Snow Balls, Comment by Roiz on September 22, 2014 - Report this comment
It was usually pink. They also made white, green for st. pats day, orange for Halloween and brown ones too.
Yoplait Dessert Yogurt, Comment by Laura on September 22, 2014 - Report this comment
I came across this also looking for & craving the awesome breakfast yogurt. It was so good!! I thought maybe it was just not in my area any more. Very sad that it isn't being made.
Boone's Farm Strawberry Hill, Comment by lisa on September 21, 2014 - Report this comment
I really want to find "tickled pink" do they still make it and where would I find it? You can't have an 80's party w/out it!!
Tostitos, Comment by mellokitty1969 on September 20, 2014 - Report this comment
I remember these chips from the early 1980's and they were the best..way better than Dorito's. Now if Frito-Lay can produce Wasabi-ginger or Cappuccino flavored potato chips why can't they bring back Tostito nacho cheese flavored chips?
7Up Gold, Comment by La Sponge on September 20, 2014 - Report this comment
100% Nastay...Whew! Too much Spice flavor that didn't mix well with SoCo...stick to diet 7up for that. This is on the 90's page as well.
Burger King Whaler Sandwich, Comment by Rod on September 20, 2014 - Report this comment
In the 60's I would get four or five Whalers a week. Then they made the first change which I believe was the coating and was down heel from there. All the new fish that they have come back with are awful at best. All BK needs to do is drag out the old formula and I'd be back several times a week again. As it is now I only hit BK once or twice a year.
Franco American Macaroni and Cheese, Comment by David Pettus on September 20, 2014 - Report this comment
I'm 63 years old and I STILL remember the great taste of Franco-American mac & cheese- with the "earthworm" pasta and that special blend of cheese that I used to eat right out of the can. I STILL look for it every time I visit a food mart or grocery. If I could find it, I'd buy a truck load! What does it take to get the attention of the Campbell's people?? I thought they were trying to make money over there. You know, by selling popular caned foods. I just got finished reading testimonials form people all over the country, made over the span of a solid decade, begging Campbell's to bring this product back. I want to add my own request right now. BRING IT BACK!

Tostitos, Comment by Kim on September 19, 2014 - Report this comment
The cheese tostitos are the best chips I ever had. Doritos don't come close to this. Oh how I miss them.
Creamy Burger, Comment by Casey Callaway on September 19, 2014 - Report this comment
When I was pregnant with my son (who turned 20 today), I craved the Creamy Burger so bad. My husband chased down the ice cream truck and the guy sold him the last he had. That is the last one I have ever eaten because we were told that they don't sell them anymore.

OMG!!!! That was the best ice cream that I have ever tasted. I bought them in Greensboro, NC. Havent had one since 1995:-(
I'Screams Cookies, Comment by Angie on September 19, 2014 - Report this comment
I think that Oreo recently came out with something very similar to these. I know they may not be exactly the same thing but it may satisfy your craving for an ice cream cookie.
Cheetos--Bacon/cheese flavor, Comment by Celene Balvaneda on September 19, 2014 - Report this comment that's the site I found that will ship them to the US. Not cheap but sooo worth it !!!!
Velamints, Comment by Katie on September 18, 2014 - Report this comment
My grandmother used to give me Velamints to keep me quiet in Church when I was little.
Summit Candy Bar, Comment by Candy on September 18, 2014 - Report this comment
I used to buy this candy bar all the time as a child. I was telling a much younger coworker about them and he suggested I look online because you can purchase novelties from the past. I was VERY disappointed to find out they are no longer available. So many childhood food & snacks from the past are gone. I wish Mars would bring back the original summit candy bar PLEASE.

I've been searching for the LeMenu plates for years. I had 2 dozen and now down to two (one is cracked). Love them. I wish I could find some to purchase.
