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!!!!

Banquet Boiling Bags, Comment by Lisa Vee on October 18, 2014 - Report this comment
I long for the Chicken a la king! I remember the little package it came in was shaped like an envelope. We would put the frozen bag on a plate, poke it with a knife and microwave it. So convenient and delicious.

WOW! I thought I was crazy and am so glad I found people looking for this peppermint ball as well. I was only 4 yrs old in 1991 and my mother's friend had the peppermint ones. They were in a jar or tin and they were shiny ping pong ball like. Very thin and light outer shell that crunched and then melted in your mouth instantly. I have been looking ever since then and am so glad to know I am not alone. I vow to make them for everyone to enjoy in every flavor if I ever make millions of dollars! I wish in the meantime someone else would make them for us. By the way, like everyone said it is not the puffed powdery ones like Bob's and king Leo and Russell Stover puff balls. The ones we are asking about are perfect round balls. I love you all and thank you so much for all your help and stories/memories of these balls of heaven.

Creamy Burger, Comment by Karen B. on October 18, 2014 - Report this comment
For years I have been trying to find this delicious ice cream burger I enjoyed as a kid. I began to think I had dreamed it all up because no one around me knew what I was talking about! I can't believe there are others just like me! I remember the box and even though you all have described it perfectly I still want to see one and eat it!!! I'm emailing any and all ice cream companies to bring back the Creamy Burger!! Thank guys, we all can't be crazy! :)

Fudge Jumbles, Comment by purplerose on October 17, 2014 - Report this comment
I LOVED fudge jumbles,yum yum cookies, and those lacy marathon bars! Oh! Real candy cigarettes (chocolate and white) The 80's had some really nifty foods. I'd love to make a brief trip back in time to buy some bygone treats!
Hot and Cold Nerds, Comment by Chris on October 16, 2014 - Report this comment
Charlie - the cold side was indeed wintergreen. At least it was in the boxed that I got. Perhaps they changed it to peppermint a little down the line, but I don't remember, as I only bought the Hot/Cold mix two or three times.
Creamy Burger, Comment by Nikki D on October 16, 2014 - Report this comment
I live in SC and used to buy them from a convenience store in Orangeburg. I still crave those things every once in a while! I so wish they would sell them again. The best ice cream treat ever!
Little Toms Soda Pop, Comment by Jim Kalin on October 16, 2014 - Report this comment
Little Tom's. I remember at parties that kids would begin one, then forget about it while playing. Bees would swarm the bottles because of course the beverage was pure sugar. Haha. My folks got them in old Brooklyn for our first communions and birthday parties. I think some of my aunts probably poured vodka in the bottle after a few slugs so their husbands wouldn't know they were drinking.
Franco American Macaroni and Cheese, Comment by Dave D. on October 16, 2014 - Report this comment
I grew up eating Franco American Mac n Cheese. I LOVED IT! Too bad it's not around anymore. I bought a can of the Campbell's mac n cheese a couple days ago, it was pretty gross.
