I've recently seen Archway's Chocolate Chip Icebox Cookies in a grocery store in my area of southeastern PA, but I can't remember where. And I found them at Amazon.com after searching:

    In the early 70's, there was a box of cupcakes with strawberry, chocolate and vanilla icing in the local Brooklyn "Royal Farms" supermarket chain store. It may have been Sarah Lee, IIRC (but it wasn't frozen/refrigerated). These were good, and very unique tasting. Seemed so common back then, but when I was older, I looked up and they were gone for good, and Sarah Lee looked like the brand it was.

            Dipsy Doodle Corn chips are still around, I just had a snack size bag on my way home from work

            And if you're feeling the jones for a old McDonald's fried apple pie, Taco Bell has fried caramel apple empanadas. The crust isn't as bubbly crisp as the old fried pies were, but when I first tried one, the old McD's fried pie sensation came over me.

            Funny Bones are still available, had some a couple months ago.

            Add me to the list of folks who wish Doo Dads would make a comeback.

The rolls were maybe twice the length of regular LifeSavers rolls, and the cherry package had photographs of cherries on it, and likewise the lemon. I bought a package of each kind, and LOVED them. They had a different flavor - not the sugary sweet of the regular 5-fruit LifeSavers, and not the extreme, face-twisting sour commonly found today. I have never seen these varieties of LifeSavers again, even at that same store, which has long since gone out of business. But if I could I would buy several cases of each.


                When I lived in Hawaii in the late 60's there were also some foreign (English maybe) Sour Hard candies called Royals or Crown Royals(?) that were very sour but very good and I haven't been able to find those since.

                I also remember a foreign Cadbury candy bar that was similar to a Twix, but the cookie they used was a shortbread variation and very good.

                Didn't Twix originally have 4 flavors?

                    www.nationwidecandy.com


                    http://www.oldtimecandy.com/zero.htm

                    you can find Zero bars there to order

                    Anyone in the Minnesota area does anyone know of a bakery that makes a peanut cupcake? It has crushed peanuts and sugar on the outside of a yellow cupcake. I'd like the name of the bakery so I can order some.

                      hello agin,
                      I have to say the lat website I posted has a ton of old time candy. If you loved Marathon bars then try the "Curly Wurly" Also I noticed there are a lot of post for Chocolite bars well if you have a british store near you or a market with an imported section like "Stop & Shop" here in the Northeast they have a Areo bar made by Nestles Company in the UK taste and texture just like Chocolite! I hope im helping some of you because I'm yearning for a candy bar! I only allow myself a treat once a week since I run a lot to stay in shape and the same dress size as high school!

                        Dinerlover, you are my hero! I just ordered some of the Archway Chocolate Chipp Icebox ccokies from the Amazon link you provided.

                        I can't wait .. I have been dreaming about these for years! Thank you so much!

                          That's great, BunnySlippers-- I'm glad I could help and I hope they'll be as delicious as you remember them!

                          I was grocery shopping at a local Redner's Warehouse yesterday and saw Archway's Icebox Chocolate Chip cookies on a rack and almost bought a package. Next time I will!

                            Drooling at the thoughts of fudgies coming back! That is actually how I found this forum. I did a search for Fudgies.
                            I laughed when I saw wax harmonicas. I totally forgot about them , but u brought back memories. What fun!

                                Does anyone remember a fruit punch soda pop called fruit bowl. My brothers and I used to drink it all the time growing up in CA in the 60's.

                                  anybody remember a puffed snack with pesto flavor? back in college in NY in the late 80's early 90's, I could kill a bag in a sitting, maybe a couple of Saranacs to wash 'em down. they were made to resemble pasta and had an addictive garlic/cheese/dried herb coating.

                                    Are you referring to "teenage mutant ninja turtle pizza snacks" AKA pizza spins? There is a thread about them in this forum: http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=5974

                                      Sara Lee banana cake with the banana frosting, a bar cake in the frozen foods section. My husband and I both remember them as favorites. I can still taste it.

                                        I've found that if one is able to get to Canada, the Kit Kats and other chocolates there are similar to the English recipes. Yummies in Kittery Maine does mail order and has lots of old time candy. They have wax lips and teeth but I didn't see the harmonicas the last time I was there.
                                        Anyone know where I can get Chicago style (side split, poppy seed) hot dog rolls in the Boston area? I'd like to try them.

                                          I'm not gonna list the stuff you guys listed that is still sold. A good 60-80% of that stuff is still on the market and hasn't gone anywhere.

                                          However, here's what I miss and cannot find any information on. I also can't seem to find many people who know about this: Uncle Don's Sour Cream potato chips. They were the best I ever had. The deli my Mom worked at carried them, but only in smaller size bags.

                                          They also don't sell "Pork & Beans" around our area since maybe the 80's sometime they disappeared. These were beans, with little cut up pieces of hotdogs in there. Used to add some molasses and brown sugar.

                                            Anyone know where I can get Chicago style (side split, poppy seed) hot dog rolls in the Boston area? I'd like to try them.

                                              Hi Molly,
                                              try "Popo's" in Swampscott, MA 781-592-9992 they make great dogs but not sure about Chicago ones.
                                              Hope this helps!
                                              Sherri

                                                thanks John, these things were trying to be "gourmet" and had no cartoon affiliation. I'm afraid those lovely crisps are lost to the ages.

                                                Are you referring to "teenage mutant ninja turtle pizza snacks" AKA pizza spins? There is a thread about them in this forum: http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=5974

                                                  At one time Peter Paul had a third candy bar, Almond Cluster, that I guess didn't sell like the Mounds/Almond Joys. I remember it was good - almonds and chocolate are never bad - can't recall if there was a third ingredient, maybe some caramel?

                                                      I sort of remembered Almond Clusters, too, and did a search to see if I could find anything out about their ingredients. All I found was this photo and it looks like maybe it was different from Mounds and Almond Joy because it didn't include coconut.

                                                        Yes! There was a third ingredient! Honeycomb was in there too!
                                                        These were my favorite candy bars as a kid and I was sad to see these are no longer inproduction - anywhere...
                                                        I have dreamed these darn things over the years.....
                                                        also I remember the wrapper looked just like the mounds and almond joy - but where almond joy is blue and Mounds is red, Almond Clusters were Orange and Caravelle was turquoise.

                                                            Beer and Snausages - maybe you're thinkign of Regal Crown. I can't find them on the east coast, either.
                                                            Sky Bars - one of my favorites from when I was a kid are available occasionally at Cracker barrel, but I wish they were more widely available.
                                                            Fizzies need to be brought back. The originals were made with cyclamates, but once that artificial sweetner was banned, Fizzies were discontinued. Apparently, no other artificial sweetener holds together in tablet form.
