Little Caesar's Pizza, Comment by Shawn on July 21, 2017 - Report this comment
Not sure why they had to go and change the ingredients. Most of us look forward to familiar tastes, especially when we get older. These pizzas and the hot & ready pizzas are now terrible! They do not taste the same at all. They have become so unfamiliar that I refuse to eat there anymore.
Whitney's Yogurt, Comment by J g on July 21, 2017 - Report this comment
I've been wondering about Whitney's for a while now...Has anyone tried Liberte? It's thick, creamy and really good. Also, Emmi, which used to distribute to the New York area (though may have stopped), is also excellent. European yogurts tend to be creamier and higher in fat, so better tasting and more authentic.
Jungle Jims, Comment by Rob Lambert on July 20, 2017 - Report this comment
Jungle Jim's cotton candy goes back to 1976. In Cincinnati, a huge, safari-themed market, Jungle Jim's Foodieland/International Market is still around. Originally, just a produce market nestled in a mostly industrial part of town, expanded to the monstrosity it is today. A second location opened in Fairfield, Ohio. The only two in the country.

It was a sad day in grade school when you forgot that dime and got no jungle juice or orange aide
Pizza Puff Chips, Comment by some guy on July 20, 2017 - Report this comment
Well the trademark expired in 89'. There is no chance these are still in existence, our only hope is for a big gun like Frito to pick it up and start making it, however, there is so much competition in this category its highly unlikely. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news for you all. Also, The original recipe is likely no longer known being they were first made in 1965 and have been out of production now for near 3 decades, in fact its also likely that some of the ingredients used are no longer approved for food use by the FDA, hence all the insane cravings still 30 years later, makes you think for sure.
Dutch Mill Donuts , Comment by DonutHead EM on July 20, 2017 - Report this comment
It's not our 80's Midnight Fantasy -> Undercover Angel - but her brother.....a second fiddle for sure..... But great work "brother" on gathering intel from that low grade cow/horse feed producer in Philly and how DM remains a thorn in their side for all these years.......... Not sure but "Ty Cobb" sounds a lot like that "Rapscallion" Barry M. that "Bilge Rat" that tormented our beloved Heather/Anne Bonney for quite some time. Seems a perfect place for that "Picaroon" Barry M is in TastyKakes Galley brewing a hideous concoction of Bilgewater, Cackle-Fruit and Burgoo into such a vile Loblolly that every Hearty "or Tastykake Customer for that matter" will keel over, Kiss the Gunners Daughter and Heave Ho last nights Grub into Davy Jones Locker......But Hear-Ye all on how great it is that our Brethren includes Dutch who seems to be a reg on this here page.....but do sorely miss the Great One -Doughboy 1917...pray he's still among us and through his honorable family grace us with his guidance, wit and wisdom...

O'Grady's Potato Chips, Comment by george on July 19, 2017 - Report this comment
I love chips, mainly thick ridged potato chips. I just recently found out about Sobey's Compliments Extraaa flavour ones and they taste great. Thick and harder than the usual Ruffles and its ilk. The Extraaa brought back memories of the O'Grady's chips that I had back in the 80s, and unfortunately Lay's discontinued them shortly after. These Extraaa chips seem to be sold only in full-size regular Sobeys stores, not the smaller Sobey's Urban Fresh ones.
Tostitos, Comment by Julie on July 19, 2017 - Report this comment
My grandma used to buy these for us to have with our sandwiches at lunch in the summer. We would come over twice a week for the afternoon. I remember "Days of our Lives" coming on in the living room while we were eating. These chips were so good and should be brought back.

Jack In The Box Nachos, Comment by Rob Lambert on July 18, 2017 - Report this comment
Jack In the Box originated, and still based, in San Diego, going back to 1951. Over most of the time, Foodmaker was the parent company. Unfortunately, this chain waited forever to grow beyond southern California, with several dozen stores in Los Angeles alone. In my area, the nearest JITB is in Danville, some 100 miles from Chicago. Up until 1980, the target was families, using the clown logos. Thinking the concept was going stale, Foodmaker made drastic changes, both in menu and image. The clowns were dropped and the menu was geared more toward an adult fare. The clowns made a recent comeback at some locations. The burgers were pricier than McDonald's or the King. The nachos were popular for nearly 20 years, now gone. Found a 1985 training video for JITB, which has a lot of today in it. It features a condescending female worker and a totally inept male employee. The guy does everything to himself, like dipping his hand in hot cooking oil, chopping off a finger while prepping veggies, and slipping-falling on his back, getting whiplash (improper footwear).
Fruit Face, Comment by Ross on July 17, 2017 - Report this comment
The last time I purchased Fruit Face was in Carlisle Pa. in the early 1990's, at a flea market called Silver Springs. There was an indoor vendor with a lot of older candy... This is also the last place I could buy the flavored candy cigarettes - that were in 100's size boxes - that were flavored chocolate, mint, orange, grape and cherry. I believe they were also made by World Candy Co. These were NOT chocolate - they were candy cigarettes - long ones - just like the long ones made by Stark (which are also gone). Difference was - they were flavored and colored. Still cannot find anything close to fruit face either... They re-released tart n tiny's again - but they are not quite the same. they are OK - but not exactly what they were. I am waiting on wacky wafers - which are supposed to be out soon !!! Still need Caravelle, Butternut, Milkshake, Chocolite, Marathon (although curly wurly is close) and of course bubs daddy bubble gum...
