Carnation Breakfast Bars, Comment by Mike on August 22, 2017 - Report this comment
Wow, Ditto to all of the above! Nestle, I'd like to say that I would pay $2/ea for these bars today....or $10,000 for the exact recipe. I can still taste them like it is 1982.

Willing to pay if anyone finds the recipe to Kissel chocolate yogurt. I remember the day I went to wegmans with my mom and learned they no longer were carrying the product. It was a sad day. Very sad day.

What a Day......The Eclipse and The DoughBoy1917 make an appearance!!! Many thanks to "granddaughter" or "Mini-Donut" for your years of caretaking of our beloved mentor DoughBoy, you are truly a very special person indeed..... But the DoughBoy continues to enlighten with his wisdom and is SPOT on with his Propaganda-BS-PC views and their effect on America's young. With our education system and of course the Media being the major Propagandist's it's no wonder the youth think what they think and do what they do. Joseph Goebbels, the Reich Minister of Propaganda for the Nazi party would be proud.....check out some of his quotes such as "A lie told once remains a lie but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth" .....does Russian-Trump collusion ring a bell there? Or perhaps even a better quote pertaining to todays frenzy to topple statues of famous Americans....Quoting Goebbels >> "We Shall Reach Our Goal, When We Have The Power To Laugh as We Destroy, as We Smash, whatever Was Sacred To Us as Tradition, as Education, and as Human Affection".... Quite fitting in today's America..... and the DoughBoy see's all, knows all..... God Bless DoughBoy 1917 and his honorable caretaker "Mini-Donut"
Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Doughboy1917 & his grandaughter on August 21, 2017 - Report this comment
Something happened today that bought "dad" back and me; as simple as I might be. "Doughboy" is my grandfather and I've been his caretaker for the last three years; since June of 2014. He was a Korean War vet and a man among men. He talked as of late how he hated the TV show MASH and how it made he and his men look like war mongers and fools. BUT, I've bee writing down his thoughts for my off spring and you know what? HE IS RIGHT about propaganda and all the BS. He loves America and he only has a short time to go. AND, he said North Korea would "bite us in the ass" some day. And look what is going on! He loved American, donuts, Dutch Mill and fighting a good fights. He said there are "Too many whips" n the world today. I've always hated him, but now realize he is right. Where have all the cowboys gone? Why are men today "Jabama Boys" with no guts. I have come so far. He raised my on America, old values and Dutch Mill donuts. I'm here for him and America. And if anyone has a problem with that, too bad.
Banquet Boiling Bags, Comment by Rita on August 21, 2017 - Report this comment
We had these a lot on Saturdays when my Dad would work. Momma would toast bread and fix instant mashed potatoes! they were around in the 60's and 70's. My grandparents kept them too, I think they could get them on sale for 4/$1.00! I do still have a scar on my right hand from some of it dripping on me when I wan pouring out of bag but still crave them sometimes! I always figured they stopped making them because of the burn risk and law suits. Our favorites were Chicken Ala king, Salisbury Steak, Meatloaf, Turkey and dressing. I have gotten the family size sometimes when the craving is really bad!!!
unknown, Comment by Diana A. on August 20, 2017 - Report this comment
Ok, driving me nuts for some time now. What was the brand name of the frozen yogurt or ice cream that was sold cheap at elementary school or gyms or medical offices, that came in a foam cup/bowl with a clear plastic lid with a label on it of the flavor. They had stuff like "mint chip" and "mud pie." Only had the good stuff on top, and the rest of the bowl big cup was just plain icecream. It was cheap ice cream. Anyone recall??
