  • Pringles were a new snack concept, and only came in one flavour whilst dorito's had been out for awhile but introduced the new nacho cheese flavour.

    Does anyone else remember 1-2-3 jello? I think it came out in the late 60's but continued strong into the 70's. I especially liked the strawberry flavour!

    That horrid cheese in a can was, I think , a total 70's innovation. I can recall having it on ritz crackers with my friend as we watched Love American style.
    • I loved Carnation Breakfast Bars...those were the best!

      And I still get giddy over Screaming Yellow Zonkers...I know how to make them!
      • I don't remember the breakfast bars, but I do remember Carnation Instant Breakfast. Gooooood stuff... and jam packed with sugar!
        • MMM HMMM...Yummy stuff!

          I remember food sticks! I was goiong to write bout them too, but I didn't know what they were called till Spidra posted...

          AND TANG!! the astronauts drank TANG!! that stuff may as well have been St. Joseph's baby aspirin! I loved that stuff!
          • Koogle! Flavored peanut butter.
            Junket-Had it after my tonsils were removed! Pink Jello
            Hunts snack n' pack pudding cups. WOW if you had that in your lunch bag.
            Zotz..oh I will be here forever.

      Loved 1-2-3 Jello! Had an older sister that for some reason would always mess it up when she tried to make it(she also tried to make macaroni and cheese buy frying it in a pan). So to this day whenever she tries to make fun of anybody else we just simply look at her and say "1-2-3 Jello?" and it shuts her up immediately. :-)
  • Those muffins that came in a can and you whacked the can against the fireplace and it went POP and then you took out the dough, in very gooey discs, and put them on a cookie sheet and put it in the oven and OH MAN THAT'S GOOD EATIN'. When I want a sentimental journey I still make them. That is why I weigh one million billion pounds.
  • "I loved Carnation Breakfast Bars...those were the best!"

    Definitely! I was so mad when they stopped making them! Grrrr!

    Fizzies tablets. (Sort of like flavored "Alka Seltzer" tablets.) Those were fun. I can't remember how they tasted, though...

    I *REALLY* miss Hostess "Banana Dreams". Mmmmmmm, yummy! (Please tell me I'm not the only one who remembers those!)
    • Banana Dreams, alternative flavor for Suzy-Q's.

      Tang came in grape, too.

      Reggie Bar.

      They make Fizzies these days, too. They came in grape, cherry, and orange, and you dropped them into a glass of sugar flavored with water. The new ones have (ugh) Nutra-Sweet mixed in them, no sugar involved. What's the point?

      "Marathon lasts a good, long time."
      "I've got the fever for the flavor of a Pringles."
      • Banana Dreams were nothing like Suzy-Q's!
        They came in a 2-pack, and had a yellow colored creamy topping on banana flavored 'cups'. (The 'cups' being shaped like the shortcake things you buy to put strawberries on.) *WAY* better than Suzy-Q's could ever be!

        Fizzies were just dropped into water. You weren't supposed to put sugar in the water first. Or did you mean that the fizzies made it a sugar flavored water??

        Yeah, I've tried the newer version of fizzies. They really suck!

      Were the Carnation Breakfast bars this chocolatey kind of roll, like a softer tootsie roll? I loved those things....
      • ** "Were the Carnation Breakfast bars this chocolatey kind of roll, like a softer tootsie roll?..." ** They were "Bars", not rolls. I remember there being a chocolate flavored one, that was sort of like a frosted brownie. That was the only flavor I bought. They were sold in a box. I don't remember how many came in a box.
  • Unsu...
