I miss Ruffles Ranch chips, they were available late 80s early 90s and were amazing! They have made others but none as good as the OG Ruffles Ranch. I also miss the kool-aid flavor Mountain Berry Punch, it was so delicious but alas has not been seen on shelves for a very long time. :(

Word.

A lot of the fast food stuff in this thread actually still exists. It's up to each franchise owner to order them, such as McD's fried apple pies.

Magic Milk Mix.
It was like chocolate milk mix, but it came in flavors like Orange Cream, Bubble Gum, Cotton Candy and Banana. They sound weird, but they were actually pretty good.

They were made only for Walmart stores, but they stopped making them, so now they're impossible to get.

Citrus Cooler Gatorade. I don't think I've seen that shit around here since when you could still buy Gatorade in the glass bottles.

My favorite drink, haven't had it since the glass bottle days but I hear they still sell it in the deep south. Sam's Club will order it for you, but only by the pallet.

I don't know for sure, but Taco Bell's caramel apple empanada has to be close. Similarly, I'd like have Wendy's apple dumpling I remember from when I was a kid. If I remember it, it must be good. Though their are probably better things now.

Also:
arch deluxe
mama lina's frozen ravioli
chungs frozen vegetable eggrolls
pilsbury "the big cookie" (probably not called that)
bagel dogs (some grocery store brand)
peanut butter twix
fazoli's meatball sub (i swear it was awesome)
every sci-fi series


hmmm.... it's hard to remember what you used to like.

Edit: Add me to the list of people that miss surge. And i actually miss non laser mouses. Would remove the ball and play with it during class. Im surprised no one has said twinkies ahaaha to soon i guess.

I see PB Twix on a daily basis. And Fazoli's was greasy and disgusting from what I remember. My local one got replaced years ago and I haven't heard anyone complain.

Jones Soda in cans. It got too costly for them to keep selling them in cans which is why they abandoned that market. Such a shame too since their product is generally amazing.

New sig coming soon.

I miss hot cheeto fireballs. And i remember some chocolate chip cookie cereal commercial with a dog. But most of all (that I can remember) I miss Where's Waldo. I use to love those books.

Pepsi Blue


The only reason I remember that was because I threw it all up after I got carbon monoxide poisoning. I remeber that sucked so bad I threw up like around 7 times back to back, but for some reason when I vommed the first time I remember thinking "oh no my pepsi blue" :drool:

There is a fan that I bought several years ago that I still have. I've been meaning to get another one but now all they sell is those crappy Lasco fans. I haven't been able to find another Atlantic Breeze in ages.

Mr. Pibb. Well not really. I've never tasted it and I wonder what it's like.

Hydrox cookies, as they were always cheaper than Oreos.

Mr. Pibb = Coke's answer to Dr. Pepper. Tasted nearly identical from what I can remember. Pibb Xtra on the other hand fucking sucks and the cinnamon or whatever they added to the recipe just ruined the drink for me.

this x1000, OG Pibb was great and was very similar to DP, I actually liked it better than DP but that new Xtra Pibb stuff is horrible. It makes me wonder why they have had it this long instead of going back to the original. Now my favorite sodas are DP and Cherry Coke.

Some fast food places around me have Mr. Pibb as a fountain drink. I like it a lot better than Dr. Pepper.

Even though people think of Hydrox as the knock-off Oreo, I'm pretty sure they were around first.

Its too bad you're still a prick with a stupid gimmick.

I'll tack on Shoprite cola. It was the only store brand cola I liked. They still have it, but years ago they changed the recipe to something I find undrinkable.

All the PB Twix now have chocolate cookie instead of the vanilla, and they aren't as good. Also I will second the triangle nacho cheese pizza rolls mentioned earlier. I was just thinking about them this other day.


I also miss black peppercorn doritos and the original Pitch Black Mt Dew.

Here's just a few I can think of off the top of my head:

Doritos 3D
Sprite Remix and Berry Remix (both way better than regular sprite IMO).
Butterfinger BB's
Wendy's chicken strips
Butterfinger Crisp (can't find them around here although I'm sure they still make them)
Wonderball with the toy inside

There are plenty of others I'm sure, just can't think of them at the moment.

Huh??? I buy them in cans all the time from Kroger's or Marsh (Indiana regional). Unfortunately, they are only available in 8 packs instead of 12 packs now. I guess if you get desperate, you can order cans of WhoopAss from Amazon.

Since I'm here, add ALL Sega consoles. The knock-offs (licensed and non-licensed) are nice but not the same.:cry:

Mcdonald's Hot Dog Nuggets. I use to love eating those when there wasn't a Nathan's at the food court ... Add Nathan's to the list.

Taco Bell's Taquitos. Both steak and chicken ones.

Last year, Target stopped carrying Garlic Parmesan and Rosemary Garlic potato chips through their Archer Farms brand. Best chips I ever had.

Keebler use to have a fudge sandwich cookie that I use to love. It was in a blue box and it has fudge cream between the cookie part(also made with fudge). It was even better with milk.

I was thinking of Ecto Cooler too. I also missed Squeezit.

I also miss Babbages and Nintendo Power.

Holy crap, man! This has been gone so long, I actually forgot what it was called. I used to love this stuff and would drink it all the time after my basketball games when I was growing up. Apparently, people have been petitioning Pepsi to bring it back for years...and have even gone as far as figuring out how to make it themselves. Crazy!

I wasn't aware they still made cans. Nobody around here sells them any more from what I can tell. Heck they don't even show cans on their site any more outside of Whoop Ass.

Same here.
