Old London's Cheese Waffle Snacks, Comment by Christine on April 24, 2015 - Report this comment
back in the 60's, Old London Cheese Doodles were so good. Totally different than Wise Cheez Doodles today. They used to be thinner and SOFT and delicious. Today they're okay but too crispy, similar flavoring but nothing as good as the Old London brand. Would love to have the old ones again!
carnation breakfast squares, Comment by Mark T. S on April 24, 2015 - Report this comment
Those breakfast squares were great to take to school or work when you were in a hurry. It was true, you ate two of those squares from the packet and that would fill before lunch. I enjoyed them with a cup of coffee or tea. I hope like thousands out there who feels the same way I do that they will make a come back. Excellent product.
5 minute fudge, Comment by Angie S. on April 24, 2015 - Report this comment
It was actually called 4-minute fudge and I wish I could submit the photo I have of it but i don't think they are updating the site anymore because I've tried to submit pictures before and it never works.
Nabisco Marshmallow Sandwich, Comment by Judy on April 24, 2015 - Report this comment
In the 50's my grandparents always had a chocolate covered marshmallow cookies in the house for me. The cookie had a cherry jelled layer over or under the marshmallow, maybe in the center of the marshmallow. What a special treat. I loved it when my grandpa would pick me up on a Friday after school and we would ride in his truck all around St. Paul to pick up car engine parts for his auto repair garage. I felt so special riding next to him on the bench seat. We would sing "School Days"and "I'm in Love With The Man In The Moon". How I loved those rides. After dinner - I ate those lovely cookies.
Sundance, Comment by Christine on April 24, 2015 - Report this comment
Oh my! I would love to have these back, my girlfriends and I would only drink these. Our fav was the black currant! I still try to find something to even come close till today. And nothing even will ever compare to those little AWesome sundance drinks. I remember I was driving and got stopped cause the cop thought it was a wine cooler :) he even laughed afterwords..

There is a group on Facebook trying to get Kemps to bring back the Gingerbread Men ice cream sandwiches... And hopefully someday the Chilly Bears too. There is a picture of the box on the site. :-)

Crunch Gators, Comment by Potatochip Bob on April 23, 2015 - Report this comment
A little history for those wondering about these chips. They were chips produced during the late 80's. Jalapeno, BBQ and Plain. Sadly their popularity was their undoing. They began to gain so much popularity that Lay's actually bought out the Tator company, and essentially destroyed the brand, and the chip you knew is now called "Kettle Cooked". RIP Crunch Tators- you were loved by millions.
Little Caesar's Pizza, Comment by corey on April 22, 2015 - Report this comment
Does anyone remember the Slice!Slice! ? It was two "slices" (each one was really two though so you basically had half a medium pizza) for 3 bucks? God it was so good back then. Cheese was completely different. Mon madness ($5 1 topping large) and Wacky Wednesday's($4 1 topping medium).

Way to go with the rally monkey. That Hitler was one bad dude, but so was the destroyer of Dutch's. BEST DONUTS OF ALL TIME, FOOLS!
unknown, Comment by Emily on April 21, 2015 - Report this comment
I'm looking for a chip/snack made in the late 80's well into the 90s. It was shaped like a helmet, made of potato and came in possibly a white bag. Sold at krogers (in Memphis Tn)

Soap Candies, Comment by Ally on April 21, 2015 - Report this comment
I so remember my dad getting us the soap flavored gum when we were in a mall once in Saskatoon. It was called Thrill or Thrills. I didn't mind it too much but my sisters didn't like it they all had to spit the gum out.
Dirty Laundry Candy, Comment by Ally on April 21, 2015 - Report this comment
I so remember this candy! We had it in our kitchen by the stove I think. For some reason I only remember eating it one piece at a time. Like one piece a day or something. I guess my parents didn't want me to eat it all at once. I always thought they were vitamins for some reason.
Le Menu Microwave TV Dinners, Comment by Nancy P. on April 21, 2015 - Report this comment
I am so thrilled to know i'm not the only person who kept the plates - the thing I loved most was that the meals were more like a meal than most things sold today - the microwave entreé has devolved into protein and cheap starch (rice or pasta). even weight watchers, which preaches the value of vegetables, produces meals with less than a quarter-serving of veg. Although the plates were probably the reason the line was discontinued (too pricy compared to vaccum process thin plastic 'dishes') the food was superb. mmmm chicken parm! I'd be willing to pay a premium price for that chicken parm. Glad to be among similar-minded individuals!
Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Doughboy1917 on April 21, 2015 - Report this comment
Yesterday was Hitler's birthday. The real "Hitler" was the one that took down Dutch Mill. Here's to all our boys that fought in the War To End All Wars. Movies will be coming out about our doughboys in two years.
PDQ Drink Mix, Comment by GnuGuy on April 20, 2015 - Report this comment
PDQ, made by Ovaltine but much tastier, came out in the 1960s. The PDQ mascot was a gnu... get it? Gnu, Gnu PDQ. Great stuff!

Air Bons, Comment by Diane on April 20, 2015 - Report this comment
Hi All, I just wrote to Lindt & Spr√ľngli who are the new owners of R Stover and Whitmans. I told them about how we all love the air bons and hoped that they would bring them back. I think they could make a ton of money on them. Maybe if more wrote they would at least give it a go.
