Another thing I miss (not really for the taste, just the nostalgia) are those little juice drinks that come in the clear plastic barrel with the foil lid. I think they're still around, but I haven't had them in probably 15 or so years.

Also, Nesquik Cookies and Cream. God damn that stuff is good. I used to get it in the premade bottles from Safeway some years ago and one day it just disappeared. Apparently it used to also be available in powdered form.


Try the Hershey's Cookies 'n Cream.

I remember getting these a lot as a kid. A few years ago I was at my older sister's house, and she had some. I tried one. It was awful. I couldn't figure out if it was a changed recipe or if they are really just awful and I couldn't tell as a kid. It's that purple stuff.

That purple stuff won't hunt, monsignor.

I miss the Super Nintendo, Scud the Disposable Assassin, Mystery Science Theater, Carnivale and even though it got creepy and weird in season 2, Reaper.

Centurions, Inhumans, He-Man and Star Control 2 also come to mind.

Season 2 of Reaper was fucking awesome. Damn shame they didn't see it through.

I've eaten that Nintendo cereal. I'm trying hard to remember if it came in two seperate pouches or both flavors were mixed together. Even as an 8 year old in the 80s, I thought it was crap.

One thing I can't seem to find, and haven't in over 10 years is little self serving cups of flavored pata that costco had for lunches. (Alfredo, Macaroni, butter). Made for a nice quick little lunch.
Haven't seen them since maybe 2001.
I still check when I go to Costco. Every. Single. Time.

That was the one with Zelda and I think SMB, right? I ate the shit out of that and Batman cereal. I looked in a cabinet earlier and saw my old Super Mario Bros plates and it made me think about the cereal and my Zelda/SMB lunchbox.

I just remembered one of my favorite 90s shows, Northern Exposure. I loved that show for about the first 3 seasons, before it went to shit.

Best tasting cola ever. Easily better than coke or pepsi (even the sugar versions). I recently found a few cans at a store and bought out their entire stock. Delicious.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

Salsa Doritos and for those of us in the New Orleans area, Hubig's Pies.
Also, Gatorade Citrus Cooler is readily available in south Louisiana.

I guess I'm the reason it was discontinued. I couldn't stand the stuff! Ever try Coca-cola Black? Awful!

I recently had a Coke the way it was meant o be, in a glass bottle and sweetened with sugar, that I miss.

A lot of stores now (and probably until the end of March) have the Kosher for Passover Coke, that has the sugar instead of corn syrup. It's only available in a 2 liter bottle and it has a yellow bottle cap to tell the difference from the other regular Coke 2 liter bottles. It's a good way to stock up if you don't mind the 2 liter bottles.

I miss the local video rental store I had growing up. Every Friday night my mom would take me to browse through the NES, SNES, and Sega games.

3 games. 3 days. 3 dollars.

I lessen the unhealthy food that I always eat before.

like pizza, pasta, burgers and many more.

that's why I miss it sometimes.

Oh, man. Now you got me started.

MLB Slugfest - My brother had MLB Slugfest 20-04 for PS2. I spent HOURS getting myself into trouble on that one. THE most fun baseball game series EVER.

NFL Street 1 or 2 - 2 was the best football game ever. Period. I still have a blast on it on my PS2. NFL Street 3 with updated rosters, please?

Jak and Daxter - Need I say more? The last game (Lost Frontier) was so bad that I can't even describe it in words. Naughty Dog better be working on a new title themselves or so help me...


Now, onto the food!

Handi-Snacks with vanilla/sprinkled icing or chocolate icing. - Those things were the most addicting things on the planet. Man, do I miss those. :cry:

Kudos granola bars - Best. Granola. Bars. EVER! I can still get them at Sam's Club, but they're scarce. Usually, every one else beats me to it.

Surge - Has been listed numerously. I need not go on.

Vault/Vault Red - The red stuff was evil. I could knock out a bottle without knowing it. Best energy drink ever.

Mountain Dew: Midnight Black - Mountain Dew fused with grape. Tastes way better than it sounds. If they would bring this back permanently, I'd jump for joy until my legs fall off. :applause:


That's about it for now. I'll come back with something else.

This. There's also sugar-sweetened Sprite and Fanta. I even see them in some gas stations. But this could also have to do with the fact that I live in Texas and they're made in Mexico.

Kudos granola bars - Best. Granola. Bars. EVER! I can still get them at Sam's Club, but they're scarce. Usually, every one else beats me to it.

I recommend trying Chewy Dipps granola bars. Very similar.

I never seem to see that around here. I'm in the south, that probably has something to do with it, not a large Jewish population around here. There is one place I can get it, a Mexican restaurant in town sells them, but no general stores.

Depends on the local bottling company, but in the Washington DC area they sell Pepsi Throwback and Mountain Dew Throwback. It's the original design/packaging with sugar as a sweetener.

Some stores have started to carry the glass bottle colas too, Coke, Pepsi, RC; some have sugar some are corn syrup. They are usually located in the Hispanic/jewish area, or where the more expensive sodas are (IBC Root Beer, Jones, etc.)
