Divefl, I miss those poptarts! And just like you said, they make all those new similar-sounding flavors but they're just not the same.

    Do y'all remember ICE CUBES? If I had ICE CUBES and FUDGIES and the old King Dons, my sweet world would be perfect!

      Ice Cubes are still around. I usually find them at convenience stores sold by the cube.
      You can buy them online. Here is a link:

      Enjoy.

              You can still find sky bars in candy stores. Not necessarily the ones in the mall.

                I've seen Skybars at a few candy counters in my area of northeastern PA, and here's a link I found that compares Skybars to the now extinct 7 Up Bars:

                    So that's what those were? All this time people have been mentioning them, I thought it was an actual candy that tasted like 7-Up soda!
                    I don't think I hav ever seen this.

                      This snack is still available, but most parents and kids do not consider it a snack.Most people call it celery and it still can be found in the produce department.

                      I'm going to guess you became an IRS auditor or DMV administrator.

                        Act II microwave fries. only mic fries that really got crisp.
                        Tastykake Butter Kreme TandyTakes.
                        Puffa-Puffa Rice cereal.

                        and i'll second the Danish Go Rounds!

                        anyone have Nabisco Bacon Flavored Thins in their region? they come and go from Florida but it's been awhile and i'm afraid they're gone. i did used to see them on the west coast even when we didn't have them here. i'm hoping the same might be true of the Act II fries.. we get the rest of their line here, just not the fries, which i haven't seen anywhere in my travels.

                        i do remember 7-up bars, they were like Sky Bars, which had different kinds of creme filling in each nub.

                          oh and i noticed someone here mention Amish country, does anyone from that area see ValleyMaid potato chips anymore? i grew up in Philadelphia and visited recently for the first time since the 70's, craving a bag of ValleyMaid chips from the local deli (that was still there!), but all they had was Herr's now. which are great but not even close to ValleyMaid. the two used to be rivals and it looks like Herr's won out.

                                      I still dream about Bonomo's (vanilla) Turkish Taffy. And, when I was a kid growing up in NYC during the 40's and 50's I remember a little chocolate chip cookie with a "swirl" top baked by Sunshine Baking Company in Long Island City. Anyone from the NYC area in their fifty's or sixty's remember those cookies?

                                            If you google Cadbury Curly Wurly, it's a dead ringer for the old Marathon bar and many companies are importing them in from overseas.

                                              I liked those Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pies in the 90's. They were a green shelled pie and had a custard filling or something. I just remember they were tasty. I'm probably the only one that ate them lol

                                                You can still buy drumstick ice cream cones in the Pittsburgh, PA area and Spree candy, and I think Wacky Wafers. There is a candy store called Baldinger's on Rt 19, about 30 miles north of the burgh, right before the intersection of 528 and Rt. 19. They have a huge variety of candy from the past.... boston baked beans, lemon heads, charms pops, clark bars, spree and sweet tarts, laffy taffy. If you are ever in the area, this is definitely a place you will want to go to. They do not have a website though.

                                                I wish they would bring back:

                                                Ice cream gum (sold in sticks)
                                                Chum Gum (sold in sticks)
                                                Big Daddy Gum (sold in rope like around 10" long, in all different kinds of flavors, my favorite was the green apple and grape)

                                                My favorite snack was Corn Diggers (Nabisco)
                                                If anyone who works at Nabisco is reading this, this is a snack I would just love to have back. I think they could become a popular snack again

                                                I found out Choco-lite bars are now called Aero Bars, in Canada, and you can buy them from a website called http://www.candydirect.com/bars/Aero-Bars-162-oz.html
                                                Check it out... there are many favorites from the past there that you can buy on line.

                                                  Oh Yeah, .....Breezy:

                                                  You can still buy Ice Cubes in the Pittsburgh, PA area and you can also buy them on line at www.vermontcountrystore.com

                                                    I'm not sure if this was mentioned before, but you can still find Marathon candy bars. They come from the U.K. they are called Cury Wurly, they can be found @ Cost Plus or any british food store.

                                                        I'm surprised none of you female types alluded to the scene in 13 Going On 30 where Jenna and Matt (as adults) went to the store for a package of Razzles to split, like they did as kids, and both went absolutely bonkers when they actually found a store that carried Razzles. That's one of my personal best scenes from romantic movies, beaten only by the scene in Katz's Deli from When Harry Met Sally.
