La Choy mini eggrolls, Comment by Jimmy on February 23, 2018 - Report this comment
What a great oil fondue item. Please consider bringing them back into production.🥟
Chocolite, Comment by Sherry on February 23, 2018 - Report this comment
They were my favorite candy bar of all time. I have tried Aero and Wispa. Both are pretty good. Wispa is the best of the two but it still don't live up to a Choco-lite. I am 54 years old and I can still remember how good they were. Nestle, PLEASE bring the back!
Christie Mini Chips, Comment by Jay on February 22, 2018 - Report this comment
Yes, I was having some Munchos from Frito Lay, very similar flavour, and immediately thought of Mini Chips from the 70's. They were smooth and kinda shaped like the 'Scoops' corn chips. They would melt in your mouth until a new one was required. Mini Chips and 'Taco' flavoured Doritos are number one!

Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Dutch on February 20, 2018 - Report this comment
Hi Heather, you former Pirate Girl. I was curious when you said Ent's. chocolate donuts got better so out I went, paid retail for donuts... I know I'm prejudiced but I didn't think they've changed. Maybe you were really hungry that day! Anyway the chocolate coating still seemed waxy. The chocolate cake inside was still light in flavor. And the vanilla cake inside those was still a bit citrus flavored to cover up the mono and diglyceride and polysorbate 60 additives... So it made me remember a consumer survey we ran one time - a "mall intercept" where you ask people in the mall if they want to take a taste test. It's supposedly objective. In any event, 19 out of 20 people surveyed preferred the taste of Dutch Mill over Ent's. Hmm, I wonder why they outsold us 100 to 1... I think its the value of brand building and advertising. It proves you can fool some of the people all the time, but, dear readers, YOU have NEVER been fooled by fluffy advertising of mundane commercial products. Thank You all, Dutch Mill Donut lovers!!!
Le Menu Microwave TV Dinners, Comment by Pat on February 20, 2018 - Report this comment
I worked at the Omaha Swanson and Le Menu plans from 1983 to late 1988, and everyone can rest assured that the handling of food was always above board and top-notch. Campbell Soup was a good company to work for, and the Le Menu dinners were all fantastic. We used to buy them at the company store for like $10 a case ($1 each)!!
