Candy Dots, Fresca soda, & the pimiento-cheese spread in a jar are all still alive & kicking - at least here in Virginia. In fact, here we have several brands of ready-made pimiento cheese to choose from, it being a Southern thing & all. . . .

Love Spam products & often buy the new Turkey Spam for my non-meating-hubby. Makes for a terrific Egg, Spam, & Cheese breakfast sandwich.

I actually saw the candy dots this week at a local grocery store! I was surprised to see it in an ordinary grocer.

Rouge et Noir

Marin French Cheese Co.ís Rouge et Noir Schloss compares quite favorably to the long gone Liederkrantz.

I have seen it at certain grocery or drug stores but I can't remember how recently. I used to love that stuff myself. You would have to smack it against the counter or something and then take a piece and suck on it until it was soft enough to slowly chew!

Cornhusker Hand Wash. I can't tell you what that clear slime looked like. But it wasn't pretty.
I think I was 10/11 when I first saw it.

Those SuperBalls kids had in every color, including rainbow, and every size.

"Corn Huskers Lotion" is definitely still around. Some drugstores & farm supply stores carry it.

Does anyone remember those little made in Japan windchimes made out of little panes of glass (maybe 1" x 3"s) with japanese
characters (letters) painted on the glass. The glass panes hung from red string. They were very inexpensive for kids to buy their
moms, and found in every five and dime. (and NY' Chinatown.
I know, I know - they weremade in Japan, but they hung everywhere in Chinatown).
I think they had the sweetest tinkling sound.
