Both Banquet and Swanson still make pot pies. I keep some on hand as something to quickly bake whenever I'm tired and don't feel like cooking.

My old favorite is Nestle's Quick. I'd still rather drink that than anything!

My first year on my own I lived on those. They were always on sale 5 for a $1.00!

This thread also made me think of a penny candy called Ice Cubes. They are a hazelnut chocolate square that melts in your hand and in your mouth. They were great.

I guess I am too young for them to be penny candy. I remember them to be .10. I loved them also.

I know Banquet is still available. I love their gravy. I usually treat myself to two every once in a while, usually right after shopping.

Do you have the Fray Bentos steak pie in a tin in the US? I remember them as a kid and was amazed to see them still on sale in Tesco's.
