Indian Corn Chips, Comment by tony on April 19, 2014 - Report this comment
Was the name WIGWAM BBQ Corn Chips? I can't find them anywhere but I loved them. Wide corn chip with lots of BBQ flavor.
Hardee's Big Deluxe, Comment by Gary on April 19, 2014 - Report this comment
I would kill to have an original Hardees with the secret sauce, I think it was the Huskee jr. but not sure. There's nothing nearly as good now. Someone said it was thousand islands but I'm pretty sure that it only resembled that. Anyway, the char on the patty, together with that tangy sauce, cheese, shredded lettuce..... Coincidentally, at one time I lived across from Wilbur Hardee in Greenville, NC, long after he had sold out.
Soup Starter, Comment by Barbara on April 18, 2014 - Report this comment
my whole family loved stew starter. It smelled sooo good when it was cooking. It was so easy just to add a few more vegetables and let simmer. I never tried the soup starter but it sounds like that was excellent too. I'm going to call Wyler. Maybe if enough of us call they will bring it back.

Mello-Roll Ice Cream Cone, Comment by Kay Thomas on April 17, 2014 - Report this comment
I'm from Toronto Canada and we used to get mello rolls from 'Mr West's Store' on the corner of Rogers Road and Caledonia. Moved to the burbs in '58 and never tasted the same type of vanilla ice creme (it had a very distinctive vanilla flavour) until 2001 in of all places Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. Not ice creme in a roll but the very same strong vanilla flavour. Haven't been able to find it since … but I've enjoyed trying!

I love these mints. I remember getting them from Walgreens in spearmint,wintergreen, and orange. They would melt in my mouth.. This was such an awesome candy... Gosh, why can't they bring them back???
Twookies, Comment by Kyle Randolph on April 17, 2014 - Report this comment
I loved Twookies with a passion. John - please do whatever you can do bring these back. Its not just the simple delicious cookie, but the sentimental value as well. I named a teddy bear "Twookie" because of how much I loved these!!!

Bonkers Candy, Comment by Jasper on April 16, 2014 - Report this comment
My father worked at the plant that made these in upstate NY. We were eating them for years before the release as they worked out the formula. Best: grape, worst: chocolate.
Keebler Opera Cremes Cookies, Comment by Damajah on April 15, 2014 - Report this comment
Opera Creams were my all time favorite, and I didn't know they were discontinued. Necco Wafers are pretty hard to find now too.
