general mills breakfast squares, Comment by Ron on June 15, 2019 - Report this comment
I would get constipated ingesting these squares; guess eating the whole box in a single sitting didn't help. Oh my, after a big BM that consisted of mostly these squares, my waist size would reduce by an inch or two.

Never had FG in a pint from the grocery store, but growing up in Dallas, TX, there was an FG store in the Snider Plaza shopping center right by the campus of SMU. All their ice cream was fantastic, but as I recall, my favorite was actually their raspberry sorbet, which I’d get in a waffle cone (big deal as a kid). Interestingly, there was another very good ice cream store there called Steve’s, which I believe also had a Marble-Slab-type (predecessor) approach to mashing toppings in, though memory is a bit hazy there. Anyway, I always liked FG better, but I found an article from the NYT in July 1986 that said the founder of FG (who later sold pint business to Kraft but kept stores and other FG business lines) also bought the Steve’s brand. Who knew?!? Would post link here, but instructions say no links allowed!

Jess - I'm looking for the same info! I was a child in the late 80s and I remember these REALLY well but I can't find anyone that knows what they were called! I lived in Eastern Canada if that helps at all. Not sure if it was a Canadian market thing (Like the Mr. Juicy by McCain).
Carnation Breakfast Bars, Comment by Scot on June 11, 2019 - Report this comment
Nestle should be looking at these comments. These bars were the best. I loved them.
