty on February 15, 2019 - Report this comment
I lived in rural America near Vincennes, IN, on the Illinois side of the Wabash River, Used to buy Tiger Red and Chocola for one thin dime. A filling station had every soda known to mankind. They were in a cold water cooler. I live in upstate NY and there is nothing even close to TR. Once in a while I buy Big Red when I'm back to visit, but it isn't close to what a Tiger Red was. I throw in a packet of Sweet n Low to take it to a better level, but it's still not close. Criminal act getting rid of Tiger Red.
Rondo Citrus Soda, Comment by BuzzBusby on February 14, 2019 - Report this comment
It's probably unlikely that historians of the future will ever recognize the importance of Rondo to our generation. It was literally a defining component of our summers as kids growing up (especially in Minneapolis and Arizona as evidenced by this message board). Those were the days when you could work up a powerful thirst through engaging in such activities as kung-fu battles and then fully crush that thirst with the clean citrus taste of a Rondo which was never sticky. Whoever was the genius who decided on the precise percentage of carbonation it contained should have received a Nobel Prize, because you could truly slam it down exceptionally fast. And indeed, back in the day, we rapidly slammed down quite a few. There's almost no way to describe to someone outside of this group of 'Rondo-heads' the palpable ecstasy of seeing one of those cold bright yellow cans at the end of a hard, sweaty afternoon of BMX biking in heat of a Minneapolis summer in 1970s. Am I right? I now wear a large brass belt buckle (vintage Rondo swag purchased on eBay) that commands anyone who looks down there to "SLAM IT DOWN FAST". It was pointed out to me that this could be misconstrued as an innuendo. Although that was not my original intention, it has be recognized as such more than once, and that is all I will say about that! Peace and love, follow Rondo-heads. Here's to us!

Choco Bliss, Comment by Rob on February 14, 2019 - Report this comment
Nice to see other folks who have enjoyed this as much as I did. I tel my wife about these and she always says, "if they were really that good, they would be around like Zingers." Alas, she knows not of the delicate blends of chocolate that a Choco-Bliss had.

Nacho cheese Tostitos where round light and Crispy! Nacho cheese Tostitos were me and my friends favorite. We all knew they were better than the others. Just like old T-Rex they are gone forever. Thank you for all the good times Nacho cheese Tostitos!
Christie Mini Chips, Comment by Robin on February 13, 2019 - Report this comment
I love love love mini chips and am also sad they discontinued them. My husband brought home some Lays Poppables with sea salt and as Amanda said, they taste very similar to mini chips. The texture is different but the taste is the closest so far. I do hope they bring back the mini chips though as nothing beats them.
