    I miss pudding pops. Unless they just don't sell them here anymore. How great was the mixed box of frozen pudding on a stick?

      lol Morgan, I know! I don't remember that pizza but it sounds yummy! Usually when they make things new and improved they just don't cut it anymore.

      When you said breakfast it reminded me of cereals that are no longer. I didn't get these because my parents didn't buy sugary (read:good) cereals but I used to tear them up at my friends' houses!

      Remember Ghostbusters, Smurfberry Crunch, and Crispy Critters (scary commercial!)?

      YouTube - Ghostbuster Cereal

      YouTube - Smurfberry Crunch Cereal Commercial from 1981

        OMG they brought them back! They aren't Jello brand with the cool Bill Cosby association but some other brand makes pudding pops. I used to love love love the old school ones too!

                  Thanks Jamy! I'll have to go on a mission to find them!

                  I find that a lot of things don't taste as good as I remembered. I don't know how much is me or change in quality/formula/product.

                  The Orange Julius in the mall is not nearly as fabulous as they used to be. Or maybe it is because I wasn't allowed to have "bad" stuff growing up, so everything was a treat! LOL

                  Seriously, my friend's mom across the street would make Velveeta or Rice-a-Roni and I thought it was the greatest thing! My Nana lived with us so she made everything! Even crackers!

                  Does anyone remeber Fruzen Glagge Ice Cream? It really was the best stuff ever! They got sued by Haggen Daas, though they were both American companies, and it put them under. It was super creamy, fatty, yummy goodness!

                  Oh, and I was also infatuated with Crystal Pepsi. And Cherry 7-up. Remeber the comercials that were all black and white except the pink soda...

                    I love Orange Julius too...mmm Someone was telling me that back in the day they used to crack fresh egg whites into it to give it the froth, and that now they use a powder mix. Maybe that's it? I haven't had one in awhile but I used to love them :)

                    Oh I hear you on this! I used to be like the kid in the Stovetop Stuffing commercials - your mom is making Stovetop? I'm staying for dinner LOL We never got that stuff in my house, or Velveeta, or Rice-a-Roni, or Cheetos, or Fruit Loops, I cold go on and on. My parents were like your nana except for once and awhile I would get something "cool" as a treat.

                    When DH and I moved in together I was so excited to buy Stovetop at the store and make it, and he was like "what's the big deal?" because he always had that growing up..lol It was a big moment for me!

                    Yes!! I never knew what happened to it but it really was good.

                    Crystal Pepsi was a total fad but I thought it was the coolest drink ever! Well, that and Ecto Cooler by Hi-C (another discontinued drink)!


                    Good ones!

                      For me it was Space Food Sticks...does anyone else remeber these things from the 70's? They were made by Pillsbury and looked allot like a Slim Jim...but were kinda like a chocolate or peanut butter Tootsie Roll. I loved these things when I was a kid
                      Space Food Sticks - Retro, Nostalgic Treat from the "Space Age!" from the Victory Old-time Candy Store

                      I got really excited when I heard they re-released them and bought a box....they are not the same...I mean they aren't even sticks anymore!!
