It was called Psssssst (not sure how many s's!). In an emergency it actually worked pretty well, the first time. If you tried to use it twice in a row though, it really was disgusting.

Thanks, Barbara. That was it. It was like putting talc on grease.
Or baking soda on grease. Then trying to brush it out some of the powder and greasy came out, but the residue was aweful. Mom bought it for me so I wouldn't go out with wet hair in the winter. One try - in the garbage. But all the girls had to try it. The company must have made a fortune that first winter it was introduced. Great idea, though.

Probably really "aging" myself here, does anyone remember the little candy "dots" that came affixed to the paper? They were all different colors, and whenever you ate one off the paper, a bit off the paper remained stuck to the underside of the candy! (Maybe the FDA got involved with that)

"Gold Rush" bubble gum? Gold gum "nuggets" in a little cloth sack with a drawstring

Chick-O-Stix

Russell-Stover "Fruit & Nut" Egg-Sold around Easter time, these were LARGE-you sliced them-about the diameter of a softball

And speaking of Easter, does anyone remember "Rubys" (or was it Rudys) Easter egg dye? It made the most beautiful easter eggs you've ever seen-I found some on ebay year before last, they wanted 20.00$ for the kit plus S&H !!!!

Uncle Bob, speaking of soda pop, do you remember Delaware Punch? It was my favorite when I was a little girl, because I don't really care for carbonated drinks...guess what? They have it here in Mexico! Still the same. A trip down Memory Lane.

Smoke King you can't be that old because I remember everything you named clearly let alone them still selling over half of what you named!

I remember all of these! I loved Chick-O-Stix and the Russell Stover eggs.

Another one I remember was Cherry-o-let. I also liked Seven Up candy bars (they had seven sections, each with a different filling--kind of like a mini box of assorted chocolates all in one little candy bar). I haven't seen them in stores in years, but there is a website where you can find candy that used to be popular, and they have them there. I will try to find the website and post it.

Barbara
Edited to add, I found a few websites that have hard-to-find candy (including Chick-O-Stix), but this one has a story about the Seven Up bars (which haven't been available in many years): http://candyaddict.com/blog/2008/04/...#comment-98458.
