dunno if this counts, but Trader Joe's used to carry a toffee nut popcorn snack called "Rosencrunch and Guildenpop". I bought it because of the cute Shakespearean name, but I kept buying it because it was sooo yummy. and now it's gone

I am a Trader Joe's fanatic and I remember this...God, I miss Trader Joe's. Now I remember something in particular from TJ's that I miss: Their tropical fruit pops. Soooo good on a hot summer's day. Not that I remember what that's like, now living in England. I'm lucky I remember what the sun looks like.

TFG, our pizzas are very different (and part of me, having seen the pix, thinks maybe you could make that at home with some experimentation?), but I feel you. Pizza is unique to the region and it just doesn't translate well.
Papa Del's was so good! I miss Garcia's slices too. And the Tollhouse Pie that the U of I cafeterias used to have, OH MY LORD, so good. I worked in the caf and we used to hide a couple of pies and the workers would feast after hours.

Other things I miss:

Chef BoyArDee spaghetti sauce. It was crap in a can with fake meat, but it was comfort food.

Date Bars. From Betty Crocker, I think. They don't make the mix anymore. I found a recipe, but it's just not the same.

I can't think of anything else at the moment.

Another unknown wonder was the Chef BoyArDee Pizza Kit. The sauce I didn't really care for, but the mix for the dough is one of the best to behold anywhere. Makes a wonderful thin crisp crust.

Edited to Add: I've found the spaghetti sauce online.. You've convinced me enough to give it a try.. if I can get a can or three.

Was it the "crap in a can" or "fake meat" that won you over?

You're gonna gag, the stuff is just horrific, but my mom used to fix it for us kids when we were on a tight budget. So it just brings back memories. Gotta have it with Kraft Parmesan cheese in the green can. something about the sandy texture that makes it better.......

Seriously, I got scared for a minute. I'm back home for Christmas and my first stop was to Ole' RL to pick up a dozen of those bad boys for muchin before heading to mom's house.

Glad to know they are still there.

I just got reminded of this: Carmine's Restaurant in New York City (And Washington, D.C.)

The veal cutlet combo hero....succulent pieces of veal, paired with fried eggplant, crispy proscuitto, mozzarella cheese and covered with Carmine's red sauce...it was literally sex on a plate, and big enough to share with at least two people.

*drool*

That's the first thing I will hit when I go back home for Christmas!

Me too. These might still be available, but I would never buy them because I have no control over myself with sweet cereals. I miss Quisp, King Vitamin, Booberry, and both Fruity & Coco Pebbles.

There was a local restaurant when I was a kid that had THE BEST soft tacos.. ever... I dunno what it was that was in their sauce, but they tasted like pure, spicy magic. The restaurant is closed now, so even if I do visit the area again at some point... I'll never have one of those tacos again.

*sigh*

They were amazing.

I don't remember Pizza in a Cup. Was it a soup? I just remember those delicious rectangular slices and that a football game wasn't complete without a sighting of the "Flying Tomato" (The ORIGINAL hot air balloon- not some redheaded skater).

I lived in FAR for 3 years, so I worked there. Worked at ISR and Busey-Evans my senior year. Graduated in 85. You?

The 12 boys (high school age) wanted to "carbo-load" before the big event. After they had been there a few hours, the manager came out and told them that they had to leave because the restaurant was out of food. The boys had eaten all the shrimp, pizza, pasta and salad that the place had available for that night. I think that's why they went out of business. I still blame my brother, who's 42 now.

Doughnuts. Where have all the good doughnuts gone? My state doesn't even have Krispy Kreme anymore.

All we can really get are the boxed doughnuts at the grocery stores or the doughnuts at the gas stations.

I want a good doughnut.

Like Bill Clinton, I feel your pain. I also know -- and you do, too -- that there is only one true and worthwhile answer to the problem: you need to get a deep fryer and make your own. I have only had homemade doughnuts once in my life: a former girlfriend made them for me once, and I have never forgotten them (or her). They were transcendent. Since you can tell the good from the mediocre, you owe it to yourself to learn to make doughnuts ... good ones.
