Sour cream and onion Doritos, Comment by mdj123 on April 29, 2017 - Report this comment
A little over a year ago I found a bag at my Local Kroger store. I immediately bought it. I contacted Frito Lay about bringing them out again maybe as a promo. If we all email thm we might be able to get them to move on this.

Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by GM Boboy on April 27, 2017 - Report this comment
Hey all good people, I'm back if you'll have me. I'm back with a new logo and a new attitude. That's interesting, Sir Dutch, about how the Arnold men helped make you The Legend. Where have you gone Mapos and the humble custodian for Sir Doughboy? I'm taking some time to gather up my marbles and will send out my biggest mailer to date. Spam will bring back the dough!

Bring it back! My last Hardy's Husky was 25 years ago.I have been searching for that special taste for years. Wish they could bring it back.
Rondo Citrus Soda, Comment by Johnboy on April 26, 2017 - Report this comment
I remember a bit of a risqué slogan they used for a short while. "Rhondo (Ronda) goes down fast." We teenagers appreciated the thought.

Not m&ms. Chocolate was more dense. Mom brought them to me after work in the early 80s
Jalepeno Lay's Potato Chips, Comment by Chip Master on April 26, 2017 - Report this comment
Forgot if it was plain Jalapeno or with Cheddar, but yes, I remember them. They were NON-Kettle, and to this day, I cannot find a non-kettle jalapeno chips that would replicate Lay's version in the 80's. Another one I like was Ruffle's Cajun Spice with that old dude that said, "I gauron-tee it!"
Chocola (drink), Comment by Just Rick on April 25, 2017 - Report this comment
I heard the owner bought a place on Main in Beech Grove to serve as a bar. If using the rock-cola cafe is an indicator, then the new place will be just as bad. Hated to see the meat market on main close and for sure his new place will be running with bugs and vermin like his place on Brookville Rd.
Shake A Pudding, Comment by Judy Molnar on April 25, 2017 - Report this comment
Just asked my husband if he remembers this and he doesn't but I sure do...He is only one year younger so not sure why he never heard of it as we loved it in the late 60's and yes lid came off on me more than once..lol..sure wished we could go back in time!!
