What was the complete list of Just Juice flavors, and does anyone have any idea what its packaging looked like and a more detailed description of the candy?
Doolies, Comment by Joe on January 25, 2021 - Report this comment
I had been trying for ages to remember what this delicious snack of my adolescence was called and then found this thread - thank you all! I have such fond memories of devouring these while having late night movie marathons as a kid, but could never remember the name of them. Anyway, after finding the name I also found this gem - a Dooley's TV commercial from the 80's on YouTube (I submitted it as a link above), but here it is again for your enjoyment. I must warn you that it will make crave them and wish them back into existence even more though...https://youtu.be/mYj8tXalk_M
Taco Light from Taco Bell, Comment by Patrick on January 25, 2021 - Report this comment
Back in the early 80’s we had only 1 Taco Bell in Miami-Dade county and we would drive from Homestead to North Miami to get our Taco Lites! That flour white shell was the key to that great tasting taco! It was the first taco I ever had from Taco Bell. And the extra long size made it even better!

Picadilly Jellies, Comment by Oleg on January 22, 2021 - Report this comment
I just tried Sponch marshmallow cookies from Marinela, by Bimbo Bakeries of Mexico, and they're like half a Picadilly Jelly cookie, reminded me of them! :)
Chicken Nuggets, Comment by H.R. Holm on January 21, 2021 - Report this comment
Anyone remember the Banquet single-serve boxes of (frozen) microwaveable chicken nuggets that I am virtually certain first appeared around 1987-89, and were available thru the early 90s? There were six in a single-layer carton, with an accompanying small cup of bbq sauce included. They warmed up really well in the microwave along with the sauce, and I always enjoyed them. They were just the post-work snack to enjoy in particular if one worked the 'swing' shift. Those were the days when I could still eat before going to bed without risking acid reflux afterwards.
