Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Heather the War God like Woman on November 18, 2017 - Report this comment
Dang, have you boys taken it to another level. I, too, could not go to the hot dog place. Well, I actually wen there once, but didn't look for anything. Point A) I would like to meet you GM Turd, but can't do it yet; thank you for not rushing me. B) DonutHead DM is right. That Doough Boy man and the minni girl is great! SO GREAT. I read that and it made me cry. C) Here is my humble contribution ... "Once more to the breach, dear friends, once more; Or close the wall with our English dead In peace there's nothing SO becomes a man (OR WOMAN) As Modest stillness and humility. BUT when blast of was blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger!" P.S. Love this Jonny fever dude. Great poet.

Lisa: Pinterest has a picture of the candies, REALLY zoomed in to show facial detail. They were made from 1972 to 1991 in Brooklyn, by World Candies. Haven't seen a wrapper shot yet, but there may be one. Also, try

KNWerner I have been looking for those cookies too. They also came in a green wrapper. I want to say they were made by Jacks Cookie Co. but since they were bought out by Murray I haven't been able to find anything at all on them. They were the BEST Christmas cookies!
Picadilly Jellies, Comment by Jerry on November 17, 2017 - Report this comment
My wife makes fun of me when I tell her to look for the picadilly cookies. They have to bring them back, they were soooo good. I can almost taste them now and just like potato chips you could not eat just one.
Fruit Face, Comment by Lisa Lo on November 17, 2017 - Report this comment
I remember Fruit Faces very well. I have searched and searched and can not find one single picture. AND NO none of us are crazy!!! They were square shaped candies in the box the size of lemon heads, the same texture as a candy cigarette, maybe a little smoother texture. IF ANYONE FINDS THEM PLEASE PROVIDE A PICTURE!! I have been trying to explain these to my co-workers during our retro-candy discussion.
Rax burgers kids meals with gator cup, Comment by Anonymous12354 on November 16, 2017 - Report this comment
They weren't burgers, they were roast beef sandwiches. And there are a few locations left in Ohio and Illinois. I don't know if they still have the plastic gator cups though.

Little Toms Soda Pop, Comment by Alberta on November 15, 2017 - Report this comment
We had little tins soda around all the time so many kids around I loved all the flavors I remember my grandparents always bought 10 cases a month for us to have with dinner every night. I wish they would bring them back again so today's grandparents could get them for the kids to much super size everything . I know I would buy 10 or more cases a month for my grand kids and of course myself I would drive to Marietta every 2 weeks to the beverage store and buy 6 cases for my daughter when she was little and her friends. I think about them all the time. Do you think they might come back I hope so.

Great one Johnny Fever from hit the trifecta in my book with the 3 necessities that are a must in my book.... 1. DUTCH MILL accolades or remembrances. 2. "Dog Pile on the Rabbit" ...Not on "BUGS" but on that Filthy Stenchy Smokey Silty Low Grade Horse Feed Producer TastyCrud in Philly....and.... 3. HISTORY...Love History to be at least if not taught in our schools taught on this fantastic web page.....DoughBoy 1917 would love the Churchill reference in our long Dutch Mill uphill battle we fight..."Whatever the Cost May Be"

"When I think back to Dutch Mill, my heart burns like an ember. When I recall Tastykake, I'd like to slap them with my member. Dutch Mill will always live on, we shall be sure to remember. Fore like Churchill said, we shall never surrender."
Carnation Breakfast Bars, Comment by Jeff on November 14, 2017 - Report this comment
I used to live off these things in my twenties. The only ones I liked (never tried the others) was peanut butter. I found a very close albeit expensive resemblance, Atkinson Peanut Butter Bars. Try them.. taste the same, size is a little off.

Le Menu Microwave TV Dinners, Comment by Larry Ingram on November 14, 2017 - Report this comment
When I got divorced after 20 years of marriage, I survived on Le Menue. On one occasion I had a date over for dinner, microwaved 2 LeMenue dinners and then transferred them to a China plate in the kitchen and put them on the dining room table. My date ( (who I later married) was impressed with my cooking skills! Too bad they stopped making them as they were excellent meals.
