Downeyflake Frozen Waffles , Comment by Bruce on September 28, 2016 - Report this comment
Like everyone has said, I grew up on Downeyflake waffles, and today's waffles taste like cardboard in comparison. I hope someday someone picks up the recipe and they are available again. If it happens, I will buy a freezer just for the waffles
Nabisco Marshmallow Sandwich, Comment by Rebecca A. on September 28, 2016 - Report this comment
My dad always talks about this cookie and how he remembers eating them with his dad in New York before his dad passed away. I wanted to get my dad a box for his bday since it was his last memory at the age of 3 with his dad...but haven't found anything.:( But all of your comments help...I now have a better idea of how they look and what was inside. I'll try to make them. Thanks everyone!!!

I found them a couple years ago! I found them at a Dollar Tree store. I thought they were bringing them back into circulation so I only bought 2 bags.I went back the following week and they were gone.I should have bought them all.

Punky's, Comment by Chad on September 26, 2016 - Report this comment
I loved Punky's even more than the big chewy sweet tarts as a kid! I wish they'd bring them back, even if it's only for 1 month!
Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Arnie'ARMY on September 26, 2016 - Report this comment
We lost Arnold Palmer yesterday. So sad, but being close to the family, we knew it was near. God Bless this wonderful man and great spokes person for the game of golf. He was one of a kind. Will cry today with a half lemonade and ice tea drink. Sadly I can't share that moment with my dad or Dutch Mill or Uncle Arnold. But, I know they are both in a better place; dad and Arnold that is.

Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Kyle M on September 26, 2016 - Report this comment
Since around the 5th grade maybe 4th we'd get Dutch Mill but couldn't have it for breakfast. It was a very special treat as it cost more than other products. And for good reason. They were the best.

Tiger Red brings back great memories with my cousins. My cousins used to make Floats with vanilla ice cream and TIGER RED. AWESOME times. Wish Tiger Red would make a return!!
