Milk Mate, Comment by Taylor on February 18, 2017 - Report this comment
I'm a child of today, but I came across an 80s Milk Mate commercial which had Corey Feldman in it, I can't get the catchphrase out of my head. "She didn't ask us." But now it looks really good. I wish it was still around today so I could try it๐Ÿ˜‚
Chocolate Snaps, Comment by Denise on February 18, 2017 - Report this comment
I grew up in Jersey City, New Jersey and I really enjoyed these cookies. The Bodega on our corner always had them. I moved away in the 80s and every time I came back home to visit I would buy as many boxes as I could afford. I wish Nabisco would consider selling the Chocolate Snaps again.
Magic Pan crepes, Comment by Peter M. on February 18, 2017 - Report this comment
I wanted to work at Magic Pan. I remember applying for a job at the MP in the South Shore Plaza in Braintree MA in May 1981. They never called me. Bummer.
Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by WIllis on February 17, 2017 - Report this comment
No telling how long Dutch Mill will take to give it back to the people.
La Choy mini eggrolls, Comment by Karen Sue on February 17, 2017 - Report this comment
They were the best! I miss them a lot. We would pig out on them after school. I would crack open both ends and blow through them to cool them down. Then I dipped them in spicey mustard and popped them in my mouth till they were gone
Air Bons, Comment by Le Bon Bon on February 17, 2017 - Report this comment
I miss these so much. I don't belong to Facebook but put me down. I loved them. You could buy them at KMart and Thrifty always had them. Spearmint, Peppermint, Cinnamon, Lemon, and Butterscotch were the ones I remember, but Spearmint was the best. Please oh please Russell Stover bring back the real Air Bon.

Banana Dream, Comment by LaVerne on February 16, 2017 - Report this comment
There was a cake like a Banana Dream, but it was vanilla flavored; cannot remember name and it looked the same. I think it was Dolly Madison.

Cheesy criss cross, Comment by Andrew on February 16, 2017 - Report this comment
It's taken me years to find out what these were! I used to eat them when I visited my grandads pub as a young lad! Definitely should be brought back or does anyone know anything similar?!
Chef Boyardee Pizza Kit, Comment by Dave on February 15, 2017 - Report this comment
The Sausage kit was the best! Does anyone know exactly when they stopped selling it. It was Dad and my favorite, but now Mom can't remember it and swears they never made a Sausage. I've been searching for some history of it to prove it to her. I remember when I was a kid there were only two kinds, Cheese or Sausage. Then later they came out with the Pepperoni kit and the Sausage was phased out, much to our dismay. It was so much better!
