Kraft Jalapeno Cheese

It's just not the same making Spinach Madeline, that Louisiana holiday staple, without it.

And you say that you wouldn't eat that? Well, you don't know what you are missing, bub.

When I was a kid there was a pudding product that was portable instant pudding. I remember putting it in my school lunchbox.

There was a plastic container with a lid that you put milk in, added the pudding powder, capped it and then shook it for a minute or so until it was pudding. A sort of instant-instant pudding, no mixer needed. :blink:

Anyone else remember this product?

I recall the butterscotch pudding was that gold color that was so peculiar to the late 60's and early 70's kitchen appliances. It was like eating Harvest Gold spackle. :laugh:

KOK, I am almost positive that in a late night web surf I read that Marathon bars are indeed gone from the earth. My brother and I used to get one to split when we were kids at the gas station down the road (we lived OUT in the country). We would put it on the dashboard on the way home to get all soft and melty then procede to pull it apart into a chocolate-y caramel mess when we got home. I was trying to find them to give my brother for Christmas. No dice.

My latest trip to Trader Joes revealed that they have done away with the blister peanuts... I will miss them.

Anybody know who else sells such things and what they're called? Google reveals that "blister peanuts" is a TJ-ism, rather than a commonly used trade description.

Have you tried the Cadbury UK Curly Wurly bars? I'm told they are similar.

Back in the 80s, maybe early 90s, Quaker used to make a rice cake that was either nacho cheese or taco flavored. They were crunchy, salty and just a little bit spicy. I loved them but have not been able to find them for years. They were the perfect snack (for me at least).

Doritos Taco flavor. They were available until the early 90's. I was working in a convenience store in 1992-1993 and had the Frito Lay salesman track down a few bags for me. Took him a couple of weeks to get some, and they completely disappeared after that. They were good, and I was holding out hope for it being reintroduced as one of the newer flavors with a different name, but that recipe is not around in any form anymore.


Screw it. It's a Butterball.

there was a candy in the 90s called "Power Hose" that looked like a slim, pink, can of shaving cream with a clear hose extending from the nozzle. You would put the hose in your mouth and slowly squirt an expanding pink foam into your mouth. The flavor was a pretty generic citric acid taste but it was really good and so much fun. It was such a strange idea but somehow I loved it.

Fruit Stripe gum is still around. I found Adams gum recently too. The cherry flavor brought back so many memories... The flavor lasts all of 30 seconds, but it was such a blast from the past.
