This isn't really a 'food' per se, but it was the shiz-nit. Back in the late 80's-early 90's they released a chewing gum based on soda. It was like FRESHEN UP GUM, they were square pieces with "gel" in the Center, the flavors were 7-UP, Dr Pepper, Coke, and Cherry Coke, the gum had the flavor and the gel was like concentrated Soda Syrup, they were amazing. Whatever happened to the NESTLE ALPINE WHITE BARS? The only thing like that now is the Nestle Crunch White Edition, but those are hard to find and I'm not a big fan of the crispies in the white chocolate. Not the same. Also in the 80's they had Pizza Toasters, it was a round Hot Pocket type thing that you would put in your toaster and it had sauce and cheese like a pizza. One final thing, SNAPPLE SAMOAN SPLASH, my all time fave drink, discontinued. Stupid companies taking away my stuff!

Hiya Bo-

Seven Seas makes Green Goddess dressing. I bought some a couple of months ago. Would you like me to send you some?

I got about 5 free OEP Frozen Chimichangas 2 weeks ago with coupons. I'd offer to send them too, but I don't think they'd arrive very well.

Yes! Oh God, yes. If these are the things that look like beige packing popcorn, crispy on the outside, peanut buttery on the inside, you SO have a deal, PFG. I'll send you the finest bagels H&H has to offer, Girl.

A friend now makes it with parsley in the food processor, so I'm set. But thanks for the offer, Moonvine. Awfully sweet of you.

American Beauty sells dry spaghetti that is two or three times the normal length, but nobody ever carries it. I swear I gonna just make my own.

Lay's makes a ketchup potato chip that is sold in Canada, but not in the US. If I could get them to market them here.

Fast Food: Another Vote for Burger Chef and Kenny Roasters.

McDonalds is always test marketing things here, and then they go away. I'm not sure if any of these made it to the national market, but I can't wait for another release of: McRib, McPizza, the Arch Deluxe, the Spanish Bagel Omelette, and McJordan Special, and the Just Add Bacon for 50c promotion.
All of the supermarkets here in Seattle carry American Beauty Pasta.
McRibs have always been my only reason for going to Mickey D's!

Outside Morristown where I grew up, we would go with my mother every few weeks to a liquor store in Madison with our cases of empty bottles. Mom would tell us how many cases she was buying, and my sisters and I would pick the bottles off the shelf and fill the cases with the flavors we wanted - cola, root beer, birch beer, sarsaparilla, and orange for us kids, and club soda and ginger ale for my folks.

Then the store clerk would carry the cases out for us and put them in the trunk of Mom's '59 Plymouth.

As we finished the bottles of soda, we'd put the empties back in the cases. And when we were all out of soda, it was time for another trip to the liquor store in Madison.

We stopped getting Brookdale Soda when Shop-Rite started selling cans of their store-brand soda for 9 cents each. Then we had an old refrigerator on the back porch that we kept filled with cans of Shop-Rite soda.
I grew up in Northern NJ where we had Penguin Soda. I can still remember opening the cans with a can opener and the transition to pull-tabs.

We also had delivery to our homes from Charles Chips. They'd deliver these huge cans of potatoe chips or pretzels or popcorn. You paid a deposit on the can and turn the empty one in when you got your next order.

Jamie, lol... I found your peppermint air candy. BB, please walk into any Duane Reade and verify this, would you? They're in the bulk candy bags 2/$3.00.
They're puffy and round. Then they have these hardish peppermint stripes? I've never had them. But if you'd like me to pick up a few, Jamie... I will.
Maybe they're not it... but I think they might be!

Thanks, Allie, but no deal there... they do have older varieties that don't have the current "new" bag for the remaining flavors, but not mine.

Yeah, yeah, that's them! I haven't actively looked for them, as they're not a treat I'm into, but I KNOW I see them here. I think maybe it's a little bit of a New England thing, lots of blue hairs looking for those and their ribbon candy around Christmas time! lol

I feel a little apprehensive about adding this after the recent assault on candy corn on this board, but i thought those Reese's Peanut Butter Cups made with extra crunchy peanut butter were a great idea.

If you put em in the fridge for a day, they were INCREDIBLE.

I don't mind if you disagree but if you do, please try to be gentler about your disagreement than you were about candy corn.
That hurt.

From what I can gather, they stopped making it in the Late '60s.

Hi-C Ecto Cooler. That stuff tasted really good and Slimer was even on the package. I also miss Fruit Brute cereal. Oh yeah and Freakies! That always came with a toy surprise.

I love Doo-Dads! I think they still make it, though--I can get it in my area. When I make homemade Chex mix and try to approximate Doo-Dads, I have a problem finding a box of the oblong cheese cracker bullet thingies that they put in Doo-Dads. Who the heck manufactures those?

I'm with you on the melba stuff. It's hell on the teeth, and part of the reason I don't care for that snack mix that has an Italian-sounding name--starts with a G.

Orbitz soda:
Anybody remember? It was non-carbonated clear fruit flavored soda in a clear glass bottle that was full of these little "candy" bits floating around in it. The soda and candy were formulated so that the candy just sat suspended there and never sank. Some were yellow, blue, white, and red I think. The consistency of the candy bits was like caviar. Which icked most people out to the max because they would burst in your mouth. I admit, it icked me out too to have those candy caviar thingies burst against the roof of my mouth, but it was a really cool concept.

Pepsi Clear:
Clear Pepsi that tasted like cola, and was sold in a clear plastic pop top can. I remember this very briefly from one of the summers of my early teenage years. Very early-mid 1980's. There was also a clear Pepsi that tasted like citrus, but this was different.

Josta Cola:
The more accessible alternative to Jolt. Had an overly sweet tropical flavor to it. Supposedly contained caffeine like botanicals and the rumor was that it was also an aphrodisiac. All it did was make you jittery and fuzzy headed from all the sugar and stimulant.
