Little Debbie Lemon Bars
 
The ORIGINAL Taco Chips of the (maybe) late 1960's or 1979's ???...before the sour cream fad...
 
The ORIGINAL BBQ Chips by Granny Goose and Laura Scudders...the Kansas City bbq and other flavor varients taste yukky in my opinion...
 
UNCLE MILT'S POTATO CHIPS...BBQ, Garlic (!!!), regular...this was a local brand in the 1960's from San Leandro, CA...they also had a small coffee shop in downtown San Leandro...what I liked about the Garlic Chips is that it was just agrlic and salt, not the garlic and onion flavor that is more contemporary...

        I was thinking about that packaged beef stroganoff again and so did a google search just now and found someone else who remembered it fondly
         
        http://www.ralphrobertmoore.com/lately081002.html
         
        I had been trying to remember who made it for years.  I didn't remember it being Lipton's, but I"m just glad that I wasn't imagining the product!
         
        eta:  oh my gosh!  The commercial for Lipton's Beef Stroganoff!  I can almost taste it!

          Elmer's mint bubblets
          Sunshine raisin biscuits
          Frozen dinner - can't think who made it - when microwaves first came out, there was a TV dinner with a variety of choices, but the beef tips were very tasty - I remember they came on a hard, microwave plate you could reuse.
           
          mbrookes - I miss those Kraft garlic and jalapeno rolls too.   Also, Velveeta hot Mexican cheese.  There's a couple recipes I make that call for the garlic rolls, now I use regular Velveeta and a few drops of Tabasco or Sirachi in it's place.

            The Kraft web site has a recipe for a substitute for the garlic roll,  but it calls for "garlic to taste." The point was that the rolls already had the right amount of garlic so you dodn't have to guess.

              They still have Tuna in oil. A lot of food brands make them. We always keep grabbing them by mistake when we go shopping. As for me I want Pepsi Blue back. I loved that soda. I also want WWE ice cream bars back. The cookie part of it was so good. And my supermarket used to make these awesome moleasses cookies, but they stopped making them awhile ago.

                  Bart - thanks, I'm thinking of a much later date of course, maybe it was Marie Callendar. 
                   
                  If you are near a large Asian market  - check out Sultana biscuits as a close second to those Sunshine raisin biscuits.  Their raisins are harder and chewier than I remember, but at 1.39 a bag, not a big loss if you don't like them.

                    I have been lurking on this forum and reading it for quite awhile so first time post for me. Anyway, I read this last night and thought about Entenmann Products. I'm in the Midwest and we have been devouring Entenmann's for at least twenty years but tehre are severeal items I have not seen since at least the late 1990s. No idea if they have been discontinued or just not in my area anymore. I miss the white chocolate macadamian nut cookies, the creme filled choclate cake and the cookies that used to make around holiday times with chocolate on the bottom and sprinkles on top. Don't know what those were called but they were good.
                     
                    Also, haven't seen any of the Kraft bagelfuls lately? Are those gone as well?

                        Personally I can't help you but I am sure that some of our posters will do so.  I have attached their website so that you can review what they have and what they ain't.

                          Red Oval Farms stoned wheat thins - I love these crackers, I think they're still sold, but not in our area.  I've tried other brands, but nothing compares.

                            Checked the website a couple of the things I mentioned are still but I have not seen them in stores in my area for quite sometime. I actually live not too far from an Entenmenn's Outlet Store. I go there fromt time to time to stock up on bagels but I never find anything but endless donuts (which I don't care for) and coffee cakes. Bah!

                              We live near an Entemanns outlet store also, and any thing sold there resembling a bagel wouldn't be an actual bagel!

                                LOL! Well, our outlet store sells Thomas bagels for very reasonable prices. Never fails. Been going there for years to get my breakfast bagel fix.

                                  A few of you mentioned the original TACO FLAVOR Doritos.   Well. ... Good news!   I can say for certain that they have been back since at least last spring.  They are even using a retro looking packaging that looks very much like the original (except for nutritional label, bar code, etc.). 
                                  I don't know all the places that sell them, but I have seen them in Publix in FL, and in Giant in VA.

                                        All I need to do to bring back discontinued products is to dig into the back of the fridge.  
                                        And don't even ask about the freezer. God only knows what is there.
                                        On my behalf I will say that if it's too green and fuzzy I get rid of it.

                                          I sure miss the Nabisco Bacon crackers, as well as the swiss crackers, i would often eat them together. Other things I miss:
                                           
                                          Hersheys "Bar None". Bar far the best candy bar ever
                                          Pepperidge farm "cheese and Garlic" croutons
                                          "Wolds" popcorn. We used to get a laundry bag size of that popcorn every month at Price club (now Costco)
                                          Frankenstuff--hot dog with chli inside

                                            Cocoa Marsh was my favorite chocolate syrup of all time. Also, Kellogg's Concentrate cereal was very good, along with Puffa Puffa rice. I'm afraid these are gone forever. If by chance they were to make a comeback they probably wouldn't be the same exact formula, as chemical engineers are always trying to make products as cheap as possible.

                                                CHRIS OC, The Vermont Country store recently had both of those soups in their catalog. If I'm not mistaken, one of those soups had chunks of tripe in it.

                                                  Yes, the pepper pot.  I don't see them on their website now.

                                                    This stuff was great - one use of it = about six cleanings with Windex.

                                                        There was a cleaning solution in a spray bottle called BAM.
                                                         
                                                        It was WONDERFUL!  Took away stains that nothing else could tackle, even stains that were around for years.
                                                         
                                                        EPA didn't like it.
                                                         
                                                        Replaced with Kaboom which doesn't compare. Sadly, nothing compares to BAM.
