Does anyone remember those little puff pastry rectangles filled with sweet whipped cream and fruit jelly? They had coarse sugar on top and were really messy to eat because the sugar, and little flakes of pastry, would get all over. Half the time the cream would squirt out the sides too. I can't remember what they were called or who made them.

I also have had the new pudding pops, they are NOT the same as they used to be!! The old ones were creamy and smooth just like puding- the new ones are artificial tasting, although remeniscent of the old ones. Why do they mess with perfection? And the bite size peanut butter granola was DELICIOUS also. I dont recall the name, but nature valley made it i'm almost sure. I recently saw bite size granola in a pouch in the supermarket, however I believe it was made by Quaker. I havent tried it yet.

Vachon Bakery (Canada) used to sell products in New England during the 70's to mid 80's- rectangle puff pastries filled with fruit and creme w/sugar crust on top called "Flakey Puffs" (Passion Flakes in Canada) and "Puff Pies"-rectangle pastry 'napoleons' with frosting on top (called "Milles Feuilles" ("1000 layers") in Canada). Vachon pulled out of the New England market in the mid 80's after being bought by a bigger company. "Drakes Cakes" sold "Pick 'M Ups" (Flakey Puff Clone) until the mid to late 90's but they too discontinued what I consider the greatest snack of all time... The FLAKEY PUFF!!

Both companies still produce a line of pudding today, only now they're in in plastic cups.

Does anyone remember a fudge-y snack cake that was coated with a layer of powdered sugar? I think they were round or oval. And I used to get them from the snack bar at one of the high schools in the city where we lived in the southwest. They were fabulous. Sweet, fudge-y and soft. But they were hard to find, even back in the day, or maybe my mom just didn't want me to have them. Anyway, she bought them a couple of times and then they just disappeared. Sometimes, I can still taste them -- the memories are so vivid-- but I don't remember what they were called or who made them. They were like ding dongs, only I know they weren't ding dongs. Individually packaged in a single serving size. And the closest thing I can find on the market now to recreate the flavor memory is a fudge-flavored pop tart. But it's not the same! This has been driving me crazy for years and I would love it if someone out there knew what I was talking about and could at least tell me what they were called and who made them. Please help!

What was the name of the Christmas cookies in the red plastic package wrapped in cellophane? They were sugar cookies with multicolored sprinkles in roundish shapes and there were 10 stacks in the package. You could see the cookies through the cellophane and they were always at the end of the aisle in the grocery stores here in SC. They were the greatest!

I don't remember anything specifically called 'Pizza O's', no, but I have a distinct memory of a Franco American canned pasta whose "gimmick" was that the sauce was PIZZA-flavored, not just plain tomato. I think THINK that it even came in little traingular pizza slice shapes, but I could be imagining all of this 100%. (Power of suggestion thru SHEILA's question??)

@Nikki "Does anyone remember a frozen dessert you could buy at the grocery store, it was marketed as kind of fancy. The commerical showed it in martini glass looking dish but it was rectangle ice cream layered with hard chocolate shell. Kinda wavy like lasanga. My mom remembers it so I know I am not crazy. I believe it came in chocolate and vanilla."- The dessert was called Vienetta! It can still be found in some parts of N.America

The difference between Skinny Dippers and Dunkaroos, is this.Dunkaroos,come with cookie sticks in shapes,on the side of the frosting which in a more Cheeze and craxkers style package,recatangular in shape,came in Chocolate with cookies and also white frosting with sprinkles with grahm sticks.Skinny Dippers were in a roundish topped can like cardboard cup shaped container. container and the long sticks within it were crackers,Long brownish thin crackers,that you dunked into frosting.The frosting was in a plastic brown area at the top of the container,and hung only partially way down into the whole can area,but the crackers were longer and took up the entire space.Skinny dippers came in chocolate and strawberry for certain, maybe vanilla too.And the craxkers were the same I believe in them all.Also the Nerds cereal had two flavors of Red and Orange cereals, in two separate bag areas within the boxes.They were very much set up like the candy was,separate sides,and nerds candy IS still on the market.The cereal is a thing of the past, but it was very sweet and good as I recall.

It was beautiful. But that night my mom had snacks for everyone. One was the Teddy Grahams and one was a cracker or cookie shaped like a footprint. It sticks in my mind because we all thought it was so funny. I want to say it was vanilla or cinnamon flavored. They were brand new and lasted only a short while in stores.

The wax juice things are much older than the 80s-- my mother told me they were around when she was a child in the 40s and 50s. I can't seem to remember any brand name for them, though-- I think several companies marketed them under different names, and with different shapes (e.g. the ones I remember were shaped like candy sticks, but I've also seen them shaped like bottles). And chewing on the wax afterwards was definitely half the fun.

The fruit sections were fairly dark in color (I guess they were made with natural ingredients) It had a strip of cream in the middle as well. I've been searching for this for a while and have come across other things in my search that just aren't it. Everything I've found has shown me things that are layered in a stacked style (like, sandwiched).

To be clear... the ones some of us are referring to, do NOT have nougat centers.(Granola Clusters) They do NOT have peanut butter centers.(Boppers) These are different products from what I am referring to. What WAS in the center of the granola bar/log was ICING. Not unlike an Oreo center in consistancy. They came with either chocolate or vanilla icing centers, but no coating on the outside. Just chewy granola and I clearly remember having a hard time choosing a favorite between the two flavors because whichever one I was eating at that moment seemed the best. Something like the name "Rollos" comes to mind, but it doesn't come up in a search so I guess that ain't it.

I am trying to think of the name of those pop tart-like pasteries that you put in the toaster that were cinnamon and was like 2 pieces of twisted dough- man those were good. Also do you remember Monster Chomp cookies - each flavor had its own monster on the package and every cookie had a 'bite' taken out supposedly by a monster hehe! My fave snack ever to be discontinued was the super delicious Doritos cracker-crisps - I loved the cool ranch ones even better than the original Doritos.

There were these microwaveable cupcakes that would come in individual cups. The cups were shaped like either mickey or minnie mouse's head. You'd add water then pop in the microwave. Then add the frosting that was in a packet. Does anyone remember these?

In the early 80's I had a microwave cookbook that had a recipe for a breakfast muffin that was very simple to make and had oatmeal in in. Just before putting it in the microwave, you put a small well in them and added brown sugar. I have lost my cookbook and can't remember the name of it.

To the person who said they remembered Push-Ups with a Flintstones theme, I remember them too.

The cookies were sort of "flower petal" shaped, with a hole in the center. I found a brand that was essentially the same thing in the mid 90s, then I haven't seen anything since. Another of Burry's cookies from that era, "Gauchos", are nearly replicated by the Girl Scout cookie called "Do Si Dos"

Does anyone remember the small box of cookies, similar to animal crackers but that were in the shape of babies faces, strollers, bibs, booties? I think the box was green and like I saim similar in size to the small "purse" box of animal crackers. I have a baby shower to host and would love these as party favors, but I cannot find them anywhere. We used to get them at Prairie Market if that makes a difference. Thank you!

As a kid in the 80s I remember having a processed cheese spread that came in a (I believe) red sausage looking tube with a small cap on the side that when removed you could squeeze the cheese out. I only remember it being just like Cheese Whiz, but it was a special treat for us. If anybody out there remembers what this was, I sure would appreciate it! Thank you!!

I remember in the late 80s and early 90s there was a brand of frozen yogurt bars. The only flavour I remember was strawberry but there may have been others. They were the flatter style popsicles and had big chunks of strawberry in them. So much better than today's "real fruit" bars... they came wrapped in white paper with pink dots or dainty little flowers or maybe even polka dots. All I remember is that they had some small little pink design on the white wrapper and box. They were sold at the convenience store around my childhood neighbourhood near Toronto Ontario. I remember once my mom bought a box of 4 at the grocery store and they were pricey... please if anyone remembers let me know!

Hey Tisha, It was the blowpop and they had the commercial in the '70s with the owl. They'd say, "How many licks does it take to get to the middle of a blowpop." Great candy we all liked and enjoyed.

Jimmy - May 11, 2008 - Report this comment I remember these little round watermelon candies that looked like..well, watermelons. They were deep green on the outside and red on the inside. Not sour, kind of chewy. Anyone got a name for them? They're not watermelon jelly bellies, like another commenter suggested. They were a Ferrara Pan (now Ferrara Candy Co.) product, analogous to its Johnny Appleseed, Alexander the Grape, and Lemonhead products. They all originally came in little cardboard boxes with seemed like retro ('60s-ish?) graphics to me when I was eating (and loving) them in the mid '80s. Ferrara Candy Co still makes the Lemonheads, and for awhile (between when the watermelon, apple, and grape candies were discontinued and just a year or two ago) the products 'Appleheads' and 'Cherryheads,' and maybe more (but no 'Watermelonheads). The Appleheads and Cherryheads are apparently still available commercially but again are not mentioned on the FCC web site, which could spell their impending doom. But I have no idea if the Appleheads would be exactly the same as the Johnny Apple Seed product, and I don't remember a cherry product in the original line-up. I *really* miss the watermelon and grape flavors, and the original apple. Maybe I'll buy some 'Appleheads' to see how close they are to the real deal before I lose the chance forever...

I would kill (not literally, but you know what I mean) for some Tangy Taffy right now.

I had my doubts, and I'm not even sure that *that* product exists anymore to be tested (I mean, the Tangy Taffy-like Laffy Taffy, not Laffy Taffy in general).

SZA, thanks again. I believe your tip led me to the answer. On the Mentos Wikipedia page, they talk about a similar candy that Mentos fans call the "anti-mentos" lol. I believe what I'm craving was simply called Fruit Chews, and later, Fruit Chewz, which were manufactured by Lance, Inc. I saw their trademark and it seemed to ring a bell. However, there's no pic of the actual packaging anywhere so I can't be sure. Unfortunately, it seems to be discontinued. :(((((( Oh well, I'll have to give fruit flavored Mentos a try.

For many years now, I have been longing to rediscover my favourite chips from the 1980's. They were called 'Bacon Rings'. They came in a dark blue bag, with an illustration of bacon rings tumbling down. I think the 'o' in the word may have been of a bacon ring also. The chips themselves had a very distinctive bacon taste. They were very thin rings and were pale yellow in colour. They had a texture and taste similar to chips made on tapioca flour. Perhaps they were???? I have searched and searched for any information on these chips, but to no avail. I would be delighted if I could even find someone else who remembered these childhood favourite. I am from Australia, so I am not sure if they were available in America, Canada, England and other countries.
