Bring Back Discontinued Products

In the beverage forum we've been talking about the fack that Schlitz Beer is back in its old formula for us baby boomers...Got me to thinking...if you could encourage companys to bring back long gone products from ages ago we miss and love...what would you most want returned.
I've heard that a candy long gone, Bonomo's turkish Taffe is making a comeback, and mostly because people have been begging for its return. I'll welcome it back...even "Fizzies" from the 50's have made a comeback....and Nedick's Orange soda is sold in New York again!!
Can "Cocoa Marsh" chocolate syrup, my 50's favorite be far behind?? Or Post "Pep" Flakes? If you had a company's ear, what product would you beg to have put back on the shelves????

    My choice would be Merri-Mints, which have been featured in a Roadfood thread with 300+ posts and 35,000+ views. That would make a lot of people happy.

    I vote for Eagle Snacks. Eagle Potato Chips, White Cheddar Popcorn, almonds, etc. I really miss them.

    Jello 123!!! God, I loved that stuff growing up. I used to eat it layer by layer. I would never just dive right into eat. I was an odd child! They brought back jello pudding pops, but they aren't like the one's I grew up with. Also, I wish they brought back the jello fruit bars. Those were so good!

    Taco bell Cinnamon Chips. I don't really care for taco bell, but my friends and I would go there on our lunch break at school, it was the closest thing around. I got addicted to them. Now they have cinnamon twists that I can't stand.

    Oreo big stuff

    Dunkin Donuts Cereal

    O Boise's sour cream and onion potato skin chips

    Almost Home Cookies- My mom doesn't cook, so when my grandmother couldn't make it to a school bake sale, my mom passed them off as her own! They were good though!

    Ecto Cooler

    Whistle Pops

    Five Alive juice

    Cheese Tid Bits

    Nerds cereal

    Hi-C Candy Apple Cooler

    Ice Cube chocolates

    Pop Tarts cereal

    Gingerbread Ice cream sandwhiches

    Frosted Rice Krispies

    Oatmeal Swirlers

    Microwable cake mix- don't remember who made it but I beleive there was a german chocolate and pineapple upside down cake. Both were so yummy!

    And my number one Franco American Macaroni and Cheese. My mom and grandmother would go to Bingo like, 5 days a week and leave me with my grandfather and this was the only food I would eat for him. It was the best!

    And yes, I was a child of the 80's!

    It seems like every gas station and mini-mart in this state has a plastic
    tub of Ice Cubes next to the register for .25/ea. Where are you at querty79?

    I say bring back Nabisco Swiss Cheese crackers! And Bacon Thins too, while you're at it!

    drummagick- I live in Florida now, which is why I don't see them down here. They would melt too fast! When I lived on Long Island, I only saw them a few places. That was just a few years ago, but I've seen a lot more when I was younger. I've seen them for sale online, but you have to buy a whole tub of them.

    And I second the motion to bring back the bacon thins and swiss cheese crackers! Yumm!

    Eagle snacks are still around. I talked to a rep at a career fair just last week about positions with them, and she gave me a bag of the white cheddar popcorn. Man, is that stuff addictive!

    Two items that I mixed together back in the late '60's- Leilani Hawaiian Rum and Pomac.

    My favorite cookie to take to school in the early 50's was a Nabisco cookie made with two vanilla wafers with a marshmallow in the middle..I think it disappeared in the 70's. Mine came in a narrow box..with one row of the cookies..just enough for a growing kids snack with a school container of milk! They were called Marshmallow Sandwich cookies

    I was just at super walmart the other day and was down the cookie and cracker aisle. I noticed that they had walmart brand bacon crackers. I didn't buy them as I only had limited funds with me at the time. Has anyone tried them? Are they like the bacon thins?

    Oh, and someone told me about Dr. Oetker gelatin that is like jello 123. I looked it up online and it kind of looks like jello 123. I haven't seen it in any stores though, but you can buy it online from them or from hometown favorites. I'll have to order some and try it out.

    Original peanut butter Twix (not the new "PB Twix" with the nasty chocolate cookie layer) - that was my favorite candy bar of all time, until they disappeared from shelves last year. Guess I'll just have to make my own now!

    efuery,
    Wow! That's one flavor of theirs that I missed that I reallllly would like to have tried.
    The Ben & Jerry's flavor that I miss the most is their one-up peanut butter flavor (it's not resting in their Departed Flavor Graveyard on their website!) that was a benefit to Tuskegee University. I must have eaten 25 cartons of the stuff, both because I loved it and because I wanted to help Tuskeegee rebuild their Old Main Building that was ruined in a fire about 15 years ago.

    I was going to say Summit Candy Bars but stricken detective beat me to it!

    Also, Jello 1-2-3 - loved it.

    Shasta apple soda.

    Real Cadbury chocolate - they've changed it and it's not as good any more.

    Hood Cherry Amaretto Sherbet, and Mint Chippety Chocolaty ice cream.

    The animal-shaped soap that grew fuzz.

    The brownie mix that had the layer of truffle on top.

    The carrot cake mix that had the bag of dried fruit that you soaked in boiling water before adding it to the batter.

    I sure do miss the Franco American Macaroni and Cheese too. Chef Boyardee just came out with one but it's just not the same.

    HotDogHead- I know what you mean. I tried the Chef Boyardee one and it's just not the same. The Franco American one had really long noodles and a pale yellow sauce. I remember being in my highchair eating it and sharing it with my dog( I always got in trouble for this).
