Doritos... the original ones!!, Comment by d3rtbag on December 10, 2017 - Report this comment
I found this while searching for "round Bravos tortilla chips," and yes, I remember what you're talking about. I was born in 1979, and Doritos were a huge part of my diet, in the 80s and early 90s. I had two older cousins that I looked up to, and those guys had to have a bag of Doritos in their hands, at all times. My earliest memories are of them eating out of their own big bags, while watching kung-fu flicks. Anyways, I can't describe the taste but the Doritos of today are nothing compared to the ones I had, back in the 80s. I remember when the cool ranch flavor came out, and I refused to eat any other chip, because I was so in love with those damn things. I always talk about how Doritos aren't what they used to be, but the people I say this to, have no idea what I mean. Glad to see there are people that remember the taste. Now back to searching for "round Bravos tortilla chips." They used to be round, right? I swear they used to be round but maybe I'm just remembering wrong.

I have the last box of "mixed berry" and if anyone is desperate, they can bid on it currently listed on eBay. There is hope :-)
Corn Quistos , Comment by Marlene on December 10, 2017 - Report this comment
Oh yes those were amazing. Loved the crunchy corn shell, and flavorful nacho center. I would buy by the case if they had these again. Combos are not the same.

Suzanne, are you still interested in selling your crate of bottles?
Mr Salty Pretzels, Comment by Kathy on December 07, 2017 - Report this comment
I loved Mr. Salty, along with Chesty potato chips. All the good brands are gone. So sad. However, if you're lucky, you can find pretzels that are close to Mr. Salty at Aldi's. I say "if you're lucky" because I bought some to try, loved them, went back to get more and it was like they'd been teleported to Jupiter. Gone and haven't been seen since. A clerk said a lot of their brand of products are just around for one shipment then they get no more. BUT, if you can find them, try them. Delicious!
Puff-O-Fruit, Comment by Maritimer on December 07, 2017 - Report this comment
The Puff-O-Fruit was hands-down THE most addictive store-bought sweet treat of my childhood! They were so popular that the corner store could barely keep them in stock — they always seemed to be running out. I remember when they mentioned that they were being fazed-out, I got so depressed; the cashiers never explained why it was happening, either, just said they didn't know... So I blew my paper-route money buying and gorging on as many as I could get until they stopped coming in altogether. Blueberry was UNBELIEVABLE, but strawberry was a close second. (Actually, I heard more than once in more recent years that the Puff-O-Fruit product was done away with because it contained a lot of the food additive propelyne glycol, which is toxic in high amounts. Considering how dangerously delicious these things were, I can see why there would be concerns! Maybe some people got really sick or even died and it was all hu$hed-up, who knows..?)
Chu-Bops, Comment by Rob Lambert on December 07, 2017 - Report this comment
LaSponge: Chu-Bops began in 1977, continuing into the mid 1980s. Amurol Company of suburban Chicago manufactured these replica LP covers with bubble gum disc. The Fleetwood Mac Rumours cover may have been the only one. Several dozen, ranging from Elvis to Bowie, were reprinted. Also a hit in the UK, as many Brits are posting them on eBay. Occasionally, in Chicago, radio commercials aired on WLS (with John Landecker and Brant Miller) and WLUP (Jonathon Brandmeier, 1983-4).

Chu-Bops, Comment by LaSponge on December 07, 2017 - Report this comment
These were really more 1970's than 80'S right? Wasn't there a Fleetwood Mac "Rumours" one circa 1977? Dang wasn't that a great album?
Whitney's Yogurt, Comment by Carolyn M on December 06, 2017 - Report this comment
If Whitney’s yogurt was so fattening then why don’t they get rid of pudding? That’s what people loved it was made of REAL ingredients, not artificial. The consistency of custard pudding. What about the people who don’t have to worry about weight? I weigh 130 lbs on a good day. Oh that’s right the obesity problem in the USA. I really miss Whitney’s yogurt. Yoplait has nothing on them. Loved the Pina Colada especially since it was thick. Please bring it back
Chocolate Mint Bubblicious, Comment by jen on December 06, 2017 - Report this comment
This was my favorite gum as a kid in the early 80's! I remember buying it at the five and dime.
Magic Pan crepes, Comment by Sheila on December 06, 2017 - Report this comment
I used to go to the Magic Pan in downtown Detroit. It was such a nice place, clean and fantastic crepes. My fav - Cherry Royale. It was to-die-for.. Wish they would come back like downtown Detroit has done....
