Doo Dads

Does anyone know what happened to Doo Dads Snack mix? I loved it when I was younger, But I can seem to find it in any store anymore.
I know it would be easier to find out this question if I could remember who made them.

    Nabisco (now a division of Kraft) made them. I used your location on the Kraft website for a location search for Doo Dads ( http://www.kraftfoods.com/main.aspx?s=product&m=product/product_locator )and came up with nothing.

    I too found them at the Kraft website and emailed asking if they are available anymore. I grew up eating them as well...sort of. I'd pick out the preztels, my brother the peanuts. We'd leave the rest for Mom. I'd like to see them available. Until then I guess it's Chex Mix.

    I love the stuff, too. Subtler, saltier spice mix compared to Chex Mix.

    I wish GF would make an "all-Chex" Chex Mix, I pick out the pretzels and other chaff, too.

    Does anyone have a good recipe for Chex Mix? I find the one on the side of the box...lacking. In the past I have had success adding extra Worchestshire, Tabasco, parsley, parmesan cheese, but no standout, gotta-write-that-down winners.

    Well, I was going to submit my mother-in-laws, but that's seems bland compared to yours. She does the butter, worcestershire and Lawrey's, that's it adn I think it's pretty darn good. I'll keep checking back for recipe submissions!

    I use more of everything than what is on the box. I use melted butter with lots of worchestershire, garlic powderand onion powder.

    Then I mix corn chex, rice chex, cheerios, kix, small pretzels and pecans and sometimes crispix.

    After tossing it in the melted mixture, i bake slowly and then whenever I am stirring the mixture occasionaly as it bakes, it sprinkle on extra wochestershire, garlic and onion powder.

    I have to be careful or I will eat too much of this stuff.

    I liked Doo Dads. But I also remember another snack-in fact I think there were some of these in the Doo Dads. They were oblong shaped sort of weiner shaped and was a baked cheese cracker.
    Does anyone remember these? They were called Cheese ______

    Yes, I think it was Cheese Tidbits. I looked in one of my grocery stores that I frequent Monday night, I'll look in another Thursday-maybe I'll find them there. No luck at the first store. Now this was one of the foods that I played with. I would break one in half lenghthwise and put around the other one and pretend that they were hot dogs. Oh, the silly things we did as children.

    Please! Let me know if you find a source for DooDads - I think about them often and wish they were available somewhere...Chex Mix, especially now that they have eliminated the peanuts from the basic varieties, is a poor substitute for DooDads!

    Sorry, but according to: http://www.nbc4.com/answerstoaskliz2003/2444141/detail.html

    Q: Why can't I find those crackers called "Cheese Tidbits" anymore?
    A: For your answer we contacted Nabisco, the company that makes Cheese Tidbits. And it says, unfortunately, the reason you cannot find them in your local grocery store is because Nabisco discontinued the product at the end of 2002. It wouldn't say why because of proprietary reasons, but it does still make "Cheese Nips", which is widely available.

    Oh heck yeah, sometimes they'd break in half, longways, on their own. And the really soaked up the worchestshire!

    Only problem with putting on more "wooster" as you bake and stir is that the mix stays gummy, never really dries out.

    Nuking in microwave is quicker, but doesn't give the same texture.

    Hey, if anyone finds out about doo-dads please let me know. I have been looking for them for about two years now. I loved those things. Chex Mix doesn't even come close.

    RE: Doo Dads 2004/12/06 15:22:30 (permalink)
    Oh my gosh, I hadn't thought about Doo Dads in ages! They were a Friday night TV watching snack with my sisters, back in the days when the Mary Tyler Moore show and Bob Newhart were on! THey were also my father's favorite "car" snack. I would love to find some.

    I did a little search and found this posted in a message board:

    "Let me tell you what happened with
    Nabisco's Doo Dads. As recently as June of this year,
    I found some at an Exxon gas station here in Houston,
    Texas, where I live. This was really interesting since
    I had not seen any since the late 90s. I remember that
    it was extremely popular when I was growing up in the
    70s, 80s, and 90s, and then as 2000 rolled around,
    they were practically nowhere to be seen. That snack
    mix has been discontinued in the U.S., I believe. It's
    a Nabisco Canada product. Anyway, sometime in the 90s,
    Nabisco came out with another product called Ritz
    Snack Mixers, which was a snack mix composed of Mini
    Ritz crackers, plain, whole wheat, and cheese
    varieties, cereal that looked like wheat Chex, and
    pretzel sticks. They came in two varieties:
    Traditional and Cheddar. The Cheddar Snack Mixers came
    with more cheese crackers and everything was coated
    with cheese powder. Anyway, Ritz Snack Mixers have
    been discontinued also, but don't worry. It only gets
    better. About a month ago, I was at the supermarket,
    and lo and behold, I see this brand new product called
    Nabisco Snack Mixers! They come in two varieties:
    Traditional and Cheddar. So what is it, you might say?
    Nabisco's Doo Dads and Ritz Snack Mixers resurrected!
    They have thrown the two snacks into one package and
    renamed it! The Cheddar variety is Doo Dads with
    Cheddar Ritz Snack Mixers, and the Traditional variety
    is Doo Dads with Traditional Ritz Snack Mixers.
    Ingenious, isn't it? Oh, and the Cheddar has Cheetos
    thrown into the mix! "

    Yes, we used to get them a long time ago. I don't know where to get them now, though.

    You can go to http://www.northwestequip.com/pictures.html and check them all out. I think they dig other things like broccoli and tomatoes. I like the scarecrow.

    Ahhhh, Doo Dads. Originally, I was only able to eat them when vacationing on the East Coast (they were never available in CA, it seemed). But I have not seen them in stores for years, quite depressing.

    I sent an E-mail to Nabisco, for whatever it's worth, maybe I'll get a decent reply about the fate of the Doo Dads.

    Honestly, they only thing that has ever come close is Nabisco's semi-new 'Mixers'. Still poor in comparison.

    I told them Doo Dads has quite a cult following :P
