Doritos... the original ones!!, Comment by Maria on July 25, 2016 - Report this comment
Loved those Doritos! They could bring them back and call them Throwback Doritos. Like they are doing with all the other stuff being brought back.
Mrs. Grass's Soup , Comment by Joyce on July 24, 2016 - Report this comment
I have been looking for Mrs. Grass Onion Soup Mix all week. I like to put it in the Crock Pot with a roast. Turns out wonderful. I see I can get it at Amazon.com. Just didn't want to go to the internet to order. But No stores in my area carry it.

When I could no longer find them in my local Midwest grocery store I asked my sister to look for them in Florida. She hunted them down and bought every box she could find for me. I can still taste them in my mind. Umami at its bet!

Jolly Ranchers, Comment by Shen on July 22, 2016 - Report this comment
The dollar tree near me sells the regular hard candy, I could have sworn I did see fire/cinnamon in it but I didn't bother to try it because I love cherry the most, I'll go back and see if it s there because they had a whole ton of packs with it. I used to LOVE when kids in junior high would bring the cherry sticks, they were the best. You can't find it online anymore because it's out of stock everywhere it sucks they got rid of the best. As for people who keep posting about help for projects on jolly rancher, please just Google. It has all you need to know about jolly rancher lol.

Banquet Boiling Bags, Comment by Ronald on July 21, 2016 - Report this comment
Many years ago I was a top MLM distributor for Yurika Foods Corporation here in Nevada. Convenience, shelf life in weather extremes of 50% below zero to 120% above zero and for 2o plus years. Then there was taste, product quality...I could go and on regarding the merits of this product but based on the many comments, you all know what I'm eluding to. What amazes me is why someone has not jumped on this "financial gravy train" and reintroduced this concept. Oh, and by the way, the advent of the microwave has nothing to do with the company's demise and would not cause the slightest corporate concern. Perhaps one day some entrepreneur, with vision, will see the obvious potential and resurrect this most incredible business. Till then, God bless you all.
Chocola (drink), Comment by Tom on July 21, 2016 - Report this comment
Not sure what you folks are talking about with Rock-Cola Cafe. It is not dirty and I have never, ever seen a bug anywhere in there. It is just an old establishment and some people don't like that. Never once have they pushed anything on anyone that I have seen. I am pretty certain you are making stuff up.
Keebler Krunch Twists, Comment by Krunch Twist Fan on July 20, 2016 - Report this comment
Everybody talks about the nacho flavor, but the cheddar cheese was my favorite. Used to eat them with sour cream & chive dip, while playing D&D. Wish they would bring them back.

Becky, from February 05, 2016. When did you work for Zapata/Zantigos? Which location? I was a manager in the Cincinnati area and transferred to Minneapolis in the early 80's. I was at Lake Street and DT on Hennepin Ave.
