How about a place that sells really good homefried potatoes?


Toni where are YOU from that you don't have these?? I see and still go to many of these types of "diners" Even in California where I lived up until a year ago still had plenty of these estabishments!

not only those foods that you mention have disappeared, but Nabisco used to make a very thin sugar cookie called Brown Edge Wafers. Can't find them anywher no matter to what part of the U.S. I travel. Has anyone seen them?
I think I may have seen the large tootsie roll candy at the Dollar Stores near movie theaters.
I live in the northeastern U.S.

I sooo miss Ralston hot breakfast cereal. I loved it and it also made the yummiest muffins. Up until a few years ago I could buy it at Kroger. Now, the only place I've been able to find it is at The Vermont Country Store. I like the stuff but at the per box price, plus shipping and handling, I'll eat some other available hot cereal.

Another thing I miss is Good Seasons mix for blue cheese dressing. It came in a little envelope and you mixed it with oil, vinegar and water. It was okay as a dressing, but it was a main component in a recipe Buck and I loved for marinated mushrooms.

And those fizzy tablets you made "soda" from. Not very tasty, but fun.
I liked the 1-2-3 desserts too!

Fizzies were taken off the market because they had cyclamates in them. Then the government decided cyclamates were okay. I found Fizzies at Cracker Barrel a few months ago. They were pretty expensive. I think they had two flavors there.

Actually, if you're willing to pay the price, most if not all of these "disappeared" items (including "Quisp" cereal) are still available. Just do an internet search. Food Network did a program on just this topic not too long ago, & it was amazing how many of these items are still in production for the "specialty" market.

For me, I miss "Liederkranz Cheese", a close cousin to Limburger, the most.

You might like Handkaese. If you give it a try, please let us know how you liked it.

"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 !!!!
Card and party outlet has the gold gum neggets in the little cloth sack with a drawstring - I don't know if you have one near you.

Just recently I cannot find chocolate graham cracker sticks - either Nabisco and Keebler - can't remember - or chocolate graham crackers for that matter. I found Meijer brand graham crackers but not the other two
brands and none in the sticks - I use them for a sweet cream dip
