My dad used to LOVE the cinnamon ice breakers gum.... I don't know if they quit making that kind or what.. THey still make the other kinds?.. This time last year I tried everything, emailing the company, going to random stores everywhere I went... I think i ended up finding 3 packs over a 6 month time period...

Does anyone see the cinnamon ice breakers gum where you live??

Oh they still make those and they can be found in the malls, I'm sure I saw them 5 years ago last time I shopped a mall. One of my friends, it was her favorite candy and I used to get her some. I think the paper was good for fiber. I tend to remember people close to me, their favorite candies, like my mom, she likes orange slices (jelly candy coated in sugar). I like the flavor red, so sometimes strawberry or cherry.

What happened to Fresca? How about Raspberry flavored Diet rite? (Since I can't find these, I don't drink soda anymore.)

Remember 'sandwich spread'........bolongna w/pickles and mayo, we still make that at home. Though, it's been a while.

Pimento cheese--I've only seen recipes, never tasted the original.

My dad used to buy Grapette soda by the case when we were kids. They came in bottles smaller than the small 7up. I found some a couple of years ago and ordered them, but they aren't the same at all. It tasted like it had too much water in it - not much taste.

I used to love "flake" chocolate bars. They were like a bunch of chocolate shavings rolled into a log and covered in a layer of chocolate. When you bit into them the flakes would all melt in your mouth. Saw them briefly reappear a couple of years ago and then gone again!

Also the original licorice cigars and pipes. They were real licorice. The ones now are not the same at all. I actually haven't been able to find true licorice for a long time.

I can't find sugar daddys. My mom used to love those and I've looked off & on for a couple of years now.

How about JuJubees? I used to buy those in the theatre (40 years ago). UHhggggg...

Oh, yeah, Sattie, you are reminding me! They used to make a Chunky Mushroom Soup with huge pieces of mushrooms, but that one is gone too.
