For me, I miss "Liederkranz Cheese", a close cousin to Limburger, the most.
I loved Liederkrantz too and wondered what happened to it. Here is an excerp from an article on the internet:


The Borden plant, which by then had moved to Van Wert, Ohio, was sold to the Fisher Cheese Co. in 1982. When bacterial contamination was found in a batch, Liederkranz was withdrawn from the market in August 1985.
"That was the last time Liederkranz was made," Nelson wrote.

Too bad, but there is a cheese that is almost identical to Liederkranz and it's called Schloss. Google "Marin French Cheese" to read about it.

If you google "Home Town Favorites", you will find a hard to find grocer with products that are still available and a list of products that are no longer made or have had their name changed.

I am uncertain if I am allowed to use a link here or not.

The Vermont Country Store catalog carries a lot of products that we don't se much any more. If you write (call, email) them they'll sometimes find them for you.

I received 18 ounces of Schloss yesterday from Marin. Have not tasted it yet but the pros and cons seem to be:

Pros-
Looks, feels and smells like it'll be good.
Arrived in good condition and very nicely packed.
Spoke to their customer service on their 800 number and they were very pleasant.

Cons-
They do not e-mail a shipping confirmation with a tracking number
They're a bit pricey; on sale and with a free shipping teaser , the cost was $29.

Mom used to pour some Okite ? Oakite ? powder in with the dish soap/water. I don't really remember what it did, but haven't seen that in 35+ years. She also soaked yellowed white linens she found at garage sales in it and then put in washer. Stuff came out clean like new. I now do that with borax for the same effect.
Does anyone remember oakite?

Sure do. It was in the same league as Mex. It was also a powerful degreaser and pretty good paintbrush cleaner. Probably was heavy in the tabooed phosphate department.

I wonder if TSP was supposed to take it's place as a powerful degreaser, etc., and wallpaper remover?
Although, I wouldn't put it in my linens or dish water.
Eats the skin off your hands.

I think the sale of TSP is restricted in some locales.
Lotsa stuff is not too available any more. My International Harvester shop manual recommended degreasing distributor contact points with chloroform.
