Candy bars, ice cream, chips, sodas, breakfast treats--all welcome here.
If only MM/Mars, Hershey, Frito-Lay, Kellogg's, etc would read these posts!

My list:
Kellogg's Danish Go-Rounds
Jello Pudding Pops
Marathon candy bar
Choco-Lite candy bar
Dorito's Taco flavored chips
Tostito's Nacho cheese flavor chips
Breakfast Squares
Hostess pudding-filled cupcakes
Hostess lemon-flavored cupcakes
Drake's Yankee Doodles

all I can think of now...but suggestions welcome

    I can think of a couple...

    Turkish Taffy - Vanilla and Banana. Chocolate and Strawbery were just 'ok'.

    Toaster Pizza

    Sarah Lee chocolate cake with chocolate icing

    Dolly Madison Pink Angels

          They still have Jello Pudding Pops - I had some a few weeks ago - introduced my 5 year old daughter to them. Man, the were just as good as I remember them too!

              I second the marathon bar and add sour cream and onion doritos and pringles corn chips.

                Eagle brand snacks. An Anheuser-Busch thing, these chips and pretzels were great. The business was sold to Frito Lay, I think, sometime in the mid to late 90's, but the chips were the best. They were kind of like kettle cooked, and it seemed like the whole bag was made up of the folded and brown kind (my favorite)

                  "Chipnics"... a late 1960's pre-Pringle and Muncho processed potato chip... came in a box... I'd eat a full box watching the Detroit Tigers every Saturday during the 1968 season...

                          Some that I would like to see brought back are the keebler pizzaria chips and most definitely the tostito salsa and cream cheese flavored chips.

                          There also used to be a candy that was powdered and came in fruit shaped containers and the shape of the fruit was the flavor it was. I probably wouldn't like them much now but I loved them as a kid.

                          The cookies and cream twix was pretty tasty too.

                            Another vote for Doo Dads and one for Ruffles Bacon and Sour Cream potato chips.

                                  Frogger you can still buy Zero Candy Bars and our Wal-Marts here in Huntsville, AL, sell Tahitian Treat (in cans). I absolutely love Tahitian Treat drinks when it is hot outside and you drink down a cold one.

                                  Check out places like Dollar General, Family Dollar, and Dollar Tree for Zero candy bars.

                                  Good luck

                                                          Yes keebler tater skins are still available they are my husbands favorite chip.

                                                          The mention of Fritos made me remember a flavor of Fritos that was ranch tho i don't remember the exact name of them they were great.

                                                          Also I dont know aobut anywhere else but we used to have all kinds of flavors of corn nuts like nacho cheese and ranch which were my favorite but it seems like all I can find anymore are the bbq and original
