I can't remember what they were called. They were these little tablets you dropped into water and they fizzed. Are they still around?

Bring back the original jello pudding pops-yum! They came out w/ a substitute version by fudgesicle(i think) in recent years, but they are not like the original.

I also remember a different (better) version of s'mores cereal which was like Golden Grahams w cocoa coating & mini marshmallows.

I was coming on to say I miss pudding pops!! I still look for them once in a while, hopeful of a comeback. Maybe we should send a copy of this thread to Jello, to encourage them to reintroduce PP. Or maybe we should just write to Bill!

I also miss Marathon candy bars. They were caramel braids with chocolate covering. Yum!

BabyB, thanks for bringing up the little fizzy tablets! I was instantly transported to the early 60s. They were called Fizzies. I never thought they tasted good, but it sure was cool to see them fizz.

On a candy-related note, does anyone remember Incredible Edibles? They were candies that you sort of baked in some special device that came with the metal candy molds, in the shapes of bugs. There were all kinds of artificial flavors, w/tons of food coloring. Loved those! Man, I am showing my age here.

This might actually still be around, but there was a cereal called cookie crisp out when I was a child in the mid to late 70's. It basically consisted of minature chocolate chip cookies that you put in a bowl with milk.

I get it for my DS sometimes (it's not his favorite, but he does like it). Sometimes I eat a few as a snack.

L84 - I am glad someone else remembers them. They were long and were packaged in red, if I recall correctly.

I think you can still find these if you look hard enough, but what about the.... darn - I cannot think of the name of them, it just slipped my mind. They were lollipops, but thick (not large, really, just thick). They might even have been Charms, but not the ones with bubblegum inside. They were kind of square-shaped. Anyone know what I am talking about?

I would say Whatchmacallit because I didn't see it for years. Until about 2 years ago and now they have popped back up.

BTW, I loved pudding pops!! I liked how it was icy on the outside until you bit into or let it melt and then it was so soft and creamy!!

Marathon Bars! I loved those too! Remember the Marathon Bar guy who was a cowboy and would whip that Marathon Bar out of his holster?

Tammy, there were really thick Charms lollipops. I liked those too!

in the red box that was sold with the chocolate bars. We used to smash the box on the table and then eat all of the small pieces. It was really hard on your teeth. They just have the small candies now and they are softer.

It's really hard to find peanut butter Twix around here. My friend found one last year and it just didn't taste the same. I think I built up the taste in my mind because I couldn't have one for so long.

I remember the Incredible Edibles. They really didn't taste that great, but we loved them anyway because they were fun.
I remember they used to have candy cigarettes and bubble gum cigars. I don't think they make those anymore, but that's a good thing.
I remember a diet soda called Tab. I don't think they make that anymore.

I saw Quisp at Target not too long ago! I thought it was just some new cereal but I chuckled to myself because I thought the name was clever. I don't know if that was just a temporary thing or not, but I definitely saw it.

I remember some cereal called Zax - they were stackable. I remember I loved them but that's all.

Man, I've never heard of most of these things!

My contribution is the candy Bottle Caps. Maybe they still make those but just don't sell them here. I loved them when I was in either jr. high or high school, except when they added the cherry flavor - I hated that one.

Linda, I remember the candy cigarettes and the candy cigars. My cousin and I used to get the candy cigarettes and pretend we were smoking, just like our parents did. Isn't that awful?

I can remember clearly the last time we did that, at the drugstore lunch counter. The look on my mom's face let me know she was horrified at seeing us pretend to smoke. That was the last time I ever got to have those candy cigarettes.

My first thought was Marathon Bars! I also loved Koogle, Space Food Stix, and whenever there was a grad party, Communion party, or other event, we'd get these little 6 oz bottles of pop called O-So's. The best flavor was the creme soda. If you're from the Cleveland area and are over 45, you know all about O-So's.

I preferred the Jello pops as opposed to the pudding pops. I wish those were still around!

Not a marathon bar, but I found this:

The commercial is even on that page at the bottom!

I may need to give the curly wurly a try.

They still have candy cigarettes? With all the flack about smoking in public, how bad it is for you and those around you, I cannot believe they still make those things, YUK!

I loved the potato sticks too and haven't seen them in ages. I used to also love the this chocolate drink called Chocolate Soldier. Not sure I'd like it now, but I sure did love it when I was a kid!

The ones I miss are Wacky Waffers, and the taffy that was in a white package with a picture of red cherries on them. I can't remember the name, but I think that Laffy Taffy took the over the company that made it. Also, Slow Pokes were another favorite.


edit: I remember what the taffy was called! Tangy Taffy. They don't make anything even close to this now a days.

Things or Pink Things- they were a red ice cream on a stick served at the Six Flags Amusement Park in Arlington Texas. Probably in the 1960's. Yum!

An ice cream cake roll- it was shaped like a jelly roll and made with chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream. It was around in the 60's and 70's. Delicious!

Orange Sorbet or Sherbet Push Ups- again an ice cream treat that you pushed up out of a cardboard tube as you ate it. It was the perfect way to cool off on a hot summer day in Texas. Wish I had one right now.

Whatever, happened to ice cream trucks? Would love to hear those musical notes again. I'd grab some $ and run out the front door to choose my next icy sensation.

Yes, they do make them. I have a box sitting on my counter right now. We were talking about them and other candy at lunch a few weeks ago. One of the teachers on my team saw them at a local meat market and bought us each a box (just to make us smile). Thankfully all of us enjoyed them as children and don't smoke as adults.

Lots of ice cream trucks around here still. They are actually new for me since where I grew up we didn't have them.

We just called those wax bottles "wax Coke bottles."

I used to love an ice cream sandwich called a Creamy Burger.

I miss pudding pops also, along with Quisp cereal. I also remember the wax pop bottles, wax lips, and some kind of candy that was shaped like a flying saucer with little sugary balls inside. What about the long ropes of bubble gum, my mom hated when we chewed the sour apple or grape- she couldn't stand the smell of either!

Boo-Berry cereal! Every now and then it pops up again, but I loved it as a child. I also loved Tangy Taffy and Pudding Pops - they used to sell them at the movie theater.

I think I remeber that Grins, Smiles, Giggles, and Laughs cereal. I do remember Quisp - that was good! And Space Sticks, too! But now that I think about it, I guess they weren't that good - but why did I like them so much as a kid?

And the original Pudding Pops were the best. I miss Choco-Lite candy bars. Anyone remember that one? It was a light, bubbly-crispy chocolate bar, covered in milk chocolate. It was so yummy! And lime flavor Starburst! Why did they stop making those? That was my favorite flavor!

I remember Marathon Bars - those were one of my favorites!

Do they still make Fruit Stripe gum? I loved that as a kid. And that teeny tiny Chicklets gum.

I just thought of something else - Party Pizzas (I think that was the name). They were tiny little pizzas about 1 1/2 inches in diameter, that came in about three varieties on one silver cooking tray.(Different from the Bagel Bite pizzas). I think they were made by Jeno's. We used to make them for slumber parties.

Back in the 70's and early 80's there was a seasoning packet in a box that you mixed with tuna and mayo. It was called Tuna Twist. It was a bunch of spices and herbs. I loved tuna sandwiches and have not been able to replicate the taste. Anyone remember this product?

I remember Freakies cereal!
I also remember Tangy Taffy. I remember being on vacation in MI and stretching it out from my mouth and finding my tooth in it!

Does anyone remember...I think they were called Wacky Packages? They came like baseball cards. They had awful gum in them, but they had stickers or trading cards that were take-offs on regular store items?

I see candy smokes in Japan and places in Europe. The one store at the mall here has lots of import old foods from the USA.

I liked that Chef Boyardee pizza kit in a box and the Kraft Mac and Cheese powder.




Most of the above that has been listed you can buy still

Oh yes on the Marathon bars!! - and did anyone else freeze them?

I remember Quisp, too, and the square Charms pops without the gum.

And the bakery where I lived as a kid made huge half-moon cookies - the cookie part was chocolate, and they had chocolate frosting on one side and vanilla on the other.

I loved Marathon bars and Koogle...banana!


Ok, ANYONE else remember a Go Banana bar? It was a long thin strip of banana taffy and the center was chocolate cream. Can you tell I love banana? No one ever remembers these and I LOVED them!!!

I also miss ICEcubes chocolate squares, although once and awhile I find them pop up.

You can find Devil Dogs and Potato Sticks in any grocery store around here. But do they still make Suzy Q's?

Any one remember the candy bar Peanut Butter but no Jelly? I loved that! Watchamacallit was a fave as well.

Tab was an awful diet soda. It had such an aftertaste. I remember my great aunt drinking it all the time. I think I saw it in the stores recently and thought "why"?

Loved Bottle Caps and those little candy dots on a piece of long paper that you'd rip off and get half the paper with it! yum!

Pudding Pops!

I also miss Magic Middles- basically a sugary type cookie with gooey fudge in the middle. Milano Melts are very similar.

My mom used to buy me these cookies in the 80s. I thinkthey were Chips Ahoy. They were chocolate chip, with a chocolate coating on the bottom, and chocolate stripes drizzled on the top. No hole in the middle like those EL Fudge cookies. Anways, my mom would stick these cookies in the fridge. They were sooooo good. I miss them.

I loved OJ's cereal. It was around for a few years in the mid-eighties. I also miss the Pudding Pops!

I know they still make them, but they are hard to find:
Mother's Sugar Wafers

Gone are Hydrox cookies (Keebler bought out Sunshine cookies, changed the name to Droxies and changed the taste).

but most of those candies are still available in candy shops. We visit Mr. Bulky's--unknown if it is regional or nationwide--but a lot of those candies are there. I used to love a Rocky Road marshmallow bar that quit selling in most stores and gas stations but it still sells there.

Oh, that layered jello was called 1-2-3 http://blog.tiffanybroadbent.com/200...e-layer-jello/

Only a couple of times did my mom buy me my own candy bar and my favorite was the Seven Up: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jasonli...ff/5642716228/ (scroll down). It had seven different fillings in it.

And, we all liked Danish Go Rounds: http://disneybear.com/2008/08/18/kel...ish-go-rounds/
