I've been trying to remember the name of this pudding forever! Oh my was so good!! I miss it. I'm even tempted to buy the big cans sometimes that they sell at the grocery store(I don't but I think maybe they'll taste as good as the little cans). Tin pudding is sooo much better than plastic.

Oh, I loved the Snack Pack pudding in the little can!! The pudding today just does not taste the same. I agree with Ansie, I have wanted to buy the pudding in the big cans to see if it taste the same. :>)

lets threaten the manufacturer (hunts-i believe)with a boycott of all thier products if they dont bring them back-I LOVED THEM!!! we could tell the press that the plastic pudding cups are not dolphin friendly and that the cans are at least recyclable but the plastic will never brake down-leaving the landfills overflowing with waste for our grandchildren to enjoy.the tree hugging bastards will fall for it in a second.NOSTALGIA-GEEKS UNITE! DYSLEXICS UNTIE!

Wife just bought some in the plastic. Blah! I remember when I was 8yrs old i had a friend who kept tons of it in cans above fridge in basement. I use to sneak down and steal one every now and then. I would carefully lick the lid and entire Inside of can. My mom would not spend money on junk food so I had to steal to get my fix. Lol

Thank god I found this! I thought I was the only one with fond memories of eating pudding out of a little can. I could never figure out what brand it was. I thought it had a little devil on it.

I loved snack pack, and no they don't taste the same, neither do tasty cake or hostess cakes. I recently bought Dannon Creamery vanilla and chocolate pudding and I think they taste very similar to snack pack, not exact but when I tasted them, snack pack was the first thing that came to my mind. So for those who loved snack pack give them a try.

Snack Pack was introduced by Hunt-Wesson in 1968. The first TV ads featured a talking palomino horse, a rip on Mr. Ed. Horse sounded more like Disney's Goofy. Found the first ad, with the horse calling on a mother and two kids in their house. The horse assures the mother that the pull-ring is safe (won't cut finger), and warns the kids not to lick pudding from lid (sharp edge). This aired on "My 3 Sons" over CBS (4/19/68). Snack Pack originally was sold in four-can packs. Early 1980s, switched to cheaper means of packaging.

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, Snack Pack the horse visits a picnic deprived of the great pudding. The attendees, first bored, get all excited. The horse still talks, but only to kids. This aired on "Spider Man" over ABC (5/11/68). At the peak of the TV superhero craze, Stan Lee first cranked out the syndicated "Marvel Super Heroes" show (with Hulk and them) in 1966. Then, "Spider Man" and "Fantastic Four" (NBC) in 1967. Lee purposely limited the animation frames on each cartoon, making them seem like comic books.

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, Snack Pack the horse arrives in time to save a boring kiddie birthday party from going nowhere. The horse reminds kids not to lick or play with the lid when removed. TV spot aired during "Go-Go Gophers" on CBS (9/28/68). General Mills cereals and Ideal Toys were other sponsors. Network promos for "Bugs Bunny-Road Runner Hour," plus "Wacky Races" and "Archie" cartoon show. While now politically incorrect, "Go-Go Gophers" depicted two Native Americans: The Chief and Ruffled Feather, who spoke no coherent English. The starving braves mooched off of the nearby Cavalry fort commanded by Col. Kit Coyote (Kenny Delmar), assisted by the Sergeant. Sandy Becker voiced Sergeant and the Chief, plus sung the opening theme. Allen Swift voiced Ruffled Feather. Rerun cartoons of "Klondike Cat" and "King Leonardo" filled the show, which was the last by Total Television.
