Thanks for posting the link. You are right, there isn't anything on the menu that fits the description of items I remember from the 60's.

    Well, at least they still have the clam strips, which I remember from the seventies...while they are not clam bellies in terms of taste, I have pretty good memories of enjoying a Friday evening all you care to eat experience more than once...

      Yeah, The 3D is one I recall...2 2oz burger patties with the middle bread layer in the roll. The thing that made it better than any Big Mac I ever had was the sauce. A 1000 island type with additional relish added No veggies on this one...It was the Ultimate double Cheeseburger of the day.

      The reason I know the weight was that HoJo had 3 sizes... the 2 oz was for use in 3D's, the 3 oz was for regular burgers, and the 4 oz for the 1/4lber. Man that's a lot for this old brain to drag out of the recall file.

They were sold frozen, in with the waffles. Boy, were they delicous. Six to a pack, and the pack never made it two days,they were too good.

        OMG! I love the blue berry toasties from the restaurant. I never knew you could buy them frozen.

          this controversy is being discussed in the Forums section.

          I for one, think large chains should have their own forum. And moderators can decide if the chain being discussed is a type that needs to be in this forum, or, like Dinosaur BBQ, which has three locations, but is owned the same persons and run locally, would remain in the BBQ section.
