nicolem- Oh my God! I have been looking for those puffs for years! My Grandma used to buy those every new year's eve. Me and her were would devour the whole box. They were kind of hard to find the rest of the year, but if we found them off season she would buy them and make them for lunch for us. I'm not sure who made them, does anybody know? I always wondered if you can make them from frozen puff pastry, rolled thin and top them with the powdered popcorn topppings(sour cream and onion, cheese). I'll have to give it a try and get back to you.

Wow I am glad someone else remembers them. My husband and I remember them- we used to eat them quite a bit but everyone else I ask does not remember them.

nicolem- I know how you feel! No one else seems to remember them. The last time I saw them I was probably 13 or 14 so it was probably the mid 90's. I wish I could remember who made them. If I'm not mistaken I think they also made a small package of assorted appetizers with pigs in a blanket, potato puffs, some swirly pastry things and I'm not sure what else. There were only like five of the pigs in a blanket in the box and I remember fighting with my brother over them.

I can't remember who they were made by (think Tom's) but I seem to recall them being called 'Rock N Roll Planks' - it was two thin, crispy gingerbread cookies that sort of flaked in layers and they were scalloped around the edges and iced in a hot pink icing. They came two per a glassine sleeve.

Instant chicken supreme with 'sherry' - it was aweful but good. It was one of the few things my paternal grandmother could cook that I would eat (she wasn't much of a cook). It had these dried pieces of chicken, dried peas and carrots with a sauce mis and noodles. And the 'special' was that it came with a package of 'sherry' you could add if you wanted to get sophisticated or booze it up.

I have seen these from time to time so I think they are still in production, just hard to find but I LOVED the great big Sour Charms pops. Especially cherry and green apple.

Jolly Rancher 'sticks' - thin so you could break off pieces.

Giant Sweet Tarts - not the chewy or gummy type.

Thanks for the great memories, everyone! I craved O'Grady's Au Gratin chips thirty years ago when pregnant with my daughter.

I remember back in the 50's and early 60's, there were wonderful penny candy jars at the Ben Franklin store. The store even had a wood planked floor that would creak like the Dickins. I loved the bubble gum that was turquoise blue with a sugar crystal coating. They were called "sputniks".

I wish Nabisco didn't change the texture and recipe for Sugar Wafers. They are NOT the same. They were the ultimate cookie.

Yay! Welcome! This cracks me up - big time. My husband had once told me about some soap that grew fuzz on it when he was a kid. I thought it was just mold - lol - I thought he was crazy. He really wasn't hallucinating! Now I have to search it out to see if I can surprise him....maybe someone on ebay has it. It's probably a rare collectible with my luck. (plus I have to hope he doesn't see this post! ) Welcome to Roadfood. Look forward to hearing about your experiences and adventures! Sue

That's IT! Exactly. And once it got wet, the fuzz wasn't supposed to grow back, but it actually did, just a little.

Welcome to the forum. Whattaya know, I've inspired a first-timer!

Kraft Reduced Calorie French Dressing, circa 1990. It was not sold in Metro NYC; I used to buy it in NE Maryland and Pennsylvania IGA supermarkets. A really flavorful bottled dressing. After it disappeared, I wrote to Kraft. They replied that it was discontinued due to low sales.

You still get these here and they are called "Wagon Wheels". Although they seem to have discontinued my favourite variety of them, the toffee filled ones!

Bounty Bars and Marathons (Snickers as they are now known) are also still available here!

The things I really miss though are:

Creamola Foam
Toffee Yo Yo Biscuits
Lucky Charms cereal
Twix Icecreams
Concentrated orange squash (not sure who made it)
Toffee Wagon Wheel Biscuits
Banana milkshake syrup- I know its still around but I cannot find it.

Quisp cereal for me. It came back for a couple of months & I could get it at Shaw's in Nashua, NH...but no more.
I heard that you could get it online...but I imagine that someone just found a few pallets of it in an old warehouse somewhere & was trying to sell it.

Would this have been from the very late 60s/early 70? I have been remembering what I think was an instant beef stroganoff from that time period. Seems like it had freeze dried beef, noodles and sauce packet. It was in a strange shaped box. I loved that stuff!

The chicken supreme sounds familiar, from the same era.

One item I wished would be brought back, has, and that is Pepperidge Farm Four Cheese sticks. Only they're called 'Artisan Cheese' sticks now.

I am a very happy camper! I was getting tired of Pepperidge Farm Parmesan Goldfish, which is all I've been snacking on since Nabisco discontinued Swiss Cheese and Bacon Thins crackers and I've been boycotting them :)

i heartily agree with bacon thins
there was also another nabisco cracker in the early 80s(i think) that was shaped like a fried chicken leg,not a flat cracker but puffed up, flavored like chicken of course

apple newtons-tasted like tiny apple pies

and my favorite discontinued food, also from the early to mid 80s, was pepperidge farm frozen puff pastry vegetable side-dishes.
they were vegetables wrapped in a circle of puff pastry that you heated in the oven. they had broccoli and cheddar, asparagus, mushroom, and were absolutely delicious. i think every food is improved by being wrapped in puff pastry

I didn't know they'd stopped making Apple Newtons..... Don't think I ever ate any....

Don't know the Pepperidge Farm products you wrote about but we used to fill their frozen pastry shells with canned or frozen Chicken a'la King. Yum!

As for the crackers, weren't they Chicken in a Biskit? They still make those..... http://tinyurl.com/ys2dl5

I did a little search in the dessert forum for Sara Lee banana cake YUM!! but we found out they only exist in australia soo sad does anyone remember something in the 70's that was like kool-aid but it was chocolate flavored? It might have been called choco chill or chilly choco, and it was DISGUSTING but oh, how I loved it!

definitely not chicken in a biskit-they were shaped like chicken drumsticks and were a medium golden brown color, not light colored like chicken in a biskit. they were so tasty but i cant remember the name of them


i also used to love nabisco vegetable thins, and was so excited when they brought them back, but the flavor did not match my memory at all. i suspect they changed the recipe, or maybe some things just taste better in your mind

You have to let whatever you're spreading on them get to room temperature.

Re:Bring Back Discontinued Products - HYDROX AND MYSTIC MNT COOKIES - Sat, 07/18/09 2:16 PM

Do you know about "Hometownfavorites.com"?  It's an online grocery that sells hard-to-find products.  Some of the things you remember might be available there.  They don't sell substitutes or taste-alikes.  They only sell products that are currently being made, though not sold everywhere. Bosco is one of them.

One of my favorite hard-to-finds is Heinz Sweet Gherkins.  I've put in a request with Hometown Favorites to stock them.  BTW:  Hometown Favorites has a list of discontinued products, and one for renamed products.  One favorite of mine was Kraft "Old English" cheese slices.  Kraft still makes it under a new name, "Deli Select Sharp Cheddar".  Miss the "Old English" name, but the cheese is as good as ever.

Two discontinuted favorites:  Hydrox cookies and Nabisco Mystic Mint.  Just learned today that Keebler brought out Hydrox original recipe last year for a limited time.  I DIDN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT, AND I'M DEVASTATED! :)

Nabisco Mystic Mints were like big Girl Scout cookies--the Thin Mints.  FFV (Fine Foods of Virginia) also made a similar cookie.

Remember Sealtest ice ceam?

Pepperidge Farm made a wonderful whole wheat bread in the '60's called "Hovis".  I visited the PF factory in Norwalk CT back then and Mrs. Rudkin still owned it.  She met us at the door wearing a lovely corsage.  After the tour we were each given a loaf of warm Hovis bread.  There was something special about it, and it was delicious!  We ate it for years until it was discontinued.  At one time they even made Hovis sugar cookies.  The Pepperidge Farm factory no longer gives tours, but if you drive down Hill's Lane you can smell the break baking--heaven!

Hey, I remember Chocomint LIfe Savers, and wondered if they were still being made.  The first time I had them (must have been 6 or 7) I thought chocolate and peppermint would be a strange combination.  They were delicious!  :)

Yes, where did they go?  They were the best.

The New York Times had an aarticle about Cadbury's.  The real British is apparently way better than what they sell in the U.S  Our Cadbury is made by Hershey's.  The article explained that Cadbury sold its recipe to foreign countries which adapted it to local taste.  That's why an Amiercan Cadbury bar doesn't taste like a British one.  Ever been to Switzerland and tasted a Nestle bar?  It's wonderful--more like Lindt or Tobler.

I miss Land O' Lakes butter cookies. I also miss the original version of nacho cheese doritos. The current flavor is not the same.


Land O'Lakes actually used to make a boxed macaroni & cheese mix like Kraft. Unlike Kraft, it was not that garish orangey color, and still just as cheesariffic. They stopped making it. :(

You can buy Five Alive here in Texas, because I just bought two cans at the H.E.B.Grocery store in Universal City, it was in the frozen juice aisle.
 
I wish Keebler's would bring back their flour tortilla chips that were around in the late 1980s,early 90s. They weren't greasy or anything, were crisp and light.
Yeah I too loved Turkish Taffy as a kid.
The modern Fizzies are nowhere near as good as the ones I grew up with as a kid.
 
At Hometown Favourites I see some things that some of the stores carry by me.H.E.B. now carries again B &M baked beans.They didn't for a long time.

What has happened to Kraft garlic cheese roll and jalapeno cheese roll? I haven't seem them in a while, and I always used them in making casseroles. Are they still around?

Kraft Oil & Vinegar Dressing from the '70s and '80s.  Loved the stuff so much I could drink it from the bottle.
