Screaming Yellow Zonkers - No Longer Being Made???

I noticed lately, that I could not find them at my local store and did a google search; found that they are no longer being made! After a bit of research, I found out that the parent company - Lincoln snacks - was bought out by Con Agra! Yet another buy - out by a conglomerate of a great food product. Every time one of the big corporations acquires a brand, they inevitably ruin it. This sucks!

They were my favorite.

    Screaming Yellow Zonkers were always my favorite.
    I, too, lament the fact of their demise.
    All good things must come to an end?

    Dearfolk,
    This stuff was great hippie-college-student fare circa 1971. I found them in an independent store as little as a few months ago, but since I cannot eat sugar in any quantity, I eschewed them. Alas.
    Sigh. I suddenly feel nostalgic.
    Uncrunchingly, Ort. Carlton in Snack On This Athens, Georgia.

    I, too, found them in a Dollar Store a couple of years ago and bought a box. They were so sweet I couldn't eat them - I took the box to work and it was gone within minutes.
    Somehow, to me they just didn't taste the same as years ago.
