I'm so glad there are others that remember FG and all it's deliciousness. I remember going to the A&P with my mom as a child and getting it. It was amazing!!! Everyone I have ever asked about it looked at me like I was crazy, they had no idea what I was talking about. I guess they missed out. I wish they would bring FG back, that and the Creamee Burger. The two best ice creams ever!
Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by Mr. & Mrs. Maples of the Heathers! on March 04, 2015 - Report this comment
Hey EM, "poor" Gordy sure is a sad case. Weird how somebody comes on to say they never had them. But maybe that's who needs them the most. Dave brings up a great question, "Will people now a days pay for better donuts." We will, but this is no longer the 80s. Obama killing the economy and lower overall standards are sure making an impact. But what do I know. And by the way, What's up Larz?! Proud to say you gave a message after Mapes sent you an e-mail. Mapes says, "We could he heroes, but just for one day!" He said you'd get that from hockey.

Chocolate Cow chocolate drink, Comment by El Olympico on March 03, 2015 - Report this comment
I use to buy this at "Cuz's" corner store in Seaside Heights in the early 1970's (the guy who owned the store called everybody "Cuz") while I stocked up on pro wrestling magazines (another item only found at "Cuz's") . . lets pool some venture capital and bring it back!

This was the best Ice Cream ever I do miss it and I've never forgotten the bliss that came from every spoonful. I wish it would come back just so I could share some with my kids.
Air Bons, Comment by regina roach age 44 on March 02, 2015 - Report this comment
I have been looking for YEARS for these. They were the best!! But when I got them in the late 70's early 80's they were in a bag. About the size of a reg. Size of Halloween candy. And you could see them. They were not wrapped. I am still looking!! So if anyone finds them please give an update... Thanks
Doritos... the original ones!!, Comment by Adam on March 02, 2015 - Report this comment
Everyone needs to try Tom's brand Nacho Cheese flavored Tortilla chips. Seriously they taste just like the old Doritos. They are cheaper also. They spend their money on actual flavor rather than b.s. advertising. When you are finished eating them you'll have thick layers of cheese on your fingers just like the good old days.
Tiger Red Soda, Comment by Chuck ,New Albany,Indiana. on March 02, 2015 - Report this comment
Tiger Red!!!! The best Soft Drink ever! I recall when the drink started getting hard to come by. Heard the rumors that 'They' were going to stop making it! I found the last two cans , that I know of, in the whole county! I bought them and the Night Owl food market and slowly drank them....savoring that bubblegum like flavor! I do miss Tiger Red. Always a treat! I wonder how one might be able to find the formula for this drink? If so, seems it could be replicated and just change the dye, if that really was the trouble. And no, it does not taste anything like big red. Many happy memories thinking about Tiger Red!
Chocola (drink), Comment by Viktor on March 01, 2015 - Report this comment
I remember when Indianapolis' WTTV Channel 4 was producing Choc-ola commercials in song. Like the old Burma Shave signs, the song seemed to have new added lyrics in each commercial. I can recall a few verses. Favorite drink of young and old. Drink it hot or drink it cold. Choc-ola! Go to the store and get some now. It's the best thing from a cow. Choc-ola! Hurry up and take a drink. It will put you in the pink. Choc-ola!
Keebler Opera Cremes Cookies, Comment by Jane on March 01, 2015 - Report this comment
My husband talks about these cookies all the time. I have never had them, but I can assure you that if you bring them back, they WILL be purchased. I do remember your Fudge Sandwich Cookies and Frosted Oatmeal cookies. I KNOW they would be big hits, too. Please rethink not bringing them back. I agree with the other post -- the fans of these cookies are now the largest population group. WE WANT COOKIES!!!! YOUR COOKIES!!!
Twookies, Comment by Teresa M on March 01, 2015 - Report this comment
Please bring them back! We used to get them at school at recess. They were the best cookies ever! I've searched for them for years.
Chipsters, Comment by greg on March 01, 2015 - Report this comment
I loved Chipsters. I would tell my nephew and niece that they were fried monkey tongues so they wouldn't want them, had them all to myself. Wish nabisco still made them.
Jell-o Gelatin Pops, Comment by Terri on March 01, 2015 - Report this comment
I HATE it so much when I fall in love with a product then all of a sudden can't get it anymore. I loved them and loved giving them to my kids back then. They didn't get messy & drippy like others. Wish I could get them for Grandkids!

Donald Duck Orange Juice, Comment by Jason on March 01, 2015 - Report this comment
I was stationed in Germany in 1991 and they sold Donald Duck Orange Juice in the Commissary. Absolutely the best OJ I've ever had. I used to chill it ice cold in my mini fridge in the barracks and drink it in a short glass like a shock of scotch. It was by far my favorite OJ of all time. I haven't seen it in the States since I retired from Germany but I'll keep looking. I live in Dallas now so I'm sure I'll find it out here somewhere.
O'Grady's Potato Chips, Comment by Patty E on March 01, 2015 - Report this comment
I would just love to be able to buy these just once again. I can't believe they were removes from the market. There isn't any chip that comes close. All the different flavors Lays tries to make, all they need to do is bring these back!!!!! Please
