Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Mr. & Mrs. Maples of the Heather: God Bless Ottawa! on October 23, 2014 - Report this comment
Please all say a prayer for our brave city of Ottawa and this sad time. Found out only minutes after yesterday's post and have been in tears ever since. And to be political, wake up Canada and U.S.A. and protect our borders!

Swiss cheese flavored crackers, Comment by Sandy and Cindy on October 22, 2014 - Report this comment
I have looked for the Swiss Cheese crackers for years and while I have accepted that they are no longer made, I will still look in hopes! My sister and I loved these and would giggle and laugh because we called them "fart crackers". I remember my grandma calling us silly girls because we giggled so much about them but they were delicious!
Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Mr. & Mrs. Maples of the Heathers! on October 22, 2014 - Report this comment
Great thoughts guys, but a little over my head with the wars, dragon teeth and gassed with mustard and gravy. What Dragon teeth, that like Harry Potter or something. But I'd love to cook up about 250 pounds of pound cakes! Little sad many old friends and even foes have not come back. And Doughboy1917, please understand we can even have the "funny people" back, too. I know folks like you and Donut Man EM obviously have class and intellect, but even the weird one's can help our overall cause. I mean, "come on man," even you can admit the "donuts" out there now a not second, but third rate. How do you feel when you see a box of Tasty Cakes instead of Dutch Mills? It's OK to be angry.
Magic Middles, Comment by Xione on October 21, 2014 - Report this comment
I loved these cookies. I bought them 3 and 4 packages at a time. I still reminiss* to co-workers and friends about them. They also brought out mini-middles too. The Pepperidge Farms Milano Melts cookies are pretty good. Not quite the same as the Magic Middles, but close enough. I hope they bring these back in my life time. I would like to taste them just once more before i die lol.
microwave cakes, Comment by Ana on October 21, 2014 - Report this comment
I had them much earlier than 1986!!! We had them back in 1980-1983. My sister used to make them for us in our playroom and it was always the carrot cake with white icing of some sort. We were on an Air Force base in Germany but we'd buy them in American stores. I've been looking for these. Nobody knows the name?
Twix with Peanut Butter, Comment by cynthia on October 21, 2014 - Report this comment
The new PB Twix sucks. The Pb is different and the chocolate cookie part is just not good to me. Please bring back the original peanut butter Twix.
Magic Pan crepes, Comment by Carol on October 21, 2014 - Report this comment
Magic Pan in Paramus NJ. It was our date night place. Friday night, I'd meet my hubby at the bus stop as he arrived from NYC. The kids with their grandma, and the night was ours. Loved their food and our special time. It's been 45 years of wedded bliss and I can still taste those magic cheese balls. Sure wish they'd come back!

I have been looking for these for years. I see Russell Stover is making them again

These were undoubtedly the best chips ever! I talk about them all the time. I do wish they would make a comeback.
Le Menu Microwave TV Dinners, Comment by Beverly on October 20, 2014 - Report this comment
I used to save these plates and my husband threw most of them away. I've used the one remaining until it is cracked. Wish I could find a few myself. I heat a lot of things in the microwave using the plate. We too loved the meals!!!!
