Here are some of mine I am sure to think of more later:
Willy Wonka Scrunch bar, it was kind of like a 5th Ave bar, but way better.
Willy Wonka Oompas – the original ones that were like M&M’s - they were filled with chocolate and peanut butter.
The ORIGINAL Plain M&M’s - they changed the chocolate in the 90’s – I REALLY miss them.
Taco flavor Doritos.
Pizza Spins. I really miss those.
Coca-Cola and ALL sodas in returnable GLASS bottles made with real SUGAR not High Fructose corn syrup – I have to pay two dollars for a Mexican coke in Seattle, if I can even find one and there still are not as good as I recall.
Nabisco Chocolate Snaps. I gave up looking for them.
Mothers brand angel food chocolate chip cookies.
The original "Sports Shake" drink made my Mid America farms,it was available in chocolate,vanilla or strawberry - it was super rich. But they changed the product to make it lower in fat awhile back and now it is not at all the same.
McDonalds FRIED hot apple pie – they bake them now and they are not nearly as good.
Chocolate Ovaltine from Chicago – The mix used to look like coffee crystals, and was a totally different product from what is sold as Ovaltine now. I used to be able to get the original kind that was made in England, but I heard they are not making it anymore. I have found some from Thailand, but it is not quite the same.
PDQ – made by Ovaltine from Chicago.
Chef Boyardee’s cheese ravioli in a can – a great comfort food from my childhood – I can’t find it anywhere anymore.
Delaware punch. I have seen that you can get the concentrate for it out of Mexico.
The original Corn Nuts, if you want to know how they used to be, click here: http://www.inkacrops.com/snacks/info_box/inkacorn_4oz.htm
Bosco syrup, still made, but not sold in my area.
TEAM Flakes cereal, made by General Mills.
Iranian pistachios. I get Turkish ones from Zenobia, but the Iranian ones are the best.
Russell Stover french milk chocolate bar.
