Things I miss that show that I am an old MFer:
Reggie bars, yes, Reggie Jackson branded candy. Similiar to a Whatchamacallit, but in a blob about the size of a Reeses peanut butter egg.
Burger Chef -- perfected the kids meal with cool packaging like race car shaped boxes back in the 70s.
3 Musketeers bars started to suck in like 84 or so. They used to be whipped noughit (whatever the hell that is) not aerated, it was almost like chocolate mouse. Weigh half as much now.

Still around but I moved away from
Tubby's Submarine. Still around in Michigan but not in Virginia. Best greasy grilled subs ever.
Jimmy John's. Same deal, but deli style subs on french bread.
Faygo soda/pop. Super cheap but tasty soda, also Michingan based.
Towne Club soda/pop See above, may actually be gone, went away for awhile.

There was one across the street from the dorm I lived in during college. When it was cold out at night we'd pay the extra $0.50 per sandwich to have them deliver it.

This is probably a regional thing, but did anyone else like Hy-Vee Red Pop? $0.89 for a 3 litre, baby!

Blake,
are you sure some of that isn't regional? I still think i saw the pizza rolls.

What gets me is the damned Doritos. There are so many flavors now that grocery stores don't stock them all. I like the fiery habaneros, then couldnt' find them. So they made cheesy jalapeno, which I'm liking know. But, last time the closest I found was spicy chili...

Also, I think I'm hooked on Vault....

I'm craving a PB Max right now actually; damned thread!

Proof that Burger Chef was the chit.

I was going to say burger chef too. we had them here until the early 80's then they all turned to burger kings.

rax was my other fav, they just dissappeard from our area about 6-8 years ago. the bbc (bacon beef and cheddar) was man food at its best!

I feel sorry for those who dont have a hardees. Thickburgers are so damn good. and if you get the monster its like 1.5 days worth of calories! :o

I just ate some rally's tonight (but its called checkers here though it has both names on the cups). best fries ever but damn are they greasy.

I miss the 2 for 8.99 little ceasers, I avoid the hot n' ready 5$ bile in a box. crazy bread is still the shit though.

I havent had a pudding pop in like 15 years but now that you mentioned it and I realize i havent seen them in a long time, im going nuts for one! :evil:

maybe we can set up an exchange program, ive got hardees for some chocolate pudding pops!

pudding pops are back, my gf surprised me w/ a box.

the upside: they do have the ice layer.

th downside: they are in the shape of popcicle brand popcicles, so they are more square rather than rectangular, which slightly changes the way they melt and the flavor spectrum on swirls.

this got me thinking of lots of things I miss from when I was a kid, so I pulled out some old comics and looked for some ads to refresh my memory. not all of them are food but Ill post them anyway.

bonkers, man I loved these things.

madballs. I also remember having these rubber dolls that you could squeeze that would smell like farts, vomit, ect... if anyone can remember the name of them please tell me. I know they sold them at spencers gifts around the madballs era and my mom absolutely hated them :lol:

the real mario bros. nuff said

tandy computers. when things like math and spelling were fun just because you could actually make things happen on the screen without dropping in a quarter. The storage drive for my first tandy was a cassete player :roll:
http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l244/swel304/tandy.jpg

I know Ive got to have some ad somewhere for tidal wave gum (mentioned above by blake) which I loved at the time, Ill have to look for some more tommorrow.

I had victor vomit and I can still remember how disgusting it smelled and how absolutely hilarious I found it to spray people in the face and watch them hold back the sickness. :lol:

I just sold off most of my garbage pail kids this past year. I had most of full sets from like series 2-8 and tons of extras. unfortunately the box had taken some water damage in a flooded basement so I didnt get a whole lot out of them.
