    I think General Mills also made "Gardetto's" and "Wahoo!"

    The market for puffed, shaped snacks (of which Snackers was one example) was not developed until General Mills introduced Bugles, Whistles, and Daisys nationally in 1966.

    My family was living overseas and my aunt mailed us boxes of then-new Bugles - they were crumbs by the time we got 'em, but still enjoyable.

    A couple more shapes, Buttons and Bows, cropped up later, then they all disappeared from our shelves (til Bugles cropped up again).

    I believe that the whistles were tube shaped and yellow, sort of like a cheeto with the center hollow.

    BakersBoy,
    I remember them well, and used to try to blow a tune on them to no avail.
    My consumption of snack foods has decreased so much in the ensuing aeons that I never noticed when they were discontinued.
    The one snack cracker that I would really, truly miss is Chicken In A Biscuit. Triscuit is another, as are Wheat Thins.
    To those ends, Nabisco, among others, is discovering that there's money to be made by retaining its "niche" products and continuing to sell them in those areas where sufficient traffic is generated to make the deal profitable. That's probably why some Nabisco products are sold in these parts that aren't nationally available (or don't seem to be) - they have a bakery over on Murphy Avenue in S/W Atlanta. Strikes me that I was once told that they have a certain amount of autonomy from bakery to bakery as to what they can continue to produce, so maybe that explains it.
    Feedback, anyone?
    Uncrunchingly, Ort. Carlton in Diminishingly Rainwindy Athens, Georgia.

    I haven't seen any boxes in several years. They now come in a bag.
