RED L cheese puffs, Comment by Greg in NJ on October 22, 2016 - Report this comment
They were my comfort food after a long night and they were my Sunday date snack. Movie, wine and Red-L. Brings back movies, girls and good times. Maybe we can't go back, but should still be able to enjoy the Red-L Puffs. Bring'em back!
peanut butter bopper, Comment by JENNIFER on October 22, 2016 - Report this comment
I WANT TO TAKE THIS TIME OUT TO EXPRESS MY HAPPINESS AND APPRECIATION TO DOCTOR NOBLE THE ITALIAN SPELL CASTER( WHO HELPED ME IN GETTING MY EX BACK . Am so glad to share to the world what doctor Noble did for me, he brought back my lover, my joy, my life and my everything,after my boyfriend broke up with me because of another girl who they worked together in same company , i was so devastated, for six months I was so frustrated and restless because I couldn't imagine myself without him, I so much loved him, I tried everything to get him back but no success. I was scared to contact a spell caster because of fear of being scammed..but a friend of mine told me he knew a powerful love spell caster in ITALY, so I decided to give him a try and to my greatest surprise in less than 2 weeks my ex came back begging and I was so happy and I accepted him and we are together now and even stronger. All thanks to doctor Noble. You can contact him via Thanks for your time.

Sundance, Comment by nicole on October 19, 2016 - Report this comment
I loved Sundance! I was in high school during that time. Recently I bought season 3 of 90210 for $4 at salvation army. And Kelly is clutching one in the doorway of her beach club cabanna! I had to Google because I couldn't remember the name. The closest thing I have found is "Onli!" I get it at my Publix, here in Lakeland FL. They have bunches of flavors, ranging in calorie content. The 120/serving will be the ones closest to our beloved Sundance! But I like plenty of them! I usually have a 15 calorie "honeysuckle/pear/apple one in the fridge. Light, crisp and dry! A higher calorie fave is pomegranate huckleberry! Now that's yummy like the olden days! LOOK FOR IT!

OMG!! I am SO glad to see you all here looking for this candy! My birthday is Halloween and every year without fail I got loads of Slim Jims candy - and yes Rob, there was a tall slim guy on the wrapper. I so miss that candy. Why doesn't anybody know what happened to them and why?? You all made my day!!

O'Grady's Potato Chips, Comment by Chris on October 18, 2016 - Report this comment
O'Grady's Augratin were the best chips ever made. I still remember them every time I'm in the chip isle. Wish they would bring them back. So sad.
DIXIES DRUMSTICK SNACK CRACKERS, Comment by Dawn Reno on October 18, 2016 - Report this comment
I loved those crackers!!! I really wish they were available again cause I'd buy them by the cases!!! Best cracker I ever ate in my entire life! My mom always took me to a small little store in Lucasville Ohio called "KINSLERS" and she would always get me about 4 boxes each trip! Please bring them back!
Frozen Toes ice cream bars, Comment by eee on October 18, 2016 - Report this comment
In the Netflix show, "Haters Back Off", the Miranda character ("Miranda Sings" person) eats one of these every day, apparently. It's an experience to see this process...!
Lay's Barbecue Potato Chips (Original), Comment by Charles on October 18, 2016 - Report this comment
Best BBQ chip ever. Old man was a FL mgr. I worked for FL for a few years straight out of college and right when the original BBQ chips were replaced with KC flavor (1994). I didn't notice any sales increases and didn't like the new sweeter flavor. FL has had some real bombs over the years (Delta Gold, Olestra oil "Wow" chips) and many bad decisions made by guys who have never spent any real time in the market or with customers. I think the last really big new product they rolled out and that continues is Tostitos. They always mess with flavorings and some come back under a new label but I have yet to find the original BBQ flavor on any new/repackaged products. The BBQ Wavy lays might be the closest but different texture. Highest margins are corn products so they're always pushing corn. Santitas are the best corn deal and maybe best dipping corn chip on the market, when they're not blown out.
